  • Liège Airport traitera au moins 300.000 tonnes en 2002

  • Mærsk Sealand prépare-t-il l’offensive de la reprise?
    L’armement danois Mærsk Sealand s’est constamment distingué par des initiatives qui lui ont toujours donné une longueur d’avance sur ses concurrents dans le secteur du liner containérisé. Dès lors, il ne serait pas surprenant que les nouvelles qui circulent actuellement dans les mlilieux des courtiers, bien que non confirmées ni contredites par l’intéressé, trouvent concrétisation dans les faits. Ces rumeurs font état d’une commande éventuelle au chantier naval d’Odense, qui fait partie du même groupe, d’une série de six porte-containers de la classe “S”. Cette classe, dont il existe déjà plusieurs exemplaires, a officieusement une capacité de 8.000 TEU, mais les caractéristiques des nouveaux navires seraient encore extrapolées (surtout dans la largeur) pour atteindre une capacité de 10.000 TEU. Une première unité serait livrée à la fin de cette année, les autres suivraient jusqu’en 2004.
