  • Est-Ouest: la réduction de la capacité en slots aurait peu d’impact pour l’instant
    Si l’on croit le rapport trimestriel de ComPair Data Inc intitulé “World Liner Supply” la réduction totale de la capacité en slots containers sur les trois segments de trafics Est-Ouest aurait pour l’instant un impact marginal pour les armements concernés. En fait, ce point de vue ne nous surprend guère étant donné que cette réduction de capacité n’a réellement démarré qu’en novembre/décembre et que les restructurations des services auxquels procèdent des alliances et autres groupes d’armements ne prendront leur plein effet que dans le courant de ce premier trimestre.
  • SAS Cargo confie son camionnage international à Kim Johansen
    La division “fret” du transporteur aérien scandinave, SAS Cargo, a signé une lettre d’intention pour un nouveau contrat de cinq ans avec la société de transport routier Kim Johansen International Transport A/S. Celle-ci assurera les services de camionnage international de fret aérien, tant pour SAS Cargo que pour SAS Airline.
  • La navigation intérieure peu affectée par l’hiver rigoureux en Europe occidentale
    L’hiver rigoureux qui depuis quelques semaines déjà fait gémir l’Europe centrale et du Sud sous le froid, affecte également la navigation intérieure. En Allemagne, les autorités compétentes ont décidé le week-end dernier de fermer certaines voies navigables et notre pays doit également faire face à la formation de plaques de glace sur la Meuse à hauteur d’Anseremme et sur le Canal du Centre.
  • L’Inspection de la Navigation intérieure doit faire face à de nouveaux défis
    Les bateliers sont confrontés depuis deux ans à des contrôles sur le réseau fluvial belge suite à la création de l’Inspection de la Navigation intérieure en 1999. Ces contrôles se concentrent principalement sur les documents qui doivent être présents à bord des unités fluviales (voir LL du 08/01), mais ils seront étendus - tant au niveau du contenu que du groupe cible - à l’avenir. Sont entre autres visés: les unités des entrepreneurs de travaux hydrauliques ainsi que celles des autorités portuaires.
