  • France: le trafic rhénan a légèrement régressé après l’année record 2000
    Selon les chiffres de Voies Navigables de France (VNF) et du Service de la Navigation de Strasbourg, le trafic de marchandises sur le Rhin franco-allemand à hauteur des écluses de Gambsheim a représenté un volume global de 24,937 millions de tonnes l’année dernière, ce qui constitue une baisse de 3% par rapport à l’année record 2000.

  • P&O Ports continue à plaider pour le partage de la future darse à marée à Anvers
    “Notre candidature pour le deuxième terminal du versant est de la future darse à marée est toujours d’actualité. L’octroi de cette concession n’est d’ailleurs plus inscrit à l’agenda de l’Entreprise portuaire et ce n’est plus, semble-t-il, une condition essentielle pour PSA, de sorte que l’accord de reprise de Hesse Noord Natie serait finalisé sans cette concession.” C’est ce qu’a déclaré hier au cours d’une réunion de presse Roger Roels, le directeur de P&O Ports pour l’Europe et l’Afrique, qui était assisté de Paul Valkeniers, managing director de l’implantation anversoise. Selon lui, la meilleure solution pour satisfaire tout le monde reste sa proposition initiale, qui consiste à partager ladite darse en réservant le versant ouest pour Hesse Noord Natie et le versant est pour P&O Ports.
