  • DAT peut enfin déployer ses ailes
    La nouvelle compagnie aérienne créée à partir de DAT jouera en premier lieu la carte européenne. A court terme, il sera étudié si l’Afrique peut également être desservie.

  • La Febiac veut créer un forum permanent pour la mobilité durable

L’organisation des constructeurs automobiles européens se trouve sur la même longueur d’onde à ce niveau.
  • Le port de Douvres renoue avec la croissance

Cette évolution semble indiquer que le port ferry britannique le plus important commence progressivement à se remettre de la période difficile qui a suivi l’adaptation de la législation européenne en termes de ventes hors taxes.
  • Hausse de 3,9% des tarifs dans la messagerie en Allemagne
    Les transporteurs routiers allemands spécialisés dans la messagerie et le groupage vont augmenter leurs prix de 3,9% au 1er février 2002 afin de compenser la forte hausse du prix de revient. C’est ce qu’a anoncé l’association de transporteurs allemands BSL. Cette hausse intervient après une autre augmentation, de 5% cette fois, en mai 2001. Le 1er janvier, la BSL avait publié un communiqué dans lequel elle annonçait que le consommateur devrait payer la hausse des charges infligées aux transporteurs. Cette intention est donc très rapidement traduite dans les faits.
