  • L. de Palacio: les ports du Sud ont intérêt à faire passer la proposition de l’UE sur l’accès aux services portuaires.
    “Le short sea va devoir jouer un rôle déterminant et bien plus important qu’aujourd’hui. Il doit y avoir des autoroutes de la mer tout comme il y a des autoroutes terrestres, concept lancé en Italie et que nous voulons promouvoir dans certaines régions. Le short sea a besoin d’aides, non pas éternellement, mais essentiellement au démarrage. Nous avons maintenant des initiatives aux niveaux nationaux, bilatéral et trilatéral et de l’UE. Toutefois, l’argent est nécessaire et c’est la raison pour laquelle nous venons de proposer un nouveau programme sous le nom de Marco Polo”. Loyola de Palacio vice-présidente de l’UE et commissaire auTransport, qui participait récemment au sommet “Short sea” à Livourne a mis en évidence les objectifs dudit programme.
  • “NYK Leo” a généré 2.500 mouvements durant sa première escale
    Avec un peu de retard à cause du brouillard dans les eaux britanniques, le flambant neuf navire “NYK Leo” de l’armement japonais Nippon Yusen Kaisha a dimanche soir fait escale au port d’Anvers. A peine 24h plus tard le navire a quitté le port scaldien après le déchargement de 900 containers et le chargement de 1.600 containers à bord de l’unité de 6.160 TEU, qui a été alignée une seule fois sur le B-loop de la Grand Alliance.
  • Navistar ne voit pas de reprise du marché du camion aux Etats-Unis en 2002
    Le constructeur américain indépendant de camions Navistar a revu à la baisse ses prévisions pour l’ensemble du marché du camion cette année. Il l’a fait à l’occasion de la publication de ses résultats financiers pour le premier trimestre comptable, qui ont affiché une perte de 56 mio. de USD (contre 35 mio. un an auparavant). Selon le constructeur (qui commercialise ses camions sous la marque International), le marché demeurera déprimé cette année en raison de la poursuite de la baisse dans le secteur des poids lourds et de la faiblesse de la demande dans celui des moyens tonnages.
    Rhin d’Acier: le dialogue belgo-néerlandais va reprendre
    Ce n’est pas parce que KPMG a remis son rapport concernant les différences entre experts néerlandais et belges sur les estimations des coûts pour des travaux au Rhin d’Acier que tout est réglé, loin s’en faut. Premièrement, l’étude semble bien se garder de “désigner un vainqueur”, et les communiqués ministériels officiels sont d’ailleurs muets. Deuxièmement et surtout, c’est sur le principe même des coûteux ouvrages d’art qu’il y a problème: tant la SNCB que surtout le port d’Anvers y sont opposés.
