  • Superfast: Zeebrugge entrerait en ligne de compte pour la desserte de Great Yarmouth
    “Nous sommes à Zeebrugge pour y rester. Nous allons voir comment va évoluer notre nouveau service direct sur l’Ecosse, sur le port de Rosyth. Il nous faut stabiliser cette opération avant d’explorer d’autres options, mais nous venons également de remporter la soumission internationale pour l’exploitation d’un nouveau service ferry passagers-fret entre East Port Great Yarmouth au UK, et le port néerlandais Ijmuiden, mais rien ne permet de conclure que ce sera effectivement ce port continental qui sera touché. Nous pourrions toucher deux ports sur le continent, et Zeebrugge peut entrer en ligne de compte”. C’est ce que nous a déclaré Alexander P. Panagopulos, président & managing director de l’armement Superfast Ferries, filiale du groupe grec Attica Enterprises s.a., lors de l’inauguration du service ferry passagers-fret entre Zeebrugge et le port écossais de Rosyth (Edimbourg).

Mais l’ECG fait également remarquer à la Commission que la fiscalité n’est pas un moyen de promouvoir le transfert modal. Et elle rappelle qu’il est urgent qu’on harmonise les dimensions des porte-véhicules chargés.
