  • Dunkerque se prépare à la desserte d’un mega-carrier
    Le port autonome de Dunkerque se prépare activement à réunir toutes les conditions qui devraient lui permettre d’attirer un grand mega-carrier ou, à défaut, d’importants trafics containérisés dans le contexte Est-Ouest. Le terminal à containers du port ouest est en cours de développement et devrait, dès octobre 2003, être à même de réceptionner des PC de 310 m de long calant 14,20 m de tirant d’eau. “Nous serons ainsi bien positionnés pour la desserte des trafics Est-Ouest étant donné que nous répondrons à deux critères de base, à savoir la fiabilité et les tirant d’eau allant jusqu’à 14,20 m en 2004”, a dit Bruno Vergobbi, directeur général du PA de Dunkerque lors d’une conférence de presse donnée mercredi dernier à Paris.
  • ECT propose des guichets dédiés aux alliances au Delta Terminal
    Le manutentionnaire rotterdamois ECT a introduit un nouveau système de guichets sur son Delta Terminal. Les guichets sur l’avant-terrain sont désormais répartis selon les alliances, le guichet auquel un chauffeur doit s’adresser étant fonction de l’alliance/armement pour lequel il roule. Dans la mesure du possible, les collaborateurs de guichets sont également liés à une alliance de sorte à maîtriser l’information propre à un groupe restreint d’armements. Les chauffeurs peuvent de la sorte être aidés plus rapidement. Ces guichets “dédiés”optimalisent le service aux armements et aux chauffeurs.
  • La nouvelle stratégie de BTZ sera définie dans les six semaines
    Le constructeur américain de semi-remorques Wabash National, qui détenait la totalité des parts de la société ETZ, et par là de l’opérateur bimodal BTZ, s’est défait de l’ensemble de ses actions (voir LL du 23/01/02). Il les a vendues pour 51% à la société Bimodal Verwaltungsgesellschaft (BVG), une filiale du groupe allemand TX Logistik, et pour 49% à la société ferroviaire Brenner Schienentransport AG (STR), une filiale de l’exploitant de l’autoroute du Brenner en Autriche, Brenner Autobahn AG. Les deux nouveaux actionnaires deviennent de ce fait détenteurs de la licence RoadRailer pour l’Europe. Ils ont l’intention d’étendre sensiblement la palette des trafics.
