  • Shipping severely hit by gales
    Shipping along the North Sea coasts was again severely hit by gales exceeding force 12 over the past few days. The car carrier Golden Fan, which was bound for the inner port of Bremerhaven, had to be berthed at the Columbuskaje due to the strong storm. During the berthing manoeuvre, which was assisted by the tugs Weser and Jade, the aft line broke. A third tug of Unterweser-Reederei had to be immediately deployed to berth the Golden Fan after a difficult turning manoeuvre was carried out on the Weser. Picture: Ralf Witthohn

  • Liaison Seine-Nord: le projet s’enlise
    La situation dans le dossier de la liaison Seine-Nord, qui doit permettre de relier le bassin de la Seine au grand réseau fluvial européen via l’Escaut et la Lys, est assez sombre. Le choix du tracé (fuseau) n’est toujours pas déterminé. De même, la décision de lancer les études d’avant-projet n’a pas encore été prise. Ce second point est le plus inquiétant, car c’est de lui que dépend la crédibilité des déclarations du gouvernement français quant à la volonté d’engager le projet d’une façon irréversible.
  • Simon Transportation obtient la protection du Chapitre 11
    Dick Simon Transportation, un des plus grands transporteurs routiers américains de charges complètes, a déposé le bilan lundi dernier et a demandé la protection du “Chapitre 11” (qu’il a obtenu) pour tenter de sortir de la grave crise financière qu’il traverse. Pour ce faire, il procédera à la vente d’une grande partie de son équipement. A l’issue du plan de redressement, son parc devrait avoir été réduit de 40% à 1.500 tracteurs et 2.200 semi-remorques. Il licenciera une même proportion de personnel. Dans les milieux du transport routier aux Etats-Unis, on se demande quel est le rôle de Jerry Moyes, le patron de Swift Transportation, dans cette affaire. Il avait pris le contrôle de Simon en octobre dernier.
  • Rouen veut développer davantage le cabotage
    Quand on parle du port de Rouen, on ne peut s’empêcher de faire un rapprochement avec Anvers et Hambourg, étant donné qu’il s’agit d’un centre maritime d’hinterland dépendant d’un grand fleuve, la Seine, et proche des marchés, en l’occurrence le grand bassin parisien. Au fil des années Rouen est devenu une grande plate-forme logistique où se cotoient tous les modes de transport, de même qu’y sont pratiquées toutes les disciplines inhérentes à la manipulation de tous les types de fret, car il s ‘agit d’un port multivalent. Sa localisation à l’intérieur des terres lui assurant par rapport aux ports côtiers un certain avantage en matière de coût de transport, le maritime étant de 20 à 30% moins cher que le transport terrestre, ce port français entend mettre cette situation à profit pour développer davantage la cabotage.
  • Le bénéfice net de NS a baissé de 44%
    Les résultats de NS ont sensiblement baissé l’année dernière. Le bénéfice net généré par les activités opérationnelles normales a régressé de 44% à 88 mio. d’EUR. Le bénéfice d’exploitation a quant à lui diminué de 162 mio. d’EUR en 2000 à 38 mio. d’EUR l’année dernière. Le CA a affiché 2,4 mia. d’EUR, contre 2,5 mia. d’EUR en 2000. La qualité et la prestation de services ont continué à régresser l’année dernière. La direction de NS avait décidé à la mi-2001 de privilégier les projets visant une amélioration de la qualité de base, programmes qui se poursuivent d’ailleurs cette année. Les efforts de qualité devraient encore peser longtemps sur le résultat d’exploitation.
