  • Le Rhein-Westfalen-Shuttle trouve son rythme de croisière
    Le service fluvial créé par l’armement CCS Combined Container Service (Ludwigshafen) et l’exploitant de terminal DeCeTe (Duisburger Container-Terminalgesellschaft) dans le but de relier la région industrielle de Dortmund aux ports maritimes de Rotterdam et Anvers via le canal Rhin-Herne et transbordement à Duisbourg ou Krefeld, a trouvé le bon rythme et table sur un trafic de 5.000 TEU cette année. La région desservie par cette voie d’eau a un potentiel de marché de quelque 43.000 TEU par an et offre une répartition assez équilibrée des flux de marchandises dans les deux sens. Le service, qui a été baptisé Rhein-Westfalen-Shuttle (RWS), a une fréquence de trois départs par semaine.
