  • Autocare Europe se développe sur des créneaux de marché sur l'axe est/ouest
    Autocare Europe (ACE), opérateur ferroviaire spécialisé dans le transport automobile, est né il y a cinq ans en tant que filiale conjointe des chemins de fer belges et britanniques, de Ferry-Boats et de Cobelfret. A la veille de l'ouverture du tunnel sous la Manche, l'objectif était de générer en premier lieu des trafics dans cette direction, mais la réalité en a décidé autrement. Les producteurs automobiles accordent une grande importance aux coûts. De plus, les ferries avaient réalisé une telle offre, qu'ils assuraient la navette dans les mêmes délais de temps que le tunnel sous la Manche. La compagnie s'est alors orientée vers l'axe est-ouest, et non sans succès. ACE s'est en effet développé en un important opérateur de niche qui forme désormais un maillon indispensable dans la chaîne logistique offerte par le groupe Cobelfret.

  • Rail freight shunted out of Sydney metro
    Weekday rail freight services will be shunted out of the Sydney metropolitan area for two weeks, starting from April 3 as part of State Rail's first "dress rehearsal for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

  • Is the Surface Transportation Board merely a cipher dutifully carrying out congressional instructions? Or is it an independent policy-making agency? Those questions fueled ardent debate between STB Chairman Linda Morgan and Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D.-W.Va., when the Surface Transportation Subcommittee held what is likely to be its only hearing on STB reauthorization. Morgan was treated to a bipartisan display of displeasure toward the board's handling of railroad mergers and captive shipper rate complaints. Morgan defended her agency's record, and asked for a five-year reauthorization with no substantive changes.
  • Eliminating operating crew fatigue and determining the technical dimensions of a train collision-avoidance system are emerging as principal issues in congressional reauthorization of a federal rail safety program. FRA Administrator Jolene Molitoris intends to rivet FRA's collaborative Safety Assurance and Compliance Program on employee fatigue, which is blamed for as many as one-third of all train accidents.
  • Money here, money there, money everywhere. There's money all around in the record-breaking $217 billion and $214 billion highway bills approved by the House and the Senate, respectively. Trucking interests are ecstatic over the prospect of a 40 percent rise in federal spending on highways. Plus, there's the added bonus that the Highway Trust Fund would be taken off budget, if conferees agree to the House version of the bill. President Clinton is threatening a veto of this potentially budget-busting bill, but highway backers say there's money in the trust fund to cover everything.
  • Overriding the objections of both Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe, the STB will consider a bid by the Texas Mexican Railway and its part owner, the Kansas City Southern, to acquire trackage between Houston and Beaumont, Texas, and other property from congestion-plagued Union Pacific. The STB decision could lead to consideration of a number of proposals that would impose additional conditions on the UP-Southern Pacific merger, specifically to address service problems in Houston and the Gulf Coast area.
  • The U.S. Postal Service wants to be the first to cultivate China as a booming mail order market. Through its three-year-old Global Package Link service, the USPS is courting small to midsize businesses to print up catalogs and let the Postal Service do the rest. Thanks to its arrangement with China Post, the USPS is able to offer a local partner for U.S. companies wishing to peddle their products in the huge, virtually untapped market.
  • It's been a mad March for Asian cargo coming into the United States, and April looks even crazier. "We've never seen anything like it," said Thomas M. Eskesen, director of strategic line management for Maersk Line's Pacific service. But carriers aren't exactly clapping their hands for joy - they're holding them out and asking for more money. They're planning freight increases - not, they say, to take advantage of the busy shipping season, but to make up for the losses they've incurred because of a drop in rates.
  • Hellmann International Forwarders wouldn't have jumped headlong into the perishables business last year if it hadn't been for the Internet. The Miami-based forwarder has created a website devoted to shippers of perishables. It shows its customers not only where their shipment is, but its temperature and quality as well. Still in the works is an application that will allow buyers of perishables to place orders through the website.

  • Maybe it's the unseasonably warm weather. Or that mysterious antigravity force that's been puzzling scientists. Whatever the reason, the urge to merge has led to a surge of acquisitions, mergers and partnerships among supply-chain software companies. Warehouse software vendor Optum Software announced it will merge with transportation software developer Metasys, while United Parcel Service and PeopleSoft agreed to integrate their software distribution and order management software.
  • Railways and the Canadian Wheat Board have come out swinging at the start of public hearings by the Canadian Transportation Agency into last winter's grain transportation problems. Almost lost in the legal jousting has been the fact that this winter grain has moved smoothly.
