  • La SNCB compte sur le ”Main Hub” pour augmenter sa part de marché
    “Ce terminal est un exemple de la stratgie que notre groupe SNCB développe à Anvers premier port ferroviaire européen, qui est très important pour nos activités, de même que ce port a besoin de nous. Nous nous rencontrons donc dans les efforts en ce sens que nous voulons augmenter et y développer nos positions et par la même occasion celle du port scaldien dans le contexte de la rangée des ports du Nord. Ces 5 dernières années, nous avons augmenténotre part de marché fret de 1% par an, ce qui peut paraître modeste mais compte tenu de la croissance d’Anvers nous sommes satisfaits. La concentration des trafics sur ce centre est l’occasion d’organiser plus de trains-blocs à des fréquences plus élevées et vers plus de destinations, ce qui est également à l’avantage du port”. C’est ce qu’a déclaré E. Schouppe administrateur délégué de la SNCB à l’occasion de l’inauguration officielle mercredi dernier du “Main Hub” qu’exploite la filiale Inter Ferry Boats.

Il faut en effet bien garder en tête que la technique du hub s’applique au trafic dit diffus, de wagons isolés, en attendant que le volume justifie la création d’un train complet qui, alors, ne passe plus par le triage de Metz.
