  • Eval Europe double la capacité de production à Anvers
    Eval Europe, une filiale de l’entreprise chimique Kuraray, a décidé de doubler sa capacité de production à Anvers à 24.000 tonnes par an d’ici la fin 2003.

  • Containers-citernes: Eurovos XL a fait faillite
    La société néerlandaise de transport de produits chimiques et d’aliments par containers-citernes Eurovos XL, dont le siège est à Oss et qui est un des plus grands opérateurs du secteur en Europe, a été mise en faillite jeudi par les tribunaux de commerce de ‘s Hertogenbosch et Rotterdam. Trois curateurs (L. Deterink, J. Dingemans et J. Stadig) ont été nommés. Ils tenteront d’établir dans quelle mesure il est possible de poursuivre les activités. La nouvelle a fait l’effet d’une bombe aux Pays-Bas, mais dans le secteur, on se doutait que cela tournerait mal, entre autres en raison des prix pratiqués.
  • La SNCB se prépare à augmenter sa capacité fret

On ne peut qu’applaudir à cette idée. Reste à savoir si elle est réalisable. Ce qui est certain, c’est qu’Anvers est confronté sur le plan ferroviaire à des problèmes qui demandent des solutions urgentes.
