  • L’importance de la France diminue pour le groupe Heppner
    En 2000, le groupe français Heppner a réalisé 1,986 mia de FRF (302,76 mio d’EUR) de CA. La messagerie routière (France + Europe) a encore généré 46% du CA global. Mais l’importance relative de la France tend à diminuer. Cette diversification géographique s’accompagne d’une tendance similaire en ce qui concerne les différentes spécialités développées. A la messagerie, viennent en effet s’ajouter de plus en plus les apports de l’aérien, du maritime et bien sûr de la logistique. On note même un positionnement affirmé sur le marché du e-commerce.
  • Le Livre Blanc récolte - déjà - les critiques de l’IRU
    Le noveau Livre Blanc de la Commission européenne sur la politique des transports de l’UE pour les dix années à venir n’est toujours pas sorti, et pourtant il suscite déjà dans les milieux routiers une véritable levée de boucliers. “Il a pour but de séparer la croissance du transport et la croissance économique, et de promouvoir le rail comme alternative efficace au transport routier, posant des bases irréalistes pour accéder au développement durable. Celui-ci nécessite plutôt des actions au niveau de l’innovation, des incitations et de l’infrastructure”, dit l’IRU dans un communiqué. La FNTR française, quant à elle, dit qu’il faudra “gérer l’expansion dans un esprit de dialogue et une volonté de modernité”.
  • La CE veut harmoniser les divers principes de tarification pour l’usage de l’infrastructure
    La Commission européenne vient d’approuver (voir LL du 19/7) plusieurs ‘orientations politiques’ pour son Livre Blanc concernant la future politique de transport de l’Union européenne. Ces ‘orientations’ constitueront la base d’une soixantaine de propositions qui seront énumérées en détail dans le Livre Blanc que la Commission acceptera formellement en septembre. L’objectif de ce document est de pourvoir l’Union européenne d’un programme d’action qui devrait progressivement séparer la croissance du transport de la croissance économique.
