  • IFB acquiert les terminaux de Bressoux et Renory
    Dans le but de simplifier les opérations, Inter Ferry Boats (IFB) reprend la gestion des activités containérisées qu’Euro Combi Est (ECE) déploie sur le terminal trimodal de Renory et sur le terminal bimodal de Bressoux. “IFB est mieux placé sur le marché et dispose de plus d’atouts pour développer le trafic que nous en tant que petits entrepreneurs. Le groupe Portier, qui jusqu’ici détenait une part de 50% dans ECE, restera toutefois impliqué dans les opérations en tant que partenaire privilégié”, déclare Pierre Portier du groupe qui porte le même nom.
  • Leo Delwaide: “Les prochaines expansions portuaires Rive gauche ne sont pas discutables...”
    “Le problème de la darse à marée consitue une sérieuse hypothèque pour l’avenir du port d’Anvers. Les dégâts résultant de l’interruption des travaux sont considérables pour l’économie de la Flandre, et s’y ajoutent les plaintes des entrepreneurs. Une commission parlementaire a déjà eu l’occasion de constater de visu l’ampleur du désastre. J’espère que cette situation connaîtra une solution à court terme, et d’autres instances s’en occupent, sous peine de voir des clients quitter le port qui entamerait ainsi son déclin. Dans les milieux politiques, on commence à réaliser qu’il y a eu sur le plan juridique au niveau du Conseil d’Etat un déséquilibre entre l’intérêt individuel et l’intérêt de l’ensemble de la communauté. Les dégâts sont énormes et d’aucuns portent une grande responsabilité. Maintent, les tenants de l’environnement veulent parler, suite à l’ampleur de ce qui a été créé, mais en aucun cas, cela ne peut se traduire en moyen de pression pour limiter les prochaines expansions du port sur la Rive gauche. Il s’agit de la darse à marée pour laquelle il y a eu un concessus au Parlement flamand, le reste n’est pas discutable, le port doit pouvoir continuer à se développer au cours des prochaines années”. C’est ce qu’a déclaré l’échevin du port d’Anvers et président de l’Entreprise portuaire communale autonome Leo Delwaide lors de la traditionnelle réunion annuelle du conseil de concertation du port et de la présentation de son rapport.
  • Les transporteurs néerlandais plaident pour une aide à l’élimination des vieux camions
    Le président de l’association de transporteurs néerlandais Koninklijk Nederlands Vervoer (KNV), J.F. Jonker, a profité de la présence du ministre de l’Environnement, Jan Pronk, à l’assemblée annuelle de l’association pour plaider en faveur de mesures favorisant le retrait de la circulation des vieux camions. Il a dit que la réduction de la pollution est tout à l’intérêt des transporteurs. Mais il a également averti le ministre que les nouvelles normes sonores aux Pays-Bas sont irréalistes dans l’état actuel des choses.
  • Katoen Natie automatise l’administration et les activités opérationnelles sur base du logiciel Navision
    Le mois dernier, le prestataire de services logistiques annexe opérateur de terminaux Katoen Natie a entamé l’application du logiciel Navision Financials à toutes ses filiales dans le but d’automatiser leur administration. Les activités opérationnelles sont également progressivement automatisées depuis un an, via des applications logicielles conçues par la propre équipe EDP sur base de Navision. L’application du logiciel Financials se fait en coopération avec Navision Solution Center Computer Support, une filiale d’IBM. Pour Navision, il s’agit de la plus importante application en Belgique jusqu’à présent.
