  • Frans Maas a connu une année 2001 en demi-teintes
    Les résultats financiers de Frans Maas pour l’année 2001 ont été fortement influencés par la nette baisse de l’activité au second semestre. De ce fait, des coûts de réorganisation ont dû être effectués. Toutefois, les marges ont pu être maintenues et l’activité logistique a été maintenue à un bon niveau. De plus, le réseau d’expédition a été renforcé. “Dès lors, nous ne parlons pas d’une mauvaise année, mais d’une année moindre”, a déclaré Henk Benjamins, le président de la société de transport et de logistique néerlandaise au cours d’une conférence de presse.
  • Le Pilotage flamand veut améliorer la continuité et la qualité de ses services
    Le directeur général du Dienst Autonoom Beheer Loodswezen (DAB Loodswezen) Jacques D’Havé a mardi soir à Gand promis que les problèmes relatifs à la disponibilité des pilotes seront résolus à partir de cette année. Il a également tracé les grandes lignes d’un plan d’action visant à améliorer la prestation de services en matière de pilotage. Une concertation plus aisée avec les usagers - entre autres concernant les tarifs - et avec le propre personnel, et une collaboration étroite avec les pilotes néerlandais de l’embouchure de l’Escaut sont deux des piliers sur lesquels repose ce plan. Jacques D’Havé a expliqués à la fin de la présentation des résultats son projet d’une enquête de satisfaction menée à la fin de l’an dernier auprès des capitaines de navire, des agents maritimes et des autorités portuaires (voir article page 3).
  • Stinnes établit de nouveaux records

L’an dernier, Stinnes Logistics a mis l’accent sur la croissance organique et l’accroissement de l’efficacité en termes de logistique chimique. 2002 sera surtout placée sous le signe de la division de transport.
  • E. Bruyninckx (PA Anvers): “La concurrence doit subsister dans le port”
    “Nous croyons qu’une concurrence doit subsister dans le port, qu’elle doit être maintenue. Notre forte croissance résulte d’ailleurs de cette concurrence qui s’est manifestée au cours des années dans ce port et nous veillerons via la politique des concessions à ce qu’elle subsiste”. C’est ce qu’a déclaré Eddy Bruyninckx, administrateur délégué de l’Entreprise portuaire communale autonome d’Anvers lors d’une interview réalisée par une chaîne de TV locale “canal Z”. Le manager portuaire répondait ainsi à une question sur l’impact positif ou négatif qu’allait avoir la prise de contrôle majoritaire de la société fusionnée Hesse Noord Natie par le groupe de Singapour PSA Corp.
