ESC zit niet stil

europeanunionchinaBron: European Shippers’ Council – Godfried Smit- 13/10/17

In de voorbije weken en maanden, mede naar aanleiding van het incident bij Rasstadt, heeft ESC erg veel activiteiten ontplooid voor Rail. Daarnaast werd ook aandacht besteed aan tal van andere zaken die we even voor u opsommen:
As a consequence of a landslide in Germany on the 12th of August 2017, the traffic on the important corridor from Rotterdam to Italy has been nearly impossible for 7 weeks. For shippers, it was difficult to get capacity on the other modes, or only at a very high rate. For some shippers, such as steel producers or those shipping dangerous goods, no real alternative could be found. ESC was very happy to hear that the track was finally reopened, and this happened earlier than expected.

There are more positive developments for shippers. The RailNetEurope is working on a better alignment of timetables in Europe which would prevent delays of cargo trains caused mainly by the priority of passenger trains during rush-hours.

It is also interesting to see how supply chains using the rail routes within One Belt One Road initiative are managing their challenges. The initiative covers many countries and requires cooperation on different levels. In this regard, we would like to remind you of the international conference that ESC is organising together with the College of Europe on logistical connections with China http://europeanshippers.eu/events/registration-open-conference-belt-road-initiative/ on the 23rd November in Bruges.

We would also like to take the opportunity to remind you of the ESC Maritime Day 2017
