Vinci Park, subsidiary of the French construction and electrical engineering company, is developing its
activities in New York City. Laz Parking, a 50%-owned subsidiary of Vinci Park was awarded a 7-year
contract on March 5, 2009 to operate 34 car parking lots, for a total of 13,600 parking spots, located
close to New York City subway stations. The contract was awarded by the New York Metropolitan
Transport Authority, due to the innovative nature of the solutions proposed by Vinci Park to improve
service to customers. | 05/03/2009 | 17:56 | Transport et infrastructures Laz Parking, filiale à 50 % de
Vinci Park, a remporté un contrat de sept ans pour la gestion de 34 parkings représentant au total plus
de 13 600 places de stationnement, situés à proximité de quatre lignes du métro de New-York. La
New-York Metropolitan Transport Authority a choisi Laz notamment parce que la société offrira aux
automobilistes des services s'inspirant de ceux proposés par Vinci Park en Europe. Laz Parking se
place ainsi en position de leader aux Etats-Unis dans le domaine du stationnement intermodal avec
plus de 200 parcs et 100 000 places de stationnement ainsi gérés, dans trois des plus grandes
agglomérations du pays : New-York, Washington et Boston <h3><span style="color:

relies in particular on a mastery of toll collection technology, making it possible to ensure continuity
between the parking facilities and public transport options, and on the fact that LAZ Parking offered to
install in the New York car parks a wide range of services based on those provided by VINCI Park in
Europe. LAZ Parking has thus become a market leader in the United States in the field of intermodal
parking, with more than 200 car parks and 100,000 parking spaces operated in this way in three of the
country's largest urban centres: New York, Washington and Boston. VINCI Park is European market
leader and a major worldwide in parking. It now operates more than 1.2 million parking spaces in
Europe and North America, generating revenue in 2008 of more than 600 million euros.

Trains from Asia to Europe, a DB success

The January 2008 DB Schenker trial which consisted in running a freight train from China to Germany
turned out to be a real success. Trans Eurasia, the DB Schenker branch in charge of the whole scheme,
has already been requested by many companies to handle their volumes. According to Harmut Albers,
head of Trans Eurasia, the demand amounts more than a hundred of clients. The craze for the project is
so that the DB brought forward to 2009 (instead of 2010) the date for the implementation of regular
shuttles between both countries. Talks are currently held with some of the companies that showed
interests to discuss feasibility matters. However, even though these are encouraging prospects, only
trials are run and the price of the transport service may be deterrent for some businesses. Moreover,
before volumes are allocated to train to cover this distance, administrative issues will first have to be
addressed. Also, critics said the main limit for the project to impose as a viable alternative to sea transit
lies on its limited capacity. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Computers shipped by trains from
South China to North Germany</span></h3> Fujitsu-Siemens Computers in collaboration with the DB
Schenker is running a dedicated one-off train from China to Germany. The train left Xiangtang (700
km northern Hong-Kong) on September, 19 with about 50,000 computer monitors and mobile phones
in 50 containers (40 ft ones). The expected transit time is 18 days. Moreover, the experimentation
brings new market prospects since the lead time to Moscow becomes 13 days.<!--more--> Note that,
rail European network standards don't allow long trains (roughly more than 700 metres). Therefore, as
the train is operated at its full length of 1,000 metres, at the Belarusian border, it will be split in order
to comply with the smaller measures of tracks and more restricted length standards. From company's
viewpoint, train appears as a trade-off between cost and speed. According to Fujitsu-Siemmens
director of logistics, air freight is admittedly fast enough, but too expensive to be a sustainable option.
On the contrary, deepsea shipping is too slow to keep up with the demand of the computer retail sector.
Also, the loss of value of goods in containers is estimated to €5 to €10 on a 28-35 days transit time
from China by sea. This argument is all the more sensitive that Fujitsu-Siemens deals with goods likely
to date quite quickly. In short, the rail costs 25% of the air and is 10 days shorter than sea. Therefore,
the company is urging Trans Eurasia to launch regular weekly – even bi-weekly – train services to
Europe. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Cars will be crossing over Siberia</span></h3> Mazda
recently declared the company is giving up its current transport plan for its vehicles intended to the
Russian market in favour of the Trans Eurasia service. Instead of being shipped by sea from Japan
(Hiroshima) to Germany (Bremerhaven) and being then carried by road up to Moscow, cars will be
directly sent by rail to the Russian capital from Zarubino (near Vladivostock), where the vehicles will
have been beforehand transported by sea from Hiroshima. Wagons used for that specific type of
transport will be fully-covered and double-decked ones. In total, the transit time is expected to go
down from 40 to 10 days. It is to note that as far as vehicles bound for West European countries, the
current transport organisation will be kept. <h3><span style="color:

Réseau Ferré de France (RFF), the French railway infrastructure owner and manager launched today a
call for proposals for Nîmes and Montpellier high speed rail bypass. The contractor will be in charge
of the project construction and operation, under a Partnership Contract (<em>Contrat de
Partenariat</em>, a new form of Public-Private Partnership. For more details about Partnership
Contracts, please see the three articles about the "First French-American Workshop on Public
Transportation &amp; Innovative Financing": <a title="First French-American Workshop on Public
Transportation &amp; Innovative Financing (1/3)" href="http://en.transport-

href="http://en.transport-expertise.org/index.php/2008/09/05/first-french-american-workshop-on-
public-transportation-innovative-financing-33/">3/3</a>) This new 70-kilometer long high speed rail
line, constitutes another extension toward Spain. It will be linked to the Méditerranée HSR line.
Moreover, these new tracks will also allow to remove freight traffic from Nîmes and Montpellier city
centers, as part of the Corridor D (Valence-Lyon-Turin-Budapest) of the European rail network. The
project will be financed jointly by the French National government, local governments (mostly
the Languedoc-Roussillon region), and the private sector.<!--more--> <h3><span style="color:

After the Deutsche Bahn (DB) launched its second experimentation of freight Trans-Siberian train,
SNCF, the French national railway operator, committed to run in three years time freight over the
12,000 kilometres separating France and China. In a recent meeting with Vladimir Iakounine, head of
Russian railway company, Guillaume Pépy, head of SNCF, discussed the eventuality of operating
freight trains on Russian lines. Guillaume Pépy said he wanted the SNCF to position onto the segment
of textile goods and toys which requires to arrive rapidly on the European market. SNCF has ensured
that it would take 10 days to cover the 12,000 kilometres long distance going through China,
Mongolia, Russia, Poland, Germany an France. To do so, two issues will have to be addressed. First,
reaching agreements with railway companies of each of these countries. Second, overcoming the gauge
differences among the various networks. However, Pépy said he was confident the SNCF will find
wagons of which gauges are adaptable to every rail tracks. SNCF is already operating outside France
and obtained in last years authorisation of running trains in Italy, Belgium and Luxembourg.
Moreover, the buy-over of Import Transport Logistik early 2008 enables to move trains through
Germany without necessarily having to deal with the DB.<!--more--> Catching up with the DB will at
the very least be a challenging task! In terms of partnerships, the DB is already one step ahead, since
the Russian rail company would soon own about 5% of the DB capital following DB privatisation. But,
on top of that, both experimentations the DB has run over the year are acknowledged to be a big hit.
They have turned out to be so successful that the DB even brought forward the launch of regular
services (starting in 2009). And clients awaiting for it are already numerous ! <h3><span style="color:

The intention of Russian Railways (RZD) to inject capital into Deutsche Bahn (DB) following the
partial DB privatisation is everything but secret. Vladimir Iakounine showed his interest as soon as the
privatisation was announced. In an interview to Herald Tribune, he stated that RZD would like to own
about 5% of the DB's capital. From his viewpoint, this venture is a way to reinforce partnerships
between both companies which already collaborate on several projects. More specifically, the DB and
RZD work together to move freight trains from China to Hamburg. Also, the DB had shown interests
when the Moscow-Saint Petersburg line construction started and Siemens had even provided RZD with
some high-speed trains. Both rail companies have also worked in collaboration on various cross-border
schemes. On DB's hand, partnering with RZD offers good development perspectives, since the
Russian tracks network is going to be substantially developed. The overall investment program
allocates indeed €400 billion until 2030 for rail infrastructure development. In this way, the DB
expects to capture some of the freight traffic from Asia which keeps growing considerably.<!--more-->
<h3><span style="color: #800000;">Financial crisis: a good time for a stock market
introduction?</span></h3> Introduction of the DB on the stock market is planned for October
27, 2008. On that day, 24.9% of the DB capital will be proposed on the German stock market to
private and public investors. Outside Germany (except in the USA where no stocks will be proposed at
all), stocks may be available for some institutional organisations. Note that a public offering without
listing is planned in Japan. Unfortunately, the current worldwide financial crisis is may affect the
amount of funds levied with the privatisation. Some financial experts fear that the introduction onto the
stock market would yield no more than €5 billion, which would result in a 10% loss. The German State
and the DB are afraid that a too little amount of stocks would be sold. Both parts agree that the DB
should not be dumped. Therefore, one figure out that if the amount of investments is not deemed
significant enough, the privatisation process would possibly be merely called off; which would be a
shame after the DB already invested between €50 to €60 million in its privatisation promotion. Adding
up banks and consultants services the total amount would reach €100 million. <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">Germany: A (still) growing rail market</span></h3> Yet, German rail freight market
keeps growing. During the first 2008 semester, 189.8 million tons were carried on German railways,
representing a rise by 5.4% compared to the same 2007 period. The total traffic amounted 59.7 billion
ton-kilometre (+3.4%) run on a 315km long average distance (320km in 2007). Container traffics have
experienced a considerable growth by 13.2% (respectively 13.4%), reaching 16.9 billion ton-
kilometres (34.1 million tons) and have roughly represented 18.0% of total rail freight traffic in tons.
Overall, 3.1 million TEU were carried from January to June 2008 (+12.1%) and the average distance
covered only slightly decreased by 1.0% to reach 497km. The growth of the German rail freight is
impressive and encouraging, especially when contrasted to the situation of French freight rail sector.
Many reasons can be outlined: the DB continuous development, the collaboration of ports and rail
operators, a consistent network, the amount of exports, etc. Also, another driver - often forgotten - lies
in the global congestion on German roads which definitely contributes to make of the rail a viable
transport option. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3> <ul> <li>Article:

At the end of August, Le Havre Urban Community (<em>Communauté de l‘Agglomération
Havraise</em>, CODAH) awarded Systra (SNCF engineering subsidiary) to work on the design and
construction of its first light rail line. Systra will lead a consortium composed of INGEROP (consulting
and engineering firm), ATTICA (town and landscape planning), Atelier Jacqueline Osty &amp;
Associés (landscape planning), and Ateliers Lion Architectes Urbanistes (arcitecture and land
planning). This first Y-shaped, 13-kilometer long light rail line will link Le Havre city center, Mont-
Gaillard, and Caucriauville. The construction includes a 700-meter long tunnel and operation is
scheduled to begin during the second semester 2012. More details about the project are available (in
English) on CODAH's website (see References below). <h3><span style="color:

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">SNCF, the good partner for NTV</span></h3> According to
latest updates, Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori (NTV), first Italian private company in high speed rail
passenger transport, has chosen SNCF as a reference industrial partner. SNCF will invest as much as
20% capital into NTV's. Through this partnership, NTV expects in the short-term to benefit from the
SNCF expertise in high-speed rail and more specifically on marketing aspects (Luca di Montezemolo,
head of NTV). In the longer term, NTV even considers that this partnership is a scope for a strong
development of its network outside Italy; with the liberalisation of the rail passenger market in 2010
January, 1. On SNCF's side, G. Pépy also said that such a partnership must be seen as very innovative
at the dawn of the 2010 market opening. By 2015, NTV aims at ensuring 54 trains per day (being 13.5
million kilometers per annum) with 16 trains per day transiting both in Rome and Naples. By that time,
NTV intends to reach a 20% market share with attracting 10 million passengers per year (roughly
30,000 passenger per day). In total, NTV workforce will be 2,000 with half of it outsourced. The total
amount of investments generated by NTV should reach €900 million. <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">NTV, on track in 2011</span></h3> First NTV trains will be launched in 2011. These high
speed trains will link major Italian cities: Turin-Milan-Rome-Naples, Rome-Naples-Bari and Rome-
Bologne-Venise. In order to challenge Trenitalia, NTV mostly targets the market segment of middle-
aged working people. NTV will operate a fleet of 25 AGV train sets from the French constructor,
Alstom. Each of them will be composed by 11 wagons which eventually represent 460 seats. The
contract with Alstom comes to €650 millions.<!--more--> Via this partnership NTV may take
advantage of the SNCF know-how in terms of trip quality standard and customer satisfaction . As a
reminder, since the first TGV was launched in 1981, more than 1.5 billion passengers have used
SNCF high speed trains, with a more than 75% load factor. Also, SNCF recent surveys display high
degree of satisfaction. Moreover, in addition to prospects of a development of a pan-european high
speed rail network, this partnership would potentially lead to further collaborations in ticketing,
booking and price management. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">German railways Deutsche Bahn
is interested in the Italian market</span></h3> The Deutsche Bahn which seems to be very interested
in the Italian market has initially said in September they would be keen to put into NTV's capital,
which appeared as the forthcoming private challenger of the Ferrovie dello Stato company. After
having recently moved on the rail freight sector, the DB is presumably after establishing more
European synergies on the rail passenger sector. In September 2008, , the DB had just bought over
49% of Nordcargo, a company owned by Ferrovie Nord Milan, with investing €3 million (this share
would be likely to rise up to 60% in 2 to 3 years of time). Nordcargo (€34 million turnover and 182
employees in 2007) operates freight trains in the North-West of Italy and North-South cross-border
traffics (Germany-Switzerland-Italy). It is to note that, as soon as 2004, the DB had bought over 95%
of Strade Ferrate del Mediterraneao, which became in 2005 Railion Italia S.r.I. When SNCF will put
capital into NTV's, shareholder's equity of NTV – €263.6 million in total – will be structured as
follows (Sources: SNCF): <table class="aligncenter" border="1" cellpadding="5" width="400">

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">A taskforce to promote a short-sea shipping link between France
and Portugal</span></h3> Earlier this year, on April 14, 2008, Dominique Bussereau (French
Transportation Secretary) and his Portuguese counterpart Ana Paula Vitorino decided to create a
taskforce to promote the development of a sea-highway between both their countries. <h3><span
style="color: #800000;">Two initiatives launched on October 2, 2008</span></h3> As of October 2,
2008, two programmes are launched in France to develop such projects both on the Atlantic and
Mediterranean sides. Deadline for both proposals is set on December 1, 2008: <ul> <li>a call for
proposition to identify the most advanced projects that could be proposed to the European Commission
by the French and Portuguese Governments, in order to obtain a European financing (Trans-European
Transportation Networks);</li> <li>a request of interest to identify the key players and their needs if
such services between France and Portugal would be operated.<!--more--></li> </ul> These initiatives
show that France and Portugal have a real will to develop not only sea-highways, but also non-road
freight transport. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3> <ul> <li>Press

Eurotunnel, the company operating the Channel tunnel, also known as "Chunnel", awarded a
consortium composed of Freyssinet, Eurovia, and Vinci to repair the damages occured during a fire on
Sep. 11, 2008. The construction work are estimated at less than €60 million and could be finished by
mid-February 2009. In this renovation project, Freyssinet will be in charge of construction, Eurovia,
through its subsidiary ETF (Eurovia Travaux Ferroviaires, Eurovia Rail Works) will replace the
catenaries systems, and Vinci through Vinci Energies subsidiary will be working on all other phases of
the project. The consortium contracted with Eurotunnel based on a four-month planning, thus leading
to restart full operation early 2009. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3> <ul>

Today, French high-speed trains ride at a maximum speed of 320 kph... roughly 200 mph. Thinking it
could be improved, SNCF, the French national railway company, is now testing its trainsets at speed
up to 360 kph! By 2015, SNCF expects that several parts of the French network could have TGV trains
running at 360 kph in commercial operation. The main goal is to reduce considerably transit time on
future routes, such as Paris to Toulouse, in order to gain market shares against the plane. On this route
Paris to Toulouse through Bordeaux, SNCF only has a 25% marketshare, compared to 75% for the
airlines, road being excluded). The reason is because the high-speed rail network stops in Tour, and
then TGV trains are riding at a more lower speed (regional train speed, around 200 kph). With a full
high-speed rail line on the whole itinerary, transit time could be reduced to 2h55 from 5h00 today at
best. This way, SNCF could reverse the market share, reaching 65% to 70%, lowering the airlines'
market share to 30-35%. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Bordeaux-Toulouse at 360kph in
2016</span></h3> Since the Bordeaux-Toulouse high speed rail track is supposed to enter operation in
2016, it will be built to support either TGV or AGV (the new Alstom very high-speed trainsets) at
speeds up to 360 kph. As of today, these high-speeds are still in experimental phase, the actual network
being not able to support trainsets running (and especially crossing each others) at such high-speed.
Thus, SNCF is working on a test phase with a TGV Duplex trainset to evaluate and calculate the
rolling stock's behaviour. <!--more--> However, Bordeaux-Toulouse will not be the only link that
could welcome 360 kph-high speed trains. A project that might be developped from Paris to Clermont-
Ferrand, center of France, might be perfect for such commercial speeds. Until then, passenger trains
will continue to ride at 300 or 320 kph because the cost (energy) of increasing speed is still too
important compared to the transit time gained. Still... This is not too bad! <h3><span style="color:

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">Swiss K+N to buy French Alloin Group</span></h3> Swiss
logistics group Kuehne + Nagel signed a contract agreement to take over the French distributor Alloin
Group (mail, bulking). Kuehne + Nagel thus reaches one of its strategic goal by extending its ground
distribution network in France and Belgium. The company is specialized in domestic mails deliveries
and bulking/groupage, and international bulking/groupage. However, Alloin Group has also been a
player in air and sea transport (Alloin International subsidiary) since 2002, and in high-added-value
logistics since 2005. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Who's Alloin Group?</span></h3> Alloin
Group headquarters are located in the Greater Lyon area, in the city of Villefranche-sur-Saône. The
Alloin Group is ranked among the leading groupage providers in France and Belgium (since 2000
after the acquisition of Widem based in Nivelles), with its 3,000 employees, an annual turnover of
around €300 million. The company has a network of 53 cross-docking centers, and handles 20,000
packages a day. <!--more--> <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Kuehne + Nagel to develop in
France and southern Europe</span></h3> Kuehne + Nagel has been willing to develop its ground
transport offer since a couple year, and took over part of IDS franchises in Germany. Kuehne + Nagel
target was to extend its services in France, and also in southern Europe. It appears Kuehne + Nagel
might have been negociating with Mory Group and Sernam (French SNCF). <h3><span style="color:

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">Loi Grenelle I (Grenelle I law) adopted, measures
follow...</span></h3> Following up with the Environment Roundtable (<em>Grenelle de
l'Environnement</em>), the French Parliament approved on Oct. 16, 2008, the eco-tax law for trucks.
The tax will be applied to all trucks over 3.5 tons on French roads, starting at best in 2011. The tax will
embraces all national State roads, departmental (regional), and local networks (existing toll roads
excluded) and the financial benefits will be gathered into a State fund for infrastructures, managed by
the Transport Infrastructure Financing Agency (Agence de financement des infrastructures de
transport, AFITF). The first step will be the test phase in the Alsace region (German border) in 2011,
and the system will be extended to the whole country in 2012. <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">Carriers will pay more... Customers will thus pay the bill</span></h3> Transportation
Secretary Dominique Busserau estimated the "eco-tax" will gather between 800 million and 1.2 billion
euros per year, that could be allocated to the Transport Infrastructures fund. It however will not be
enough - apparently - to fill the gap which the AFITF is falling in. It seems France's Highway Trust
Fund like fund also encounters financial difficulties... Even if it will not be enough to fund our
infrastructure, it will still be State public money to be invested in our nation's transport systems... The
question is: who will pay? At first, all trucking industry complains but the Transportation Secretary
guaranteed the tax will be reported at the bottom of each transport bills... meaning the clients will pay
for it. Transportation professionnals still become alarmed of the consequences: trucking associations
estimated the cost of this new tax at around 1.5 billion euros. Another question to rise: where those
300-700 million euros differences come from/go to? No one apparently knows or would be disposed to
explain. <!--more--> <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Trucking industry protests...</span></h3>
In a period of financial crisis, where companies failures occur more than ever (+82% compared to a
year before), trucking industry associations and professionals are complaining about this new way to
tax trucks... In a recent article in Ouest-France (regional newspaper from western France), French
National Trucking Association (<em>Fédération Nationale des Transports Routiers</em>, FNTR)
President, Mr. Patrick Vermot-Desroches, totally disagreed with this regulation, that is, according to
him, not at all an environmental oriented measure but simply a new tax to refund a diminishing State
budget! <h3 style="padding-left: 30px;">A Nantes, le président de la FNTR s'insurge contre l'éco-taxe
des camions</h3> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>Présent à Nantes pour le salon Technotrans, le
président de la fédération nationale des transports routiers (FNTR), Patrick Vermot-Desroches, s'est
insurgé contre l'éco-redevance adoptée par les parlementaires. « Ce n‘est pas une éco-taxe. C‘est une
taxe poids-lourd qui n‘a aucun lien avec des préoccupations environnementales. C‘est une redevance
destinée à combler les caisses de l‘Etat. »</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align:
right;">Source: Ouest-France, Oct. 16, 2008 (see References below)</p> The French Government
however guaranteed it will analyse the impact of the "eco-tax" law implementation on the private
businesses health. The Government also plans to adapt the tax upon the situation of each region (with
or without other transport alternatives, geographical impact, etc.). Despite these good will, the French
State did not however explain how the tax will be transferred from carriers to their clients... <h3><span

Financial crisis does not only affect the banking industry. In France, is seems it now reaches the "real"
economy. A few days ago, French bank Groupe Caisses d‘Epargne announced some €600 million
losses, and this might eventually affect... the Argentinian high-speed rail project! Quick explanation:
Alstom, part of a consortium, won the call for tender for the $1.5 billion high-speed rail project (700
kilometers line between Buenos Aires and Cordoba). However, the consortium awarded French bank
Natixis to finance this project... Poor choice since Natixis is the investment bank born from a joint-
venture between Groupe Caisses d‘Epargne and Banques populaires, and is the one that has been the
most affected by the subprime crisis... Natixis was supposed to bring up a $1.3 billion loan over 30-
year to finance the project, and might not be able to close the financing... After Société Générale that
was supposed to finance up to 70% of the project, Natixis might be the second one to abandon. What's
next? In a period when banks can not even manage to finance infrastructure, will States be able to

The DHL-boat sails through Amsterdam's canals. It is the base centre for bicycle courriers thus leading
to less vans, small or bigger trucks for final deliveries. The distribution centre employs 4 people on the
boat, and serves 20 bicycle couriers. It helps minimizing traffic congestion and pollution in city
centre. At the beginning, the project was started by a testing period of 18 months and Amsterdam
authorities expected to attract more companies to operate such services. <p style="padding-left:
30px;"><em>―DHL converted a tourist boat to a Floating Distribution Centre that is linked on-line
with bicycle couriers. The boat sails through the canals of Amsterdam and serves 20 bicycle couriers,
which are equipped with telecommunication devices that are online with computers on board replacing
the existing DHL's delivery vans that were driving through the centre of Amsterdam‖</em></p> <p

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">What are the benefits?</span></h3> Early figures said that the
boat removes 10 cars a day or 150,000 vehicle-kilometres and 12,000 litres of diesel per year. It
reduces traffic jams in the city centre (no vehicle stopped in narrow streets during deliveries). From
DHL's point of view, the boat+bike service has a high flexibility of supply, a positive image, etc. This
project seems to be very successful, since it is still in operation more than 10 years after the experiment
started. <table style="text-align: center;" border="0" cellspacing="3" cellpadding="2" width="100%">

Dublin, (Ireland), since 1995, a DHL-bus drives walking couriers for deliveries;</li> <li>in Venice, a

Mr. C. Kenneth Orski sent Transport Expertise some more details about the Marine Highways
Program, that we mentionned in our French article "<em><a title="Des autoroutes maritimes pour

identify promising marine highway corridors. The program was authorized in the Energy
Independence and Security Act of 2007. The routes will be eligible for up to $25 million in capital
grants. The James River from Norfolk to Richmond has been designated as the first such marine
highway corridor. It is expected to shift some 4,000 trucks-worth of cargo off the I-64 onto the
waterway. However, some economists contend that the economics of this logistical alternative remains
to be demonstrated."</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: right;">Source: Vol. 19, No.

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">Deutsche Bahn privatisation delayed to February
2009</span></h3> On October 9, due to the worldwide financial crisis, the German Government
postponed the on-going Deutsche Bahn privatisation process. Another attempt (still with the
unchanged amount of 24.9% of the DB capital to be privatised) will be held starting in February 2009.
This announcement was made by the Initial Public Offer commission which gathers members of
banks, the DB and the German Government. Some might say that given the late estimations of
amounts that the privatisation would generate, this decision was the only sensible one. As a reminder,
the DB part-privatisation was initially expected to yield between €4 and €5 billions, which would
probably not have been possible at this time. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Privatising less to
start the process?</span></h3> Nonetheless, another option does exist and would consist in decreasing
amount of the DB capital to be privatised in order not to delay a long way off. This would presumably
increase the amount of the subscription.<!--more--> Despite this announcement, Hartmut Mehdorn,
Deutsche Bahn Chief Executive, and his Chief Financial Officer have kept prospecting, and thus
recently met in London and Moscow potential investors that they said were not directly impacted by
the current crisis. Moreover, Mr. Mehdorn would be thinking of selling over shares in lots. This option
would be specifically considered for key investors such as the Russian rail company, Middle East
investors and Asian State funds. The Minister of Finance, Peer Steinbrück, already showed his
scepticism regarding this solution, since incomes generated could possibly be too low. However this
will be examined all the same, as both the Government and the DB are keen to sort this privatisation
issue out as soon as possible. Besides, the Government would like to avoid having a DB privatisation
being held during Summer 2009, only few months before the elections in the Bundestag. Technically
speaking, if the privatisation occurs mid-February 2009, then the current facts and figures could be still
legally used. However, if not, the privatisation would have to back up on facts and figures of the year
2008, which will only be available from late March 2009. As a result, the privatisation would not
approximately be possible before mid-April. <h3><span style="color:

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) published on October 28,
2008 a document entitled "<strong>ITF Round Tables - No. 141 : Privatisation and Regulation of
Urban Transit Systems</strong>." I thought it might be of interest to those who are interested in
"privatizing" their public transportation network. Also, Transport Expertise team would be glad to
receive any request and questions about the French "<em>Délégation de Service Public</em>" model
(public service delegation, used by transit authorities who are contracting with a private company to
operate - and more, their transit systems). We also ceise this opportunity to remind you that Transport
Expertise recently published a report about innovative financing in the transit sector:
<em><strong>"FIRST FRENCH-AMERICAN WORKSHOP ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
&amp; INNOVATIVE FINANCING‖</strong></em>, September 5, 2008 download the Executive
Summary <a title="&quot;FIRST FRENCH-AMERICAN WORKSHOP ON PUBLIC
TRANSPORTATION &amp; INNOVATIVE FINANCING&quot;, Executive Summary"

class="HeaderText"><span style="color: #800000;">No. 141 : Privatisation and Regulation of Urban
Transit Systems</span></span></h3> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Urban public transport services
generally run at a large deficit. This has led public authorities to seek efficiencies, notably through
private sector involvement. Private entry is complicated by the essential network characteristics of
public transport, with parts of the network potentially profitable and others perennially unprofitable.<!-
-more--></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Support for the sector traditionally seeks to provide
basic mobility services to all segments of society, including low-income users. Intervention is also
required to manage the natural tendency towards concentration and market power in the provision of
these transport services. Policy towards urban public transport is increasingly aimed at managing
congestion on the roads and mitigating CO2 emissions by substituting for travel by car. The sprawl of
cities complicates the regulatory environment as responsibilities tend to be split among different
institutional levels. (<a title="No. 141 : Privatisation and Regulation of Urban Transit Systems "

Transport Expertise hereby starts a series of specialists interviews with <strong>Mr. Ignacio Barron de
Angoiti, High Speed Director, International Union of Railways</strong> (UIC) discussing the issue of
"<strong>HSR in Northern America… where and when?</strong>" <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">Q1: Transport-Expertise.org</span></h3> Rail in Northern America (United States and
Canada) is still far from high-speed… Could we expect to see a high-speed rail infrastructure in the
next couple years (either progressive implementation, or directly 200+ mph)? If yes, according to you,
where would be the most probable place(s)? When could we expect to see it? <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">A1: Ignacio Barron de Angoiti</span></h3> <strong>In my opinion, the first high-speed
project in any country or region must start by an ―easy‖ project.</strong> <strong>Ideal conditions for
high-speed are two important population areas separated by 300 miles (+/-) in a flat land and without
population in between.</strong> <strong>So the first of this kind of projects in the United States of
America should be chosen within the most similar conditions to these, especially because Society must
know in deep what really high-speed is.</strong><!--more--> <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">Q2:Transport-Expertise.org</span></h3> Amtrak Northeast corridor, with its Acela
operation, is the only part of the U.S. passenger rail network that has been shown financially profitable.
According to American transport officials, the area is almost totally urbanized from Washington to
Boston and there is ―almost no right of way available to build a high-speed rail line‖ along the existing
rail tracks. We think there still is a way to plan the construction of either a new or a renewed
infrastructure. From your point of view, what do you think would be technically possible to do to
build a high-speed rail line between these East Coast metropolitan areas? <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">A2:Ignacio Barron de Angoiti</span></h3> <strong>Yes, everything is possible. The
question is to know at what cost.</strong> <strong>The conception of a new high-speed line in the
Northeast corridor (or in any other corridor) must be adapted to American way of life, and
consequently, not necessarily with the same criteria and parameters as European lines.</strong>
<strong>Anyway the cost will be elevated but it is necessary to balance with the benefits for
Society.</strong> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #800000;">Download the

Transport Expertise hereby starts a series of specialists interviews with <strong>Mr. Ignacio Barron de
Angoiti, High Speed Director, International Union of Railways</strong> (UIC) discussing the issue of
"<strong>HSR in Northern America… where and when?</strong>" <h3><span style="color:
#800000;"><span style="color: #800000;">Q3: Transport-Expertise.org</span></span></h3> We
presently living in a period of world financial crisis, and California State has a very high debt level.
However, voters will decide fate of high-speed rail project in California on the November 4, 2008
ballot… What would you think the conditions of success be for this mega-project? <h3><span
style="color: #800000;">A3: Ignacio Barron de Angoiti</span></h3> <strong>The first one, to
conceive and present a good project (I suppose this point is already ok).</strong> <strong>Second, to
convince all public authorities that they must be involved in the project. Not necessarily from the
financial point of view, but at least by giving a strong support, and maybe by establishing some
concessions or benefits to promoters.</strong> <strong>And third, with a very important
communication campaign. This is essential for any high-speed project, in order to be understood by
Society.</strong> <h3><span style="color: #800000;"><span style="color: #800000;">Q4: Transport-
Expertise.org</span></span></h3> Regulation in Europe will open national markets to competition in
2010, for international routes at first and domestic ones afterwards in 2016. From the UIC point of
view, what could European operators be bringing in the high-speed rail projects development in the
United States or Canada (operational and technical experience, best practices, financing, etc.)?<!--
more--> <h3><span style="color: #800000;">A4: Ignacio Barron de Angoiti</span></h3> <strong>Of
course and not only due to European liberalization process. </strong> <strong>The United States of
America can (and will) benefit from their large experience in high-speed operation.</strong>
<h3><span style="color: #800000;"><span style="color: #800000;">Q5: Transport-
Expertise.org</span></span></h3> If you had one advice for transport officials to develop their high-
speed rail projects, what would you say? <h3><span style="color: #800000;">A5: Ignacio Barron de
Angoiti</span></h3> <strong>I should repeat once again the High Speed principles:</strong>
<strong>1. High speed is a system and consequently it must be considered all the elements
(infrastructure, track, rolling stock, maintenance policy, station, marketing, etc.)</strong> <strong>2.
High speed is totally similar but totally different in all around the world. Consequently it must be
adapted to real necessities and preferences of each region or country.</strong> <strong>As a
conclusion of conclusions, first of all we have to imagine the system already in operation, and then to
start the development of, one by one, all the elements.</strong> <strong>Good luck!</strong> <h3

Greater Bordeaux (Communauté Urbaine de Bordeaux, CUB) in southwest France will change its
public transport operator. Present operator Veolia Transport will be replaced, following a decision of
the CUB's council, by its main opponent in France Keolis. Final decision should be taken on
November 28, 2008 for a contract worth €750 million, the largest public service delegation of Vincent
Feltesse mandate (CUB President). Both candidates companies Veolia and Keolis fought against each
other during the last couple months, improving each time their transit offer, and diminishing the CUB's
financial participation. In the end, Keolis is committed to increase transport system ridership from 90
million to 147 million trips per annum, up 50% from now on (representing 32 million kilometers). To
achieve this goal, Keolis expects to remake the bus routing, review scheduling, and add light-rail
trainsets. If the ridership targeted is reached, it will almost double revenues (from €36 million in 2007),
and minimize the CUB's participation. Also, CUB's President wanted to include free access bikes on
Bordeaux, that would be in operation by summer 2009. Keolis target is also to reduce the CUB's
financial contribution to €83 million by 2013 against €100 million today, all this without a fare
increase (inflation excepted). This will thus allow Bordeaux urban community to finance light-rail
extensions, helped by €50 million of State subsidies provided by the "Environment Roundtable" law
(Loi Grenelle). According to Mr. Feltesse, transit offer under the new contract will be improved by
18% for a cost down 17%, and a risk shared more by the operator. <h3><span style="color:

Low activity on Transport Expertise

I would like to publish a short note to let every reader know about the reasons of such a low activity on
Transport Expertise in the last 4 weeks. First of all, the newsletter could not be sent because of
technical reasons that affect both the WordPress system used to run the website and Yahoo! servers
that host it. I am in the process to get it fixed and I really hope publication can resume soon. This does
not however justify why there have not been any articles published in these last weeks... So here is the
truth: Transport Expertise is becoming a Non-Profit Organization (called "Association" under the
French regulation: Loi 1901). The main goal of this newly formed Association will be to promote
North American and French/European best practices in the transportation/infrastructures sectors. We
definitely look forward to your participation to help developing our activities. We have been preparing
this in the last couple weeks, and it takes (a lot of) time to deal with all administrative procedures and
paperworks. We expect the Association to be created by the end of December, and resume full activity
by January 2009. We will then send further information about who are the people part of the board of
directors, and how to subscribe and participate to the Association's activities. I would like to
personnally thank all Transport Expertise website's visitors for their continued interest and hope to be
able to meet some of you to discuss the project in the future months. Please note that I will be
attending the 89th Annual Transport Research Board Meeting held January 11-15, 2009 in
Washington, DC. Do not hesitate to contact me to schedule a meeting if you would be interested in
discussing these issues. <p style="text-align: right;"><span style="color:

    Hello Matthieu, GAO has a "prospects for high-speed rail in the US" paper in the works due to
    come out in February. They asked us for information on the California project, but no word yet on
    drafts.... Auguri for the Association! Nick

    Hello Nick, Thank you for the information. It is good to know that GAO is looking for data about
    HSR. Also, we see more and more articles in the US press about this issue, I guess the fast train is
    coming! I hope the Association will work well once launched; it will officialize our activities and
    hopefully help us to increase visits.

Madam, Sir, Dear Visitors, On behalf of all Transport Expertise Board members, I am pleased to
announce that we created <strong>Transport Expertise Association</strong> (Non-Profit Organization
under French regulation). As defined in the articles of association adopted during the General
Assembly on Dec. 19, 2008, the Association will<strong> study and promote at the international level,
best transportation &amp; infrastructures practices from North America and Europe. </strong> All
official documents can be found on "<a title="A propos de l‘Association" href="http://fr.transport-
expertise.org/index.php/organisation/a-propos/">A propos de l‘Association</a>" et "<a title="About
the Association" href="../index.php/company/about/">About the Association</a>" pages (articles of
association, rules of procedures, organizational chart, etc.) Activity will thus resume progressively on
our website. Several specialists from the transport sphere will now work on the transportation and
infrastructure topics that we wil publish. We will keep you posted during the next few weeks of the
projects we plan to accomplish during our first "official year." Even though our program is "still to be
defined" (at least "precisely" define), you should know that our main targets are the followings: <ul>
<li>increasing drastically website's traffic;</li> <li>increasing the number of articles publish to reach,
at least one article per day per section (English &amp; French);</li> <li>publishing at least 12
specialists interviews, as we did with Mr. Barron de Angoiti;</li> <li>publishing synthesis about both
transportation operation and infrastructure financing for each mode (10 papers for France and 10
papers for the United States, at first);</li> <li>writing one or two annual studies, by each project
group (rail, air, roads &amp; logistics, maritime &amp; waterways, urbain mobility).</li> </ul> We
remain available for any question or remark. We are looking for your visit on our page and would be
glad to meet with you if you might be interested in our activities. Until then, all Transport Expertise
Board members wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2009. <p style="text-align:

<p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">In 2007, the French
government organized a big event related to sustainable development issues, called
<strong><em>Grenelle de l'environnement</em></strong>. All the working sessions were held as
think-tanks. In this regard, companies, environmental associations, professional federations and
various ministry departments participated to the distinct sessions. The aim consisted in defining
objectives for the whole range of the sustainable development related issues and to discuss the possible
ways to reach these objectives. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span
lang="EN-GB">In France (in comparison with other countries where electricity production does not
entirely depend on nuclear sector), <strong>the transport sector is the most important
CO<sub>2</sub> producer in France with 34% of total emissions.</strong> Therefore, the Grenelle de
l'environnement concerns mostly focused on addressing transport sector CO<sub>2</sub> emissions
issues. </span></p> <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Objectives for the freight transportation
sector...</span></h3> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">In
particular, the freight transportation represents the third of total transport emissions with 35.4 millions
of CO<sub>2 </sub>tons in 2006; road transport being responsible for 34.6 millions of
CO<sub>2</sub> tons. Conclusions of the workshop in charge of freight issues therefore concentrated
on how transferring goods from road to other modes. In the end, very ambitious objectives were
defined:</span></p> <ul> <li><span lang="EN-GB"> modal share of non-road transport : <strong>a
25% growth</strong>; </span></li> <li><span lang="EN-GB"><strong>a 25% growth of the rail
market share</strong>;</span></li> <li><span lang="EN-GB">improve environmental performances
on the road transport</span></li> <li><span lang="EN-GB">prepare the future by developing
R&amp;D</span></li> </ul> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-
GB"><!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:

2012 as you will find in the following table:</span></p> <h5 style="text-align: center;"><span

class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">More recently, another
workshop was held in 2008 to identify the solutions that would enable France to reach these objectives.
Different options were considered. The following points are only the main ones.<!--more--
></span></p> <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Combined transportation...</span></h3> <p
class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">First, it might relevant to
reinforce the structure of financial supports for combined transport, specifically for rail transport.
Basically, the current support forr operations (€12 for the handling) will be maintained and additional
aids will be provided for new services. On the whole, this measure will require 200 M€ between 2008
and 2012, which is an about twice higher amount than the one over the 2003-2007 period (€103
millions). </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB"><!--
[if !supportEmptyParas]--> </span></p> <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Rolling
highways...</span></h3> <span lang="EN-GB">Also, the workshop insisted on the need to develop
the rolling highway concept for corridors where there is a lot of road traffic and for crossing of
mountains bed. Technically speaking, it led to:</span> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span
lang="EN-GB">- prepare the request for proposal of the definitive service for the Autoroute
Ferroviaire Alpine (rolling highway between Aiton (France) and Orbassano (Italy) across the Alps /
more information <a
href="http://www.transports.equipement.gouv.fr/article.php3?id_article=7500">here</a>). The service
should start in few years near Lyon in the Rhône-Alpes region.</span></p> <p style="padding-left:
30px;"><span lang="EN-GB">- clarify trucks sizes and dimensions: the service between Perpignan
(South of France) and Bettembourg (Luxembourg) suffer since the beginning in march 2007 from a
size problem. It seems that some trailers are not compatible with the GB1 gauge, which deprives the
service of a whole range of market segments. The workshop strongly recommended to remove this
technical barrier as soon as possible.</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span lang="EN-
GB">- start off a new service: the Atlantic axe, which should link southwest of France to Paris and in
the future to North of France.</span></p> <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Rail
effectiveness...</span></h3> <span lang="EN-GB">Some general measures were proposed to improve
the rail effectiveness:</span> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-
GB"><!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> </span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span lang="EN-
GB">- to extend the train length from 750m to 1000m in a first step and to 1500m in a second
one.</span><span lang="EN-GB">to accompany the implementation of proximity rail operators,
which would be in charge of putting together breakbulk wagons from different shippers on a same
geographical area</span><span lang="EN-GB">.</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span
lang="EN-GB"> </span><span lang="EN-GB">- to support the development of express rail freight
between the main European town, like the Carex project (more info <a
href="http://www.eurocarex.eu/">here</a>) or the Fret GV (postal freight).</span></p> <p
style="padding-left: 30px;"><span lang="EN-GB"> </span><span lang="EN-GB">- to create a
regulation authority for the rail sector in order to make sure that the market is
competitive.</span><span lang="EN-GB">…</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:
justify;"><span lang="EN-GB"><!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> </span></p> <h3><span
style="color: #800000;">Inland waterways and short see shipping... </span></h3> <p
class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">For inland waterways, it was
decided to:</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span lang="EN-GB">- realise the Seine-
Nord canal (more info <a href="http://www.seine-nord-europe.com/">here</a> )</span></p> <p
style="padding-left: 30px;"><span lang="EN-GB">- authorise the use of 44 tons trucks for transport to
and from waterways ports. </span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span lang="EN-GB">-
improve the interaction between maritime and waterways transport: e.g. by constructing the waterways
lock in the Le Havre Port. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span
lang="EN-GB"><!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-
align: justify;"></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">On
the short sea shipping, the workshop announced its support for the different schemes in favour of short
sea shipping on the Atlantic coast and in the Mediterranean. A €80 millions plan is expected to finance
the range of projects. </span> <h3><span style="color: #800000;"><span lang="EN-GB">Transport
expertise analysis </span></span></h3> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span
lang="EN-GB">If only looking at the potential of the additional capacity by the transport
infrastructures to be created, a 25% rise of the modal share for non road transport is possible. However,
the shippers willingness to transfer goods from road to train will be a key factor in making successes of
the various projects. If these latter are quite reluctant, in the end of the day, French Government will
only have fincanced the creation of brand new infrastructures which will not be used. </span></p> <p
class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB"><!--[if !supportEmptyParas]-->
</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">Even though
the Grenelle de l'Environnement has enabled to make aware (through the media covering) the
population and the companies of sustainable development situation, 2012 seems to be a too close
deadline to reache the objectives initially set. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:
justify;"><span lang="EN-GB"><!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--><!--[endif]--></span></p> <p
class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">The new tax on trucks (<a
href="http://en.transport-expertise.org/index.php/2008/10/21/french-parliament-adopted-the-eco-tax-
law/">TE article on the subject</a>) might influence shippers comportments, nonetheless, the
incertitude on petrol prices (it could stay at low level as it could fall down to $40 per barrel) and the
low liability of rail traffics could lead them to go rather for not transferring goods from road to rail for
economic purposes. For instance, since January 2008, freight SNCF has known a fall of its traffics
which led some journalists to estimate a €350 millions loss in 2008. Moreover, whereas of big haulier
groups (even among ones with a strong historical culture for road) had projects on the way to include
combined transport within their transport plan, the financial crisis caused most of them to step back
and postpone (at the best) or call off the schemes they were working on. In such a context, how could
France reach its objectives, then? </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:
justify;"><span lang="EN-GB"><!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"
style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-GB">In conclusion, <strong>2012 appears as a little bit
too ambitious</strong>. However these objectives can definitely be reached and we really think this is
an opportunity for French freight sector to show that it can have stop the non-road traffic decrease by
creating a proper alternative to road, the one the European commission is hoping since 2001 and its
white book.</span></p> <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3> <ul>

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">More and more frequent flyer miles for airlines users…with a
shorter lifespan</span></h3> The more a Frequent Flyer Program (FFP) offers partnerships, the more
it is supposed to be attractive, even though some partnerships might be considered as "Brand exposure"
only (e.g. earning 100 miles per car rental). It is commonly admitted that air travel accrual accounts
for almost 80% of mileage accrual. Among the remaining 20%, financial partners account for 80%!
For some programs, figures for financial partnerships (mainly affinity/co-brand cards) are even higher.
For a long time, airline industry Controllers have been suspicious about these billions of miles
accounting as thousands of potential free fare tickets. They had nightmares of airlines like PanAm
flying only FFP award tickets owners in their last living days. Very soon, it was commonly admitted
that these miles should be accounted as a debt provision named ―FFP Liability‖.<!--more--> In June
2007, IASB (International Accounting Standard Board) issued an accounting directive dubbed as
―IFRIC 13‖ about Loyalty Programs (on a general basis, including hotels, retailers, etc...). FFP
Liability had to be evaluated according to new criteria, including full costs. According to the new
calculations, FFP Liability was doubled/tripled for most airlines. FFP owners had no choice, but
dramatically decrease the number of ―sleeping miles‖. Main actions taken are listed below (sometimes
a mix of them): <ul> <li>terminate lifetime validity without constraints;</li> <li>decrease miles
validity (commonly between 12 and 24 months);</li> <li>limit the number of activities extending
validity (usually alliance partners and parent airlines); and</li> <li>instore fixed validity of 1, 2 or 3
years without any extension possibility.</li> </ul> Needless to say, communication to FFP members
about the above rules is very sensitive. Hopefully, at the same time, the current economical situation
will help in providing more award seats, although at an increasing mile rate.

Deutsche Bahn, the German National Railway, continues to extend its rail network through the
acquisition of PCC Logistics, Poland's biggest railway carrier. According to PCC Logistics
communication department, Deutsche Bahn President, Hartmut Mehdorn and PCC board member
Norbert Bensel and Waldemar Preussner signed the agreement in Warsaw on January 30, 2009. This
acquisition will allow Deutsche Bahn to extend its network toward Eastern Europe, and also be able to
compete with Poland's National Railway PKP Cargo. PCC Logistics employs some 5,800 people and
is the biggest private rail company in Poland and has revenues of €350 million (2008). PCC Logistics
has an 8-percent share of the rail freight market in Poland thus being the major private carrier in the
country. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3> <ul> <li>Article: <em>La

In the early days of Frequent Flyer Programs, the trend for airlines was to have a subsidiary in charge
of the FFP. This was a cautious appoach due to a lack of experience in this new Business. When more
experience was gained, it was assumed that this Business could bring more revenue, even when taking
into account Liability provisions. Hence, the FFP were reintegrated in the airlines‘ core Business.
Recently, some airlines have built a new Business model for Loyalty. Thay decided to outsource the
FFP Business as a specific entity, bringing in outside investors. The first example is ―Groupe
Aeroplan‖, a public company listed at the Toronto Stock Exchange, owing Aeroplan (the FFP of Air
Canada), Nectar (a leading Frequent Buyer Program in the UK), having interest in a FBP in the Middle
East and a communication company. No doubt that the future and financial results of Groupe Aeroplan
will be closely monitored by the Airline industry. Other similar initiatives seem to be on tracks (there
were rumours about a similar project by Qantas), but might be slowed down by the worldwide
financial turndown.

RATP Développement, a subsidiary of Paris transit network operator RATP and Veolia Transport, a
subsidiary of Veolia Environnement annouced earlier in January that they will create a joint venture
both investing 50% to develop their activities in Asia. Both companies operate and maintain public
transportation networks and the newly formed venture will start to develop in China, South Korea and
India. In a region where transit is developing fastly, both companies estimate their venture to be worth
€500 million by 2013. In this new market, Veolia will take advantage of RATP's technical know-how
and international brand image from Paris Metro operation. However, both companies are already
active in Asia, Veolia operating networks in Seoul, Bombay and Nanjing while RATP has its
engineering subsidiary Systra working in this market. <h3><span style="color:

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">The impact of airlines alliances on Loyalty
Programs</span></h3> It is interesting to note that the very first airline alliance was built around a
FFP. The defunct Swissair owned the ―Qualiflyer‖ FFP and took majority stakes in various airlines
which were linked with Qualiflyer. Swissair collapsed in 2002 with (or partly because of?) Qualiflyer.
Currently, in case of airlines IPO or merger, the first common project is the FFP Merger (Air
France/KLM in 2005, Delta/Northwest Airlines in 2009). FFP is the most visible joint product of the
new company on the customers‘ side. The three existing Global Alliances (Star Alliance, SkyTeam and
One World) aim to provide many benefits to their clients, including reciprocal mileage accrual and
award tickets. Thanks to huge ICT investments, they introduced standard procedures for data
exchange, miles and award settlement, recognition of higher tiers, web booking tools, etc.
Surprisingly, some major airlines are still aside Global Alliances, especially in the Gulf. These airlines
have bilateral FFP agreements with other carriers from different alliances.

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">The Mile, second currency behind US Dollars... Is this
true?</span></h3> If the Mile were a currency, it would be a non-convertible one, as every airline has
its own mile accounting structure. The common feeling which customers may have is that FFP life
trend is like real life inflation ―earn less, spend more‖ (see part 1). It is almost impossible to have a
global view of the worldwide FFP Economy, as some of the key figures are the best kept secrets
among airlines: <ul> <li>number of active members (airline only communicate ―inflated‖ total
numbers);</li> <li>total number of valid miles;</li> <li>redemption/accrual ratio; and</li> <li>FFP
costs &amp; earnings figures.</li> </ul> One very interesting indicator will be the first FY report of
Groupe Aeroplan (see part 2) which, as a public listed company, will have to disclose their financial
results.

Please find below a link to an online survey which results will be use in a research project. Transport
Expertise answered the questionnaire, now, it is your turn to! <h3><span style="color: #800000;">A
message from Dr. Johannes Klühspies</span></h3> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Interdisciplinary
experts are currently discussing which technological and sociological trends - and their underlying
psychological dimensions - are likely to determine the future of mobility for business and leisure
travel. While some developments seem relatively easy to identify today, others remain nothing more
than vague predictions.</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">In view of this, the Lucerne School of
Business, ITW, has launched a research project that includes an international online survey of
professional opinions as one major component. The "Cities for Mobility" network, which is being
coordinated by the city of Stuttgart, Germany, supports this worldwide survey.</p> <p style="padding-
left: 30px;">The Lucerne Univeristy of Applied Scieneces, ITW would be pleased if you would
contribute to the quality of the survey results by sharing your expertise on this topic. We will gladly
send you an overview of the relevant research results as a PDF file, too.</p> <p style="padding-left:
30px;">The following link will take you to the online survey:</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><a

will find additional important details (e.g., on data privacy) on the start page.</p> <p style="padding-

Transport Expertise released today, February 13, 2009, the English version of the study
"<strong>French Offer in the Urban Mobility Sector</strong>" <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">Background</span></h3> French offer in the urban mobility sector is often associated
with the rolling stock offer. It is true that the French technology in this sector, especially in the railway
sector with Alstom products, is seen as the world reference. However, the French offer does not
amount to no more than its rolling stock. French companies take an active part in all the segments of
urban mobility and they can offer a complete quality service in engineering, signaling,
transport operation, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), or urban furnitures. The companies‘ cards
of this document aim to present a synthetic overview of the French offer in the sector. If it is not
exhaustive, it is offering a general idea of the main actors of the sector. <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">Download it, in English... or in French!</span></h3> <ul> <li>You can download a
sample <a rel="attachment wp-att-134" href="http://en.transport-
expertise.org/?attachment_id=134">here</a> or order a free copy <a title="Contact us (EN)"

the same way: download a sample <a href="http://fr.transport-expertise.org/wp-

#800000;">Public Private Partnerships on Transport Expertise</span></h3> Public Private
Partnerships are developing fast in the United States, in every transportation sector: from the
"privatization" of highways (Chicago Skyway, Indiana Toll Road, etc.) to urban transit operation (e.g.
with Veolia Transportation), U.S. DOT and State DOTs have been implementing these financing
schemes since a couple years only. In a period of financial crisis, the Federal Government approving
the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, around $46 billion will be spent on
infrastructure projects in the next two years, allowing private participation in public projects...<!--

Ports that are able to offer scale economies on land by using combined transport gain a competitive
advantage in their port range. The recent rapid expansion of combined waterway-road services at
French ports, Le Havre and Marseille, led us to carry out a theoretical and empirical analysis of the
causes and conditions that underlie this development. In order to more clearly understand the dynamics
of the French situation, attention has been broadened to include other competing European ports,
Antwerp and Rotterdam. The four stage theoretical model highlights the interdependence between the
setting up of combined waterway-road services, the competition between ports and the competition
between shipping lines. <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt;"><span style="font-size:

On March 19 and 20, Matthieu Desiderio will speak at the 10th Annual Golden Spike Seminar held at
the Radisson Hotel in Merrillville, Indiana. He will address two different issues: <ul>
<li><strong>Intermodalism in Passenger Transport</strong>: connections among the different
transportation modes of travel (intercity rail, commuter rail, airports and highways); and</li>
<li><strong>Private Involvement in Public Transportation</strong>: private "ownership" of
transportation systems in France, and how they complement the public transit systems.</li> </ul>

Couple days ago, we made Transport Expertise website more "iPhone Friendly" with the addition of a
personnalized icon to bookmark our website on your iPhone's homescreen. We now implemented a
real iPhone/Smartphone friendly design that presents our articles as many online newspapers do. Do
not hesitate to send us your comments if you encounter any inconvenience using this new interface.

Transport Expertise attended the <strong>10th Annual Golden Spike Seminar</strong> organized by
the <strong>Indiana High Speed Rail Association</strong> on March 19 and 20 in Merrillville,
Indiana. Matthieu Desiderio's presentation on "Intermodality in Passenger Transportation" and "Private
Participation in Public Transportation" will be made available online on Transport Expertise website in
the next couple days. Since this event, and especially Jean-Pierre Loubinoux (SNCF International
Chairman and CEO) presentation, was a great success, we decided to provide you with a selection of
articles that have been published in the U.S. press. A similar article with French newspapers
publications is also available on our French website. <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>High-
speed rail conference rolls into Merrillville (Northwest Indiana Times, March 18, 2009)</strong></p>
<p style="padding-left: 30px;">[...] "I really believe Indiana can emerge as a leader in rail transport,"
said Dennis Hodges, Indiana High Speed Rail Association founder. "We did it once before, and we can
do it again."</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">But Hodges admits high speed rail has so far been a
go-slow proposition in Indiana. State and local officials here are notably cool toward the idea while
governors and public officials in other states already have announced plans for the high-speed rail
stimulus funds.</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">The 10th Annual Golden Spike Seminar is
scheduled to begin with an overview at 8:30 a.m. at the Radisson Hotel in Merrillville. Registration
and payment will be taken at the door. [...] (<a title="High-speed rail conference rolls into Merrillville"

<strong>As the airlines are deeply affected by the crisis, Air France-KLM is ready to do a huge $20
Billion order for the acquisition of a hundred of medium capacity long-haul planes.</strong>
<h3><span style="color: #800000;">A sector strongly affected by the crisis</span></h3> All the
constituents of the air activity are strongly affected by the economic crisis. The freight activity is the
most affected, with a drop off 23,3% over one year according to IATA (International Air Transport
Association, which gathered 93% of airlines statistics). The passenger traffic decreased as well, less
5,6 % in January, still according to IATA. Worse, Business classes are empty while airlines make the
biggest margins on their high yield passengers. No company avoids this crisis: profits are inevitably
impacted, whatever the size, the markets, or the main region of activity of the companies. So,
Lufthansa announced a decrease of 64% of its net profit in 2008, Cathay Pacific lost 870 million Euro
in 2008, and the low cost Aer Lingus announced a net 107,8 million Euro loss in 2008. Globally, IATA
announced a global losses of 6 billion Euro for the industry in 2008. <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">A strategy: reduction of capacity</span></h3> With a sector in chronic overcapacity,
which used to runs with annual increases of traffic (except after September 11th, 2001 and the first war
in Iraq), the sudden and unexpected fall off the traffics will probably make big damages, which will
result in bankruptcies and concentrations.<!--more--> Already, the companies try to adapt themselves
by reducing capacities. American Airlines announced that their passenger-miles offer (ASM) is down
by 6,5% this year (9% for Domestic routes, 2,5 % for the International ones), Delta Airlines wish to
reduce their International offer by 10%, and Air France – KLM cut their offer by 3,4% for this
Summer season compared to 2008. At the same time, the staff cuts are now common.
Actually, airlines privilege ―sweet‖ solutions like non-replacement of retirements or voluntary
departures. For instance, Air France – KLM plan to decrease in 3 % its workforce, using these
methods. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">A380: an anti-crisis aircraft</span></h3> A380 is a
plane which does not know the crisis. Singapore Airlines with 7 A380s and their fabulous commercial
success give the proof: the load factor of their A380 exceeds 90%, while the companies aim an average
rate of 75 % today! By reducing the number of flights and even increasing the capacity, the jumbo will
allow to realize 15 % savings by passenger on a Paris - New York journey, according to Air Franc,e
which might plan to merge its 2 late afternoon Paris - New York flights into only one operated by an
A380. Besides, all the companies which operate the plane increase market shares on the routes
operated by their A380s because of the general craze it creates. Finally, in a context of overloaded
airports, like Heathrow, where the prices of slots reach peaks (e.g. 30 million Euro per pair for the last
transactions), gains for a airline by cutting a daily round-trip is substantial. However, in a context
where financing is particularly hard, airlines seem to have difficulties in financing the aircraft. For
example, Air France – KLM would have difficulties in obtaining the long terms loans they need to pay
their whole order, and Emirates would postpone some deliveries as well. <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">Long-terms strategies?</span></h3> Air France would announce at the end of this
Summer a $20 Billion bid for the acquisition of a hundred of medium size long-haul planes (A350 or
B787). There is in fact nothing new, as this order has been planned for ages. It was postponed for
various reasons, including specifications not being supplied by the manufacturers. Planes would be
delivered in 2014-2015 (first stage would be replacement of Air France A340 and KLM MD-11), a
perfect timing for the company which indeed hopes that at this moment the crisis will be past, with a
potential increase of fuel prices, and thus the competitive advantage of a young fleet, mechanically
burning less fuel. Finally, ordering aircraft in this period of economic slump is probably the best way
for Air France to make the bill fall… Especially since the financing of those will be probably easier to
settle, as usual in the sector; 20% will be to pay at signature, and the remaining 80 % on delivery.

Since Airbus delivered 12 A380 aircraft in 2008 (to Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Qantas), the
delivery forecast for 2009 and 2010 remains unclear. Air France should be the next carrier on the list,
with the first aircraft due for expected delivery in October 2009 and revenue service on the New York
JFK route for crew familiarization. (For more details, see: <a title="http://www.bolsamania.fr"

=PARISANA03-11-2009-16-46-00.xml&amp;isin=FR0000031122&amp;esficha=1</a>) Lufthansa
should join ―the club‖ in Spring 2010. The German carrier launched a web micro-site to communicate
on this major event. (For more details, see: <a
title="http://a380.lufthansa.com/#en/main/faszination_fliegen/intro"
href="http://a380.lufthansa.com/#en/main/faszination_fliegen/intro"
target="_blank">http://a380.lufthansa.com/#en/main/faszination_fliegen/intro</a>) On the negative
side, some carriers are reported to be in discussions with Airbus to delay future deliveries (Air France,
Singapore Airlines, Emirates). Moreover, Emirates is reported to have delivered to Airbus an extensive
list of malfunctions which need to be fixed. (For more details, see: <a
title="http://www.atwonline.com/news/story.html?storyID=15942"
href="http://www.atwonline.com/news/story.html?storyID=15942"
target="_blank">http://www.atwonline.com/news/story.html?storyID=15942</a>) While schedule
adjustments are part of routine airline management (e.g. Emirates replacing A380s with B777 on the
Dubai-New York JFK route), as well as technical teething problems (fuel leaks on Qantas aircraft), it
seems that every information or rumor related to the A380 feeds the headlines of the economical press.

Hi Jennifer, I agree with you. There might be 2 reasons: - with B787 still on ground tests (first
flight sometimes this summer?) and first delivery to ANA sometimes in 2010, there is no need for
further negative comments! - Airbus might expect the same uncertainties with A350XWB Cheers.

It appears odd to me that the fuss and publicity made by Boeing (and the media) about the late
delivery and delays of the Airbus A380, has not caused a reciprocal media response to that being
experienced by Boeing - with regard to their own aircraft delivery schedule. I wonder why? Or is
Boeing (and the media) allowed to throw teddy bears in the air about a European manufacturer,
but not the other way around... I also haven't noticed Airbus making such remarks about the
slipped Boeing schedule...... Whats good for the Goose etc etc

At 3.38pm on March 2nd, 1969, Concorde 001 takes off from Toulouse (France). On April
9th, 1969, Concorde 002 leaves the British ground at Filton (UK). Concorde was the
first (and only) supersonic civil airliner, an extraordinary aircraft conceived, designed and assembled
for the first time jointly by British and French teams. A worldwide famous aerospace Star and
a technical success, Concorde was chartered for prestige travels or for exclusive use of Heads of States
or celebrities, but was above all an airliner for "regular" revenue flights. Unique supersonic civil
aircraft, Concorde represented for Air France, not to say for France, the Herald of the refinement and
"de luxe" French flair. It seemed natural for a group of enthusiasts from Toulouse to pay a tribute to
Concorde thru a website introducing, among various information, a Collection of more than 1,500
items only dedicated to Prototype and Air France Concorde aircraft. This Collection, named
"Concordescopia", is of a high historical interest, since it includes items which exist in no other
Collection or Air museum anywhere in the World ! (See: <a
href="http://www.concordescopia.com">http://www.concordescopia.com/</a>)

This year the world‘s first Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) system will open at London‘s Heathrow
Airport (LHR). The system will comprise some 4 kilometers of track and will link one station in
Terminal 5 to 2 remote stations in the Business car park. This simple application may later be
expanded to include around 30 kilometers of track, 350 vehicles and 50 stations serving Terminals 1,
2, 3 and 5 and linking them to office blocks and hotels in the vicinity of the airport. The system
selected for this first application is the ULTra System conceived by Martin Lowson. It comprises
small, light, rubber tyred, battery powered vehicles which run nonstop from the boarding station to the
alighting station carrying 1-4 passengers and their luggage. PRT is currently being installed and tested
at Heathrow with the majority of the infrastructure now complete. There will be a chance to view the
infrastructure and vehicles during the course of the conference.<!--more--> PRT systems are likely
soon to have urban and suburban applications. PRT‘s great strength will be its ability to compete with
the private car in the dispersed suburban travel markets which have largely been created by the car.
There are already proposals for urban PRT systems in the UK, while overseas there have been
feasibility studies of regional and even national systems. The object of the conference is to allow
delegates to view the ULTra system at LHR, to inform them about progress being made here and
elsewhere and to consider the future roles and significance of PRT. On the third morning of the
conference, delegates will additionally be able to hear presentations from the European project
CityMobil, which has been exploring other ways that 21st Century technology may transform urban
transport. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3> <ul> <li>Conference

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">France-Spain motorways of the sea by 2009! </span></h3>
Dominique Bussereau, French State Secretary in charge of transport, and Magdalena Alvarez Arza,
Spanish Ministry for transport infrastructure signed up a roadmap aiming at developing motorways of
the sea services between both countries. They agreed on investing €30 million over a 5-years period.
Nevertheless, if the maritime services to be put in place will benefit from State aids (€30 million), no
financial supports will be allocated to transport providers who will use the ad hoc services. In order to
be granted with European aids, operators will have to participate to the 2009 Marco Polo call for
proposals which ends ont the May 8, 2009. The services are expected to be in operation by late 2009.
Following feedbacks from invitations to tender launched by the French-Spanish intergovernmental
commission , two proposals were accepted: the Acciona Trasmediterránea and Grimaldi- Louis
Dreyfus Armateurs services. The Acciona Trasmediterránea service will operate two maritime lines:
Nantes-Saint-Nazaire-Vigo (28 hours) and Le Havre-Vigo (36 hours). From 2010, another service will
connect Le Havre, Vigo and Algeciras. On a weekly basis, the operator proposes 4 departures from
French ports and will make them 7 in the mid-term. It is to note that these services are designed for
trailers only. The Grimaldi- Louis Dreyfus Armateurs service will provide a service between Nantes-
Saint-Nazaire-Gijón available to accompanied transport. Four departures per week are planned (7 in
the mid-term) are planned and the distance will be covered in 14 hours.<!--more--> The creation of
these services is expected to induce a modal shift of 100,000 trucks per annum. This objective, if so
achieved, will not only address environmental issues but also significantly reduce road congestion on a
corridor where international traffics are substantial. According to Magdalena Alvarez Arza, the
economic impact of road congestion was 0.5% of GDP in 2001 and even reach 1% nowadays. Traffics
going through the Pyrenees are however much higher than the expected modal shift. About 20,000
trucks per day cross over the Pyrenees via the two main alternatives, Perthus and Biriatou – although it
decreased by roughly 5% in 2008 compared to 2007. Even a couple of haulers deem this service
pertinent, since the 14 hours long journey between Nantes-Saint-Nazaire and Gijón allow drivers to
have their legal break on board. What's more, 14 hours is also quite competitive with road's travel
times. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">Why the Toulon-Civitavechia line closed
down...</span></h3> This announcement was made few weeks after the only Mediterranean
motorways of the sea service was stopped. Reason put forward by the operator (GLD Lines, a
combination of Grimaldi and Louis Dreyfus Armateurs groups) was the economic downturn that
particularly affected the automotive industry. The drop in demand of vehicles to be carried led the
operator to put an end to the service in February, 2009. For the first year of the maritime line (2005),
5,000 trucks were boarded. In 2006, they were 10,000 becoming 16,000 in 2007. However, with a
decreasing demand and a price set to €330 per truck, GLD Lines did not manage to make profits in 4
years of operation. Overall, the service experienced a loss of €16 million. Yet, €4 million distinct
financial supports from Europe and France : €2 million coming from the French State and €2 million
from the Marco Polo programme (contrary to previously-made commitments, Italy apparently never
paid the €100 per truck grant under the Eco-Bonus scheme intended to car-carriers). <h3><span
style="color: #800000;">Rolling road as a complement to motorways of the sea on western
France</span></h3> Besides, French Ministry recently announced the creation of a rolling road on
western France. This new service is to be in operation by late 2011 and will connect Lille and Paris to
Bayonne (South-West of France). Likewise the motorways of the sea schemes, this intermodal solution
is expected to take trucks off the road on a corridor where international traffics are considerable.
Invitation to tender will be soon released. Parameters of the service still remain to be set, but by 2020
the service is expected to propose about 10 departures per day from each end of the line. Today's
freight transport policies definitely tend to encourage modal shift by promoting alternatives to road
transport. These alternatives are all the more efficient and relevant that the transport infrastructures'
and services' design matches the users' needs. As a reminder two rolling roads already exist in France:
<ul> <li>one in the Alps, from Aiton to Orbassano; and</li> <li>one which connects Luxembourg to
Perpignan</li> </ul> From haulers viewpoint, the existing Alps crossing-over rolling roads (not only
in France, but also in Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia and Italy) have for instance proved themselves
appropriate options when it is to go through the Alps where truck traffics are often both physically and
legally constrained. Contrary to most of the Alps schemes, the Luxembourg-Perpignan rolling road
launched in October, 2007 which covers a 1,050 km long distance only carries trailers. In that sense,
the concept is similar to combined transport, but instead of being shipped with swap bodies, the train
is filled with trailers. However, one year and half after it was launched, the service is having trouble to
make it profitable. The creation of a second daily departure mid-2009 is expected to draw additional
traffic. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3> <ul> <li> Autoroute de la mer :

<h3><span style="color: #800000;">Fast facts about the LKW-Maut</span></h3> <span
style="color: #800000;"> </span>The <em>LKW-Maut</em> is the German global toll scheme
applied to goods trucks over 12 tons since January 1, 2005. Haulers are charged for the distance they
run on German motorways. The tax also depends on the number of axles and the CO2 emission
category of the vehicle. <em>Toll Collect </em>is the organisation in charge of monitoring the whole
scheme and collecting the toll. Each driver has an on-board unit (OBU) installed in the truck. These
electronic devices are paid by German Government and make possible to know the exact mileage
made by every truck on German motorways. When the system was launched, the average amount of
the toll was €0.12/km. After 4 years of operation, <em>Toll Collect</em> deems the scheme a success
since distances run by trucks with higher emissions rate had significantly decreased. Apparently, the
cumulated mileage of trucks from S0, S1 and S2 pollutants rejection categories compared to total
mileage has gone down from 48% in 2005 to 8% in November 2008. <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">A meaningful action to protest</span></h3> Since January 1, 2009, toll fares have been
increased. Basically, 4 axles and more vehicles will be charged between €0.155/km if they are Euro V
and €0.288/km if Euro 0 and Euro I. This increase - supposed to generate about €1 billion in 2009 for
the German Ministry for Transport (<em>Bundesministerium für Verkehr, Bau und
Sdadtentwiclung</em>) -, was all the same hard to accept that it occurred as the freight sector is
particularly impacted by the worldwide economic slowdown. The BGL (<em>Bundesverband
Güterkraftverkehr Logistik und Entsorgung</em>), an important workers organisation which is clearly
against it, promotes initiatives allowing haulers to display their dissatisfaction about it. Here are
pictures available on their website ! They can be found at the rear doors of some trucks in Germany
and are also distributed as flyers. <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.bgl-
ev.de/images/downloads/medienkampagne_rueckwandplakat_2009.pdf"><img class="size-full wp-
image-853 aligncenter" title="BGL media campaign - sample#1" src="http://en.transport-
expertise.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/20090410-bgl_angela.bmp" alt="&quot;Milliardenhilfe für

nach deiner Mauterhöhung hat Papa den ganzen Tag Zeit für mich.&quot;" width="288" height="324"
/></a></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Approximate translations are: "<em>Billions for banks,
euthanasia for transport companies</em>" and "<em>Wicked, Angela, since your toll increase, my
daddy has lots of spare time for me during the day</em>".</p> <h3><span style="color:
#800000;">Is this a glimpse of what we will see in France in a couple of years…?</span></h3> As a
reminder, France will implement a very similar scheme to the LKW Maut‘s by 2012, and even earlier
as a test in the Alsace region. Shall French politicians already prepare for this kind of actions in the
future, then? <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3> <ul> <li>website:

Three days ago, French newspaper Les Echos announced Veolia Environnement would be looking for
a buyer for its freight rail operation subsidiary. By 2011, the environmental group plans to cede about
€3 billion worth of assets, among which Veolia Cargo division... a branch that realised a turnover
worth €188 million in 2008. This freight division was first created in 2003 before the freight rail
operation market was opened in France in 2005, Veolias Cargo has couple subsidiaries in different
European countries (France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy) and two specialized companies (Socorail
and CFTA Cargo). Veolia Cargo traffic flows are mainly directed toward Germany and it increased
considerably when the company bought out Rail4Chem in February 2008, thus increasing its turnover
by 60%. Since Veolia Environnement is looking for reducing its debt of around €2 billion, since the
2008 net result divided by two from the previous year at €405 million, since the stocks lost 43% of its
market value in the last 12 months, the mothers company needs to bring back confidence among its
investors. Traffic flows in freight rail dropped up to 40-50% and Veolia Cargo even stopped its
cooperation with French marine shipping company CMA-CGM: both companies shut down their joint
venture, Veolia Cargo Link, in march 2009... Selling subsidiaries is a way to get cash flow back
flowing!<!--more--> From the outside, we can wonder who will buy out Veolia Cargo: Deutsche
Bahn, who already spent €700 million in the United Kingdom to buy out EWS? Another European
key-player in freight operation, from Spain or Italy? This will definitely be a way to compete against
the French National Railway Company, SNCF... However, from "information or propaganda" to an
official "announcement", the selling of Veolia Cargo seems real enough to have SNCF, the French
National Railway company interested in buying out the private company's freight rail operations!
Pierre Blayau, SNCF Fret (SNCF freight division) President confirmed his company's interest in its
direct opponent on the French market. <h3><span style="color: #800000;">References</span></h3>

Since its implementation in the French capital city on July 15, 2007, it is now time to give a couple
facts and figures about the free-access bike system developed by advertising company JCDecaux
subsidiary Cyclocity. Velib' system is available 24/7 in 1451 stations spread in Paris city's,
approximately every 300 meters, providing its users with 20,000+ bikes. When implementing the
system after winning a trial against its direct opponent Clear Channel concerning the public
procurement process, JCDecaux estimated the advertising contract revenues would be worth €60
million annually while the cost of Velib' would be approximately €40 to 50 million a year... However,
after a couple of months of operation, the viability of the system has been proven endangered by the
cost of maintenance... Around 1,500 bikes are repaired every day and these costs are definitely not
compensated by user's fares. According to internal sources, every bike wocould cost around €2,500 to
JCDecaux, whereas only €1,000 were included in the business plan and budget. <!--more--> As of
today, the estimates are impressive: up to 11,600 bikes vandalized, 7,800 bikes that disappeared, and
more than 3,200 complaints filed by JCDecaux for theft or vandalization. These alarming figures
should however be put aside the large number of daily users (78,000 in average) and the number of
kilometers travelled per bike per year (estimated at 10,000 km/year!). The quality of bikes even if
necessary for users to enjoy a pleasant ride is not only a matter of maintenance and people need to be
conscious they have to care about the vehicle they use, as any other mean of public transportation, as if
it was a train, a bus, or a subway... <h3><span style="font-weight: normal;"><span style="color:

<strong>[Linköping, May 21, 2009] </strong><em>In competition with more than 500 candidates
Beamways has been selected as one of the Sustainable Innovators 100 by Globe Forum</em>. The
Jury of Globe Forum (<a title="Globe Forum" href="http://www.globeforum.com"
target="_blank">www.globeforum.com</a>) has selected 100 companies that offer the most exciting
sustainable innovations and that are most likely to succeed, from more than 500 candidates from 16
countries. One of the companies selected is the Swedish developer of Personal Rapid Transit (PRT)
systems Beamways AB. Being a part of the Sustainable Innovators 100 will enable Beamways to
market its concept to investors and decision makers from all corners of the world, many of whom act
outside the specialist networks where the Beamways concept is already well established. Beamways
CEO, Mr. Bengt Gustafsson, welcomes this opportunity. ―We are proud to be selected‖, he says and
continues, ―PRT systems are after many years as a technology playground with fanciful demonstration
projects finally emerging as a serious tool to help solve the traffic problems of our cities. Our
technology addresses the individual needs for flexibility in time and efficient routing while also
improving the environment and public safety. We can also show that PRT can be made financially
efficient for all parties in competition with other public transport systems and individual automobile
traffic.‖ Gustav Gorecki of the Globe Forum organization says: ―Beamways is exactly the type of
company we want to help develop. Early, competent and with a concept that is both perfectly in line
with the targets of our organization as well as making sense businesswise.‖<!--more--> <h3><span
style="color: #800000;">About Beamways</span></h3> Beamways AB is a privately owned
company based in Linköping, Sweden. The Beamways concept for Personal Rapid Transport (PRT)
system has been developed over two years. Beamways is in a two year period where it will conduct a
number of studies to verify that the basic concepts works. Patents for the main ideas will also be
obtained. After this period further capital will be needed to prove the concept with a complete test
track. In parallel with this technical development project Beamways also engages in political lobbying
activities to promote PRT, participates in PRT studies and research and conducts marketing activities.
More information is available on our home page <a title="Beamways"

style="color: #800000;">About Globe Forum</span></h3> The annual business conference and
networking event Business Innovation for Sustainable Growth, is where entrepreneurs, corporate
leaders, investors and government from different countries and regions are invited to create relations

Transport Expertise starts a new series of product called "This week, Transport Expertise read...": a
press review of articles selected by Transport Expertise members among their readings, to share with
our visitors what we are interested in... Hereafter stands articles about Urban Mobility. We plan to
provide a selection for every major topic we are working on: Rail, Roads &amp; Logistics, Air, Urban
Mobility, Maritime &amp; Waterways. <strong>"More U.S. airports add rail service to downtown" by
Roger Yu, USA TODAY, May 25, 2009</strong> <em>Riding the rails between downtown and the
airport is becoming a reality for more U.S. travelers. With their roadways jammed with cars and
shuttles, a growing number of domestic airports are building or have plans for a rail link that will
connect passengers from the terminals to regional metro-rail systems, allowing road warriors and
vacationers to ditch their cars. </em>[...] Link: <a title="More U.S. airports add rail service to

Advertising Market" by WILLIAM NEUMAN, New York Times, May 24, 2009</strong> <em>The
worst advertising market in decades has had a devastating, and well-documented, effect on
newspapers, magazines and television networks. But now another recipient of ad dollars is being hurt

many of the ads that appear on buses and trains and in stations in New York, Boston, Minneapolis and

Even though location might be approximate, speed is accurate (verified post trip with the driver).
America needs high-speed rail to move faster forward. <p style="text-align: center;"><a
href="http://en.transport-expertise.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/303-in-MPH.png"><img
class="size-medium wp-image-982 aligncenter" title="188.7 MPH" src="http://en.transport-
expertise.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/303-in-MPH-200x300.png" alt="188.7 MPH" width="200"
height="300" /></a></p> The train was riding approximately at 188 mph or 300 kph. This is not top
speed but... commercial speed: Marseilles to Paris in 3h08, 863 kilometers (or 537 miles)... Average
speed of 171.2 mph with a stop in Avignon. What do you say?

RATP, Paris transit operator, developped an application specially designed for iPhone users, that allow
public transport users to check live schedule of any metro, light-rail, bus that runs on RATP network.
The system also provides a full clickable map of the whole network, itinerary planning, localisation of
the nearest station using the iPhone's embedded GPS, and traffic info. We provide you with a couple
screenshots below: <table style="text-align: center; width: 100%;" border="0" cellspacing="5"

Spanish budget airlines Vueling and Clickair are due to complete a merger this week. They are set to
formally combine on July 9 to create what the new Vueling CEO Alex Cruz calls ‗a merger of equals.‘
The move follows the Spanish stock market regulator CNMW exempted Iberia from making a
takeover bid for the new airline. Iberia will hold a 45.85% shareholding in the new Vueling. The 36-
month old Clickair brand will disappear and Vueling will become Spain‘s second largest carrier flying
11 million passengers a year from six bases including its Barcelona headquarters. The new Vueling
will cover a route network of almost 50 destinations. The merged airline will also retain Clickair
flights to Casablanca and Marrakech, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Warsaw, Budapest and Bucharest. Italy
will continue to be Vueling‘s second biggest market after Spain. Madrid will feature prominently on
the new Vueling‘s network as one of its six Spanish bases, the others being Barcelona, Seville, Bilbao,
Malaga and Valencia. The new Vueling will cater for 70% leisure/30% business travellers, said Cruz.
Vueling will operate 35 Airbus A320s (18 aircraft coming from clickair and 17 from Vueling), serve
46 airports and run 92 routes. The combined workforce will total 1,300, including flight crew and
office staff. Source: <a title="http://www.travelmole.com" href="http://www.travelmole.com"

cargo/

Announced in May 2009, Veolia Cargo auctionning should be completed by the end of the year in the
form of a joint buying from SNCF and Eurotunnel, if validated by the French and European
competition authorities. Following the 2008 4th quarter and first semester of 2009 which were heavily
impacted in terms of activity, as for any other European rail freight undertakings, Veolia Transport
voiced about selling its cargo branch, as a part of a 3 G€ asset selling plan, 1G€ having to be obtained
by the end of the year. Under a debt weighing about 2 G€ in 2008, and having performed a halved
profit compared to 2007, hardly reaching 405 M€, Veolia Environment was looking to earn 100M€
with the cession of Veolia Cargo. This subsidiary of a revenue around 188M€ in 2008 had been
experiencing an explosive growth since 2003. At that time, the rail operator was only consisting of its
German and Netherlandish branches and was soon added the French branch, in 2005, which was
accounting for CFTA Cargo and Socorail, as well as a new domestic operator, the whole French
subsidiary accounting for a 50 M€ revenue in 2008. The growth was completed in early 2008 after the
merging with the German rail operator Rail4Chem, created by a chemical shippers consortium. This
last absorption led to a 60% growth in the revenue of Veolia Cargo. The anouncement of Veolia
Cargo cession led to some emotions within the railway undertakings community, especially towards
the identity of a possible buyer. Veolia Cargo was indeed chronologically the first private company to
have operated a freight train in France (in 2005) and was therefore regarded by many as the symbol of
competition within the rail sector. Quite unsurprisingly, the potential buyers were no one else than
incumbants: DB-Schenker, SNCF and Trenitalia. DBS, which undertook a heavy year of external
growths (mainly EWS, Transfesa, and increases in the capital of some Polish operators, etc.) finally
withdrawn from the bidding process. In the end, this is a quite unexpected joint acquisition that is
likely to occur: SNCF is buying out Veolia Cargo foreign activities (Veolia Cargo Deutschland, Italia,
Nederland), while Eurotunnel (via its subsidiary Europorte2) would purchase the domestic ones. SNCF
is therefore in the ideal position, in which she acquires Veolia Cargo portfolios and assets abroad,
especially the former Rail4Chem which will enable the French incumbent to compete directly with
DBS on its domestic market, without having to deal with rationalization plans to manage the
redundancies in their production system or competition authorities blaming in the case of a complete
purchase of Veolia Cargo. When it comes to Europorte2, the relevance of such a purchase is to be
questionned. At the moment, this entity is exclusively operating from Fréthun (FR) to Dollands Moor
(UK), that is to say from one side of the Channel tunnel to the other one, as a subcontractor for
railways undertakings, even if the license under which is operating Europorte2 enables it to ride on the
main lines, provided the drivers to be certificated on each trip. Thus, if the domestic main line
activities purchase can make sense when it comes to Europorte2, the way how other Veolia Cargo
France subsidiaries, such as Socorail (terminal locomotives operations, manoeuvres, maintenance of
terminal installations, etc. in ports or industrial plants) or CFTA Cargo (bundled management and
operation of about 150km of freight only tracks to which the company is physically bonded by leasing)
will benefit Eurotunnel group has yet to be found.
