  • CP completes ANZDL buy-out
    CANADIAN Pacific has completed the acquisition of Australia - New Zealand Direct Line (ANZDL) from its two owners, Bolloré Group of France and Brierley Investments of New Zealand.
    It is understood the cost of the entire transaction was in the region of $US110 million.
    The sale includes ANZDL’s container shipping services and brand name in two trades, the United States west coast to-from Australia/New Zealand and trans-Tasman.
    Also included are ANZDL’s organisation, its containers and chartered ships.
    ANZDL is now part of CP Ships, Canadian Pacific’s container shipping business.
    The acquisition will increase CP Ships’ annual revenue and container volume by nearly 15%.
  • CMA-CGM merger gets the green light
    THE merger between CMA and CGM can proceed according to a ruling of the Versailles Court of Appeal.
    Late last week the Court dismissed all claims made by Johnny Saade’s Societe Mistral SAL, ordering it to pay costs.
    The merger process was interrupted in November by an injunction following action by Societe Mistral SAL.
    "Since late 1996, CMA-CGM group management has developed a number of industrial synergies by combining agency networks, co-ordinating logistics, providing for common fleet management and creating a central purchasing agency," the group said in a statement.
  • Record revenue for Brisbane
    A RECORD operating revenue of $75 million for the 1997/98 financial year has been announced by the Port of Brisbane Corporation following the tabling of its annual report.
    This result was on the back of a strong container trade growth and a busy year for dredging operations.
    The Corporation’s chairman, Elizabeth Nosworthy, said that dredging revenue increased by $4 million as a result of greater dredging requirements from northern ports.
    "The continued success of dredging as a major revenue stream over the past year consolidated our decision to build a new $40 million dredger," Ms Nosworthy said.
    Earnings before interest and tax were $27 million after allowing for abnormal items of $9.5 million, with a "bottom line" net profit for the year of $11.9 million.
