  • Van Den Bulck a fait faillite
    Le tribunal de commerce d'Anvers a déclaré la faillite de la société familiale anversoise Van Den Bulck, spécialisé dans la traction de containers. Cette entreprise, qui avait pourtant une solide réputation, n'a pu traduire dans les prix de transport les récentes hausses du prix du diesel. "Certaines entreprises magouillent, acceptent de rouler à n'importe quel prix, de sorte que la concurrence dans le secteur du container est assassine", nous a déclaré au téléphone Diane Van Den Bulck. L'entreprise est la première victime importante de la flambée des prix du diesel... et de la concurrence déloyale fustigée depuis des années par les organisations professionnelles. "Le laisser-faire des pouvoirs publics fait qu'à la fin, ce seront les entreprises honnêtes qui succomberont et les transporteurs mala fide qui survivront", avertissent tant la Febetra que la SAV depuis longtemps.
