  • La décennie 2000 va-t-elle favoriser la relance de la consolidation dans le liner?
    L'industrie du liner containérisé a connu ces dix dernières années des évolutions assez spectaculaires, dominées par le concept des alliances et des fusions. En général la partie marketing est restée indépendante, c'est-à-dire propre à chaque armement. C'est surtout la fin des années 90 qui a été marquée par une période de consolidation, comme ce fut le cas avec le rachat d'APL par NOL, et le rachat de Sea-Land par Mærsk. Puis il y eut un coup d'arrêt. Selon Wilford Middleton, aujourd'hui partner dans "The Professional Association of Maritime Executives", après avoir été pendant 25 ans un des principaux responsables de Sea-Land, et qui présidait la première séance de conférences de la manifestation TOC qui se tient à Rotterdam, cette tendance pourrait reprendre au cours de cette décennie.
  • CargoLifter veut coopérer avec les secteurs portuaire et maritime
    CargoLifter AG, entreprise allemande spécialisée dans la construction de dirigeables, est à la recherche de partenariats avec des ports et armements. Les dirigeables, qui sont spécialement conçus pour le transport de cargaisons lourdes, peuvent également être alignés pour le transport entre les ports et l'hinterland ou vice-versa, explique le directeur financier Karl Bangert.
  • OOCL va développer ses activités à Anvers et dans le secteur reefer
    Au début du mois de juillet prochain devrait démarrer l'un des 5 services du groupe Grand Alliance sur l'Atlantique, celui que l'on appelle "butterfly" à cause du concept particulier de sa rotation. Entre-temps, les 8 PC de 2.700 qui l'animeront auront été transférés du Far East. Selon Courtenay Allan, directeur du trafic transatlantique de OOCL, que nous avons rencontré lors de son récent passage à Anvers, accompagné de Manfred Meier directeur adjoint et de Wayne Shih directeur général de CCOL (Benelux) s.a., son armement alignerait 2 à 3 unités dans ce contexte. Notre interlocuteur s'est par ailleurs prononcé en faveur d'un quatrième service direct sur Anvers, mais d'autres considérations doivent encore être étudiées avant de se prononcer en ce sens.
