  • Europe-Far East: la FEFC contrainte de recommander une plus forte réduction de la capacité
    Pour les lignes containérisées opérant sur la route Europe-Far East, la situation semble se dégrader progressivement, à telle enseigne que la Far Eastern Freight Conference se trouve dans l'obligation de conseiller à ses membres d'accroître le processus de réduction de la capacité mis en route pour ce dernier trimestre de l'année. Précisons que cette réduction de capacité ne se fait pas d'une manière programmée ou concertée, mais qu'elle résulte d'actions propres à chacun des armements. On sait que la FEFC avait recommandé une réduction de capacité de l'ordre de 10% pour la période octobre/mars 2002. Lors de la réunion tenue à Hong-Kong la semaine dernière, il a fallu revoir la situation et il a été recommandé de doubler ce pourcentage.
  • Strasbourg: aura un nouveau terminal opérationnel en 2004
    La décision s’est fait attendre. Elle vient d’être prise: le port de Strasbourg sera doté d’un nouveau terminal containers, dont la mise en service est prévue pour 2004. Ce projet, nourri quelques temps déjà par le Port autonome, s’était heurté jusqu’ici aux réserves de la Ville de Strasbourg. Celle-ci n’en discutait pas l’opportunité, c’est vrai, mais avait quelques scrupules a accepter que l’on démolisse, dans la foulée, les «entrepôts publics» rappelant, avec leur architecture caractéristique, le développement de l’activité portuaire strasbourgeoise à la charnière des 19e et 20e siècles.
  • Hessenatie Logistics investit dans le renouvellement de sa flotte de camions
    L'entreprise anversoise Hessenatie Logistics vient de réceptionner 25 nouveaux camions. Il s'agit de 22 tracteurs Iveco EuroTech et de trois transporteurs de voitures Iveco avec remorques et châssis Lohr. Ils remplaceront autant de camions MAN, une opération qui s'inscrit dans un programme de renouvellement de sa flotte. Il y a cependant peu de chances de voir ces nouveaux camions sur les routes belges et européennes: ils ne seront pratiquement utilisés que dans la zone portuaire d'Anvers.
  • Hapag-Lloyd: Bernd Wrede s'en va...
    La haute direction de la maison-mère Preussag vient de l'annoncer: Bernd Wrede (58 ans), président du conseil exécutif de l'armement Hapag-Lloyd va quitter l'entreprise à la fin de cette année, à l'expiration de son contrat. La nouvelle n'a pas manqué de surprendre tant en Allemagne qu'à l'étranger. Hapag-Lloyd va ainsi perdre un de ses plus brillants managers, si pas le plus brillant, qui a contribué à faire de cette entreprise l'armement le mieux géré d'Europe, mais aussi le plus rentable.
