  • Les problèmes en Allemagne et en Espagne pèsent sur le bénéfice de Salvesen
    Le groupe logistique britannique Christian Salvesen a enregistré au cours des six premiers mois de cette année une hausse du chiffre d’affaires de 17,8% à 411,2 millions de GBP. Des pertes en Allemagne et une baisse des activités dans le secteur automotive espagnol ont toutefois entraîné une baisse du bénéfice d’exploitation avant amortissements de 17,4% à 17,1 mio. de GBP. Mais les activités au Royaume-Uni ont progressé. Elles serviront de modèle pour l’expansion européenne de Salvesen, qui sera fortement soutenue par l’application de systèmes ICT. De nouveaux contrats logistiques ont été conclus avec Metro en France et Tesco au RU.
  • Evergreen: Anvers et Zeebrugge restent inscrits dans les deux services pendulaires
    L’armement Evergreen vient de confirmer le remplacement de ses services tour-du-monde eastbound et westbound par deux services pendulaires hebdomadaires. Cela sera réalité dès la mi-février prochain. Il s’agit d’une importante mesure de rationalisation, que dictent les circonstanes dans lesquelles évolue le liner. Les services en question maintiendront cependant la même couverture portuaire que celle des services tour-du-monde.
  • DPD va assurer le transport de colis pour Würth en Allemagne
    Le groupe allemand Würth et Deutscher Paket Dienst (DPD) ont signé un accord de coopération. DPD assurera les envois de colis des produits Würth vers le destinataire final en Allemagne. Cela signifie que DPD se chargera de la distribution et livraison de l’ensemble des colis de l’entreprise commerciale à partir de tous les magasins et points de vente en Allemagne. Dans ce nouveau concept logistique du groupe Würth, Spedition Erwin Steinle continuera à assurer les envois de diverses.
  • Zeebrugge a-t-il loupé le coche?
    Pour le port de Flessingue, qui vient d’attirer Cobelfret Ferries dans son giron, l’heure de la consécration a sonné. L’armement belge y exploitera en effet dès 2003 un grand terminal roulier mixte, c’est-à-dire axé tant sur le ro/ro maritime que sur le ro/ro fluvial. Il s ‘agit là pour le port néerlandais d’un client de choix, compte tenu de ses spécialités et disciplines opérationnelles, qui généreront d’importants trafics et entraineront des activités connexes. Daan Bruinooge, le président de Zeeland Seaports, considère qu’il s’agit là pour Flessingue d’une nouvelle percée sur la scène de la logistique shortsea. “Cette venue est plus qu’une compensation - tant en termes de volumes que de travail portuaire - pour l’implantation de Grimaldi que nous n’avons pas pu attirer, puisque cet armement a opté pour Anvers”, a-t-il dit. Si la réalisation de ce projet s’inscrit logiquement dans la stratégie expansive de Cobelfret Ferries, elle n’en aura pas moins un impact sur l’activité portuaire à Zeebrugge, qui constitue encore pour l’instant la principale base opérationnelle de l’armement sur le continent. D’où la question: la MBZ, qui exploite le port côtier belge, a-t-elle loupé le coche?
