  • K Line entend diminuer l’importance du liner dans ses activités
    Tout récemment K Line annonçait certaines évolutions dans ses activités de lignes régulières, dont la principale est l’introduction d’un service pendulaire USA/Asie/Europe en compagnie de Yang Ming. Mais il y a plus. La stratégie que développe cet armement japonais consiste également à se diversifier davantage dans d’autres secteurs de manière à ce que son CA ne soit plus tellement tributaire du liner containérisé. C’est là une sage décision, car dans le contexte de la crise actuelle que traverse le liner Est-Ouest, ne survivront que ceux qui seront assez diversifiés.
  • L’Europe impose une amende de 2,5 mio. d’EUR à La Poste belge

Cette dernière avait déposé plainte en avril 2000 auprès de la Commission européenne et les instances européennes lui ont donné entièrement raison. La Poste a qualifié les faits “de confusion consciemment créée entre l’échange de documents (marché libéral) et le trafic postal B2B (monopole)”. A l’heure de la mise sous presse, on ne savait pas encore si elle comptait aller en appel.
