  • Cho Yang relance des services dans d’autres conditions
    L’histoire du liner est parsemée d’exemples d’armements qui à un moment donné de leur existence ont connu de graves diffcultés, ont battu de l’aile pendant quelque temps et sont parvenus à refaire surface. Tout semble indiquer que l’armement sud-coréen Cho Yang Shipping Co, entreprise familiale, qui traverse une période de crise, dont nous avons déjà évoqué certains aspects dans ces colonnes, est en passe d’en sortir et s’apprête à prendre un nouveau départ. La situation financière étant en cours d’assainissement, l’heure de la relance est arrivée.
  • Premier pas des entreprises portuaires gantoises vers un lobbying plus efficace
    Les entreprises portuaires gantoises ont affirmé leur soutien aux plans visant à faire jouer au secteur privé un rôle de premier plan dans la promotion et le lobbying du port (voir LL du 26/4). L’initiative lancée par Paul Matthijs, administrateur délégué de Sidmar et Marc Devogele, directeur commercial de Watco, a donc trouvé un relais. Si tout se déroule comme prévu, les structures et le fonctionnement de tant l’Association des intérêts maritimes gantois (VGZ) que la Communauté portuaire de Gand (GH) vont connaître d’importantes modifications dans les prochains mois. La réforme de ces deux groupements doit être terminée pour le début de 2002. L’échevin du port, Daniël Termont, dit soutenir les plans et espérer une “nouvelle dynamique”.
  • E-terminal propose d’intégrer la manutention des containers sur internet
