  • La SNCB intéressée par une participation de 19% dans ECT
    La SNCB va-t-elle prendre, via une filiale interposée, une participation de 19% dans l’entreprise de manutention rotterdamoise ECT? A cette question, Etienne Schouppe, l’administrateur délégué de la SNCB, nous a répliqué: “Nous sommes intéressés, mais il n’y a aucun engagement de notre part...” Certaines informations émanant des Pays-Bas via l’agence ANP font état de cette perspective et une partie de la presse flamande part du principe que c’est déjà fait... Chez ECT, on ne confirme ni ne dément, considérant qu’il s’agit là d’une affaire qui relève des actionnaires. Au niveau de la SNCB, nous avons enregistré la surprise du patron d’Inter Ferry Boats, la filiale impliquée dans toutes les opérations de manutention portuaires du groupe ferroviaire belge, tant en Belgique qu’à l’étranger (exception faite des 33% détenus par la SNCB dans le Noordzeeterminal à Anvers). Il nous a laissé entendre que tout cela était très prématuré. Assez curieusement, les informations relatives à cette éventuelle prise de participation font allusion à ABX Logistics, alors que cette entité n’a rien à voir avec les terminaux portuaires.
  • Kiala va contrôler 60% de la logistique finale des ventes à distance
    Kiala, qui est opérationnel depuis fin juin et assure la logistique finale des produits achetés “à distance” (par téléphone, correspondance ou e-mail), peut se targuer d’un superbe départ après quatre mois d’activité. Non seulement, elle a franchi la barre des 150.000 envois, mais en plus l’entreprise bénéficiera d’une injection supplémentaire de 3 mio. d’EUR et son portefeuille de clients sera élargi. Suite à ce dernier élément, Kiala réalisera à partir de l’an prochain une pénétration de 60% sur le marché belge de la vente à distance.
  • TPG reprend le distributeur de vêtements Bleckmann Group

L’acquisition, qui doit encore être approuvée par les autorités compétentes, signifie une extension importante des activités de TNT Express dans la distribution de vêtements sur le continent européen.
