  • Hino en pourparlers avec MAN ... ou avec Scania?
    L’hebdomadaire allemand Manager Magazin a révélé que Toyota a entamé des négociations avec un des principaux actionnaires de MAN, Allianz AG Holding, dans le but d’explorer d’éventuelles coopérations avec la branche “Camions” du groupe automobile japonais, Hino. Toyota a toutefois immédiatement réagi en qualifiant ces informations de “pures spéculations”. Ceci n’est pas étonnant: selon nos sources, haut-placées et proches du groupe Volkswagen, c’est avec Scania que Hino discuterait... à l’initiative du groupe suédois. Depuis quelques semaines, les informations sur des négociations exploratoires ou non font régulièrement surface, de sorte qu’il ne fait pas de doute que de nouvelles grandes manœuvres de concentration ont à nouveau commencé.
  • Flessingue rafle 350.000 t de pâte à papier à Anvers

Ce transfert interviendra dans le courant des prochains mois.

L’opérateur roro, qui mettra environ 150 millions de NOK sur la table dans ce cadre, renforcera ainsi sa position en mer du Nord (plus précisément en ce qui concerne les routes de et vers la Norvège) et accentuera sa diversification vers d’autres types de trafic comme les containers. L’offre de services de DFDS Tor Line et Lys-Line resterait inchangée. Les deux armements sont actifs sur la route entre Gand et la Scandinavie.
  • FedEx: bénéfices en hausse d’un quart
    Au cours du deuxième trimestre fiscal, le transporteur de colis FedEx a enregistré une hausse de son bénéfice de 26% par rapport à la même période de l’an dernier. La baisse des prix de carburant et la compensation que l’autorité américaine a accordé à l’industrie aérienne après le 11 septembre, ont fait grimper le bénéfice net à 245 mio. d’USD au cours du trimestre qui a été clôturé le 30 novembre dernier. Les revenus d’exploitation de FedEx ont augmenté au cours du deuxième trimestre de 4,9%, de 4,9 mia. d’USD à 5,14 mia. d’USD.
