  • Evergreen remplacerait les rotations TM par des services pendulaires
    En octobre dernier, nous annonçions l’intention d’Evergreen de remplacer ses services tour du monde eastbound et westbound par un concept de services navettes chaque fois limité à un très petit nombre de ports. Au dernières nouvelles, l’armement a bel et bien la ferme intention de mettre un terme à ses deux rotation TM,plus tôt que prévu, mais ce serait pour les remplacer par deux services pendulaires hebdomadaires. La mutation interviendrait dans le courant du deuxième trimestre de l’année prochaine.
  • J. Schools: ”Van Hool est bien placé pour affronter la crise qui s’annonce”
    Van Hool enregistrera cette année-ci de “bons chiffres” compte tenu de l’annus horribilis qu’a connu le secteur. En 2000, le constructeur lierrois de bus et de semi-remorques avait dégagé un bénéfice de 2,2 mia. de BEF sur un chiffre d’affaires de 23 mia. de BEF. C’est ce que nous a déclaré Jef Schools, l’”assistant” de la direction générale - lisez l’éminence grise - de Van Hool. Selon lui, l’entreprise est bien placée pour affronter la crise qui risque de s’aggraver dans le secteur de la semi-remorque. Il prévoit par contre que plusieurs constructeurs de petite taille vont être balayés dans les mois à venir, et que dans bon nombre de cas, ils ne seront pas repris. On estime en effet qu’il y a actuellement en Europe une surcapacité de production d’au moins 10.000 unités, le marché étant cette année de grosso modo 80.000 à 90.00 unités.

Elle doit être présentée au conseil d’administration de ce vendredi. La Belgian Courier Association se pose des questions sur la transparence des comptes de La Poste et donc du coût réel des activités de service universel.
