  • K Line va lancer un service pendulaire USA/Asie/Europe
    Malgré les circonstances difficiles qui prévalent dans les secteurs transpacifique et Europe/Asie, les armements n’hésitent pas à lancer de nouvelles initiatives. Ainsi, Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) prépare activement la mise en place d’un service pendulaire hebdomadaire entre la côte ouest de l’Amérique du Nord, l’Asie et l’Europe (nord et sud). Qu’on se rassure: il ne s’agit pas d’un nouveau service supplémentaire, mais d’une mutation.
  • Le redémarrage d’un Swisscargo ‘light’ se rapproche
    Le redémarrage des activités de Swisscargo n’est plus une utopie. Depuis que Crossair a annoncé que Swisscargo va reprendre la commercialisation de ses activités fret, un redémarrage de la division fret de Swissair semble proche. Une solution semble également se préciser pour les autres filiales de Swissair, quoi que certains observateurs restent critiques à l’égard du modèle 26/26.
  • Intertrans lance son projet ‘étoile’ à Vilvorde
    L’entreprise belge Intertrans est particulièrement active: ayant débuté ses activités d’expédition dans le transport routier intra-européen, l’entreprise s’est ensuite concentrée sur le Benelux en tant que prestataire de services logistiques spécialisé dans les activités à grande valeur ajoutée et la gestion de la chaîne d’approvisionnement. Outre l’activité logistique, les divisions de fret aérien et maritime et de transport routier se sont progressivement développées comme des activités à part entière d’Intertrans. Témoin de cette évolution, la filiale qui sera créée l’anné prochaine et qui assurera la gestion d’un réseau intra-européen homogène en forme d’étoile. Dans ce contexte, Vilvorde fera fonction de premier hub belge.
  • Rationalisation sur la route Europe/sous-continent indien
    Il y a quelques jours à peine, à l’issue du sommet indo-européen de New Dehli, le Premier ministre fédéral belge Guy Verhofstadt, qui assume actuellement la présidence de l’Union européenne, a laissé entendre que le commerce entre l’UE et l’Inde pourrait doubler d’ici cinq ans, passant de 25 à 50 milliards d’USD, et qu’on pouvait songer à une levée totale des barrières tarifaires de part et d’autre. Les milieux du liner qui assurent le transport de ces échanges, sont cependant confrontés à la réalité du moment, qui est que l’exploitation des services de ligne sur cette liaison est fortement déficitaire. A telle enseigne que des opérateurs commencent à se retirer, comme vient de le décider Cosco.
