  • Sinotrans met fin à ses activités de lignes régulières
    C’est désormais officiel: Sinotrans a décidé d’arrêter ses activités de lignes régulières en date du 31décembre prochain et renonce donc à son rôle en tant qu’armement de ligne chinois. On ne connaît pas encore les raisons qui ont milité en faveur de cette décision, mais on peut logiquement supposer qu’en tant que “petit acteur” sur la scène du liner est-ouest et compte tenu des résultats financiers dérisoires que le grand groupe chinois génère dans ce secteur, les responsables ont jugé préférable d’arrêter les frais et de mieux se concentrer sur leurs activités de base, qui se situent dans le domaine de l’expédition.
