  • GLS veut devenir la principale entreprise express d’Europe
    General Logistics Systems, le service pour colis et messagerie de l’entreprise postale britannique Consignia, va progressivement introduire un nouveau nom pour son réseau européen. Le nom actuel General Parcel et celui des 18 entreprises relevant de la marque disparaîtra complètement d’ici 2005 et sera remplacé par GLS.
  • Les manutentionnaires français attendent l’approbation du dernier volet de la réforme portuaire
    D’ici la fin du mois, le gouvernement français devrait en principe annoncer les mesures visant à permettre que les grutiers conduisant les engins portuaires, notamment les portiques à containers, puissent être intégrés au sein des entreprises de manutention. Si tout se passe comme prévu - mais les pouvoirs publics français sont coutumiers du non-respect des calendriers annoncés -, les grutiers deviendront donc des employés du secteur privé, alors qu’ils dépendent encore actuellement du secteur public. Ce dernier volet de la réforme portuaire est considéré par les entreprises de manutention comme une nécessité pour mettre les ports français en position favorable face à leurs concurrents européens.
  • Conflit portuaire aux USA: quatre jours de discussions sans résultat

Entre-temps, les appels en faveur d’une intervention de l’administration Bush sonnent de plus en plus fort.
  • Prologis investit à nouveau en France et en Belgique
    Le groupe américain d’immobilier logistique Prologis a annoncé avoir conclu la vente de ses activités dans la logistique sous température dirigée (CS Integrated) à Atlas Cold Storage et P&O Cold Logistics. Après la vente de Frigoscandia en Europe il y a quelques mois, cela signifie la poursuite du désengagement de Prologis de ce secteur. Dans l’immobilier logistique proprement dit, par contre, les investissements se poursuivent. Ainsi, le groupe vient d’inaugurer à Clésud, près de Marseille, une plate-forme logistique pour le compte de TNT Logistics France, tandis qu’il vient de conclure un contrat pour l’acquisition de nouveaux terrains sur le site de l’aéroport de Vatry. Et il y a quelques jours, Prologis annonçait un premier investissement près de Liège.
