  • ABX Logistics réalisera en 2002 de meilleurs résultats que prévu
    “Malgré une conjoncture affaiblie, nous prévoyons que cette année le chiffre d’affaires sera supérieur aux prévisions, et nous échappons à la baisse de 5 à 7% que connaissent d’autres groupes”. C’est ce qu’a annoncé Etienne Schouppe, le CEO d’ABX Logistics, en marge de l’inauguration du nouveau centre régional de Vilvorde. Le CA devrait atteindre cette année environ 3 mia. d’EUR. Il a ajouté qu’EBITDA sera légèremennt inférieur et l’EBIT légèremennt supérieur aux budgets. Aux clients, il s’est adressé en rappelant le rôle que joue une organisation logistique internationale et intégrée comme ABX Logistics en faveur d’une économie nationale belge résolument orientée sur l’international.
  • CMA CGM a bien résisté à la baisse des frets

Le groupe français reste optimiste quant au résultat annuel, qui devrait même dépasser le résultat de 2001.
  • Burger restructure pour mieux préparer les développements à venir
    “Nous sommes effectivement engagés dans un programme de restructuration, ce qui est normal après toutes les acquisitions auxquelles le groupe a procédé ces dernières années. Cela implique des rationalisations, surtout au niveau des services de soutien comme l’informatique, l’administration, la documentation, etc. Cette restructuration a un prix, mais il y aura un minimum de pertes d’emplois (entre 40 et 50 sur 800) et l’opération ne compromet en rien l’avenir du groupe, qui est toujours financièrement très sain.” Par ces propos, C.H. van den Boer, président du Royal Burger Group, qui était de passage lundi dernier à Anvers, entend couper court aux rumeurs non-fondées qui circulent sur le marché et selon lesquelles le groupe serait en difficulté.
