  • Le transporteur français Vialle dépose le bilan
    La société de transport routier française Vialle, basée à Thiviers dans le nord de la Dordogne, a été placée en redressement judiciaire par le Tribunal de Commerce de Périgueux à la fin de la semaine passée. Cela fait un certain temps que, victime entre autres d’une politique de croissance trop audacieuse, l’entreprise - une des plus grandes de la région Aquitaine - connaissait des difficultés. Keulders International, sa filiale belge, n’est pas concernée (pour l’instant). Selon son directeur, M. Tessier, elle a la capacité de pouvoir vivre de manière autonome.
  • TNWA poursuit la rationalisation de ses loops
    Il en était question depuis quelques semaines. C’est maintenant officiel: The New World Alliance met un terme à son “demi loop” NEX entre l’Europe du Nord et l’Asie, ceci dans le cadre d’un programme de rationalisation et partant, de réduction de la capacité, ce qui implique fatalement une restructuration d’autres services. Autre décision importante, mais qui doit encore tomber... elle est théoriquement attendue pour la fin de la semaine... le choix à faire entre Anvers et Rotterdam pour la concentration des services. Rappelons qu’il s’agit d’un paquet de quelque 435.000 TEU.
  • LCAG table sur une forte croissance des services spéciaux et de l’express

C’est ce qui ressort d’une étude de Lufthansa Cargo AG (LCAG) exécutée en coopération avec le bureau de consulting américain MergeGlobal Inc. (MIG).
  • Les transporteurs routiers britanniques plaident pour une taxe kilométrique
    La Freight Transport Association (FTA), l’organisation des transporteurs routiers britanniques, plaide pour l’introduction d’une taxe kilométrique. Elle réagit de la sorte à une proposition du ministère des Finances visant à réformer les charges du transport routier. C’est ce qu’annonce Lloyd’s List. La mesure doit contribuer à une utilisation plus efficace d’un réseau routier déjà fort congestionné, souligne l’association.
