  • Transalliance acquiert les Transports Keulders
    Le groupe français Transalliance (Nancy) a procédé à l’acquisition de 100% des actions de la société liégeoise Keulders International (siège aux Hauts-Sarts). C’est ce que nous a confirmé Philippe Michel, président de Transalliance, au téléphone. Il estime que de nombreuses synergies pourront être développées, non seulement avec le reste du groupe en France, en Italie ou en Espagne, mais également avec HN Transport à Anvers (Zwijndrecht), une société qui se trouve de très longue date dans le giron du groupe français. Pour la société Keuders, c’est - probablement - la dernière étape d’une histoire fort mouvementée.
  • Le président du BAFI insiste sur une meilleure promotion de Brucargo
    Si la disparition de la Sabena est incontestablement regrettable, elle a toutefois été à la base de nouvelles initiatives et s’est traduite par la venue de nouveaux acteurs dynamiques sur ce marché. Et ces derniers doivent être soutenus par les expéditeurs de fret aérien. C’est ce qu’a déclaré Jean-Claude Delen, le président du Belgian Airfreight Institute (BAFI), lors de son discours inaugural de la 8e édition de la nuit de gala organisée samedi dernier par l’association des expéditeurs de fret aérien.
  • Bolloré n’entrerait pas dans le capital de Géodis
    Le groupe français Bolloré, qui devait prendre une participation dans Geodis via sa branche transports SDV, aurait décidé de ne pas souscrire à cette opération. C’est ce qu’affirme notre confrère Les Echos. Si Bolloré venait effectivement à ne pas participer à la recapitalisation de l’entreprise logistique de la SNCF, celle-ci risque de devenir laborieuse. En effet, ce seraient uniquement les actionnaires actuels qui devraient contribuer à la recapitalisation. Ce qui, entre autres pour la SNCF, ne serait pas évident.
  • L’URS va investir 147 mio. d’EUR dans une nouvelle flotte
    L’Union de Remporquage et de Sauvetage URS) se porte mieux. Le lancement la semaine dernière au chantier naval danois Orskov Staalkibværft du puissant remorqueur “Union Manta”, a été l’occasion pour la direction de faire le point sur l’évolution de l’entreprise, qui a renoué avec les chiffres noirs et consolide désormais ses positions. En effet, à l’issue du premier semestre de l’exercice en cours, le CA de 24,76 mio. d’euros (inférieur de 50% par rapport à 1997) a laissé un résultat positif de 3,4 mio. d’euros tandis que le cash flow se situait à 7,12 mio. d’euros. Pour la fin de l’année, ces résultats devraient se présenter comme suit: respectivement 48,42 mio. d’euros, 6,34 (bénéfice doublé par rapport à 2001) et 12,86 mio. L’heure est au renouvellement et au renforcement des moyens d’actions, ce qui implique, en dehors du remorqueur précité, un programme d’investissements de 112 mio. d’euros à répartir sur 5 ans et que l’URS financera en grande partie avec ses propres moyens.
