  • La présidente de l'UEA demande à ses membres de ne pas appliquer toutes les hausses tarifaires
    Lors de la traditionnelle manifestation de fin d'année de l'Union anversoise de l'Expédition et de la Logistique, la présidente Annie Smeulders a demandé aux membres de l'organisation de ne pas appliquer systématiquement l'augmentation des tarifs portuaires: "Nous devons réaliser que nous sommes toujours un secteur de services et que le prix de ces services ne peut augmenter chaque année de plusieurs pour-cent".
  • Le réseau d'agences I-CAN offrira une couverture mondiale aux secteurs autres que le "liner"
    Un nouveau réseau mondial d'agences maritimes sera lancé en janvier prochain sous le dénominateur I-CAN (Inter-Continental Agency Network). Un groupe d'agences possédant une forte implantation régionale coopérera via un site Internet dans le but de proposer un service uniforme et de qualité à des clients qui ne sont pas actifs dans la navigation de ligne, mais dans des secteurs comme les vracs secs, le transport de gaz, les croisières et le transport reefer. Ils entendent de la sorte combiner leur "savoir-faire local" à une "couverture globale". Le réseau sera doté d'une structure officielle via la création d'une firme basée à Anvers. L'agence maritime anversoise Aseco compte parmi les fondateurs de ce partenariat et représentera I-CAN en Europe du Nord.

    La société Menlo Logistics (Redwood City, Californie), qui fait partie - avec Conway et Emery - du groupe américain CNF, a signé un accord avec le groupe NCR pour la conception et la gestion de sa logistique en Europe, en Afrique et au Moyen-Orient. C'est le deuxième contrat obtenu par Menlo en Europe, après celui signé en 1997 avec Nike Equipment. Pour appuyer l'expansion sur le Vieux Continent, un bureau a été ouvert en novembre à Amsterdam. La priorité sera donnée aux grands projets complexes, demandant une ingénierie logistique intensive, a indiqué la direction du groupe à Amsterdam.
  • Rob Martinez (Norfolk Southern): "Dissocier la traction de l'infrastructure ne marchera pas"
    La manifestation "Intermodal 99", qui se déroule ces jours-ci à Londres, s'inscrit cette année sous le signe des partenariats, ou plutôt de la recherche de partenariats. Evidemment, chacun à sa propre interprétation de ce concept. Ainsi qu'évoqué précédemment, le patron de DB Cargo, dans le cadre de la joint-venture avec NS Cargo, recherche des partenariats pour son grand réseau, mais dans l'optique d'une collaboration avec des compagnies ferroviaires nationales et régionales qui alimenteront son réseau européen.
