  • Jim Poon: une nouvelle vague de consolidation s’annonce dans le liner containérisé
    “L’avenir du liner containérisé, je le vois de la manière suivante: il y aura 5 à 6 groupes d’opérateurs portant une étiquette de consortium ou une autre. Ils ne constitueront pas plus d’une douzaine de lignes qui se livreront une concurrence implacable, qui se partageront globalement entre elles les principaux segments de trafic. Les taux de fret ne seront pas plus ni moins supérieurs de 10% par rapport à ce qu’ils sont aujourd’hui, ceci à cause d’une concurrence acharnée dans tous les trafics et au grand bénéfice des chargeurs. La traditionnelle immunité anti-trust sera supprimée par le Congrès US et il en ira de même en Europe. Et lorsque cela sera un fait, on aura alors une réelle interprétation de cette notion de marché libre... Et avec un peu de chance, les armements pourraient être débarrassés de la FMC et du DGIV”. Cette vision, c’est celle que Jim Poon, président de la Hong-Kong Liner Shipping Association de Hong-Kong, a présentée lors de la conférence “Container Asia 2001, qui vient de se terminer à Kuala Lumpur.
  • Les transporteurs néerlandais disposés à payer pour l’environnement, la sécurité routière et la mobilité
    Après un débat animé au sein de son conseil d’administration, l’association Transport en Logistiek Nederland a adressé une lettre à la ministre des Transports Tineke Netelenbos, dans laquelle elle déclare que les transporteurs néerlandais sont disposés à payer les coûts liés à l’amélioration de l’environnement, de la sécurité routière et la mobilité. Ils posent toutefois une condition: que le produit de la future redevance kilométrique aille à des mesures qui profitent effectivement à cette amélioration, et ne disparaissent pas dans le budget général.
  • Logitech centralise sa distribution européenne chez Exel Tilburg

  • Fort ancrage belge lors du 41e anniversaire de l’indépendance du Congo
    Les “nokos”, comme l’indiquait récemment notre confrère, Le Soir, ont été bien accueillis à Kinshasa. Au fait les Congolais désignent par “nokos” les Belges qui sont considérés sur place comme appartenant à la même grande famille. En tout cas la présence belge a été bien remarquée ces derniers temps: visite des investisseurs du Cercle de Lorraine, en début du mois de juin, comme celle, plus récente, d’une délégation de la Fédération des entreprises belges. Et pour clore le tout, du côté politique, la présence des membres du Gouvernement belge: Premier Ministre, Vice-premier ministre, et Ministre des Affaires étrangères.
