  • L’acier européen va-t-il subir un regain protectionniste des USA?
    Avec George W. Bush à la Maison blanche, il ne pouvait en aller autrement: une enquête a été lancée par la Commission du Commerce international américaine sur d’éventuelles pratiques commerciales qui nuiraient fortement à l’industrie sidérurgique des Etats-Unis. Une fois de plus, les sidérurgistes américains, qui considèrent que ce sont les importations d’acier à bas prix qui sont la cause essentielle des faillites qui se sont produites dans leur secteur au cours des dernières années, sont parvenus à obtenir gain de cause. Des mesures américaines pourraient affecter les exportations de fers et aciers transitant par des ports comme Anvers et Gand.
  • P&O Stena Line peut poursuivre ses services ferry transmanches pendant six ans
    La Commission européenne a attribué à P&O Stena Line une exemption de six ans aux règles de concurrence européennes pour l’exploitation des services ferry transmanches, tant pour les passagers que pour le fret. En janvier 1999, l’entreprise commune P&O Stena Line avait déjà obtenu une brève exemption. Il est ressorti d’une étude de la Commission européenne que peu de changements se sont manifestés sur le marché. Autrement, l’entreprise britannique P&O et Stena Line Ltd., une filiale de l’entreprise suédoise P&O Stena Line AB, auraient pu être obligées de mettre fin à leur collaboration. La Commission européenne a annoncé qu’elle continuera à suivre de près les développements du marché et collaborera étroitement avec les organisations des consommateurs et les autorités nationales durant l’exemption, qui s’étendra jusqu’au 7 mars 2007.
  • VW reste à la recherche d’acquisitions et de partenariats dans le camion
    Volkswagen est “en permanence” à la recherche de possibilités d’acquisitions dans le secteur du camion, mais pourrait également envisager des partenariats dans ce domaine. C’est ce qu’a annoncé le PDG du groupe allemand, Ferdinand Piëch, au cours de l’assemblée générale d’hier jeudi à Hambourg. Celle-ci a été houleuse, certains grands actionnaires doutant de l’efficacité du rachat d’actions comme moyen pour se défendre contre une éventuelle OPA.
  • Exel contribue désormais au marketing de Ford
    Le prestataire de services logistiques britannique Exel et le constructeur automobile américain Ford viennent de signer au RU un contrat plutôt remarquable portant sur le soutien logistique des activités promotionnelles de Ford. Que ce dernier ait opté pour Exel n’est pas vraiment surprenant: les deux entreprises se connaissent depuis longtemps déjà. Cela met toutefois en cause les activités de base d’un producteur. Lors de colloques sur la sous-traitance d’activités, les orateurs avancent souvent qu’on arrivera à avoir des producteurs dont les activités de base se limiteront à la création et la vente, les étapes intermédiaires ayant toutes été données en sous-traitance. Avec ce contrat, il semble toutefois que Ford veuille également donner le marketing en sous-traitance...
