  • ICF table sur une reprise de la croissance en 2001 grâce à ses nouveaux produits
    “Nous avons pu constater que la stratégie de la croissance, axée sur la rentabilité, commence à porter des fruits dans le transport combiné rail-route. Les nouveaux produits que nous avons placés sur le marché ont été un succès. D’autre part, nous avons dû constituer une provision à hauteur de neuf millions d’EUR pour les activités Frigo, opération qui a entraîné une perte nette de 1,1 mio. d’EUR pour Intercontainer-Interfrigo”. Tel est le résumé de l’exercice 2000 de l’opérateur paneuropéen de transport combiné, dressé par son PDG René Hellinghausen, en gare de Metz, lors de la conférence de presse annuelle.
  • Nigeria: l’engorgement des ports menace les industries d’inertie
    Au Nigeria, les milieux d’affaires et de l’industrie lancent un cri d’alarme: si les ports ne sont pas rapidement désengorgés, certaines activités économiques vont cesser par manque de matières premières et de pièces de rechange. La situation est des plus critiques. Certaines entreprises ne disposent plus que de deux semaines de stocks. Jamais au cours des vingt dernières années, les ports du pays n’avaient connu de tels engorgements.
  • 1999 a été une année charnière pour le port d’Ostende
    Une légère hausse de l’emploi, de la valeur ajoutée et du volume d’investissement et une contribution quelque peu inférieure au Trésor. Ainsi, nous pouvons résumer l’évolution économique du port d’Ostende en 1999 à l’aide des chiffres que la Banque nationale de Belgique a publiés dans son rapport sur l’importance du quatrième port maritime flamand. Le rapport met toutefois principalement l’accent sur le fait que les premiers signes du rétablissement se sont manifestés au cours de cette année.
  • Le Havre part à la conquête de l’Est français
    Le Havre fait le forcing dans l’Est de la France. Il s’agit, pour les Havrais, de récupérer une partie du potentiel de trafic containérisable de cette région. L’Alsace, à elle seule, représente sur base annuelle quelque 100.000 TEU. Lors d’un récent passage à Strasbourg, une forte délégation havraise a clairement affiché les intentions du port normand. Grâce à la navette “Le Havre Shuttle” (LHS), qui désormais gagne Strasbourg en direct sans passer par le point nodal de Villeneuve, les Havrais espèrent gagner des parts de marché. Et cela en prenant une partie de leurs trafics à la voie d’eau.
