  • Eurogate cherche toujours un point d’appui au Benelux
    Le groupe Eurogate, numéro trois mondial (mais numéro un européen) dans le secteur de la manutention de containers (parmi les exploitants de terminaux indépendants), continue à étudier la possibilité de s’implanter sur le marché du Benelux. Le groupe, né de la joint-venture à 50/50 entre l’opérateur hambourgeois Eurokai et son concurrent brêmois BLG, a traité l’année dernière un trafic global de 7,66 millions de TEU, en hausse de 20,5% par rapport à l’exercice précédent (1999 a été la première année d’activité d’Eurogate). Mais sous l’effet de la concurrence accrue et de son impact sur les tarifs, le chiffre d’affaires n’a progressé “que” de 11,6% (de 580,89 à 648,50 millions de DEM) et le bénéfice net de 4,4% (de 40,22 à 41,99 mio. de DEM). Exprimé en part du chiffre d’affaires, ce bénéfice net a reculé de 6,9% à 6,5%.
