  • TCT Willebroek bientôt une filiale à part entière d’ECT?
    Le processus de concentration qui se manifeste depuis quelque temps dans le transport de containers à l’échelle planétaire, se fait également sentir dans le segment du transport terrestre. Dans le secteur de la navigation fluviale containérisée en Europe de l’Ouest, quelques glissements notables ont déjà eu lieu parmi les opérateurs en Europe occidentale. Une même tendance semble se dessiner aujourd’hui au niveau des terminaux fluviaux.
  • Frans Maas acquiert GT-Trans en Finlande
    Le groupe néerlandais de groupage/expédition et de logistique Frans Maas vient d’annoncer une extension de son réseau aux extrémités de l’Europe. Il vient en effet de procéder à l’acquisition d’une société d’expédition en Finlande, GT-Trans, et de créer sa propre société en Turquie. Cette dernière servira dans un premier temps de relais dans le réseau pan-européen de transport, mais devra également devenir active dans la logistique, nous a annoncé le président de l’entreprise, Henk Benjamins.
  • LaLine ajoute l’escale de Zeebrugge à celle d’Anvers

  • Mory Group s’attend à une forte hausse du chiffre d’affaires en 2001
    Le groupe français de transports et de logistique Mory a vu son chiffre d’affaires progresser de 13% à 610 millions d’EUR (4,07 mia. de FRF) en 2000, mais sa rentabilité a souffert de la hausse du diesel et des 35 heures. La logistique a progressé de manière très prononcée, de sorte que l’activité traditionnelle, la messagerie, ne représente plus désormais que 50% du chiffre d’affaires. Cela est conforme à la politique du groupe, dont la palette de services s’est élargie ces dernières années. Pour cette raison, le groupe présidé par Alain Bréau a décidé d’adopter une nouvelle appellation commerciale, à savoir “Mory Group”.
