  • P&O Nedlloyd accélère les rationalisations pour contrer la baisse des frets
    Un millier d’emplois, sur un total de 7.200, disparaîtront cette année chez P&O Nedlloyd. La réduction des effectifs annoncée hier concerne uniquement les activités à terre. Un nombre non détérminé de licenciements aura également lieu du côté du personnel navigant. La réduction des effectifs sera en outre poursuivie en 2003 et certaines activités seront transférées vers des pays à bas salaires, ont annoncé jeudi matin Haddo Meijer, le président du groupe Nedlloyd et du comité exécutif de P&O Nedlloyd, et Robert Woods, le group managing director de P&O Nedlloyd, lors d’une conférence de presse à Rotterdam. L’opération de rationalisation était déjà prévue mais sera désormais accélérée, a déclaré Woods.
  • FM Logistic n’est plus à vendre
    Le groupe de transport routier, d’entreposage et de logistique à valeur ajoutée FM Logistic (connu jusqu’il y a quelques années sous le nom de Faure & Machet) n’est plus à la recherche d’un repreneur. Il y a deux ans environ, il avait annoncé vouloir “s’adosser à un partenaire international” afin d’assurer sa pérennité. Cette recherche a été infructueuse. Les responsables de l’entreprise se sont au contraire rendus compte que l’indépendance offrait les meilleures perspectives d’avenir. Le groupe estime en effet que son patrimoine immobilier, constitué au cours des vingt dernières années, lui donne les bases capitalistiques suffisantes pour poursuivre sa croissance, qui devrait continuer à être principalement interne. Après une forte expansion dans les pays de l’Est au cours des sept dernières années - qui l’a mené jusqu’à Vladivostok! - le regard se porte à nouveau sur le marché logistique ouest-européen. La Belgique figure en bonne place dans les axes de développement.
  • Gefco a racheté la participation de KN dans le réseau de messagerie en Allemagne
    Le groupe français de transport et de logistique Gefco, qui avait pris le contrôle du réseau de messagerie de Kühne & Nagel en Allemagne à la fin de 1999, détient désormais la totalité des actions, nous a déclaré Christian Zbylut, directeur général “Réseau” de Gefco. La transaction date du 1er janvier dernier, mais n’avait pas encore été rendue publique.
  • Le terminal TRW de Bierset sera opérationnel le 15 juin prochain
    La décision est enfin tombée: le terminal intermodal de la zone logistique de Bierset, près de Liège, sera opérationnel le 15 juin prochain. Il sera géré par une société mixte TRW-IFB et sera relié au Cortax à Schaerbeek, de sorte que toutes les liaisons de TRW avec l’Italie, la France et l’Espagne seront proposées. Cest ce que nous a déclaré Jean-Luc Mélard, directeur général de TRW, en marge de la SITL. Il nous a également annoncé que plusieurs autres projets sont à l’étude, dont un deuxième train sur l’Espagne par la façade méditerranéenne, et un hub à Lyon. TRW, manifestement, a le vent en poupe, stimulé non seulement par un retour aux bénéfices, mais également par une croissance - atypique pour le secteur - à deux chiffres.
