  • La Cour européenne rejette le recours d’UPS contre Deutsche Post
    UPS a perdu une importante manche dans son offensive juridique contre l’incursion de groupes bénéficiant d’un monopole postal sur le marché du colis express et de la logistique. “Le fait que Deutsche Post dispose de fonds afin de réaliser l’acquisition des actions de DHL, n’implique pas l’existence d’un comportement abusif sur le marché réservé”, dit en effet le Tribunal européen de première instance dans un arrêt rendu mercredi à Luxembourg dans l’affaire opposant UPS Europe à la Commission européenne (qui était soutenue par Deutsche Post).
  • Ahlers Logistics poursuit le développement de son réseau mondial
    Ces dernières années, le groupe belge Ahlers s’est distingué en procédant à une importante diversification de ses activités. Si la fonction d’agence maritime reste importante, elle s’inscrit désormais dans un contexte beaucoup plus vaste, celui des prestations logistiques intégrées à une échelle mondiale, activités devenues dominantes et qui font toujours l’objet de nouveaux développements. L’exercice 2001/2002 témoigne de l’esprit d’entreprise du groupe, dont le chiffre devrait se situer à 125 millions d’EUR, tandis que la valeur ajoutée a progressé de 14%. L’exercice 2002/2003 sera marqué par la mise en route d’un programme d’investissements portant sur 22 mio. d’EUR à réaliser en Flandre et dans la CEI. Christian Leysen, l’administrateur délégué du groupe, et ses proches collaborateurs Luc Maton, directeur général, et Martina Jung, CEO, qui faisaient jeudi dernier le point avec la presse à leur QG anversois, avaient donc toutes les raisons d’être satisfaits.
  • Normes de Kyoto: BASF Anvers sonne l’alarme
    Lors de la présentation des chiffres annuels, l’administrateur délégué de BASF Anvers, Antoon Dieusaert, n’a pas caché son inquiétude au sujet des conséquences des normes de Kyoto pour le site anversois et l’industrie chimique belge en générale. “Nous avons déjà atteint les normes de Kyoto, mais si le gouvernement applique les normes d’une manière linéaire, notre avenir sera compromis”, a-t-il dit. BASF Anvers n’a pas échappé au ralentissement de la croissance économique mondiale et les résultats en témoignent: le chiffre d’affaires a régressé de 8,9%, le résultat d’exploitation de 31,9% et le bénéfice net de 76,4%.
  • Geodis a pris le contrôle de Geodis Overseas Polytra
    Dans le cadre de la politique de restructuration que mène sa nouvelle direction, le groupe logistique français Geodis, qui est contrôlé par la SNCF, manifeste apparemment la volonté de contrôler l’ensemble de ses activités. Cette politique vient de se traduire en Belgique, où le groupe est représenté par Geodis Vitesse, par la reprise de la participation de 50% que détenait la société Polytra dans la joint-venture Geodis Overseas Polytra à Anvers. D’après les informations dont nous disposons, le partenaire anversois n’était guère désireux de se dégager d’une entreprise qui donnait d’excellents résultats, mais a finalement cédé aux aspirations de l’autre partie. Polytra a pu réaliser ainsi une plus-value.
