DUNKERQUE: February 29, 2016. Gérard Mulliez, founder of the Auchan superstore chain, and Rodolphe Saadé, CMA CGM Group vice chairman, have pledged their support for Dunkerque as part of the Greater Nor Pas de Calais Picardie economic region.

A former student of the Ecole Notre Dame des Dunes in Dunkirk, Mulliez reiterated his commitment to his region and its businesses: "The Port of Dunkirk has considerable advantages, starting with its geography, its attractive cost and its capacity to re-balance traffic flows by developing our exports so that ships do not sail empty. Ecology must also remain a concern in maritime transport, pending the return of sailing ships as a result of current technological advances," he said.

Saadé, who met Mulliez aboard CMA CGM's Vasco de Gama containership during its regular port call, added: "This visit shows that French businesses, working together, have a major role to play in the world economy. It is by pooling the strengths of the retail sector such as the Mulliez family brands, those of a shipping leader such as CMA CGM, and the quality of French infrastructures such as those of Dunkirk, that we will play our part in boosting the French economy."


Deutsche Bahn changes a name

New gateway to the Caucasus

TBILISI, Georgia: March 01, 2016. F.S. Mackenzie Group (FSM) – the UK and Russia member of the FPS Group network of independent forwarders and NVOCCs – has opened a new office in Tbilisi, Georgia, to act as gateway for imports to the Caucasus region.

The new FSM Tbilisi operation is supporting the launch of weekly inbound LCL services from a number of key ports in Asia, Europe and the USA, and will provide direct local control over its operations that were previously managed through its Ukraine base. All containers are unloaded at the company's container freight station in Tbilisi, which then provides daily delivery throughout Georgia, and weekly transit services to Yerevan, Armenia and Baku, Azerbaijan.

In 2012 FSM launched regular LCL services to Tbilisi, Yerevan and Baku via the Black Sea ports of Poti and Batumi in Georgia and to Odessa, Ukraine. In addition to rail connections to Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, Georgia is also an important gateway and transit point for neighboring Azerbaijan and Armenia.
