TNT Freight Management Wins Global Prestigious Assignment by Electrolux

Published by:

TNT Freight Management has secured a large-scale global contract with Electrolux Global Logistics. Having had a cooperation within the Nordic countries, TNT will now handle all air-freight for Electrolux, from Asia to Europe, within Asia and from Europe to the rest of the world.

“To us this is obviously a very important business deal, not only for the Swedish organisation but for the entire Group,” says Mr. Jeff Hoogesteger, Managing Director of TNT Freight Management.

Previously the cooperation with Electrolux was limited to air-freight and some sea-freight to and from Sweden and a number of countries. Now TNT will handle all air-freight from Asia, Australia and Japan to Europe, and all air-freight from Europe to the rest of the world.  Also TNT will be responsible for all Electrolux´ air-freight within Asia and within Australia, except for shipments from Asia to Australia.

“Our knowledge of the structure and business of Electrolux has been to our advantage in the procurement process,” says Kenneth Dahlgren, Global Account Manager at TNT Freight Management. “We are also well advanced in e-services and with our ‘Global Control Tower’ in Europe. Furthermore we have the internal processes required to implement such a complex, global system as this. Now we must make it operational within 90 days,” Dahlgren continues.

“TNT Freight Management is a well renowned operator in the international air-freight market,” says Mr. Björn Vang Jensen, Vice President, Intercontinental Freight and Logistics Services, Electrolux.  “We are impressed by their structured and disciplined attitude and their willingness to work with Electrolux to arrive at a competitive and cost-efficient solution according to our requirements. We look forward to working with TNT Freight Management on the implementation and hopefully in a future expansion of the partnership”, Mr. Björn Vang Jensen says.

Geodis: 2006 half-year results

Published by:

• Geodis group operating profit increased by nearly 20%, reaching €53.1 million
• Net debt was reduced by €67.5 million relative to that of 30 June 2005
The Board of Directors of Geodis held a meeting on 29 August 2006 chaired by Pierre Blayau for the closing of the financial accounts of the first half of 2006.

1. 2006 first-half revenue increased 7.3% over revenue for the prior-year period as a result of the continued strong growth of international trade flows and of operations in Asia and Eastern Europe. Despite an unfavourable business calendar—two fewer business days—revenue in France increased 5.5% (on a like-for-like basis) as a result of strong commercial activity.

2. The Geodis group’s operating profit rose 19.1% to 2.8% of revenue. In Europe the operating profit reached breakeven as a result of a significant reduction of losses in Italy and the United Kingdom. In France, excluding non-recurring factors such as the beginning of recovery of VAT on tolls and capital gains on disposals, operating margin remained stable as a percentage of revenue.

3. After a tax charge of €21.6 million, net income was €21.3 million, versus €13.5 million in the first half of 2005.

4. Net financial indebtedness at 30 June 2006 was €212.4 million, versus €246.2 million at the end of December 2005 and €279.9 million at the end of June 2005. This reduction is primarily due to the rapid application of new regulations reducing the maximum number of days allowed for the payment of invoices in the French trucking industry as of the beginning of 2006. This has enabled Geodis to post a further improvement in its gearing ratio (net debt/equity): 0.68 at the end of June 2006, versus 0.81 at the end of December 2005 and 1.00 at the end of June 2005.

5. Growth in the second half will occur in a less favourable comparative context, considering the results achieved in the second half of 2005. Nevertheless, given current economic conditions and the performance of the first half of the year, Geodis should once again deliver increased operating profits in the second half.

DPD Polska teaches you how to wisely and responsibly use e-commerce tools

Published by:

Warsaw, 9 July 2012 – Due to the constantly growing internet e-commerce sector, DPD Polska in cooperation with is.tv (http://istv.pl/) is continuing its “I pay I don’t pay” series of educational programs about the e-commerce market.

The DPD Polska and is.tv joint project (formerly Webshake.tv) “I pay I don’t pay” has been functioning since April 2011. The demand for knowledge about e-commerce has resulted in the recording of a second series of 10 episodes of “I pay I don’t pay”, which begins with an episode on mobile technologies in purchasing, sales and logistics. In further episodes, we talk about group purchasing, buying food from internet food shops, new developments in payment for purchases in-store and online and what product range to choose when starting an online shop and how these goods can be stored and transported.

“We are pleased that we have been able to establish a lasting and fruitful cooperation with is.tv Internet television,” says Aneta Gasparska, Spokesperson/Director of Marketing at DPD Polska. “We are proud of the fact that the “I pay I don’t pay” series was met with so much interest among Internet users, both from those interested in developing their online business, as well as those who shop on the internet,” she adds.

Advice for both online shoppers and sellers can be found in the series. The series is a response to the clear need for public education, as people are often not able to keep up with the high pace of development of new technologies. Viewers of the first series were able to learn about how couriers work and the process of delivering to addresses. Thanks to this educational project, Internet users can find out about the opportunities and pitfalls associated with e-commerce from the perspective of both the customer and the owner of an online store. Viewers can also learn what rights and obligations Internet users have and what to pay attention to when starting an online business.

“In the virtual world there are many dangers lurking. “The program aims to identify ways to avoid unpleasant surprises and skilfully use e-commerce tools.” says Maciej Glowacki, Director of Sales and Marketing at DPD Polska. “We hope that in this light and friendly way, we will contribute to increased knowledge of Internet users, who are increasingly eager to use new tools and increasingly see the Internet as an opportunity to develop their own business.”

Subsequent episodes of the series are published once a week on the bezgranicznie.pl platform at http://bezgranicznie.pl/multimedia/1

Viewers of “I pay I don’t pay” can also take part in a competition in which they have a chance to win one of five Samsung Galaxy Tabs funded by DPD Polska! Details in subsequent episodes.
