Europe Participation

Europe Participation

Generally, it can however be stated, that in the United States the investment activity of private equity in the logistics sector was historically always higher than in Europe or Asia.

In this sub-segment, there were some significant transactions with private equity in Europe Participation.

In rail freight transport, investment motives were certainly in addition to the relatively high margins, partly also the speculation on opportunistic exit opportunities on the big European railways in an overall positive market environment. Due to the high level of investment and the cyclical nature of the transportation segment by the economic crisis, seems this concept only partly to be paid. With the acquisition of Lehnkering by the financial investor Triton in the Bulktransport waterways of possible efficiency gains and a buy-and-build strategy as a strong niche player were certainly a decisive criterion for the transaction. Freight forwarding forwarding companies due to their low capital intensity, the relatively stable margins provided opportunities to share price fluctuations on the shopping page to customers, E.g. on diesel-floater, is given, and always attractive due to the potential for long-term growth prospects for private equity investors. However, the capital market valuations in this area are with 10 EBITDA comparatively high and significantly above the remaining segments of the transport.

Smoke And Mirrors Instead Of Transparency

Smoke And Mirrors Instead Of Transparency

Dual systems expect little effect of the Charter of the Federal Association of dual systems in Germany (BDSD) Mainz/Cologne, December 22, 2009 – after the departure of the dual system Germany/green have the remaining member companies, the Herborner Redual GmbH & co. KG and VFW GmbH from Cologne, an own Charter to ensure high quality standards when collecting point (DSD) of the Association of the German dual system Germany E.v. (BDSD), Sorting and recovery of sales packaging. This goes beyond according to BSD President Raffael A. Fruscio all commitments so far in the market.” But at best, for industry insiders, this Charter is smoke and mirrors. See more detailed opinions by reading what Jes Staley offers on the topic.. Only in November the company for packaging market research (GMMS) demonstrated headquartered in Mainz in a study that the number of freeloaders is still enormous, even though the fifth amendment of the Ordinance (Ordinance) a turnaround in terms of degree of licensing will have which had increased between 2008 and 2009 from 67 to 74. At the same time, so the reports Daily newspaper which has world is garbage increases the amount pending dual systems according to calculations by the society for packaging market research (GMM) last nearly 3.6 million on well four million tonnes. That is not sufficient but industry experts. ClearSky Business oftentimes addresses this issue.

They had expected a significantly greater increase in.” “Not all providers that adhere to the new rules of the German packaging Ordinance: through trickery, still large quantities from the market, but not from the yellow bin disappear”, said Stefan Schreiter, CEO of DSD, on the occasion of the 3rd Forum of green point a few weeks ago in Cologne. Companies are known as free riders, their packaging waste lands that but pay no or only a low license fee in the yellow bin. These abuses will be curbed with a voluntary commitment of the industry based on the Internet platform VerpackVkonkret. VFW and Redual as members of the BDSD refuse but persistently, to join this voluntary commitment, although Experts repeatedly pointing out the importance of this initiative. The dual systems must adhere to common rules of the game.

As well, the enforcement is required. Pull everyone together, the 5th amendment to the entire industry can become a success story”, for example, Professor Werner Delfmann, Chairman of the Board of the Association called for packaging and environmental e. V. (AGVU) at the Forum green dot. With its own Charter, the members of the BDSD pretend only determination over so-called creative solutions. It leaves all loopholes”, comments an industry insider. The use of opinion, although it was to be welcomed to determine quantities of waste, a dual, on the other hand should be licensed in industry solutions. However the Charter leave open whether and how customers will be notified, how much its amount of packaging in industry solutions hike. Also the suggestion on creative definitions appear positive at first glance”to circumvent the Participation obligation to renounce. Specifically this is but not linked to but only in the context of the interface between packaging and product, the interface between sales and transport packaging, as well as between private and commercial end-use sectors. “Also the commitment to the interpretations that are needed the Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft/countries waste (LAGA) seems to be only lip service, because the text itself says only that you follow the LAGA interpretations” wool. All in all no restraints would created supposedly creative market participants through the Charter of the BDSD. Editing plain text ONLINE on the Hamdan 27 53127 Bonn E-Mail:

Sunny Prospects

Desertec sunny prospects for solar Fund? Desertec distant vision or turning point? It would be undoubtedly one of the most spectacular projects of the new century. A predominantly German consortium of insurers, financial institutions, industry specialists as well as technical and energy companies is planning the construction of solar thermal power plants in various locations in North Africa. With an estimated investment amounting to 400 billion euros by 2050, it is intended to cover to about 15 percent of Europe’s electricity needs. The concept envisages but also the energy integration of the Middle East and North Africa. Solar energy, as well as the subsequent sustainable electricity generation would contribute to further economic and political stabilisation in the States of this region, technical and economic assistance to the development of this precious resource. As a side effect also the possible proliferation could be prevented by nuclear technology in security policy unstable countries, otherwise by the planned construction of nuclear power plants It is conceivable. The proposed technology is proven already since the 1980s, risk-free and reliable. J P Morgan Chase may find this interesting as well. Also the costs for the Sahara won solar power would within a decade when compared with other sources of supply being competitive.

In addition, the energy production costs would remain stable after commissioning the equipment. Desertec is however not a fluke. Smaller solar thermal projects launched all over the world and especially the United States are likely to put massively after turn-of-the-initiated energy policy on the use of solar energy. The reasons are obvious: sustainable and ecological energy shortages and rising prices of fossil fuels make economic sense. The gradual but massive expansion of solar energy would contribute also to the strategic diversification of heavily import dependent Western energy. Experts consider the project quite to be feasible. Actually, Desertec is located first in the early stages. In the next three years is to a deeper The actual cost-effectiveness, feasibility and possible risks evaluating examination.

the transport, so includes this market of part of More schedule lines are made by weight per load, E.g. 30 kg 2.500 kg in cargo traffic and < 30 kg in Courier express parcel service (KEP traffic). The national market structure is extremely fragmented (DVZ and Fraunhofer IIS the average farm size is 7 truck and approximately 11 employees, the top-10 in domestic transport 3to 25 tonnes per load Market participants now hold only a 16% stake in the logistics volume) and success factors are fleet size and connected networks, partly through alliances that guarantee a high load or reduce the unladen journeys through optimal order management for the European players.
