INVESTMENT:
MATERIAL / LOGISTICS


Given the increase in our logistics needs & the concentration of goods on the same services and same vessels, we made the decision to equip ourselves with a BoxLoader allowing containers to be heavy handled and grounded, therefore giving access to all types of platforms.

We also remain flexible as a response to the reduction in free time provided by shipping lines.
This specific investment will be available to our teams by the last quarter of 2020.

MARITIME: Sharp increase in freight rates on the transpacific lines and in general on all trades with blank-sailing announced in the following months

Europeans are no longer popular !
Now that freight is approaching $5,000 on the transpacific, all shipping lines have their eyes fixated on this line with average transit time of 15 days (less than 30 return days, when it takes more than 40 to reach Shanghai from Europe).
They even plan to return empty boxes from Europe to meet the demand for equipment on the trans pacific.

New challenges to face !
In view of the behavior of the shipping lines, the Chinese Ministry of Transport has sent letters to the main shipping lines asking for an explanation in the recent spike in rates and decrease in available space.
The same goes for CLECAT , (European Association for Forwarding, Transport, Logistics and Customs Services) which asked that Europe investigate shipping companies with regard to this type of practice (increase in rates, reduction in space).

AIR: With this sector being the most affected by current event, the outlook remains unclear despite the resumption of services on a few rare lines. We therefore, like many companies, still resort to partial unemployment.

It has made sense to have rigorous sanitary standards in place at TMT. Employees remain attentive to their health and that of others and the flexibility of our processes have enabled their pursuit of dense activity.

We also announced in the previous Newsletter the implementation of Microsoft Teams which is now operational and helping facilitate the communication between customers, partners and employees.

Precautions require us to continue telecommuting, rotating among teams whose positions allows.
