Press release from: Analytiqa

This week's Logistics Bulletin reports on news that the European Commission has announced a vast action plan to ease international freight traffic in Europe, by opening up priority rail corridors and cutting red tape for ships moving between EU ports. Experts predict that freight transport will increase by half in Europe by 2020 compared to 2000 levels, and Brussels has decided to take steps to streamline procedures so that the EU economy can better take advantage. The idea is to create international maritime and rail transport corridors dedicated to freight and cargo traffic.

Also in the news this week, Panalpina has reported that a US-based equity fund has built a 5.2% stake in the Company, whilst among contract wins was a ten-year deal for Kuehne + Nagel with drinks manufacturer Britvic in the UK. Elsewhere, the automotive sector is making headlines this week, with developments at Volkswagen, Hyundai, Continental and Michelin. In the retail sector, Ocado, Comet, X5 Retail, Amazon, Chico's and The Sultan Centre are reporting supply chain developments in Europe, the US and the Middle East.

15 October - In compliance with the Federal Act on Stock Exchanges and Securities Trading, Viking Global Investors LP and Viking Global Performance LLC as managers to the funds have notified Panalpina that the funds Viking Global Equities LP, Viking Global Equities II LP and VGE III Portfolio jointly hold 5.2% of the share capital, of Panalpina World Transport (Holding) Ltd.
