DHL accélère la connectivité de la Libye grâce à des liens logistiques internationaux

- DHL Global Forwarding ouvre son premier bureau à Tripoli en vue de fournir des services de fret international et de transport intérieur et international par camion

TRIPOLI, Libye, 30 novembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DHL Global Forwarding, spécialiste du fret aérien et maritime du groupe Deutsche Post DHL, a ouvert son premier bureau en Libye tandis qu'une reprise plus rapide que prévue de la production de pétrole et d'hydrocarbures marque le début d'une nouvelle ère de croissance économique (Note 1). En plus du réseau mondial de DHL, DHL Global Forwarding offrira aux clients des secteurs clés – à savoir le pétrole et l'énergie, la construction, les télécommunications et les produits pharmaceutiques – l'accès à des services de niveau international comme la prise en charge des documents, le dédouanement et l'entreposage, le fret aérien et maritime, ainsi que le transport intérieur et international par camion.

Thomas Nieszner, PDG de DHL Global Forwarding pour l'Europe, le Moyen-Orient et l'Afrique, a déclaré : « Pays riche en pétrole, la Libye est en train de s'ouvrir aux investisseurs du monde entier afin de contribuer à son développement. Après la révolution, la reprise de la production pétrolière du pays a progressé plus rapidement que prévu. La production pour 2012 a atteint presque 90 % des niveaux enregistrés avant les conflits et devrait à nouveau les égaler en 2013. (Note 2) Cela encourage un accroissement des dépenses publiques dans la reconstruction de la nation ainsi que dans sa croissance économique globale, des domaines qui exigent tous deux un soutien logistique comme celui que DHL est la mieux équipée pour fournir. »

Exportateur de pétrole majeur comptant une population de 6,5 millions d'habitants et un PIB par habitant de 5 510 USD en 2011 (Note 3), la production pétrolière de la Libye est passée d'une moyenne de 166 000 barils par jour en 2011 à 1,52 millions de barils par jour pour 2012. La croissance du PIB réel pour 2012 devrait s'élever à 122 % – après une contraction de 60 % en 2011 – et rester forte à court terme à 17 % en 2013. Quant à la croissance du PIB de 2014 à 2017 (Note 4), elle devrait atteindre en moyenne 7 %.

À proximité du centre d'affaires de Tripoli, DHL Global Forwarding ouvre ses portes avec un effectif de six employés. Cette équipe répondra aux besoins de clients situés dans tous les principaux territoires et provinces du pays, notamment à Benghazi, Misurata, Syrte et Sebha, opérant par l'intermédiaire de trois grands ports – Tripoli, Khoms et Benghazi – et des deux principaux aéroports libyens de Tripoli et Benina. Globalement, DHL Global Forwarding est prête à mettre ses ressources à disposition en vue de contribuer au soutien de la croissance de la Libye, tandis que le développement des activités et du portefeuille de services de DHL au Moyen-Orient et en Afrique du Nord deviendra une priorité pour l'entreprise au cours des prochaines années.

Claudio Scandella, PDG de DHL Global Forwarding pour le Moyen-Orient, l'Afrique du Nord et la Turquie, a ajouté : « Stratégiquement située sur la côte nord-africaine et possédant d'importantes réserves pétrolières, la Libye attire actuellement des entreprises internationales majeures dans de nombreux domaines et assiste à la relance de sociétés locales robustes. L'ouverture de notre bureau libyen démontre l'engagement de DHL à l'égard du potentiel que nous envisageons sur ce continent. Le commerce triangulaire entre l'Afrique, le Moyen-Orient et l'Asie façonnera l'avenir du commerce à l'échelle mondiale, tandis que l'investissement continu de DHL dans les ressources humaines et les processus garantit aux entreprises – aussi bien locales qu'internationales – un accès à des opérations de logistique de classe mondiale dans l'ensemble de cette région. »

Hazem Ibrahim, directeur national de DHL Global Forwarding en Libye, a conclu : « Suite à la formation du nouveau gouvernement libyen, nous pensons que c'est le moment idéal pour accroître notre présence et offrir notre soutien logistique aux partenaires mondiaux et aux entreprises locales de la Libye. Les produits et services proposés par DHL Global Forwarding s'étendent des opérations de logistique uniformisées aux solutions de transport multimodales et aux projets industriels hautement individualisés, des éléments capitaux qui permettront à la Libye de soutenir plus efficacement sa reprise, de maintenir sa stabilité et de gagner en confiance. »

Bien qu'il s'agisse du premier bureau de DHL Global Forwarding en Libye, DHL est présente dans ce pays depuis 1989 par l'intermédiaire de sa division Express.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds.

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance.
