News / East Europe’s logistics players growing fast, but need infrastructure support

first_img© Alexey Novikov By Alexander Whiteman 27/11/2017 Eastern Europe’s logistics sector has recorded stellar growth rates over the last year, but more is needed to challenge the west’s market dominance and mitigate looming less-than-favourable conditions, according to new research from Transport Intelligence.The analyst’s Leading European Transport and Logistics Markets report shows particularly strong contract logistics activity, with the former Soviet bloc countries seeing almost 5% growth last year.Sea freight operations also fared well, with Serbia up 10.6%, Romania (+9.4%) and Hungary (+9.7%) growing almost twice as fast as the west’s strongest market, Belgium (up 5.7%).The other mature markets of Western Europe recorded average contract logistics growth of just 1.8% over the same period, with Ti citing a weakened consumer/retail and manufacturing industries.“The transition to omnichannel retailing presents new challenges to retailers in highly formalised markets,” the report claims. “Those 3PLs that can adapt to provide solutions in omnichannel retailing will see themselves gaining an advantage on their rivals.”However, with Western Europe accounting for more than 90% of contract logistics activity – Germany dominating – the eastern countries have a lot of work on their hands to increase market share.In particular, Ti says, east European countries would need to address poor infrastructure, political corruption, lack of competitiveness, staff shortages and – in Romania’s case – low productivity.On Romania, the report claims: “Shortage of staff is a significant issue for the logistics sector, with increasing emigration exacerbating the situation in the labour market.“Alongside further investment in roads, which remains of the highest importance for the logistics industry, the port of Constanta and the country’s railway network are also of strategic importance.”Despite these concerns, Ti expects strong annual growth rates across Romania’s logistics business, with the value of its road freight sector anticipated to grow by almost €1bn by 2020. This bodes well for a country that could be caught up in less-than-favourable conditions facing the wider European economies over the next five years.“Looking ahead, the IMF expects real GDP growth rates in each year from 2018 to 2022 to be between 2.1% and 1.6%, with growth gradually slowing down over the period,” it says.“Over the next five years, general market conditions are expected to be less favourable for logistics providers, although one must note the story is different for each particular logistics market.”last_img read more

TSX posts slight gain to end November

first_img Canada’s main stock index closed the month on a slightly positive note Friday even though the energy sector was hit by a 22% drop in crude oil prices in November, the worst month in more than a decade.Despite weaker Canadian growth in third-quarter economic activity and consumer spending, and a focus on U.S. President Donald Trump’s weekend meeting with China’s Xi Jinping, oil again took centre stage. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Keywords Marketwatch The January crude contract lost 52¢ to US$50.93 per barrel, down from $65.31 at the start of the month. It has fallen by more than 30% from US$73.25 at the start of October.“It’s quite a big drop,” says Kevin Headland, senior investment Strategist at Manulife Investments. “Expectations were that when it hit $75 that it was going to continue to climb and I think that was probably an overestimation of the actual conditions of supply-demand fundamentals.”While November’s price decrease was steep, it was affected by the timing of oversupply conditions amid unexpected waivers on Iranian sanctions and a slowdown in global economic growth, he said.Uncertainty remains heading into next week’s OPEC meeting when some expect Saudi Arabia to increase production to get some supply balance back into the market.That should allow oil prices to bounce back, but not to $75 a barrel, Headland said in an interview.“I think with a slow economic growth environment I don’t see how it can unless you get undersupply conditions and I don’t think that’s going to happen either with shale pumping out at record levels.”The energy sector was the worst performer on the day, losing almost 1%in Toronto.

The S&P 500 index was up 22.23 points at 2,759.99, while the Nasdaq composite was up 57.45 points at 7,330.54.The Canadian dollar traded at an average of US75.18¢ US compared with an average of US75.33¢ US on Thursday.The January natural gas contract was down US3.4¢ US$4.61 per mmBTU.The February gold contract was down US$4.40 at US$1,226 an ounce and the March copper contract was down 0.2 of a cent at US$2.79 a pound.November has traditionally marked a recovery from October’s market weakness, but a strong recovery failed to materialize even though markets got a lift this week after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell suggested the central bank is almost done raising interest rates.The TSX rose just 1% on the month and was off 5.4% from the end of September.Headland said there wasn’t enough good news coming out of the end of the earnings season to give it a bump up and the trade war issue still looms.But he remains hopeful about December because the underlining fundamentals of U.S. companies remain strong and any positive signs from the weekend G20 summit could help.“I don’t think it’ll take much positive news coming out of this weekend to allow the markets to rally at the end of the year.” S&P/TSX composite hits highest close since March on strength of financials sector Toronto stock market dips on weakness in the energy and financials sectors Ross Marowits TSX gets lift from financials, U.S. markets rise to highest since March stock market pricing abstract leungchopan/123RF Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitterlast_img read more

Soaring bond yields lift DB pension solvency to highest level in 20 years

first_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Mature single women are wealthier than mature single men, StatsCan finds Rising bond yields helped lift Canadian defined benefit (DB) pension plans to their highest funded positions in more than 20 years, according to a report from Mercer.The latest Mercer Pension Health Index found that the average solvency ratio for DB plans reached 124% at the end of the first quarter, up from 114% in Q4 2020, and the highest level since the index’s inception in 1999. increasing stacked red cubes with percentage symbol and blue arrow showing upward direction andreypopov/123RF Keywords Pensions Related news The median solvency ratio was 104% in Q1, up from 96% in Q4 2020.Although many plans experienced negative returns in Q1, their funded positions improved due to bond yields increasing by “a remarkable” 77 basis points during the quarter, Mercer noted. Approximately 66% of Mercer’s DB clients are now in a solvency surplus.“In March 2020, as markets were experiencing a gut-wrenching freefall, nobody would believe that pension plans would be breaking funded position records only a year later,” Ben Ukonga, principal in Mercer’s financial strategy group, said in a statement.While a gradually improving global economy is cause for optimism, Mercer noted that increased inflation expectations could hamper the economic recovery, equities markets returns and the ability of governments, corporations and individuals to service their debts.“The improved positions we now see could be short lived,” Ukonga said. “Now is the time for plan sponsors to revisit their risk preferences (or tolerances) and take appropriate actions.”Well-funded plans should consider taking defensive positions, while open plans and plans with long time horizons should remain invested in growth assets, the report suggested.

Academic Futures: Notes from a great conversation, Feb. 7 edition

Building on our internal campus conversations and upon the thoughts and deliberations of its members, the committee is now looking outward, as well. For Academic Futures to be truly focused on “what’s next” for our campus, it is critical the committee’s work is informed by all the expertise we can find—from campus thought leaders to higher education research to model programs that other universities have developed and successfully implemented. We will be drawing upon content experts here at CU Boulder in areas such as graduate education, undergraduate research and student advising to support the committee in its work, taking advantage of the world-class research and many years of experience the campus has assembled to ensure our visions can be harnessed into exciting new realities.We are also drawing upon the energy and talents of graduate and undergraduate students to help us assemble and focus the best thinking outside the university, found in scholarly research as well as popular articles, essays and op-eds. We are also examining documented records of achievement at other universities to give us yardsticks by which to measure our visions.The research is being organized around key issues and questions. For example, what could service/experiential learning look like at CU Boulder? What is the potential for our engaging globally? How do we build on our successes to create universal undergraduate research opportunities for CU students?By integrating all of these conversations, research and models, we will chart a path for CU Boulder that is uniquely ours—one that fits our values, draws upon the best of what we are, who we are, and on what we can find within our community and outside of it. Jeff Cox, Vice Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor for Faculty Affairs Convener of the Academic Futures Campus ConversationEmily CoBabe-Ammann, Director of Strategic Projects for the Research & Innovation Office Facilitator of the Academic Futures Campus ConversationCategories:Academic FuturesStrategic InitiativesCampus Communitylast_img read more

Tourism Ministry Plans Social Security Net for Workers

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Tourism is moving to improve the long term socio-economic environment within the tourism industry, through introduction of a retirement plan and pension scheme for workers within the industry.The first of three planned public education fora, aimed at increasing awareness among tourism industry employers and employees, about pensions and retirement planning, was staged by the Tourism Ministry at the Iberostar Hotel, in Lilliput, St. James, on Wednesday (May 19).Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, in addressing the forum, explained that the implementation of a social security net for workers within the industry has been a policy position within the government and his Ministry.He said that “with all the best will in the world,” the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) does not have the capacity to supply the kind of social security needed for workers within the industry and, as such, something else is needed to give a sense of security to the workers now, and an arm on which to lean on when they grow older.Four service providers were introduced at the forum as being shortlisted for negotiations to provide the pension plan, and Mr. Bartlett outlined some objectives of the plan.“The key objective of this pension plan is to provide a safety net for those who have given of themselves to this industry; hard workers, conscientious workers,” he stressed.Adding that workers within the tourism industry are not among the best paid in the island, he insisted that because of that fact their future could not be left to providence, after they retire.He noted that while some companies within the tourism sector have pension plans, the vast majority do not make such provisions for their workers.“In fact, I am looking at some statistics that suggest that the tourism sector accounts for a marginal total of 2 .1 percent of the total number of pension plans within Jamaica today, and that indicates the great need that we have for growth in this particular area, and to involve a wider number of our people,” he emphasised.He said that with life expectancy rising, it is going to be even more important to have a strong protection plan for life after retirement.Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, Jennifer Griffith, described the pension plan as in keeping with the Ministry’s goal of trying to facilitate a more productive tourism workforce, and to maintain the island’s competitive position within tourism markets.She outlined that a process was embarked on to identify the service providers offering the best suited plan for the tourism industry, and introduced representatives from Scotia Insurance, Jamaica National Fund Managers Limited, NCB Insurance Limited and Guardian Life Limited as the selected service providers that the Ministry will be working with to establish the Pension Plan within the tourism industry.The public education programme to inform employers and employees about plans for the pension schemes will continue on Thursday (May 20), in Ocho Rios, and on Wednesday (May 26) in Kingston.

State defends tax return law

first_imgHomeNewsGovernmentState defends tax return law Sep. 07, 2019 at 5:25 amGovernmentNewsPoliticsState defends tax return lawAssociated Press2 years agoBrad ParscaleDemocratsrepublicansRoque De La Fuentetax returntrumpXavier Becerra By Kathleen RonayneCalifornia’s attorney general is urging a federal judge not to halt a state law requiring presidential candidates release their tax returns, arguing it doesn’t bar anyone from accessing the ballot or deprive voters of their rights.Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat, made his arguments in a Thursday filing in response to a Trump campaign request for an injunction, which would stall the law from taking effect as lawsuits proceeds.The new California law says candidates for president and governor must release five years-worth of tax returns to appear on the state’s primary ballot. Republican President Donald Trump has bucked precedent by declining to release his returns, which he says are under audit.A federal judge is set to hear the request for an injunction on Sept. 19 in Sacramento.The Trump campaign has sued to block the law alongside the state and national Republican parties and several individuals. Roque De La Fuente, a serial candidate for federal office, has also sued.They argue the law violates the U.S. Constitution by adding an additional requirement to run for president and by denying voters their right to associate with their chosen candidates.But California says the law does nothing to bar people from accessing the ballot, because every candidate is capable of releasing their tax returns. Those who do not, Becerra argued, are simply choosing not to.“If these candidates are precluded from appearing on the primary ballot, it would be because of their deliberate refusal to comply with the same financial disclosure requirement that applies to all candidates,” Becerra wrote.Blocking the law would be against the public’s interest, Becerra further argued. Tax returns reveal a person’s sources of income, charitable giving and business ties, all information California Democrats say is vital to determining a candidate’s fitness for office.He said the law imposes a “slight burden” on plaintiffs’ rights, but not a severe one because it is ultimately up to candidates to choose whether to forego the ballot.The request for an injunction will go before U.S. District Judge Morrison England, Jr., who was appointed to the bench by former Republican President George W. Bush.The deadline for candidates running in the March 2020 primary to submit their tax returns to the state is in November.If Trump chooses not to compete in the California primary, he almost certainly would still win the Republican nomination. The California Republican Party, which is holding its fall convention this weekend, may take up a rules change that would ensure they can still send delegates to the national convention next summer if Trump is kept off the ballot.Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale is a featured speaker at the weekend event.Tags :Brad ParscaleDemocratsrepublicansRoque De La Fuentetax returntrumpXavier Becerrashare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentTrump challenges California power to control auto pollutionCrime Watch – Tuesday, September 17, 2019You Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall7 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press18 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson18 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter18 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor18 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press18 hours agolast_img read more
