Our success as a company therefore depends all the more on qualified employees whom we can attract and retain for the long term," says Filip Rochell, BLG Human Resources Manager for the AUTOMOBILE division, summing up the situation.

For junior automotive staff, skills and expertise in business administration are an important component of professional development. "In a practice-oriented manner, we provide our students with all the necessary knowledge and skills that are prerequisites for a successful professional life in many different fields and positions in the automotive industry," emphasizes BFC Managing Director Sylvia Gerl. The BFC is the only institution in Germany that offers such a comprehensive course of study to become a business economist in the automotive trade (HWK). With their degree, most BFC students pursue the career goal of taking on a middle or senior management position in the automotive industry or at manufacturers, importers, suppliers and service providers. Sylvia Gerl adds, "Since the BFC was founded, approximately 8,000 graduates have successfully completed their studies."
Christian Hegel, Managing Director Inland Terminals of BLG Automobile Logistics, sees great potential in the partnership: "Through our status as a sponsoring member, we support the unique approach of the BFC and contribute to securing the future of our industry. In addition, we can approach students at an early stage and show them perspectives with an attractive employer like BLG. Particularly in the areas of project and customer management, we have good opportunities there." With its management trainee program and the specialist program, BLG offers interesting career opportunities especially for young specialists and graduates.

TugDock CrowleyCrowley announced today a new investment in Tugdock, developers of the world’s first road-transportable floating dry dock known as the Tugdock Submersible Platform (TSP), to help advance offshore wind energy in the U.S.

Crowley, a U.S.-based supply chain solutions company serving the offshore wind sector, and Tugdock will explore potential use of the platforms in locations, such as the U.S. West Coast, where depth and conventional dry docks may be ill-suited for the logistics required.

“This important investment and collaboration with Tugdock strategically complement our vision and market-leading logistics capabilities to support wind energy development from beginning to end,” said Bob Karl, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley Wind Services. “Not only will we help installation developers solve logistics challenges, as a leader in sustainable and innovative maritime logistics Crowley will further the use of offshore wind as a leading alternative energy source by working together with our customers, suppliers, policymakers and others across our value chain for innovations like the Tugdock Submersible Platform.”

In September 2022, the U.S. government announced a goal to deploy 15 gigawatts of installed floating offshore wind capacity off the coast by 2035—enough clean energy to power over 5 million American homes. This supports a U.S. target to reduce the cost of floating offshore wind energy by more than 70-percent, to $45 per megawatt-hour by 2035.

Crowley Wind Services is developing and planning wind terminals in California, Louisiana and Massachusetts. At the California Port of Humboldt Bay, Crowley is progressing on an agreement to build and operate a terminal for manufacturing, installation and operation of offshore wind floating platforms, use of large heavy cargo vessels and provide crewing and marshalling services for the Pacific waters recently approved for leases for wind energy. Humboldt and other West Coast installations will rely upon floating offshore wind turbines.

“We are delighted to form a new partnership with Crowley, a visionary company at the forefront of marine innovation,” said Shane Carr, CEO of Tugdock, which is based in Cornwall, UK.“Their strategic investment will enable us to take our unique technology to the U.S. floating offshore wind market for the first time. We believe that our new partnership will help accelerate the growth of floating offshore wind in the U.S.”

Tugdock recently participated in Crowley’s first Innovation Expo in Jacksonville, Fla., where start-up ventures pitched their innovations for the advanced energy, sustainability, supply chain and technology sectors.

Tugdock’s award-winning, patented TSP technology offers a cost-effective solution for developers and ports in the floating offshore wind industry. TSPs were developed to be launched in ports that lack the sufficient water depth and assembly space required to build and loadout the massive floating substructures required to support offshore wind turbines. The technology allows floating dry docks to be delivered by road in modular form and assembled at the port to dimensions far wider than most of the world’s existing dry docks. Once loaded, the platform is then towed to deeper water for launching and transporting the turbines.

“The cost and time constraints associated with port infrastructure developments and submersible barge suitability are major bottlenecks holding back growth of the floating offshore wind sector,” said Lucas Lowe-Houghton, director of strategy and growth at Tugdock “Our TSP technology helps overcome these issues, providing a ready-to-go solution that does not require planning or environmental permissions. This is a massive benefit as planning permission for a permanent facility could significantly delay project schedules and not provide a return on investment. Tugdock provides a purpose-built permanent or temporary pre-assembly solution for construction and loadout, wind turbine generator integrations and major repair campaigns.”

A principally new service RailJet is expected to become alternative option to airfreight in delivery time and will be much more beneficial for consignors pricewise. With current sanctions pressure, this logistics product will be in demand. It will allow to form competitive, high-quality and convenient for all participants of external economic activity logistics solution”, – said CEO of RZD Logistics Dmitry Murev.

RailJet is a specialized service on the expedited delivery of cargo in postal-baggage train cars. It will be especially relevant for clients from high-tech industries, as well as for companies involved in the area of cross-border e-commerce. RailJet will bring to the market a new service for goods that are sensitive to the delivery time and are generally transported by air, as well as devices that contain lithium-ion batteries and are usually transported by sea transport.

The main advantages of RailJet project include high speed of delivery – up to 5 days, regular shipments – 2 times a week according to schedule, optimal price of transportation and maximum guarantee of cargo safety.

This partnership will help in closing the gap in unmet demand for working capital on the continent.

African companies looking for trade finance will now be able to seamlessly access working capital from Standard Bank via the DP World Trade Finance platform.

DP World Trade Finance connects business with financial institutions as a fintech platform while also directly offering trade finance facilities on its own. It offers businesses a single window to access trade finance solutions – customers can simply apply for credit on the digital platform, which will present them with the best options from global financiers who may otherwise be out of their reach.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World, said: “DP World exists to make the world’s trade flow better and this partnership with Standard Bank is testament to that goal.

With the addition of DP World Trade Finance into our offerings, we aim to support African businesses of all sizes for their working capital needs. Together with Standard Bank, we will help African businesses go from strength to strength and grow their exports to new markets.”

Sinan Ozcan, Senior Executive Officer of DP World Financial Services, said: “Standard Bank joining the DP World Trade Finance platform is great news for businesses across Africa. DP World offers Standard Bank access to data on cargo movements, enabling them to lend with confidence. We in turn plan to co-lend and share risk with Standard Bank on deals made via the platform, whilst Standard Bank will be able to support the many suppliers in DP World’s ecosystem across Africa with its strong financing capabilities. This ecosystem has itself been strengthened by the acquisition of Imperial Logistics by DP World in 2022. Standard Bank’s strong presence across countries like Nigeria, Kenya and Mozambique will see this partnership develop further in the African market.”

Kenny Fihla, Chief Executive Officer, Corporate and Investment Banking at Standard Bank, said: “As Standard Bank moves forward with the ambition of becoming a digitally enabled organisation, we seek partnerships with global multinationals like DP World to deliver trade solutions to our clients across the continent. Partnering with DP World allows us to enhance how we facilitate cross-border transactions in growing key trade corridors.”

Dr Rassem Zok, Chief Executive Officer, Middle East and North Africa at Standard Bank, said: “This partnership reflects our strategic vision of driving Africa’s growth. Platform businesses require strong partnerships at various levels of the value chain. The value derived from our shared knowledge, capability and skills will create unique opportunities to deliver financial services and trade solutions to our clients. As Africa’s largest bank, this is a demonstration of our commitment to the transition of financial services to platform-based ecosystems and improving client experiences.”
