Yesterday EMS APO played host to a delegation of the German Committee on Eastern Europe Economic Relations (Ostausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft). The group included the deputy German ambassador in Albania. After a tour around the terminal, EMS-Fehn-Group CEO Manfred Müller gave an insight into EMS-Fehn-Group and the current status of the group’s investments in Albania. EMS APO is struggling with continuous attempts to obstruct its business both by state authorities and competitors. Members of the delegation, which included owners and CEO’s of large German companies, were very interested in details about chances and  problems when investing in Albania. A major topic was corruption, as Albania ranks at the bottom of Transparency Internationals Corruption Index in Europe.
The program for the delegation included also a meeting with the Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama. The Committee, which has about 200 companies as members and works closely with the German government, represents the interest of German companies in 21 Eastern countries and sees itself as part of the German „economic diplomacy”.



In a joint project Global Boat Shipping and EMS Chartering shipped a 20 m Catamaran from Rotterdam to Jebel Ali on Monday. Using the advantage of having the knowhow of several EMS-Fehn-Group companies at hand, they were able to offer a swift delivery for a competitive price. The project was supported by Maersk, who became a frequent and reliable partner during the last years. Due to their professional handling and good preparations the loading took less than one hour only.



EMS APO has recently put into operation a hopper that has been specially designed to meet their needs. The hopper has been built by a subcontractor of EMS APO and carries 70 tons. The investment is part of EMS APO’s strategy to enhance the range of services for clients. The hopper improves the handling of fertilizer and other bulk cargo, which opens new business opportunities for the terminal operator.



Fehn Ship Management is taking part in a worldwide programme to reduce greenhouse gas emission, the World Ports Climate Initiative (WPCI). All ships taking part in this voluntary programme have to report the specifics of their fuel consumers, the fuel consumption, the kind of fuel used and the distance they sailed. From this data the output of emissions is calculated and the ship receives an Environmental Ship Index (ESI). The better the score, the more benefits are offered by the partaking ports. This ranges from discounts on port dues to the free use of pilots.



Michael Plewa has taken over the job as managing director of Europatrans from Andreas Schacht, who will leave the company. “Michael Plewa has been in leading positions in both heavy haulage and crane business for more than 15 years,” says Manfred Müller, head of EMS-Fehn-Group. “We are convinced that he is the right man for Europatrans.”
