One of the key issues is land shortages, particularly in town and city centres, where retailers and logistics companies need space to service last-mile delivery. In the latest of our Sheds of the Future series, in collaboration with Savills, we task six architects with designing an ultra-urban logistics hub and residential hybrid. Their concepts are weird and wonderful and provide plenty of food for thought.As well as the potential for ‘sheds and beds’, another evolution, driven by the growing use of automation, could be warehouses being measured in three dimensions, not two – a debate that was reignited by Amazon in November. This would lead to fundamental changes in the way buildings are valued – changes not necessarily welcomed by landlords even if it would equate to higher rents.Another possibly worrying change, in London at least, is a policy being considered by the GLA that would force developers to let a percentage of their schemes at low rents to accommodate small businesses that are being priced out of the market. Finding a balance where the GLA, small businesses and developers are all happy will be tricky to say the least.Gain insights into all these issues and more in this first Industrial & Logistics supplement of 2019. It’s going to be an interesting year.Mia Hunt is Property Week’s market reports editor

Each business is responsible for sales and operations and has profit and loss responsibility. ‘With this new structure, which is designed to meet the needs of the market, we are responding to the constant pressure to consolidate on the European marketplace’, said Dr Norbert Bensel, DB Mobility Logistics board member responsible for Transport & Logistics. ‘Effective use of our resources will provide our customers with greater flexibility and attractive offerings. The focus of the new management team will be to improve the further integration of the rail network’. DB Schenker Rail has around 36 000 employees, 120 000 wagons and 3 900 locomotives, and Bensel says ‘we intend to further strengthen our position as the leading rail freight carrier in Europe.’ Dr Klaus Kremper is Chief Executive of DB Schenker Rail, and also heads the Central region.

People gather at the site of twin car bombs in Benghazi, Libya, January 23, 2018. [Photo: REUTERS] A double car bombing in the east Libyan city of Benghazi on Tuesday left at least 33 people dead and dozens more wounded, including senior security figures and civilians, officials said.People gather at the site of twin car bombs in Benghazi, Libya, January 23, 2018. [Photo: REUTERS]The twin explosions shattered the relative calm that had recently returned to Libya’s second city, scene of more than three years of warfare from 2014 until late last year.The first blast struck outside a mosque in Benghazi’s central Al Salmani district as worshippers were leaving evening prayers.Some 10 to 15 minutes later, after security and health officials had arrived on the scene, a second, more powerful blast was detonated from a Mercedes parked on the opposite side of the street, hitting an ambulance and causing a higher number of casualties.One of those killed was Ahmed al-Feitouri of the investigation and arrest unit attached to the general command of east Libyan security forces. A senior intelligence official, Mahdi al-Fellah, was among around 50 wounded, officials said.The victims also included civilians, among them an Egyptian national employed in a vegetable shop in front of the mosque. Health officials said the toll could rise because some of the wounded were in critical condition.It was not immediately clear who was responsible.Forces loyal to eastern-based commander Khalifa Haftar prevailed in Benghazi’s conflict after protracted urban battles against Islamists and other opponents that left parts of the port city in ruins.There were several bombings during the latter stages of the conflict targeting figures linked to Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA), but Tuesday’s casualty toll was far higher than usual.The LNA claimed victory in Benghazi in July, but sporadic clashes dragged on until last month, when it took control of its rivals’ final holdout.It has imposed strict military controls on Benghazi and other parts of eastern Libya.The fighting in Benghazi was part of a broader conflict that developed in Libya after former ruler Muammar Gaddafi was removed from power and killed in a NATO-backed uprising in 2011.The North African nation has had competing governments aligned with rival military factions based in Tripoli and the east since 2014.The eastern government, which is aligned with Haftar’s LNA and opposes an internationally backed government in the capital, declared three days of mourning after Tuesday’s attack.
LocalNews No claims for losses under deductible percentage of insurance value by: Dominica Vibes News – October 13, 2017 Sharing is caring! Share Tweet Share 713 Views no discussions Share Founder of First Domestic Insurance Company, Curtis TongeClients of First Domestic Insurance Company have been advised that there will be no claims for losses under the deductible two percent of the insured value. Founder of First Domestic Insurance Company, Curtis Tonge, explained the process of insurance claim at the daily press briefing held on Friday, October 13th, 2017. “Since Hurricane David, the deductible has been standardized at two percent of the insured value. In other words, if you insure your house for a hundred thousand, the first two percent becomes a deductible, and two percent of a hundred thousand is two thousand. Again most policy has another proviso which says two percent or two thousand and five, whichever is the greater part,” he stated. Tonge went on to note that persons who suffered damages which totaled less than the deductible percentage have no claim. “So, a person who has a house insured for five hundred thousand, the first two percent of that will mean its ten thousand dollars. So if you have losses that are below ten thousand dollars, there really is no claim. Above that, the other four hundred and ninety thousand dollars, is subject to settlement based on certain conditions,” he added.
