June 10, 2016: Jan de Rijk Logistics, one of the leading logistics service providers in Europe, reports higher revenues in 2015.
The company realised a total combined turnover of EUR 216 million in 2015, and an operating result of EUR 16.6 million compared to an operating result of EUR 15.9 million in 2014.
The recent two acquisitions of de Rooy Logistics and Omega Logistics, and further diversification contributed to the improved results. Through these acquisitions, Jan de Rijk Logistics continued to increase its healthcare & automotive logistics portfolio.
Also, the contract logistics division showed solid growth.
The slowdown of the Chinese economy, the disruptions at the border crossing due to the migrant influx, and different currency fluctuations were the main challenges last year.
The outlook for 2016 is modestly optimistic. The overall economic growth has been limited so far.
