International logistics provider, Röhlig Logistics, has significantly increased its earnings in 2022, based on preliminary business figures.
FY2022 saw Röhlig Logistics exceed its strong results from 2o21 across the board.
Gross profit generated grew from €213 million to €276 million, with the positive development of Australian, German, South African and US core markets making a particular contribution.
Compared to 2021, Röhlig’s gross profit in sea freight increased by 58 per cent.
Gross profit in air freight increased by 31 per cent.
In contract logistics, Röhlig improved its gross profit by 11 per cent.
Röhlig Logistics Managing Partner, Philip Herwig, said 2022 was the most successful year in the company’s history.
“We increased our EBIT from 61 million euros to 84 million euros and all our core business areas including ocean freight, air freight and contract logistics contributed to the very good result,” he said.
“Our business model of being close to the customer with analog and digital solutions, as well as implementing individual solutions quickly and flexibly has proven its worth in a time of multiple crises.
“We view long-term partnerships with our customers and the continuous expansion of our global network to be the basis of our success.”
During FY2022, Röhlig Logistics continued to implement its Blue Star strategy program to drive the company’s long-term success in 2023.
The aim is to ensure the company’s independence and attractiveness to customers, employees and suppliers primarily through organic growth.
In this context, Röhlig is placing a particular focus on the further development of its digital expertise and the associated expansion of its digital services in close cooperation with the two successful spin-offs cargonerds and logineer.
“Even in a currently weakening market environment, we will continue to focus on growth in our core business, as well as the expansion of both our digital expertise and global network in 2023,” Herwig said.
