Nobert revenues up in 2013

Norbert Dentressangle’s revenues were up 3.9 per cent during 2013, with EBITA almost identical to 2012, after adjustments.

The firm saw strong growth in logistics, a small decline in transport, and light growth in freight forwarding.

This growth was in line with the firm’s targets.

Chief executive, Hervé Montjotin said: “We expanded our operations into new high-growth regions such as Russia. In our business areas where size is a key success factor, we became the fourth largest logistics operator in Italy and ramped up our freight forwarding operations in France so as to meet the challenges of this sector.

“We have consolidated and increased our freight forwarding expertise, particularly in the field of customs engineering, and confirmed our position as a leading logistics operator in booming sectors such as e-commerce.

“These new market positions, coupled with our robust balance sheet and the commitment of our staff, gives us every reason to be confident in our future.”
