First quarter sales at Norbert Dentressangle were up 2.3 per cent on last year at 686m euros, the company has revealed.
The Transport division performed best with a 6.8 per cent rise to 403m euros, but Logistics saw sales fall 2.9 per cent to 293m euro.
Higher fuel prices during the period contributed to 0.6 per cent of the revenue growth in Transport. The business also benefited from strong momentum in pallet transport.
Dentressangle said sustained efforts to adapt operating resources to recorded revenue volumes led to further improvement in profitability.
