Grevenmacher (Luxembourg) – In the fiscal year 2022, the Logwin Group achieved an exceptionally pleasing increase in revenues and earnings in a market environment chraracterized by special situations. At EUR 2,259.0m, the Logwin Group's total revenues substantially exceeded those of the previous year (2021: EUR 1,851.8m). The operating result (EBITA) of EUR 120.1m was considerably higher than the previous year’s result due to increased margins in parts of the business (2021: EUR 100.9m). Accordingly, net result increased significantly to EUR 73.9m (2021: EUR 63.5m).
At EUR 1,796.0m, sales of the Air + Ocean business segment exceeded the previous year's level significantly (2021: EUR 1,517.0m), mainly due to high freight rates in the first half of the year with slightly declining volumes in line with the market. The Solutions business segment also achieved a pleasing increase in sales to EUR 466.3m, mainly due to freight rates (2021: EUR 337.0m). The increase was mainly due to the international transport business. Contract logistics and German transport activities recorded volume growth driven by recovery effects compared to the previous year, which had still been affected stronger by the Covid 19 pandemic. In addition, price increases contributed to the increased revenues.
The Air + Ocean business segment was once again able to increase its operating result significantly compared to the previous year. On the other hand, the Solutions business segment’s result was significantly affected by one-off expenses in connection with the termination of loss-making activities in Germany.
At EUR 132.9m, the Logwin Group's free cash flow substantially exceeded the previous year's figure of EUR 88.6m. The Logwin Group recorded a cash inflow from operating activities of EUR 169.6m (2021: EUR 125.9m).
