Jan de Rijk Logistics reports solid growth in 2015


Netherlands-based road feeder services firm Jan de Rijk Logistics has reported higher revenues in 2015.

The company posted a combined turnover of 216 million euros ($244 million) last year, and an operating result of 16.6 million euros compared to an operating result of 15.9 million euros in 2014.

The firm explains: “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.”

Jan de Rijk says 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 logistics company says the outlook for 2016 is “modestly optimistic” and the overall economic growth has been limited so far.
