For the first half of 2018, net revenues climbed 1.9% to DKK37,871.0 million, as gross profit increased 1.6% to DKK8,570.0 million, boosted by higher activity levels in all divisions.

The Air and Sea division saw Q2 net revenue growth of 2.5% to DKK9,095.0 million driven by continued strong growth in air freight. Gross profits increased 12.6% to DKK2,387.0 million. EBIT before special items climbed 22.9% to DKK988.0 million. The operating margin increased from 9.5% to 10.9%.

The Road division saw Q2 net revenue growth of 4.6% to DKK7,862.0 million driven by market share gains across the network. Gross profits increased 2.1% to DKK1,318.0 million though these were hit by the transfer of 4PL activities from Road to DSV Group. EBIT before special items climbed 15.4% to DKK322.0 million.

In H1, the Solutions division’s net revenue increased 6.6% to DKK5,959.0 million. Growth in EBIT before special items was driven by the EMEA region. The operating margin climbed from 3.5% to 5.1%, as the number of employees in the division increased by 10.7%.

Going into the second half of 2018, DSV continue to see a stable development on the global transport markets and it has upgraded expectations for 2018. Operating profit before special items is expected to be in the range of DKK5,300-5,600 million (previously DKK5,100-5,400 million). DSV remain eager to do further M&A deals, and it has been described by them as their highest priority and is extremely important to the Company moving forwards.
