The company's consolidated gross profit for 2014 was EUR109.7 million (USD123 million), which Röhlig says was just about the same level as in 2013. The company explained that this was due to continuing pressure on margins in the sea freight sector.

However, Röhlig says that it has picked up speed in the current fiscal year. "In the first five months of this year, gross profit saw a double-digit increase of 15 percent, with a marked improvement in the operating result as well," said director of finance, Hans-Ludger Körner.

The company added that growth has been particularly pleasing in North America, Asia and South Africa - each of which achieved gross profits 30 percent higher than the previous year.

In future, Röhlig plans to lower its operating costs through the extensive digitalisation of its order processing. The company believes this will free employees to devote more time to customer retention.

Moreover, said Röhlig, future changes in the organisational structure of the company are intended to make it possible to manage its core products of sea freight, air freight, project logistics, and supply chain management on a global basis.
