The continued recovery of the global economy led to strong demand for logistics services in the first half of 2021. In this environment, the Kuehne+Nagel Group delivered an outstanding financial performance; all business units were able to significantly exceed prior year earnings. At CHF 13.3 billion, the Group's net turnover for the first six months of 2021 was 35% higher than in the same period of last year while EBIT more than doubled to CHF 1.0 billion.

Dr. Detlef Trefzger, CEO of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, says: 'This year, we are experiencing uniquely high consumer demand combined with supply chain uncertainty. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our employees, a successfully implemented strategy and our agile logistics solutions, we have once again met the increased service requirements of our customers in a challenging market environment. We expect demand to remain strong and look forward with confidence to continuing the positive development.'

In the second quarter of 2021, the trend towards transporting higher value products in Sea Logistics continued. This, coupled with limited container capacity and reduced productivity across the supply chain, required a very high and sustained level of service intensity.

At 2.2 million TEU, container volumes in the first half of 2021 were up 3% on the same period last year. The unit's net turnover was CHF 5.2 billion and EBIT CHF 504 million. The conversion rate again reached a new record level of 46.7%.

The online platform Seaexplorer with actual information on the transport situation proved to be particularly valuable for Kuehne+Nagel's customers.

Despite global capacity constraints, Air Logistics recorded significant volume growth in the first half of 2021 thanks to tailor-made customer solutions such as combined sea and air freight. The business unit again recorded strong market share gains. Transport solutions for pharma and essential goods as well as e-commerce were in particularly high demand.

From May onwards, the first-time consolidation of Apex also contributed to the overall result. The company is one of Asia's leading freight forwarders, especially on the transpacific trade route. Together, Kuehne+Nagel and Apex offer their customers a compelling value proposition in the competitive Asian logistics industry, especially in e-commerce fulfilment, hi-tech and e-mobility.

Air freight volumes in the first half of 2021 were up 44% on the same period last year at 988,000 tonnes. Net turnover was CHF 4.0 billion and EBIT CHF 406 million. The conversion rate was 42.3%.

The demand for ecologically-friendly solutions such as Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) expanded sharply over the period. In response, Kuehne+Nagel entered into partnerships with American Airlines, IAG Cargo (British Airways) and Air France-KLM Martinair Cargo.

In Road Logistics, the first half of 2021 was characterised by a significant increase in the number of shipments, maximising network utilisation. Kuehne+Nagel continued to accept a rising number of customer orders in European less-than-truckload networks, with no degradation of high service quality especially.

The business unit's net turnover in the first half of 2021 was CHF 1.8 billion and EBIT more than doubled to CHF 54 million compared to the same period last year.

The digital customs clearance platform 'Your Easy Brexit Solution,' originally designed for Brexit, was rolled out further in Q2 2021 due to its great success and is now available to manage customs clearance globally. In Asia-Pacific, digital bookings via eTrucknow experienced strong growth. This platform is now available in 18 countries worldwide.

In the first half of 2021, Contract Logistics managed to expand its business with strong growth of pharma and e-commerce fulfilment solutions. These two segments alone accounted for approximately 80% of customer wins.

Due to the divestment of parts of the UK contract logistics portfolio in January 2021, net turnover of CHF 2.2 billion in the first half of 2021 was slightly below the prior-year period. EBIT improved by 60% to CHF 72 million.

In the first half of the year, Contract Logistics opened several highly automated facilities including new distribution centres for the semiconductor and consumer goods industries.

In these special times, our company stands for entrepreneurial vision and for a highly motivated team. Last but not least, the targeted expansion of our positions in Asia is increasingly paying off.'
