“The situation on the transport market has eased considerably compared to previous years.
During the past few years, due to several crises, many companies built up large stocks out of uncertainty — further exacerbating the bottlenecks on the transport market. However, when the situation eased these stocks were reduced, leading to adequate capacities. Although there is a sharp rise in diesel price, which is reflected in our costs, there are currently hardly any capacity problems. In general, there is a clear improvement in both sea and road transport.
However, the situation on the transport market can quickly change, as we experienced at the end of 2023 when cargo ships around the Red Sea began to be attacked. As a result, those passages had to be rerouted, which results in additional cost adjustments.
We hope that the latest challenges in the transport market can be overcome and that “normal” transport routes can be operated again soon.”
