Commenting on the results Expolanka Holdings PLC Group CEO Hanif Yusoof said, “In this quarter we are seeing the fruits of our strategic approach to business growth, operational efficiencies and restructuring efforts.

Ocean freight in particular posted a double digit volume growth while global procurement initiatives supported margin improvements. The group’s warehousing business recorded a higher level of utilization and contributed to the turnover growth.
