Shareholder's update for the 5 months of 2024 Group sales performance

The European elections are behind us, but the wars in Northern and Southern Europe continue. In the Middle East, a ceasefire is nowhere in sight which intensifies problems in the supply chain and creates an appetite for opportunistic pricing for freight forwarders.

 

In Greece and Europe, inflation appears to be easing, but prices of many essential goods remain out of line with incomes.


As the first half of the year comes to an end, the market data does not justify enthusiasm at this stage, rather it supports defensive strategies and caution.
