"We have had - the managing director of the German company, Rolf Habben has said, commenting the results of first trimester 2018 - a good beginning of year, but the context of the market is challenging. The hires have turned out under pressure, the costs of the bunker and the costs of the road haulage in some important markets are increased and we have been confronted with a weakening of the dollar, even if the increase of the transported volumes and the synergies has supported the results. We expect a gradual improvement of the market in the course of 2018, but the effect of this improvement will be only perceived in the results of the second half of the year".
