Eric Hémar, Chairman and CEO of ID Logistics, commented: « ID Logistics has completed another quarter of strong activity, both in France and outside France, where our growth momentum is not slowing down. The continued growth of our revenues is even more noticeable given that the Group managed to keep its revenues stable in the second quarter of 2020 marked by strict lockdown measures in several countries ».

CONFIRMATION OF THE GOOD START TO 2021 WITH SUSTAINED GROWTH IN Q2
ID Logistics confirms the good start to 2021 with continued strong revenue growth in the 2nd quarter to reach €457.4 million, up +19.1% and +20.5% on a like-for-like basis. As a reminder, activity in the second quarter of 2020 recorded a slight decrease (-0.6%) despite lockdown measures, particularly in France and Spain.
In France, ID Logistics recorded a +14.8% increase in revenues to €195.9 million in the past quarter.
The 2nd quarter of 2020 had been impacted by the lockdown measures in April and early May 2020 before rebounding strongly in June 2020 to end up slightly down (-5.9%) compared to the 2nd quarter of 2019. The temporary downturn in activity was therefore largely offset by the good performance recorded in Q2 2021.
International revenues continued to accelerate in Q2 2021, with revenues up 22.5% to €261.5m. Adjusted for a generally unfavorable currency effect, revenues were up 25.1% like-for-like compared with Q2 2020. As a reminder, international activity had increased by +4.1% despite the global health crisis.
ID Logistics thus concludes the 1st half of 2021 with revenues of €893.1 million, up 15.0% (+17.7% on a like-for-like basis), with a level of activity benchmarked in 2020 that had already increased by +4.3% over the same period. Growth in e-commerce activity remains dynamic and accounted for 27% of revenues in the first half of 2021. ID Logistics has started up 9 new warehouses (4 in France and 5 internationally) since the beginning of the year, in line with the roadmap set for 2021.
The number of tenders to which ID Logistics is invited remains significant in the second quarter of 2021.
For example, the Group won or started up the following new contracts during the second quarter 2021:
In France, ID Logistics will increase its e-commerce position by starting a new activity for a strong
e-commerce pure player for non-sortable products. The operations will start in July 2021 on a 70,000 sqm warehouse, located in the North of France. About 500 FTE will operate in this site.
In Spain, Nueva Pescanova Group, a leading international seafood company, has selected ID Logistics to manage three of its factory warehouses located in Chapela and Porriño (Pontevedra) and Arteixo (A Coruña). ID Logistics, in addition to managing the day-to-day activities, ensures the customs obligations and supports the transformation process of the operations.
In Russia, ID Logistics starts a strategic cooperation with LPP, a leading fashion company, strengthening its position in the e-commerce logistics market in Russia. A new 30,000 sqm warehouse, dedicated to e-commerce operations and located in the Moscow region, will be operated by more than 300 FTE.
Thanks to the good start to 2021 and taking advantage of its leading position in e-commerce, ID Logistics intends to continue its profitable development, while remaining vigilant to the evolution of the Covid-19 crisis.
ID Logistics also remains attentive to external growth opportunities, particularly in Northern Europe and the United States.
2021 first-half results: August 25, 2021, after market close.
