Panalpina: “While we are glad to see volumes on the rise in the first quarter, the remainder of 2010 is hard to predict. We expect Asia to be the major growth driver in the coming months as consumption in Europe will most likely take more time to recover. Our focus will thus remain on gross profit generation, cost and cash control,” Monika Ribar, CEO. Source: Panalpina, 29-Apr-2010.
