As the end of the year approaches it is time for LOG’S to review 2015, a year which was especially positive for the Group.

It was a record-breaking year for new contracts and renewals alike, after the start of the textile business with and in January, the group set up a 75,000 m2 logistics campus dedicated to this sector which is now functioning at full capacity with the arrival of a new customer in March and a fourth due to arrive in 2016. 

In spring the Group’s portfolio has included business with Renault for the management of secondary car parts, initially for the Douai factory, and with Orchestra commencing with 42,000 m2 at Lauwin Planque, while awaiting an additional 96,000 m2 in Arras, which will come back on line at the end of 2016. 

During the summer we firmed up two new platforms of 18,000 m2 and 15,000 m2 for Foir’Fouille at Dourges. Following the holidays in September, LOG’S signed a contract with Vente Privée in the Paris region. We also implemented a new agri-food logistics plan for Chicorée Leroux and set up logistics operations for Coroos in France, a major Dutch canning business for private labels.

The latter is handled by a fully automated high-ceiling warehouse. 

“The deployment of “Lean Log’S” and the company’s shared values of Availability, Responsiveness and Customer care enabled us to win the contract and firm up the commercial approach while establishing a good dynamic for the future.” says Nicolas Specq, Director of Sales. Having achieved and consolidated its position as the leading Logistics provider in the north of Paris, Log’S decided to change its vision for the future, which had been to “Support our customers throughout France from the Northern Region”. 

The Log’S plan for 2016-2019 is to extend its presence over the national territory through the implementation of a wide-ranging commercial development plan and to continue with international projects in Africa, Asia and Southern Europe, which will be firmed up during 2016. The Management team is focusing on opportunities for external growth to strengthen the Group’s development in its traditional sectors such as multi-channel and industrials.

“We are aiming to continue our controlled growth targeting a turnover of 100 million Euros by 2019 through the expansion of our geographical coverage and our offering. 2015 was a great year for us and the future looks bright“ says Laurent Beauvoir, Development Director. 

In 2015 the LOG’S Group achieved a turnover in the order of 71 million Euros, for an increase of 12% over 2014, and new business for 2016 already points to an increase of 30%. EBITDA for 2015 was 14 million Euros, an increase of 37%. According to Franck Grimonprez, Chairman of Log’S “our staff will be pursuing our plan for 2014-2019 with confidence and upholding our values“.
