Jetpak had a satisfactory second quarter of 2021 with an organic growth of 26,3 % and revenue amounting to 256 438 TSEK. The Adjusted EBITA for the quarter amounted to
24 792 TSEK, which represented a significant profit increase versus last year’s corresponding profit level (9 709 TSEK). The adjusted EBITA margin for the second quarter was more than doubled and amounted to 9,7 % (4,8 %).
We had a strong growth in our Express Air segment with high 36,7%, compared with last year’s first fully covid-19 impacted second quarter. This year’s second quarter air capacity remained significantly below pre-pandemic levels, even though capacity increased compared with previous quarters. Increasing capacity combined with up trading and new accounts provided a strong growth compared with last year as well as previous quarters.
Our Express Road segment had a continued strong growth of 18,3% as the segment benefitted from increasing revenue from existing large distribution accounts as well as new customers and continued distribution of vaccines in Norway.
The gross margin for the Express Air segment amounted to 42,9 %, which was slightly lower than last year and driven by minor changes in customer and product mix.
Gross margin for the Express Road segment increased marginally up to 18,2 % due to minor mix changes.
Our market position was slightly improved on our airfreight services, as increasing network and frequencies strengthened our competitive edge on ad-hoc products. During the quarter we experienced no significant competition changes on our systemized products.
Price competition in the road segment continued, especially on courier logistic services driven by increasing e-commerce B2C volumes. Jetpak focus on value-added courier express and logistic B2B services ensured less exposure to price competition and subsequently we maintained our current market position.
Distribution of covid-19 vaccines in Norway provided a steady revenue contribution, as well as strengthened our image as a supplier of high-quality logistic services. Continued revenue potential is expected dependent on need for further vaccine cycles during coming years.
Jetpak continued to maintain a strong cost focus during the second quarter, as temporary layoffs were phased out and replaced by permanent organizational adjustments. Our overhead cost ratio is expected to stabilize on the current level. Supplier renegotiations are currently being conducted, as we are striving at further enhancing margins and future competitiveness.
Our planned commercial initiatives within our Air and Road segments are progressing as planned. Our Jetpak express services are introduced in Europe, but our network expansion and participation from new airlines is still restrained by airline priorities due to their financial distress. Nordic Courier and distribution services are launched, and pipeline is currently being established in Scandinavia as well as Benelux.
During the second quarter we have continued our work with sustainability within the framework of UN Global Compact. A number of selected areas are prioritized with identified gaps and targets, which will be pursued during coming quarters.
During the coming quarters we expect a steady air capacity growth thanks to the removal of travel restrictions and the general introduction of “covid-19 passports”. We however do not expect pre-pandemic capacity within the coming quarters as business and leisure travel still is far from normalized. This will obviously have a strong correlation to our available capacity.
Our second quarter performance was in line with our expectations. Based on commercial activities and covid-19 pandemic recovery we remain confident in achieving our long-term targets of 5 % organic growth and an adjusted EBITA of 12% over a business cycle.
