Jetpak had a satisfactory first quarter with an organic growth of 7,2 %, which provided a total revenue of 250 430 TSEK. The operating profit amounted to 21 847 TSEK, an increase compared to last year’s operating profit by 47 %. The operating margin amounted to 8,7 %.
Main growth derived from our Express Road segment as our Express Air segment was on same level as a less covid-19 impacted first quarter last year. The Express Air segment’s gross contribution was slightly higher than last year, while the Express Road segment’s gross contribution decreased somewhat due to an increasing amount of systemized business.
The market position was unchanged on airfreight services, as Jetpak maintained the competitive edge on ad-hoc products and met unchanged competition on systemized products.
Price competition on road segment intensified especially on courier logistic services driven by increasing e-commerce volumes during the pandemic. As Jetpak is focusing on more value-added services on courier express and logistics, there were less exposure to price competition and subsequently we managed to maintain our current market position.
New business opportunities were realized within both segments despite air capacity restrains. Jetpak became the main supplier of nationwide distribution of vaccines in Norway, which provided steady revenues during the quarter as well as strengthened our image as a high-quality supplier.
Jetpak maintained a strong cost focus during first quarter. Continued temporary lay-offs and organizational adjustments as well as supplier renegotiations ensured continued cost efficiency and variability, which will support our competitiveness during coming quarters. In January we signed a contract for a new Arlanda handling facility, which will further enhance processes and reduce costs in one of our main gateways.
As previously announced, we have from this quarter introduced a changed segment reporting to Express Air and Express Road. This change is reflected in the comparison figures and this change we believe will enhance both the segment transparency and our decision making.
During the second quarter we expect a continuous ramp up on the air capacity as vaccine programs are rolled out and travel restrictions removed. Pre-corona capacity is still not in sight, as business travel behavior is expected to remain on a lower level, something which will impact frequencies.
Within the Express Road segment, “Nordic Courier & Distribution”-services will be launched during coming quarter providing future commercial potential with in-night distribution and next day services based on Nordic and European accounts. In addition, we will, as part of Express Air, launch new routes in our European network during the remainder of 2021, which will strengthen our European Jetpak Direct services in a longer-term perspective.
Our work with Environmental, Social & Governance enhancing activities will be a continued focus area during coming quarter. We will strive towards a future CO2 neutral business model as well as focusing on a broad compliance to UN Global Compact program.
Based on our first quarter performance, commercial activities, and further recovery from the covid-19 pandemic, we maintain our long-term targets of 5 % organic growth over a business cycle with 12 % of adjusted EBITA margin.
