ID Logistics achieved steady growth during the second quarter of 2023, with revenues reaching €658.2 million, marking a 3.6% increase compared to the same period in the previous year. Notably, this growth was even more robust on a like-for-like basis, registering a 3.3% increase.

The company sustained its growth momentum in international markets, with revenue growth of €446.9 million, representing a notable 7.2% increase. When accounting for factors such as acquisitions and exchange rate effects, the growth was a commendable 6.9%, building upon the significant increase of 23.6% in the same quarter of the previous year.
Revenues in France amounted to €211.3 million, showing a decrease of 3.4%. This dip can be attributed to lower consumer volumes, particularly in sectors like DIY and home furnishings, as well as the company’s risk management measures. Throughout the second quarter of 2023, ID Logistics initiated seven new projects, reflecting its commitment to expansion and adaptation.
