Summer greetings from LGT

Horsens, the 4th of July 2022

Summer greetings to customers and partners


Dear customers and partners.

Here on the eve of the summer holiday 2022, it is time to review. At LGT Logistics in Horsens, we have experienced the Corona crisis of both good and evil; First, the restrictions meant that many chose to spend a lot of money on house and home. And that has meant that our customers - and therefore also LGT - have been incredibly busy throughout the second half of 2020 and right up until now. But at the same time, we got the Covid19 disease inside the doors in earnest in March and April this year and experienced over 2,000 sick hours at our terminal in just 8 weeks. It was violent!

This year we have completed the implementation of our acquisition of Arling Int. Furniture transport, which we carried out on 1 September 2021. It is positive to see a markedly strengthened set-up on the traffic to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. And it is really gratifying to experience the many new colleagues who are highly motivated - even though the distance from home to work has become a little longer.

The first months of 2022 have been characterized by the same high level of activity as throughout 2021. But as the world has unfortunately evolved, we are observing incipient fluctuations in different markets. Fortunately, LGT Logistics' strength is that we are active in all markets in Europe and during the first 6 months of the year we have been able to start business with several new customers, which we of course are proud of.

Although our everyday life will continue - and probably in all future - will include many online meetings with customers and business associates, we at LGT are happy that we can meet face2face again. And we are also happy that this year we have been able to travel to trade fairs and meet our customers where all activity is founded - we have met customers in Copenhagen at Trends & Traditions and at 3Days of Design and met customers at the fair in Milan.

And later this year we will meet the market at Maison & Object in Paris, at Faira Hábitat in Valencia and at Orgatec in Cologne.

And our targeted further development continues. The development never stands still when it comes to offering Europe's furniture industry the best furniture logistics services. Whether it is delivery to the store - delivery to private individuals - delivery to projects - or a good storage solution. We are always ready for a chat with new and existing customers, where we reflect on the present, but look purposefully into the future.

With this greeting, we at LGT Logistics in Horsens want to send our customers and partners on a well-deserved summer vacation. We look forward to once again tackling the many challenges and tasks on the other side of the holiday.

 

Yours sincerely
LGT Logistics A/S
