The Board maintains a balanced view on the prospects for Wallenius Wilhelmsen. However, there is increased uncertainty around the volume outlook in light of weaker auto sales in certain markets, potential risk of trade barriers and a slightly softer macro picture. Market rates remain at a low level, but tonnage balance is gradually improving.
Wallenius Wilhelmsen has a solid platform for growth and is well positioned to succeed in a challenging market. Furthermore, the new two-year performance improvement program will support profitability going forward.
