Key Highlights
A decline in the volume of oil and gas projects had a negative impact on Panalpina’s air freight revenues in 2016
Panalpina’s air freight division operates across six continents and registered an annual growth rate of 10.5%, from 836,000 tonnes in 2015 to 921,400 tonnes in 2016 - due in part to an increase in the demand for perishable commodities. However, in terms of revenue, the segment registered a decline of -3.1% between 2015 and 2016 from US$2,749.4m in 2015 to US$2,664.9m in 2016.The decline in the revenue was primarily attributed to a decline in the number of oil and gas projects led by the decrease in production in 2016.

A drop in freight rates caused the ocean freight division’s revenue to decline
Due to a decline in the oil and gas production and the negative impact of Hanjin’s bankruptcy on the market, Panalpina’s ocean freight division registered a decline in terms of both revenue and volume. In volume terms, the division registered a decline of -6.6%, while in revenue terms it recorded an annual growth rate of -24.6%, falling from US$2.7bn in 2015 to US$2.0bn in 2016.

Limited overland oil and gas activity caused a decline in Panalpina’s logistics revenue
The logistics segment is mainly into supply chain management and logistics manufacturing services. Similar to the other two segments of the company, the logistics segment has extensive operations and warehousing facilities in all the major regions of the world. However, as a result of the low overland oil and gas activities, the segment’s revenue declined at rate of -19.5% between 2015 and 2016 from US$647.4m in 2015 to US$579.2m in 2016.
