Due to the continuous slow of global economy and international trade in Q3 2023, Dimerco dedicates to its global network of forwarding and logistics locations and cloud-based SCM international logistics service platform with clear market positioning and effective digital marketing to attract customers while Dimerco has been able to deliver solid results. Plus, especially in response to the US-China tensions and considering geopolitical risks, many European and American customers have been requesting manufacturers to adopt a “China plus one” policy. This involves relocating some production lines to Southeast Asia and India. As a result, regional freight volumes have increased with the increasing demand of eCommerce growth in China and AI Supply Chain product from Asia to USA. Companies like Dimerco have benefited from having established long-term marketing and service points in Southeast Asia and India, which has led to significant business growth. Besides, compared with the same period last year, although there’s a 10%-20% decrease in Q3 2023 on tonnage/volume, which is much lower than the 50% decrease on revenue, it shows the stable profit with gross profit margin at 17.4%, an increase of 3.6% compared to the same period last year at 13.8%.
On the other hand, Dimerco cares about worldwide customers with sound financial capability and account receivable management.
