Allcargo Logisticshas reported over two-fold growth in its consolidated profit after tax (PAT) to ₹280 crore for the June quarter.

The company had posted a PAT of ₹106 crore in Q1FY22, Allcargo said in a release on Thursday.

Its consolidated revenue during Q1 FY23 rose 65 per cent to ₹5,675 crore, it said. The firm's EBITDA doubled to ₹434 crore from ₹217 crore in the year-ago period, Allcargo Logistics said.

There has been a sustained increase in revenues coming through the digital platform ECU360, which accounts for 60 per cent of export bookings across all key markets, it added.

The international supply chain business operating under ECU Worldwide saw robust growth. The ocean freight rates have seen a declining trend over the last 3-4 months, Allcargo said. The company, however, has managed to grow revenues on the back of strong volumes. The profits remain steady with a focus on digitisation and yield management, it stated.

Container volume under the CFS-ICD business stood at 1,38,300 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) in the June quarter against 82,500 TEUs handled in Q1 last year. The Q1 performance has been good "despite macroeconomic headwinds from the Ukraine war, inflation, and slowdown in demand. Against this backdrop, the company achieved sequential volume growth in international supply chain business," said Shashi Kiran Shetty, Chairman, Allcargo Logistics, ECU Worldwide and Gati Ltd.

The company continues to focus on asset-light businesses and evaluate strategic acquisitions across the world to further strengthen its competitive positioning, it stated.

All acquisitions continue to do well despite disruptions in rail operations due to the Ukraine war, with the business significantly outperforming the market growth in India, the US, Canada, Thailand, and various parts of Europe, it added.
