DSV continues the positive development, and UTi's operating deficit has been neutralised only five months after the acquisition. The integration of UTi is progressing faster than we had originally anticipated, and the merger of offices and IT systems is already more than halfway complete. UTi's and DSV's employees and operations are being united step by step across the world, and it is great to see that our new colleagues are highly motivated to become part of the DSV culture — that is crucial for a successful integration."
