Clipper reports "encouraging" e-fulfillment

Midway through 2018, Clipper Logistics (CLG) surprised the market in its full-year release with a cautionary tone from management over future contract conversion rates. Happily, this has yet to play out. Analysts at Numis said contract wins had been “encouraging” during the first half and “create significant forward profit momentum” for the e-fulfilment division.

Together, this helped drive a 17.1 per cent increase in operating profit from e-fulfilment to £6.2m.
