A new ambition : FM Logistic sets its sights on € 2 billion turnover
After two decades marked by successful development in Europe, FM Logistic now has a new ambition, that of reaching € 2 billion as turnover by 2022, by focusing on its core business and developing new competencies.

FM Logistic is rolling out the resources for fulfilling its ambition, by putting in place a new form of governance to steer growth while keeping the business of the company sustainable, changing from joint chairmanship to a separation between the tasks of supervision and execution.
