“The improvement in consolidated operating results compared to the extremely satisfactory corresponding period in 2015 confirms the continued positive performance of the Group amid deteriorating market liquidity conditions as well as the continuing capital controls,” the company said in a statement.
The group also reported improved traffic volumes up by 10.5 percent in private vehicles and by 8.9 percent in freight units.
In efforts to strengthen performance, the company launched ferry services between Morocco and Europe carried out through newly established Moroccan company Africa Morocco Links (AML) between the ports of Tanger Med in Morocco and Algeciras in Spain.
