DPDHL: Significant increase in revenue and operating profit

Deutsche Post DHL Group has  generated further growth in the second quarter of 2020, despite the impact of Covid-19.

Thanks to its broad portfolio of logistics services and its global presence, the Group increased revenue by 3.1 % to EUR 16.0 billion compared with the same quarter last year. Organic revenue growth (adjusted for portfolio and currency effects) was even higher at 4.6 %.

This was mainly driven by strong growth in e-commerce. Deutsche Post DHL Group was able to improve its operating profit (EBIT) by 18.6 % to EUR 912 million in the second quarter.

Adjusted for non-recurring effects last year and this year, EBIT climbed even by EUR 229 million to EUR 1.1 billion. With these results, the Group slightly surpassed the preliminary quarterly figures it released in July.

Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group said: “More than on any occasion before, the crisis has shown the resilience of Deutsche Post DHL Group. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our 550,000 employees worldwide, we have been able to secure supplies to the world and maintain important supply chains for the industry – even in extremely challenging times.

“Especially now, our focus on our profitable core logistics businesses and the digital transformation of the company as part of Strategy 2025 pays off. We have never been in better shape and I am confident that our company will emerge stronger from the crisis.”
