DPDGroup sales up 11%

DPDGroup has reported a 2017 turnover of €6.8 billion in 2017. Its parent company La Groupe La Poste announced its own financials last week.

Sales at DPDGroup were up 11% against 2016. Overall parcel volumes were up 10% with 1.2 billion parcels delivered in all of its territories.

In a statement issued on its website, the group said: “DPDgroup relies on a hybrid BtoB-BtoC network. The BtoB segment still accounts for 61% of DPDgroup’s volume business in 2017, but DPDgroup was one of the first BtoB operators in the market to make the strategic choice to expand into BtoC. As a result, 37% of DPDgroup’s turnover in 2017 came from the BtoC segment, compared to 34% in 2016.”
