PostNord has reported record income for the financial year with an 11.1% increase in net sales in the fourth quarter of the year and 3.7% growth across 2020.
As well as strong demand for parcels brought about by the pandemic, PostNord also said that it maintained high productivity and progressed well with its internal improvement programmes.
Annemarie Gardshol, president and Group CEO, commented, “At PostNord, we have focused strongly on reducing the risk of infection for both employees and customers, who these days are extra dependent on safe and secure deliveries. Our ability to quickly make adjustments to respond to new patterns of behaviour in society, combined with a continued focus on our improvement programs, has paid off. This makes us equipped to continue our journey to become the favourite supplier in the Nordic region, with our customers, our partners and our highly professional employees.”
During the year, PostNord also achieved its goal of reducing the carbon footprint of its operations. “I’m very proud that we achieved our target to reduce Group’s total emissions by 40% relative to the 2009 level. Work has begun to achieve the ambition to be fossil-free by 2030,” Gardshol added.
