Hi there!

If you are looking at our company DPDHL (Deutsche Post DHL Group) as a whole - no.

We have currently an increased number of parcels in the B2C segment due to the COVID-10 crisis (e.g. if you order a parcel from Amazon that is delivered by DPDHL). However, this is mainly affecting just one of DPDHL's five divisions (Post & Parcel).

The focus of the other divisions is mainly on B2B. Therefore, they feel the impact of the crisis via their clients as well. To give you an example: DHL Supply Chain operates warehouses for car manufacturers - as the car production is currently partially stopped there is also less business for our colleagues in these fields.

Kind regards
