DHL and others – much to do for the parcel industry – economy

The German parcel industry assumes that this year’s Christmas activities will deliver more shipments than ever before. The consultancy firm KE-Consult, commissioned by the Federal Association for Parcel and Express Logistics, expects growth of up to three percent in the months of November and December. Forecasts assume up to 445 million packages to private households. In 2020, the corona effect was significantly greater, with private households increasing the number of shipments by 23% compared to Christmas 2019. However, uncertainties remain: whether, for example, problems in supply chains global impact and packages are seriously delayed or worse not sent, the level of the previous year could only be maintained. Deutsche Post DHL is the market leader in the parcel industry. The biggest competitors include Hermes, DPD, UPS, and GLS.
