DHL to make biggest digital investment yet

Deutsche Post DHL Group has revealed its new Group Strategy – “Strategy 2025 – Delivering excellence in a digital world”, revealing a spend of around EUR 2 billion on digitalisation.

The Group will be stepping up its digital transformation that is already underway in all business divisions.

“Deutsche Post DHL Group has never been in better shape. We are convinced that future growth will come from a consistent focus on our profitable core logistics businesses – and digitalization will become the greatest lever,” said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group, during the presentation of “Strategy 2025” in Frankfurt am Main. “We need not reinvent ourselves. We will digitalize ourselves.”

“Strategy 2020”: Very good market position to shape the future of logistics

With “Strategy 2020 – Focus.Connect.Grow.” the Group has achieved leading positions in each market. It is therefore very well positioned for future growth. Beyond that, the Group has gained valuable learnings to perform even better in the next strategy cycle. “Experience shows that we are particularly successful whenever we use our resources and innovative capabilities to drive forward our profitable core logistics business,” said Frank Appel. “For this reason, we have gradually disengaged non-core activities over the last few years and have targeted investment into boosting the profitable long-term growth of our core businesses, such as the quality of our networks and the modernization of our intercontinental fleet for Express,” he continued. Over the past years, the company has already captured significant potential in terms of revenue and margin improvement, for example in its Express and Supply Chain division.
