Remittance volumes driven by e-commerce are approaching sharply high levels delivered last year
The group recorded good business development in the third quarter of this year. As expected, the year-over-year comparison of e-commerce-led B2C shipment volumes improved in the third quarter of 2022, after volumes saw a more pronounced decline in the first half of the year. In the context of general macroeconomic uncertainties, B2B transport volume reflects weaker demand. As a result, the capacity situation in the sea and air cargo markets has been reduced. Overall network activities across all DHL divisions maintained good utilization levels, leading to better EBIT.
Express: EBIT in the Express division reached around EUR 1,010 million in the third quarter of 2022, compared to EUR 971 million in the same period of the previous year.
Worldwide shipping, shipping: EBIT in worldwide shipping, cargo amounted to around EUR 585 million in the third quarter of 2022, clearly ahead of the previous quarter’s result of EUR 372 million.
Supply chain: EBIT in the supply chain was around EUR 220 million in the third quarter of 2022, also well above the result for the same period last year, which was EUR 142 million.

Mail and parcels, Germany: EBIT in mail and parcels in Germany in the third quarter of 2022 was around EUR 285 million, compared to EUR 300 million in the same period of the previous year.
