Whilst consolidated revenue declined slightly, Deutsche Post DHL increased profit from operating activities by
7.5 % in the first nine months of 2013. Revenue in the MAIL division saw an encouraging rise, in part thanks to continued growth in the parcel business. Performance in the DHL divisions was impeded above all by major currency effects. The Group’s good financial position is demonstrated by the marked improvement in operating cash flow and more favourable refinancing conditions on the capital market.
