In the first half of 2015, Deutsche Post DHL Group increased revenue in all divisions, in some cases significantly. Positive currency effects were mainly responsible for the improvement. The German parcel business in the Post - eCommerce - Parcel division and the international business in the Express division continued to generate dynamic growth. As expected, earnings were impacted adversely by costs for turnaround measures in the Global Forwarding, Freight division and by accelerated restructuring costs in the Supply Chain division. Earnings in the Post - eCommerce - Parcel division suffered from the effects of the strike in Germany.
