Deutsche Post World Net is the global market leader in logistics at the end of 2005. Our Deutsche Post, DHL and Postbank brands stand for a broad range of services for managing and transporting mail, goods and information. Over 500,000 employees in more than 220 countries and territories on all five continents provide superior logistics services to help our customers be even more successful in their markets.
What we have delivered in 2005:
The acquisition of Exel has made our Group the world’s number one for logistics – enabling us to offer our customers a broad range of products and services from a single source. We also successfully completed our STAR program for value creation and integration. Linked to this was our goal to increase consolidated EBIT to at least €3.7 billion by the end of 2005. We have more than delivered on this.
What we want to deliver in 2006:
Our company is well positioned both strategically and financially. We intend to use this strong basis to further improve our operating performance. We will gear all workflows even more strongly to the needs of our customers. We don’t just want to be the largest logistics provider, we also want to be the number one for quality and customer satisfaction. We intend to integrate Exel rapidly and successfully.
Making our customers successful
This is one of our corporate values, which we discussed in depth at numerous workshops and information events in the course of 2005; they are now firmly anchored in our company.
Customer orientation and quality are also core objectives of the new strategic program First Choice. The logistics sector is growing fast and in the future we want to be not only the largest provider, but also the first choice for our customers.
