Emerging markets shaped by strong growth
In the countries of the EEMEA region (Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa), we recorded strong double-digit growth. We generate around 90% of our trade with business customers operating chiefly in the oil and gas, high-tech, life science and textile industries. In order to sustain growth, we are continuously improving our transit times – in the year under review, we reduced them by one day on more than 200 inter-city routes. We have also enlarged our offering, amongst other things by introducing a new range of hazardous goods transport services.
The Russian express market is exceptionally dynamic. In recent years, growth rates there have reached up to 40%. With a share of 41% of the international and 25% of the domestic market, we are the clear leader in Russia. We intend to continue profiting from this vigorous growth in the future.
