Deutsche Post DHL reports four operating segments; these are managed independently by the responsible segment management bodies in line with the products and services offered and the brands, distribution channels and customer profiles involved. Components of the entity are defined as a segment on the basis of the existence of segment managers with bottom-line responsibility who report directly to Deutsche Post DHL’s top management.
The Consolidation column and the Corporate Center/Other collective segment are reported separately. The collective segment comprises the activities of Global Business Services (GBS), the Corporate Center and other areas. The activities concerned are composed of non-operating activities and other business activities. The profit/loss generated by GBS is allocated to the other operating segments, whilst its assets and liabilities remain with GBS (asymmetrical allocation).
The main geographical areas in which the Group is active are Germany, Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific and other regions. External revenue, non-current assets and capex are disclosed for these areas. To enhance transparency, the management allocations previously contained in the external revenue figures were removed from the areas. The prior-period amounts were adjusted accordingly.
Revenue, assets and capex are allocated to the individual areas on the basis of the domicile of the reporting entity. Non-current assets primarily comprise intangible assets, property, plant and equipment, and other non-current assets.
To more appropriately reflect the different requirements of Express and Freight customers, DHL Express Sweden transferred its day-definite domestic business to DHL Freight Sweden effective 1 January 2010. The prior-period amounts were adjusted accordingly.
