Global logistics major Deutsche Post DHL Group has unveiled “Strategy 2025 – Delivering excellence in a digital world.” The initiative entails stepping up the digital transformation of the group that is already underway in all business divisions. Till 2025, the group will be spending around EUR 2 billion on digitalization. According to a company release, this sum is already included in the planned Opex and Capex spending.
“Deutsche Post DHL Group has never been in better shape. We are convinced that future growth will come from a consistent focus on our profitable core logistics businesses – and digitalization will become the greatest lever,” said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group, during the presentation of “Strategy 2025” in Frankfurt am Main. “We need not reinvent ourselves. We will digitalize ourselves.”
The group has confirmed four trends that have been impacting logistics in recent years – Globalization, E-Commerce, Digitalization and Sustainability. “Strategy 2025” is the group’s answer to these and the next logical step from the previous strategy.
