Deutsche Post DHL

Deutsche Post DHL is a global package delivery and supply chain management company based in Bonn, Germany. Presently they are the world’s largest express deliveryand third-party logistics provider, as well as the largest air freight forwarder and third-largest ocean freight forwarder. Contrary to what their name may suggest, the DHL brand was originally an American company founded in San Francisco in 1969. It was not until the late 1980’s that Deutsche Post started acquiring shares in DHL, with 100 percent of shares being acquired by 2002.


As it can be expected given their worldwide operations, the global financial crisis of 2007-2008 (GFC) significantly impacted Deutsche Post DHL. Following 15 percent drop in 2009, their revenue has since recovered - albeit at an uneven rate – to finally surpass their pre-GFC high in 2018.
