The Deutsche Post DHL Group consistently ranked among the leading logistics service providers worldwide through the global success of DHL and the subsidiary’s various brands. Based on generated revenue, DHL Supply Chain & Global Forwarding ranked as the world-leading third-party logistic provider in 2020. That same year, third-party logistics had a global market size of over 961.8 billion U.S. dollars. DHL was also among the top five ocean freight forwarders and airfreight forwarders worldwide in 2021, strengthening the Deutsche Post AG’s global position.
The group differentiated itself from most of its leading competitors through the diversification of its operations across the logistics sector. Kuehne + Nagel—the Deutsche Post DHL Group’s main competitor in third-party logistics, ocean forwarding, and airfreight forwarding—did not, for instance, provide postal and parcel services. The group’s versatility has contributed to its consistent growth throughout the pandemic, benefiting from the parcel shipping boom recorded in 2020—unlike FedEx, the leading courier and local delivery service provider in the Americas, which recorded a drop in revenue in 2020.
