DP DHL Group Raises 2022 Guidance on Back of Rising e-Commerce Volumes
Deutsche Post DHL Group, the world’s leading logistics company, has released preliminary results for the third quarter of 2022. The Group’s EBIT reached around $2 billion in the third quarter 2022 (Q3 2021: $1.7 billion).
Thus, Group EBIT for the first nine months of this year reached around $6.32 billion (9M 2021: $5.6 billion). Therefore, 2022 EBIT guidance (currently: $7.8 billion +/-5%) will be revised upwards with the formal release of full third quarter 2022 earnings on November 8, 2022.
e-Commerce driven shipment volumes coming closer to strongly elevated levels delivered last year
The Group has recorded a good business development in the third quarter of this year. As expected, year-on-year comparison of e-commerce driven B2C shipment volumes improved in the third quarter of 2022, after volumes recorded a more pronounced decline in the first half of 2022.
Against the backdrop of overall macroeconomic uncertainties, transport volumes in the B2B business reflected a softer demand. Consequently, the capacity situation in Ocean and Air Freight markets has eased.
