In total, Deutsche Post DHL Group will spend EUR7 billion in sustainable fuel and clean technologies by 2030.
"This investment is a real demonstration of the excellent work our people and partners have delivered over the past two years to get us to the level of growth where major expansion is required to meet customer demand.
E-commerce is going to continue to shape the world around us, this investment, along with the strength of the DHL brand and our leading approach to digitalisation and sustainability will put us in a strong position to take advantage of market growth."
Peter Fuller, CEO of DHL Parcel UK
"The Covid pandemic has not only driven digitalization, but also significantly changed consumer behavior, rapidly accelerating the growth of e-commerce and shifting shopping habits. At Deutsche Post DHL Group we believe this shift to online shopping will remain intact and, as e-commerce is one of the important pillars in our Group Strategy 2025, we'll continue to invest in the sector.
This investment in the UK is a key part of that, supporting the expansion and modernization of our European network. I'm really looking forward to supporting the business on its growth path in my new role as CEO DHL eCommerce Solutions starting August 1."
