Over the past two years, An Post has seen its packet and parcel volumes increase more than 80%, driving total revenue growth to 6.8% in 2018.

Volume growth was the result of the strategic decision to increase its market share in the parcels sector, where An Post reports that it is now the Irish market leader, with a 30% market share. As well as seeing revenue grow strongly, the operator reported improved profitability for the second consecutive year. However, retail profitability has been falling steadily in recent years. To address this and increase the value of the retail network for the Irish consumer, An Post implemented a network transformation in 2018.
