Driven by a 20% increase in parcels volumes delivered in Belgium and the Netherlands, bpost’s Parcels & Logistics Europe & Asia division recorded 5% revenue growth in 2019.

However, this was offset by lower revenue for mail, retail and US e-commerce logistics services, as well as a drop in income for real estate sales. As a result, total revenue fell 0.3% year on year.

The post’s profitability continued to fall in line with mail volumes, as well as increased investment in the lower-margin parcel and logistics sectors. It aims to increase efficiency in mail delivery and improve the price mix for parcels to drive improved profitability in the coming years.
