Deutsche Post DHL increased profit from operating activities in financial year 2013 to €2.86 billion, due to improved margins. Consolidated revenue declined slightly to around €55.1 billion, largely due to negative currency effects. Most important drivers of growth, the parcel business and the international express business, remain intact. The dynamic parcel business in Germany, for instance, contributed to the positive business development in the MAIL division. International business performance in the DHL divisions was largely impeded by negative currency effects.
