In 2016, GeoPost posted sales of €6.2 billion, 26% of Le Groupe La Poste’s revenues. DPDgroup is n°2 in Europe, with 12% (+0.4% vs last year) market shares of the CEP (Courrier, Express and Parcel) market benefiting from its largest European road network (2015 data).

We are a multi-domestic player and have developed our strong cross-border network by external growth, acquiring well-known domestic players on each market. We have a strong presence across Europe, where we rely on local accountability (strong domestic brands, local proximity to customers), while acting globally in a consistent manner and maintaining the same image and reputation with respect to all our stakeholders. We have developed our network, leveraging our historical expertise in BtoB in order to develop a strong pan-European BtoC network, which represents 36% of our volumes today.
