Deutsche Post DHL Group increased revenue in financial year 2015 by €2.6 billion, due to positive currency effects. The German parcel business in the Post - eCommerce - Parcel (PeP) division and the international business in the Express division continued to generate dynamic growth. Earnings were impacted adversely by losses in the Global Forwarding, Freight division resulting from the re-orientation of its transformation process and by restructuring costs in the Supply Chain division. Earnings in the PeP division also suffered from the effects of the strike in Germany. By contrast, free cash flow performed well, posting a significant increase. From the perspective of the Board of Management, this testifies to the sound financial position of the Group.
