German logistics group Deutsche Post AG said its dependence on Amazon is falling as the coronavirus crisis prompts a big rise in parcel shipments by other customers which it expects to continue in the second half of 2020. Deutsche Post expects to exceed its original assumption for 5% volume growth in the German parcel market, Chief Executive Frank Appel told journalists late on Wednesday. The company is attracting new customers as more people shop online, helping reduce its dependence on Amazon, Appel said, adding that the U.S. company previously accounted for about 6% of its parcel business in Germany and just 2% worldwide.

Deutsche Post DHL <DPWGn.DE>, one of the world's biggest logistics companies, has seen its customers push to diversify their supply chains during the coronavirus crisis, a senior executive told Reuters in an interview. "There is an increased tendency to organise different sources of supply to reduce dependency on one country or one production site in a strategic way," Oscar de Bok, Deutsche Post DHL management board member for the supply chain business, said. "The desire for more flexibility in the supply chain has become more prominent, and that plays to our strength as a contract logistics provider."

German logistics group Deutsche Post AG <DPWGn.DE> said on Tuesday it sees signs that business is normalising in Europe, but the coronavirus crisis continued to weigh in April after dragging down first-quarter earnings. Deutsche Post DHL, one of the world's biggest post and freight companies, said the pandemic depressed global freight volumes in the first quarter but boosted parcel shipments as consumers confined to their homes shopped more online. The Bonn-based company said it had seen express shipments in Europe recover in April after a dip in March, while parcel volumes, which soared to levels usually seen before Christmas in early April, moderated in the second half of the month.

(Bloomberg) -- Jennifer Morgan broke new ground when she became the first woman to run one of Germany’s top-30 listed companies. Her tenure lasted less than a year.Software giant SAP SE appointed Morgan as co-chief executive officer in October alongside Christian Klein. It was heralded as a sign of progress for male-dominated corporate Germany, where a board member of a public company is more likely to be named Thomas than be a woman. But in the run up to financial results, the company canceled her planned interviews and abruptly announced she’ll be leaving at the end of April. Klein will become the sole CEO.“Germany has a special issue,” Simone Menne, former chief financial officer of Deutsche Lufthansa AG and Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH said. “There are still male voices saying there are no women in our industries who are capable of being senior leaders.”Menne left her position as CFO of Boehringer in 2017 following conflicts with chief executive officer Hubertus von Baumbach. Before she took the job, Menne had said in an interview that she wanted to run a company in the DAX, the index for the country’s 30 biggest publicly traded companies.But after three stints as CFO, Menne was never able to become CEO. A woman wouldn’t hold that role at one of the largest companies in the country until Morgan’s appointment in 2019. Menne now runs an art gallery and sits on the supervisory boards of BMW and Deutsche Post AG. She called Morgan’s departure “a disaster.”“We maintain our commitment to equal opportunities, for which we are seen as frontrunners. I read some comments that now even advise women not to pursue management careers. This does women in particular a disservice. After all, we should be encouraging them to take on top jobs, not discouraging them!” SAP’s German head of human resources Cawa Younosi said in an emailed response. “In my opinion it is important not to fall into stereotypes, to resist the triggers and not to generalize an individual case.”SAP blamed the Covid-19 pandemic for causing problems with its leadership structure saying the company will now shift to a lone CEO to provide a clearer management arrangement. Co-CEO models are becoming increasingly unpopular at software companies, because they can slow decision making and breed power struggles.Morgan didn’t respond to requests for comment.Read more: Software Companies Abandon Co-CEOs, Exposing the Model’s RisksThe leadership structure was disorganized and, at times, chaotic, a person familiar with the matter said at the time. With Morgan running the business in the U.S. and Klein in Germany, it took longer to get things done because, in certain instances, managers needed sign off from two different CEO offices, this person said, asking not to be named discussing the company’s internal dynamics.Over time, two distinct power centers emerged, the person said. Klein, who was based at the company’s headquarters in Germany also benefited from his close ties to Chairman Hasso Plattner, the person said.Management teams of listed German companies are predominantly male economists from the western side of the country in their mid-fifties, according to a report last year by the AllBright Foundation, a nonprofit that aims to promote diversity among business leaders. In the U.S.’s top 30 companies by market value, about 28% of the board members are female executives, according to the report. In Sweden’s top 30, that figure is about 23%. But in Germany, the DAX has about 15% in this powerful position.Still, the country, which has been run by a female chancellor for the last 15 years, is trying to change.In 2016, Parliament enacted a law that requires 30% of non-executive board members of German-headquartered companies must be women. In German companies, the board is split into a non-executive supervisory board and a management board. The supervisory board holds management accountable and makes decisions about the direction of the company.German families minister Franziska Giffey is proposing to introduce a quota for the executive board for publicly traded companies with more than 2,000 employees and at least four board positions.Janina Kugel, the former chief human resources officer at Siemens AG, said that getting a critical mass of women in top positions is vital to ending stereotypes of female leaders in Germany.“There is generally little openness or experience of diversity in Germany, not just with regards to gender,” said Kugel, who left Siemens in January. “I fear that the crisis is being used as an excuse to go back on issues like diversity.”Germany suffers from structural discrimination that stems from lack of legislation, she said.From a psychological standpoint, being around people from a similar background may make executives feel more secure when a business environment is unstable, said Philine Erfurt Sandhu, a lecturer at the Berlin School of Economics and Law.“Although diversity is needed more than ever for good decision making at the top, I am currently witnessing a reversal in Germany. Business leaders are looking for a sense of certainty among similar peers,” Sandhu said. “John likes to be with Johnny.”(Updates with additional comment from Kugel in 17th paragraph.

Delivery business DHL <DPWGn.DE> is struggling to cope with a flood of parcels from online purchases due to the coronavirus crisis, forcing it to cut back extra collections from retailers in Germany, parent company Deutsche Post said on Thursday. A Deutsche Post spokesman said that the extra pick-up trips to retailers had been reduced nationwide, adding that DHL was handling more than 8 million parcels a day, similar to pre-Christmas trade and compared to an annual average of around 5.2 million. The German association of online retailers (BVOH) had earlier highlighted the problem, saying if retailers had known about the bottleneck, they would have sought to rein in sales.

The 12-month forward price-to-earnings ratio relies on a bottom-up consensus and that tends to move slowly -- a month or two behind market pricing, Goldman Sachs says.
Deutsche Post AG said on Tuesday the new coronavirus had caused its business to drop below internal forecasts by 50 million euros in February and by 150 million euros in March, forcing it to abandon its profit goals for the year. Group earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) are expected to be around 590 million euros in the first quarter, it said, adding that it plans to disclose quarterly earnings on May 12. Deutsche Post reiterated its guidance for 2022 of achieving group EBIT of at least 5.3 billion euros.

German logistics company Deutsche Post DHL <DPWGn.DE> announced plans on Tuesday to allow customers to pay for postage by app and write a code on the envelope instead of using a stamp, as well as expanding parcel lockers and live tracking of shipments. Deutsche Post said all franked letters would get a matrix code in future to allow their progress to be tracked through sorting centres, a move that should help the company investigate lost items and fight fraudulent reuse and forgery of stamps. From the end of 2020, customers can pay by app to frank letters for no extra charge and get a multi-digit code that they can write on their letters without the need to print anything.
The coronavirus outbreak has wiped up to 70 million euros (58.6 million pounds) off Deutsche Post's <DPWGn.DE> operating profit this month, the German post and logistics group said on Friday. The owner of the DHL delivery business also said it expected to take a one-off charge of 300-400 million euros this year related to its electric van business, and added that neither this nor any estimated impact of the virus outbreak was included in its financial guidance. The current guidance for 2020 is for group earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of more than 5 billion euros.

Amazon.com is lowering the fee it charges in Germany for delivering groceries through its Fresh service and allowing its Prime subscribers to pay per order instead of committing to monthly membership, the U.S. company said on Thursday. Amazon said last month it would eliminate its grocery delivery charge for Prime members in the United States and make shopping easier by combining AmazonFresh and Whole Foods Market ordering on a single site, as it battles rival grocery sellers. On Thursday, Amazon said it would cut the monthly membership fee for Fresh in Germany to 7.99 euros ($8.80) from 9.99 euros and also reduce the additional delivery fee for orders worth less than 40 euros to 3.99 euros from a previous 5.99 euros.
