German logistics group Deutsche Post AG <DPWGn.DE> raised its outlook for full-year operating profit on Wednesday and said it expected "exceptionally strong" business up to Christmas as ecommerce keeps booming during the coronavirus pandemic. Deutsche Post DHL, one of the world's biggest post and freight companies, said preliminary figures showed third-quarter operating profit rose 45% to around 1.37 billion euros (1.25 billion pounds), even as it granted employees a 300 euro bonus each. "We were able to significantly benefit from the dynamic ecommerce growth in our businesses", Chief Executive Frank Appel said in a statement.
Deutsche Post's DHL <DPWGn.DE> subsidiary plans to levy a surcharge of at least 5 euros (4.56 pounds) for express shipments bound for Britain from January when the country leaves the European customs union, the German logistics company said on Tuesday. Britain left the European Union last January and is locked in negotiations on a new trade deal from 2021, as well as on implementing the divorce. DHL is also planning price increases of 4.9% on average for 2021, the spokesman said.
United Parcel Service Inc on Wednesday said it would hire more than 100,000 workers for the winter holiday season, which retailers are stretching out to avoid overwhelming a delivery network already taxed by pandemic-fueled online shopping. The world's largest package delivery company plans to hire about the same number of seasonal holiday helpers as last year. It expects this year's peak season to extend from October to January - one month longer than last year, as retailers prep for their earliest-ever kickoff.
