During the second quarter of 2013, Deutsche Post DHL generated further gains in revenues and earnings. Revenues produced by the Group totaled EUR 13.6 billion between April and June. The slight 0.6 percent dip compared with the same period last year was solely the result of negative exchange-rate and other inorganic effects. Adjusted for these factors, revenues in the second quarter of 2013 increased nearly 2 percent above the level reached last year. This growth was largely due to the continuing volume and revenue gains being generated by the parcel segment in Germany, the international EXPRESS business and the SUPPLY CHAIN division.
