Deutsche Post DHL Group, the world's leading logistics company, is changing the name of the company to DHL Group w.e.f July 1, 2023.

"The new name reflects the transformation the Group has gone through in the past years and pays tribute to the focus on its national and international logistics activities as a driver for future growth," says an official release.

"Over the past decade, the mega trends of globalisation, e-commerce, digitalisation, and sustainability have had and will continue to have a strong positive effect on our business," says Group CEO Tobias Meyer. "They have opened new growth opportunities to us in many areas. Today, we are one of the most international companies in the world. The name DHL Group and the use of the DHL logo for the Group follows on from the development of our company's business, which outside of Germany almost only ever uses the DHL brand. Meanwhile, within Germany, the DHL brand continues to gain in importance."

Over 90 percent of the Group's revenue stems from businesses trading under the DHL brand, including the DHL Parcel business in Germany. The Deutsche Post and DHL brands will continue to be used in Germany, as they have been in the past, the release added.

"We are very proud of Deutsche Post's tradition, its rich heritage and history that stretches back to the 15th century," says Meyer. "We will continue to use and cherish the Deutsche Post brand in joint branding with DHL, and remain The Post for Germany."

The DHL divisions will continue to operate under their current names with one exception: "As of July 1, 2023, the Group will also harmonise and simplify the name of the DHL eCommerce Solutions division, which operates as DHL Parcel in some countries. In the future, this division will consistently use the name DHL eCommerce."
