The postal division delivers 61 million letters each day in Germany, making it Europe's largest such company. The Express division (DHL) claims to be present in over 220 countries and territories.
The Deutsche Post is the successor to the German mail authority Deutsche Bundespost, which was privatized in 1995 and became a fully independent company in 2000. DHL Express is a wholly owned subsidiary. Since its privatization, Deutsche Post has significantly expanded its business area through acquisitions.
In late 2014, the Group acquired StreetScooter GmbH, a small manufacturer of electric vehicles. By April 2016, the company announced that it would produce 2,000 of the StreetScooter Work model in Aachen by year end. StreetScooter GmbH would be scaling up to manufacture approximately 10,000 vehicles annually, starting in 2017.
In 2016, the Group acquired UK Mail, a business-focused postal service in the UK for US$315.5 million (£243 million).

The Deutsche Post DHL Group's GoGreen program is intended to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and local air pollutants. The company has four interim goals for doing so, to be achieved by the year 2025. The long-term target, summarized by Frank Appel, Chief Executive Officer, is more aggressive. "From now until 2050, our mission will be to drive our business toward zero [logistics related] emissions. We are setting the standard for the future of the transport sector and doing our part to help the world community reach its goal of limiting global warming to less than two degrees Celsius."
