GO! announces average price adjustment
of 5.8 per cent

  • Measures to attract and retain skilled personnel
  •  Roll-out of infrastructure for growing consignment volumes
  •  Investments in process optimisation to actively safeguard the future

The express and courier service provider GO! is raising its standard prices with effect from 1 February 2020
by an average of 5.8 per cent. With this price adjustment, the quality leader in the CEP market is responding to general cost increases and laying the foundation for the planned investments in the current business year.

Diverse investments in the future

The consignment volume has more than doubled over the past ten years. In response to this steady growth, GO!
is continuing to expand its capacities. To secure its future over the long term, the medium-sized company is investing strongly in personnel, infrastructure and process optimisation. “With our diverse, flexible services, top delivery rates and very low damage rates, we make a decisive contribution to our customers’ success,” says Ulrich Nolte, managing director of GO! Express & Logistics (Deutschland) GmbH. “In order to safeguard the high quality of our performance and ensure that we are well-positioned to meet our customers’ future requirements we are again planning substantial investments in 2020. This will enable us to continue to shape our own and our customers’ business success going forward.”

Additional costs for personnel, environmental protection and energy supply

Over 3,000 couriers and more than 1,400 employees currently work for GO! Express & Logistics. In order to retain them, offer ongoing training to qualify them for new market demands and hire new colleagues to support them, we need to budget for substantially higher personnel expenses in the new business year. Tougher environmental standards demanding sustainable new solutions, for example modernising the vehicle fleet or using urban cargo bikes, entail additional costs and expenditure that will have to be offset by price adjustments. Other cost drivers are increased spending on energy provision and insurances and higher investment in IT infrastructure and IT security.
