GO! increases prices for 2017 by an average of 2.8 %
Bonn, 14 December 2016. In the coming year, express courier services provider GO! will be adjusting its prices by an average of 2.8 %. Increasing production costs across the industry as well as an increased level of investment within the GO! network are the reason for this measure.
Increasing shipment volume requires expansion of distribution centres
Comprehensive investments in infrastructure and the increase in external requirements on the courier and delivery industry are forcing GO! Express & Logistics to make a slight adjustment to its prices in some areas. At an average of 2.8 %, these are small but unavoidable to enable the same high level of service and transport quality for customers of the global express network. ‘For the third year in a row, we are seeing significant growth in the number of shipments, which has led us to preemptively expand our capacities. In addition to significant expansion of our sorting capacities, the HR department in particular requires increased investment,’ says Ulrich Nolte, managing director of GO! Express & Logistics. ‘Some of these costs, which also include the strain on the industry as a whole, unfortunately have to be passed on to the customer, so that we can continue to offer innovative and tailored logistics solutions,’ Nolte continues.
GO! will be investing a figure in the tens of millions in the expansion and renovation of its stations, the central hub in Niederaula (Hesse) and the regional hubs in Cologne, Heilbronn and Hanover; in Gera, a new regional hub will enter operations. At the same time, the express courier services provider is strengthening its service portfolio with the addition of global time-critical shipments.
