Growth was strongest for the post’s e-commerce logistics subsidiary in the US, Radial, where new customer wins drove a 13% increase in revenue. Meanwhile, the post reported stable revenue for parcels, with a drop in domestic B2X and cross-border volumes towards the end of the year in part offset by improved pricing.
