The crisis does not only create bankruptcies and some companies take advantage of this to break records. This is the case of Bpost, which has had to deal with an explosion in the number of parcels for a year. If we observed an increase in the number of packages of the order of 20.9% in 2019, we went to an increase of 56.2% in 2020. And in view of the different quarters, we see that this is good the Covid-19 which accelerated the changes in consumption habits of Belgians since from January to March, this increase was 25.2%. For the following three months, it rose to 79.3%, against 49% and 67.4% respectively for the following two quarters. Clearly, confinements have boosted Bpost’s activities, not to mention the end-of-year celebrations which were those of all records.

In addition, Bpost employed 38,639 people, including interim staff, at the end of the year, compared to 35,377 at the end of 2019 (+ 9.2%).
