DHL will no longer deliver groceries for AmazonFresh in Germany, which launched in Germany in 2017.

A spokeswoman commented in a report in Germany’s Lebensmittel Zeitung trade publication: “The market for online ordered fresh food has been far behind expectations to date. Due to this reason and the complexity of the whole process, we have significantly reduced our activities in this area”. The rest of DHL’s business with Amazon remains unaffected.
