Direct items are slightly down by -1.3% on last year.
An increased postal cost of +4.45% on last year which is mainly due to our increased Bureau work over the last year along with an adjustment of exchange rate against the US dollar.
Our Bureau outgoing volume is counted from 01/01/2016 – 31/12/2016 at 58,512 bureau cards up 45.3% on 2015.
