Deutsche Post DHL Group membership fees in 2014: 470,862 €.
NOTE: This sum is not included in the estimated costs attributable to activities covered by the Transparency Register (b).

Furthermore, the above mentioned membership fees suffer from the issue of ‘double counting’ within the EU Transparency Register as certain associations dealing with EU Affairs are also registered by themselves. Consequently, the cumulated amount of membership fees paid by Deutsche Post DHL Group is not representative.
