During the second quarter of 2013 (Q2/2013) Zalando increased its net sales to 437 million EUR. Compared to 257 million EUR net sales in the second quarter of 2012, Zalando’s revenues have grown by more than 70%.

For the first half of 2013, Zalando reported net sales of 809 million EUR compared to the first half of 2012 with net sales of 471 million EUR. Drivers for this year’s growth include the continued progress in the company’s established markets as well as the addition of four new markets since the first half of 2012.

Zalando also continues to invest in its operational excellence in key areas including infrastructure to further strengthen the long-term development of the company. The online retailer recently launched the test phase for its third self-operated fulfilment centre in Mönchengladbach, Germany. In addition, Zalando opened two new office sites in Berlin this year, which are housing its fashion, technology and operations teams.
