Partnership between Germany and Austria
Deutsche Post DHL Group has formed a partnership with Austrian Post. Under the agreement, which is still subject to review by the German and Austrian competition authorities, Austrian Post will deliver parcels sent by DHL customers to Austria. Once the partnership has been approved, the collaboration is expected to begin in 2019.
“The expansion of our parcel business in Europe is proceeding successfully, culminating in a cooperation which enables us and Austrian Post to strengthen and accelerate our growth in Austria and beyond. We will continue to focus on developing our international e-commerce business as a key growth driver for our group,” said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group.
The agreement has no impact on the group’s business activities in international express, freight transport and supply chain solutions in Austria. (mw)
