Austrian Post will deliver parcels sent by DHL customers to Austria under a new agreement signed with Deutsche Post DHL Group.
The long-term partnership, which is still subject to review by the German and Austrian competition authorities, has no impact on the group’s business activities in international express, freight transport and supply chain solutions in Austria.
Frank Appel, chief executive of Deutsche Post DHL Group, said: “The agreement is a further step towards improving our quality and productivity in the European parcel business.”
He added: “We will be exploring additional collaboration opportunities with Austrian Post in the future as we continue to focus on developing our international e-commerce business as a key growth driver for our group.”
Georg Pölzl, ceo of Austrian Post, said: “We are delighted to have Deutsche Post DHL Group as our partner. Our nationwide delivery throughout Austria stands for quality and reliability. Pick-up stations, self-service zones, reception boxes and the features of our app are unique and are very well received by our customers.”
