Deutsche Post DHL Group and Austrian Post enter into a long-term partnership

Deutsche Post DHL Group has entered into a long-term partnership with Austrian Post. Under the agreement, Austrian Post will deliver parcels sent by DHL customers to Austria. The agreement is still subject to review by the German and Austrian competition authorities. Once the partnership has been approved, the collaboration is expected to launch in 2019.

The collaboration will allow both parties to jointly tap the potential of the growing cross-border e-commerce business.

“The expansion of our parcel business in Europe is proceeding successfully. This has culminated in a very attractive agreement which enables us and Austrian Post to strengthen and accelerate our growth in Austria and beyond. 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,” said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group.
