DPDgroup (La Poste) has taken a stake in Aramex. It's the latest acquisition by DPD / Geopost, and expands La Poste's reach even further.

Why would DPDgroup (Le Groupe La Poste) take a 24.9% stake in Aramex? Is it about opportunities in emerging markets? Is it in response to the size of Deutsche Post DHL? Marek Rozycki (former group CEO at DPD) and Ian Kerr discuss the recent announcement, including:

  • A short history of DPD’s acquisitions across Europe
  • Can DPD capitalise on Aramex’s global network?
  • Other pan-continental delivery networks
  • Integrating Aramex into the DPD network, or will there just be cooperation or even a JV?
  • Australia Post’s previous stakeholding in Aramex
  • Does DPD have a call option?
  • The importance of securing cross-border capacity
  • La Poste seeking to grow outside Europe
