GLS and DB Schenker begin parcel partnership in Germany
Tirsdag 12. april 2016 kl: 12:23
DB Schenker and the GLS Group are beginning their contractual partnership in Germany. In addition to securing new B2B customers, the partners also see potential for B2C customers through e-commerce
GLS will now deliver national parcels in Germany for the logistics affiliate of Deutsche Bahn and will handle international consignments. In return, DB Schenker will also transport part loads (pallets) for GLS customers in the future. This expansion means that the two companies are now working together in the parcel segment in four countries - they already collaborate in Denmark, Sweden and Austria.
- The Europe-wide GLS network gives customers new opportunities for parcel service, said Rico Back, CEO of the GLS Group.
- The start of collaboration in Germany is another milestone in the partnership between the two companies, he continued.
Operating processes and the IT interfaces between the partners were adapted ahead of time to ensure smooth processes and transparency.
- Our goal is for DB Schenker to offer Europe-wide parcel logistics through GLS, said Ewald Kaiser, Head of Land Transport at Schenker AG and CEO of the Europe region.
- We want to set up parcel services under our own brand to complete our product range in land transport, he added.
This means that DB Schenker's German customers can now consign everything to the logistics company, from individual parcels to full loads.
The master agreement for the strategic partnership at the European level, which the two companies signed in September 2015, was fleshed out in a European parcel cooperation agreement in February to clear the way for the partners to finally begin collaborating in Germany. The partners are already preparing to expand their non-exclusive collaboration to other countries.
