According to information from »manager-magazin«, Deutsche Post is interested in taking over the rail logistics subsidiary Schenker.

It would be the really big and German solution, they said.

In association with Schenker, the forwarding division of the post office would be the clear market leader worldwide.

The fact that otherwise competitors such as Maersk or the Danish freight forwarder DSV could otherwise acquire Schenker also plays a role in the considerations of the post office.

The Deutsche Bahn Supervisory Board is meeting this Thursday.

According to circles, it should also be about the future of Schenker.

A sale of the financially strong division has been discussed for years.

Post shares were down more than two percent in the first few minutes of trading, which is probably mainly due to a negative comment from analysts.

Analyst Samuel Bland from Bank JPMorgan expects the group to lower its medium-term targets when presenting the annual figures for 2022.
