1997 - The age of globalization dawns at Deutsche Post

Following the successful domestic restructuring of the company, Deutsche Post AG begins setting the course for global expansion. Globalization of business activities comes in response to the growing number of customers seeking a single service provider for their national and international shipping needs.

The strategy is to establish Deutsche Post internationally with targeted acquisitions, investments and partnering agreements as well as to steadily expand the market position through integrated services. Deutsche Post starts down the road to becoming the world's number one logistics service provider.
