La Poste to invest €8bn in business growth and acquisitions up to 2020 | Global Logistics Trends and News | Scoop.it

La Poste will invest about EUR 6bn in its business and set aside EUR 2bn for acquisitions over the next six years, it said last week.

Philippe Wahl, chairman and chief executive of the French national postal operator, presented plans to the board on Thursday for how he will push the company to achieve a EUR 25bn turnover by 2020, year-on-year growth of 2% and a group operating profit of EUR 1.9bn excluding the impact of acquisitions.

The plan called for the acceleration of the company’s development of its current business and the expansion into “new territories”.
