products and its experienced and committed team. The unique shareholding partnership with DPDgroup and Japan Post in recent years has demonstrated the value of the Lenton

proposition, as well as the potential of the partners’ combination in providing real end-to-end express solutions.”

Paul-Marie Chavanne, President and CEO of DPDgroup further commented “As a leader in the e-commerce sector, and last-mile distribution, especially throughout Europe, DPDgroup’s

acquisition of the majority shareholding in Lenton will further accelerate the company’s development of innovative products and e-commerce solutions while strengthening the

Group’s capabilities in the management of cross-border for our clients.”
