PostCon to restructure headquarters with loss of 140 jobs

PostCon, the German mail company owned by Dutch postal operator PostNL, is restructuring its head office with plans to cut 140 jobs. The company known as TNT Post Germany until last year will be closing its administrative offices in Berlin and Hanover, it said this week.

Restructuring will see more corporate management and sales operations shifted to the company’s headquarters in Ratingen, near Düsseldorf.

PostCon said it expected to increase its staff levels at its headquarters as a result, adding around 70 jobs to the current 130 staff working at the Ratingen office.

The company said bundling its management operations would mean strengthening systems, allowing for more focus on customer needs. It will also help cut costs while maintaining service quality, PostCon suggested.

Dr. Rüdiger Gottschalk, the CEO of PostCon Germany, said: “We will only secure the future of PostCon in the long term by finding the right balance between the needs of our customers, our quality and our costs, achieving profitable volume growth.”

PostCon said its plan was to invest in its services, brand and employees, while making structural and organisational adjustments to adapt to market conditions.

The company said it had a market share of around 8% in Germany, providing one of the largest alternative mail services in a country dominated by Deutsche Post.
