Deutsche Post is working with ADAC, the German automobile association, on a plan to launch a bus network linking Germany’s most important urban centres.
The German bus market is due to be liberalised next year. Until now, long-distance buses could only be deployed on routes not covered by the public transport network.
Jürgen Gerdes, board member for Mail at Deutsche Post DHL, said: “Like no other company in Germany, Deutsche Post stands for nationwide presence and reliability. We also bring our know-how in transport and fleet management. This is an extremely strong base for success in the long-distance bus market. We are all the more pleased to be partnering with ADAC – a German institution that brings prestige and tremendous experience in the area of mobility.”
