  • Geodis vend Extand à la poste britannique
    Le groupe français Geodis et la poste britannique (The Post Office) ont signé un accord portant sur la cession ' après rachat des intérêts des minoritaires ' de 100% des titres de sa filiale Extand (basée à Toulouse). La conclusion de la vente est prévue avant la fin du premier semestre. Théoriquement, Extand était un partenaire idéal pour La Poste française, avec laquelle Geodis'a signé en mars un pré-accord de participation croisée. Certains estiment dès lors que cet accord pourrait être rendu caduc. Toutefois, il apparaît également qu'une intégration d'Extand dans Chronopost, le service "petit colis" de La Poste, aurait créé une trop grande capacité excédentaire.
