GeoPost / DPDgroup becomes the majority shareholder of TIPSA
GeoPost / DPDgroup becomes the majority shareholder of TIPSA, a company specialized in express transport.
This agreement allows the international group to strengthen its value proposition in Spain and its ambition in the healthcare sector. GeoPost/ DPDgroup, which is also the majority shareholder of SEUR since 2012, will maintain both brands that will operate independently with their current management teams, a model implemented in other European countries. In 2019, both companies already announced the entry of the GeoPost / DPDgroup into the capital of the company.
According to Yves Delmas, COO of GeoPost / DPDgroup in Europe and Chairman of SEUR and TIPSA,
“TIPSA's quality of service and innovation capacity are some of the most outstanding attributes of this important company. Their role during the pandemic has been fundamental and their value-added solutions, such as services for the health sector, will be strengthened. The complementarity of both companies, TIPSA and SEUR, is undoubtedly synonymous with growth. With this objective, Alberto Navarro, CEO of GeoPost / DPDgroup in Spain, will be responsible for the coordination and development of both companies”.
From her side, María Luisa Camacho, CEO of TIPSA, believes that
“Thanks to this progress, TIPSA will be able to continue developing its international capacity, as well as implementing innovative solutions and reinforce its commitment to sustainability hand in hand with GeoPost / DPDgroup . We are very proud of being part of this leading group, a guarantee for the future for our network”.
