The acquisition is in line with TNT’s Vision 2015 strategy announced in December 2009 in which TNT Post wants to become market leader in the full e-commerce chain. This starts with offering companies know how and data in the field of online marketing and e-retail, for example how to draw online customers to a web shop. The chain continues with managing and facilitating web shops and online payment, e-fulfillment, the physical delivery and customer service after delivery.
