Qantas and Australia Post have reconfigured their joint venture businesses Australian Air Express and Star Track Express, with the two organizations saying the new structure will better leverage the strengths of the two express freight brands “consolidating common functions to create two new businesses with distinct capabilities”. The changes involve a merger of the retail division of Australian air Express (AaE) with Star Track Express which focuses Star Track solely on the retail business, leaving AaE to concentrate solely on domestic air line haul and cargo terminal operations. The changes are to be rolled out over the next 12 months and stem from a business review conducted last year. “These changes set them on a clear path of focusing on their respective strengths and capabilities and we believe they will allow us to unlock the true value of our investments,” Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour said. “They operate in a highly competitive environment and, supported by a range of shared services, they will now be positioned to better meet customer needs and offer market leading domestic air line haul and integrated express freight solutions,” Qantas CEO Alan Joyce added.
