Press release from: Analytiqa

This week's Logistics Bulletin reports on news that Deutsche Bahn plans to take over the entire shares in English Welsh & Scottish Railway (EWS) and acquire a majority share in the Spanish company Transfesa, to close important gaps in the DB Logistics European rail freight network. Integration of the network is expected to lead to a noticeable boost in rail's market share of freight movements in Europe and raise product quality.

Supply chain technology features in this week's Bulletin, particularly in the retail sector, with developments reported at METRO and Waitrose, regarding RFID and transport management, respectively. Elsewhere, NOL is to order eight high-speed 10,000 TEU container ships to enhance APL's container shipping service offering, whilst Lufthansa Cargo is to transfer freighter flights in Germany, from Cologne to Leipzig.

Primary research with UK retailers by Analytiqa, released as a complimentary White Paper, identifies the environmental benefits and cost savings of a Port-based supply chain strategy and how this is already being adopted across the UK. Analytiqa's White Paper includes case studies of three organisations who have already implemented such a strategy - ASDA, BMB Group, Stiller Group.

Deutsche Bahn plans takeover of EWS and Transfesa

28 June 2007 - Following the approval of the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Bahn, the Company plans to take over the entire shares in English Welsh & Scottish Railway Holding Limited (EWS) and acquire a majority share in the Spanish company Transportes Ferroviarios Especiales (Transfesa). Once the contracts have been signed and the approval of the relevant authorities obtained, the acquisition of these two companies will consolidate DB’s leading position as a global player in the transport market, especially in the rail freight sector in Europe.

As a result of this move, DB Logistics will extend its central corridors in Western Europe and will be able to develop even better products for its customers as a one-stop shop.

Looking at the stagnant, loss-ridden rail freight transport markets in many European countries, Hartmut Mehdorn, CEO and Chairman of the Management Board of Deutsche Bahn claimed that de facto liberalisation of the rail network was a crucial requirement for growth and economically efficient operations. He pointed out that Germany was a perfect example of how open access to the network, which is used by more than 330 rail companies, could lead to a substantial increase in rail traffic, and added that DB AG would continue to encourage European liberalisation in future.

The acquisition of EWS and Transfesa will enable the Company to close important gaps in the DB Logistics rail freight network, to be better equipped in future to offer customers attractive products.

Following the takeover of the two companies, DB Logistics will have direct links to the transport and logistics markets in Western and Southern Europe, which will strengthen the south-west corridor. The integration is intended to lead to a noticeable boost in rail’s market share in Europe and raise product quality. The Company believes that DB Logistics, EWS and Transfesa complement each other, especially in the rail logistics, automotive, industrial and bulk goods segments.

Moreover, DB Logistics hopes that this acquisition will improve its business position in France, where EWS is already represented by its subsidiary Euro Cargo Rail. At the same time, DB’S avowed aim is to continue its close cooperation with SNCF, which is already successful in the single wagonload segment, and win a higher volume of transport for rail by offering attractive products.

EWS is the largest British freight railway and one of the largest freight transport companies in Europe. The operator specialises in wagonload transport in the energy industry, industrial freight and building materials segments. Its business activities in the UK and its emergent market position in France make EWS an excellent complement to DB Logistics. With a workforce of around 5,000, the Company generated revenues of approximately €770.0 million last year.

The Spanish company Transfesa is a global provider of transport and logistics services specialising in rail and road transports in the automotive, bulk goods and general cargo segments. The Company has around 1,100 employees and generated revenues of approximately €290.0 million last year.
