More than 30m registered drivers [sic!] and activities in currently 14 markets worldwide: A ride-hailing service wishing to compete in the logistics business with such resources is something that needs to be taken seriously. News service Bloomberg has reported (26 January) that Didi Chuxing Technology Co. is close to closing a 1.5bn dollar funding round for its on-demand trucking business.

According to the report, investors including Singapore's Temasek Holdings Pte, Jack Ma's Yunfeng Capital and IDG Capital have participated in the funding of Didi Freight, an Uber-like trucking service. Didi launched its on-demand logistics service in Chengdu and Hangzhou in June 2020 and has already expanded to 8 other Chinese cities since then. On average, more than 100,000 orders are processed daily. 

Didi already has rudimentary experience in the logistics business. For example, the company already offers the DiDi Delivery Service in 30 cities worldwide.

Otto Group has found an investor for Hermes. As the group announced on Monday this week, the investment company Advent International will take over 25% of the shares in Hermes Germany and a 75% stake in Hermes UK. According to the announcement, the agreement with the private equity company has already been signed.

Advent's shareholding also includes other subsidiaries of Hermes Germany, Borderguru and Liefery (CEP News 30/15) as well as the share in the parcel locker joint venture Parcellock (CEP News 36/15). Hermes' activities in Russia, France ('Mondial Relay') and Austria, the holding company Hermes Europe and the companies not involved in parcel delivery (Hermes Fulfilment, Hermes Einrichtungs Service, Girard Agediss, Hansecontrol and Otto International) are not affected by the partnership.

According to Otto Executive Board member Kay Schiebur, the partnership gives both companies 'further scope for important investments and thus creates optimal conditions for further growth'. The amount of the investment has not been announced. Market observers agree that Advent has taken a stake in the loss-making German business (CEP News 24/20) in order to be able to take over the majority of the profitable business in the UK.
