Having successfully sold its parcel and mail business to the Körber group, Siemens
Logistics continues to focus on flexible products and solutions for airport baggage and
freight handling, with a particular emphasis on automation and digitalisation.

“We’re delighted that our parcel business – and above all our former Siemens Parcel
Logistics employees – have found a sustainable new home at Körber. The
complementary technologies of Körber and Siemens Parcel Logistics, together with the
regional structures, are a perfect fit and lay a solid entrepreneurial foundation for the
future,” said Michael Reichle, CEO of Siemens Logistics, and former CEO of Siemens
Parcel Logistics.

The airport logistics solutions business remains at Siemens AG and will continue to
operate as an independent subsidiary within the corporate group.

“We’re seeing a distinct uptick in demand for air travel. After the last two years, airport
operators are now on the lookout for solutions that will boost their overall efficiency
while still being fast and flexible to implement. We’re in an ideal position here with our
portfolio of high-performance hardware and intelligent, cloud-based software combined
with our international presence,” explains Reichle. “It enables us to offer targeted support to our customers as their businesses continue to recover strongly.”

Siemens Logistics is one of the world’s leading airport logistics providers, for baggage
and freight handling as well as integrated airport digitalisation solutions. Its portfolio
