Goods logistics is a growing market, especially in view of the rising importance of online retail. For many business customers – from machine manufacturers to online shops – Swiss Post handles the entire logistics process from A to Z. This means it is not only responsible for the delivery of goods, but also offers customs clearance services and installation services for furniture stores, for example. For these services, Swiss Post requires skilled workers and expertise, among other things, to help it plan its various assignments. Swiss Post acquired a full stake in the IT service provider Eoscop as of 4 October 2022 in order to achieve improvements in this area. Eoscop develops specific digital applications that are required in modern logistics. The company employs 20 people in Balsthal (SO).

Good planning is the key to smooth logistics

Behind every service that Swiss Post offers its business customers lies high-quality planning. This includes software for handling customs clearance, tools for organizing international transport and for delivering spare parts to technology companies. In recent years, Eoscop has developed numerous and highly specific applications with and for Swiss Post’s goods logistics. This means Swiss Post is already Eoscop’s largest customer. Johannes Cramer, Head of Logistics Services at Swiss Post, is pleased that the logistics software specialist will now be fully owned and integrated into Swiss Post’s organization: “Eoscop understands perfectly what we need. We’ve been working together for many years. The acquisition provides us with an important tool for standardizing our planning software across the entire goods logistics sector. By having Eoscop’s specialists under one roof, we can also respond even faster to the specific requirements of our business customers.”

Employment contracts for the staff affected to remain unchanged

Eoscop will continue to operate as an independent subsidiary of Swiss Post. The employment relationships of the employees will remain unchanged. Eoscop had been seeking a buyer as part of succession planning. The parties involved have agreed to maintain confidentiality over the details of the acquisition.
