Deutsche Telekom has hailed a “mega deal” with Deutsche Post DHL as it looks to improve the fortunes of its enterprise division.
T-Systems will oversee the data centres, networks and workplace systems for the logistics and mail company as part of a five-year deal worth “hundreds of million of euros”.
Deutsche Post DHL is looking to migrate its existing IT platforms to the cloud and shift voice and data traffic to a “homogeneous” IP-based network, as part of the deal.
The contract also includes the provision of M2M, voice and data services from Deutsche Telekom, the telco said, alongside security tools.
Jürgen Gerdes, Board member of Deutsche Post DHL, said: “The collaboration with T-Systems ensures the stability and realignment of our IT systems.
“As the world’s leading logistics service provider, this is an absolute must for us.
“The agreement also helps us continue the journey we embarked upon a few years ago toward a consistent, integrated IT structure in the Group.”
The Deutsche Post DHL deal follows hot on the deals of a contract renewal T-Systems signed with Shell Information Technology International.
The global hosting and storage services deal with the global oil company subsidiary was announced last week.
Financial details were not disclosed.
T-Systems saw revenues fall 1.7 percent to €5.9 billion in the nine months to September 2016, its most recent financial results, which it pinned partly on a “general downward price trend in ICT business”.
