Delticom AG and Allyouneed Fresh go together

Hanover, 27 September 2018 – Delticom AG (German Securities Code (WKN) 514680, ISIN DE0005146807, stock market symbol DEX), Europe’s leading online retailer of tyres and automotive accessories as well as efood specialist and expert in the field of efficient warehouse logistics, is expanding its product range in the efood segment with the acquisition of Allyouneed Fresh. With the acquisition of Gourmondo and Lebensmittel.de in 2016, the company entered the online food trade.

With Allyouneed Fresh, Delticom acquires an innovative online supermarket based in Berlin. Customers can choose from over 20,000 articles at allyouneedfresh.de. This makes the offer almost three times as large as that of a conventional supermarket. Everything is offered from one source, from ordering to purchasing the goods from industry to delivery. A large part of the range consists of certified organic products and thus offers a wide choice for consumers who value ecological aspects.

“With Allyouneed Fresh, we are adding a strong brand to our product portfolio in the online food sector,” says Andreas Prüfer, CEO of Delticom AG, “The acquisition will enable us to offer our customers an even broader range of products in the future. Thanks to our small items warehouse logistics, we are able to process customer orders quickly and cost-effectively. With DHL, we have a reliable partner for professional shipping to our customers”.

With this acquisition, Delticom acquired all shares in All you need GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Post DHL Group. Both parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The proportion of food sold online in Germany is still comparatively low: currently, less than 2 % of the food turnover of around ? 200 billion is targeted online. In other European countries, such as France or Great Britain, the online share is already significantly higher at 6 to 8 %. However, experts expect a steady development in Germany. According to a recent study, 40 % of German consumers plan to buy food online in the next 12 months. A major obstacle for online food retailers at present is the cost-effective and efficient handling of logistics. Delticom operates a highly modern and almost fully automated small item warehouse that meets these requirements in the best possible way.

Since its foundation in 1999, Delticom as an E-Commerce company has steadily expanded its extensive industrial expertise in the tyre trade by establishing online shops. This led to the acquisition of in-depth know-how in the areas of cross-border online sales, Internet customer acquisition, Internet marketing and efficient warehouse and delivery logistics. The company has successively expanded its core competencies to other product areas: first to car parts, then food with a focus on gourmet items and at the end of 2016 to online used car trade in France.
