According to Wikipedia:

PostNord AB is the name of the holding company of the two merged postal companies Posten AB and Post Danmark that were officially merged on 24 June 2009. The name of the group was changed 17 May 2011 from Posten Norden to PostNord.

President and CEO is Håkan Ericsson and Jens Moberg is the chairman. The former president and CEO, Lars Idermark, resigned in December 2012 to take up the same positions in the forest group Södra. The former chairman, Fritz Schur, left in April 2013.

The Swedish state is the majority share holder with 60% and the remaining 40% is held by the Danish state.[9] Voting rights are shared equally (50/50).

PostNord implemented a new organization in 2014 with three focus areas: Mail & Communication, logistics and e-commerce.

The logistics market in the Nordic region has had a relatively stable development. The Nordic logistics market that is relevant to PostNord equates to about SEK 150–190 billion. Demand for parcel services, the shipping of part and full loads and third-party logistics (TPL) has grown, while the trend for demand in Air & Ocean has been weaker.

PostNord operates in all the Nordic countries and Germany, and via its subsidiary Direct Link it also runs international operations in the form of distribution solutions for lightweight goods and it is part of the DPD network for global logistics solutions.”
