General Motors to transfer European logistics to Gefco

Late last month week Opel Chief Executive Karl-Friedrich Stracke said the alliance between Opel’s parent company General Motors (GM.N) and Peugeot would now also include a cooperation between Opel and Gefco, Peugeot’s car delivery group.

It is part of a broader alliance struck between GM and Peugeot in February, which the two companies hope will lead to at least $2 billion in annual savings from shared purchasing, logistics and the joint development and production of vehicles and parts.
