The carmaker says in a statement today the talks with JSC Russian Railways could see the Russian firm take a 75% in GEFCO, one of Europe's leading automotive logistics businesses.
PSA Peugeot Citroen says the deal would help GEFCO expand into China, India and Latin America, in addition to accelerating its growth in Eastern Europe and Russia.
Last year GEFCO made €3.7bn in sales. It employs 10,300 people and specialises in transport of parts and vehicles for the car industry.
