Approximately two years ago, a new Trustee was appointed to Aras Kargo by the courts as a result of disputes between the Aras Family and Austrian Post Office.

At the basis of the dispute between the shareholders was the claim of investments aimed at the growth of the company not being made, the value of the company being intentionally lowered by Austrian Post Office, and an attempt at wearing down Aras Kargo.
