European post operations at Brussels airport in the 1980s

Brussels was a big freight hub in the 1980s for Fedex but also for mail operations. I am trying to remember what the name of the client was and I think that it may have been European Datapost. I remember doing flights to there on behalf of Royal Mail in 1988 and I had my photograph taken one evening by a publicity photographer. Would any of you be able to tell me more about this operation please?

I've tried searching online but found nothing regarding "European Datapost".

Your not getting confused with Deutsche Post which later acquired DHL.

Datapost was a Royal Mail brand and there is also EMS(Express Mail Services). The cargo shed was on the north side of Brussels airport and Fedex had theirs in the middle.
