DPD has launched new service ParcelLetter, which delivers parcels, letters and other items via the letterbox and, unlike other DPD delivery services, does not require a signature.
The new service is aimed at parcels for which the delivery driver does not necessarily have to ring the recipient’s doorbell. Parcels can still be fully tracked through track-and-trace and the DPD predict service is included as standard.
DPD is initially targeting ParcelLetter at the SME and consumer markets, and it is currently only offered in the Netherlands as a pilot via the online shipping platform www.pakkettenversturen.nl.
In the near future, DPD will also offer the service for shipments to other European countries, enabling consumers and businesses to internationally send parcels, catalogs, samples and letters via DPD Netherlands.
Eric Dietz, CEO of DPD Netherlands, commented, “With our new ParcelLetter service we want to further expand our service delivery. As a result of the enormous e-commerce growth, the need for letterbox delivery of small parcels at a favorable price is increasing, and with ParcelLetter we are able to respond to this market demand.”
