DPDgroup and PostNord plan to combine their shop network to create approximately 26,000 parcel drop-off and collection points throughout Europe. This includes DPD’s network of approximately 20,000 parcel shops across 10 countries, and PostNord’s network of 5,800 sites in the Nordic regions.
The partnership will also grant Nordic customers access to DPD’s Predict mobile-services solution, allowing them to control and customize their parcel deliveries. To further emphasize the new strategic direction, PostNord will feature DPD branding on 200 of its delivery trucks across Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Peter Kjaer Jensen, head of business area logistics, PostNord, said, “We’re extremely satisfied that we’re able to offer our customers a comprehensive and more robust offering for the European B2C market, which is being expanded with advanced service content on delivery.”
Christian Emery, deputy chairman of GeoPost, COO Europe of DPDgroup, said, “Our partnership, which is now acquiring additional advanced content, is a long and successful one. PostNord is the leading supplier of logistics and e-commerce services in the Nordic region, and through our partnership we can offer DPD’s customers access to 5,800 parcel shops in the Nordic countries.”
