Successful cooperation now enhanced by an assertive B2C strategy
DPD and PostNord are expanding their strategic partnership in parcel operations. The core of the expanded cooperation is an assertive B2C strategy which, for example, will link the parcel networks of the two partners, creating a harmonised shop network of 26,000 locations in Europe. In addition part of the PostNord delivery fleet will in the future feature the DPD brand in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
PostNord is entrusting to DPD its international parcel volumes shipped from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland to the rest of Europe. In international shipping this provides PostNord’s customers access to the DPD parcel shop network of more than 20.000 locations in 10 countries across Europe, where parcels can be both collected and returned. It also encompasses new mobile services that enable consumers to control and customise their deliveries. The DPD ‘Predict’-solution will now be available to European consumers also on parcels sent from the Nordics.
PostNord is the leading supplier of logistics and eCommerce services in the Nordic region, and through the partnership DPD can offer it’s customers access to 5,800 parcel shops in the Nordic countries.
The importance of this partnership, which has grown steadily since it was initiated in 2002, will also make a visual impact in Scandinavia. By the end of the year part of the PostNord fleet will bring the DPD name to the roads of Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, with DPD branding on 200 PostNord delivery vehicles reflecting the new dimensions of the Europe-wide delivery service.
