DPD is a fast-growing parcel delivery network whose initials stand for “Dynamic Parcel Distribution”. There are 6,000 pickup points across Germany and over 32,000 in 35 European countries. There are now 11,000 DPD Germany delivery drivers on the road each day, delivering 375 million parcels a year. DPD is the delivery partner of e-commerce brands ASOS, Home24 and Würth. DPD provides carbon-neutral shipping at no extra cost to the customer – part of the “DrivingChange” strategy. This also includes intelligent urban delivery solutions such as electric vehicles and bikes to reduce congestion, and innovative partnerships such as the ParcelLock joint venture with GLS and Hermes, allowing parcel boxes to be used by multiple courier brands. The new DPD Food delivery service launched with food box provider HelloFresh, using express delivery and precise one-hour delivery slots. It also now serves myTime and Gourmondo. The charitable DPD Foundation works with Plan International and supports DPD staff in need of assistance.
