Where is my parcel?

As myDPD user, you have always the possibility to track your parcels in the section  „Meine Pakete“. The parcel life history shows you the status of your parcel.

How can I receive my parcel safely?

Finde HERE all information about the contactless parcel delivery.

How it works:

The delivery driver rings at your door bell, deposits the parcel and steps back at least 1 meter. He asks for your name and enters the code "COV" into the signature field of his scanner. In a nutshell, an easy, safe and contactless delivery.

If we don't meet you at home, the well known processes remain in place (a parcel information at your door with the possibilities of all the parcel redirection options e.g. deposit okay, parcel shop, favorite neighbor ...).

Is it possible to pass on Covid-19 via a parcel?

As far as we know, a contagion with the Corona virus is highly unlikely over the contact with a parcel surface. Nevertheless, you can give us a deposit okay, thus the parcel delivery is completely contactless. The delivery driver deposits the parcel directly and without customer contact in, for example, your garden shed, your garage or the front door.

In case of contact to one of our delivery drivers, please keep the hygiene regulations in mind and keep at least 1,5m distance. If this is not possible, please wear a face mask, our delivery driver will also stick to it.

How can I send my parcel contactless?

Use one of our more than 60 parcel lockers, where you can send or return your parcel completely contactless 24/7.

Just register on myDPD and buy a digital parcel label, pay online and upload it to your smartphone.

Finde all the parcel lockers near you HERE.
