Welcome to the DPD City Hub
The innovation project DPD City Hub has been awarded with the Hermes.Logistik.Preis 2017.
As Austria’s leading private parcel service provider we set a strong example for innovative logistics in the urban space with our DPD City Hubs in Vienna, Linz and Salzburg.
For the first time a private parcel service provider in Austria opens up a parcel shop which is managed by the parcel service provider itself. In addition to the Pickup parcel shop function the City Hub fulfills the task of a local hub and warehouse location as well.
The aim of the first City Hub is to store the parcels locally and temporarily, to later on deliver them environmentally friendly and with low noise and low CO2 emissions with an electric powered delivery bicycle and an electric transporter. That way DPD lives up to its social, ecological and supply responsibilities and takes an active part in designing solutions for the urban logistics structure.
DPD developed the City Hub within the project EMILIA (Electric Mobility for Innovative Freight Logistics in Austria), a triennial flagship project of the Climate and Energy Fund.
City Hub and Pickup Parcelshop
Our City Hub provides all services of a DPD Pickup parcel shop: In addition to the parcel drop off and pick up, it is possible to divert a parcel to the City Hub using the parcel navigator and to track the parcel delivery online with live-tracking until it arrives at the shop. Parcels can also be returned at the City Hub. And all this at attractive opening hours.
