If we deliver your parcel to a Pickup parcelshop there could be a number of reasons for this:
The consignor has instructed us to deliver the parcel to a Pickup parcelshop (DPD Shop2Shop)
You have specified the Pickup parcelshop as the place of delivery with our customer service, in myDPD or in our app.
We were unable to locate you at home and you have not specified a different place or day for the delivery. In this case we wish to make sure nevertheless that you receive your parcel as quickly as possible, and we therefore deliver it to a Pickup parcelshop in your neighbourhood, where you can pick it up during the shop's opening hours.
You can find out the Pickup parcelshop to which your parcel has been delivered in myDPD, in our app, from the delivery email in your mailbox or from the parcel notification card in your letterbox.
Our Pickup parcelshop Finder will enable you to find DPD shops in your area. Simply enter your location or postcode into the search function in order to find out the name, address and the opening times of the stores. Our top tip: if you share your location with us in our app your local Pickup parcelshop will be displayed to you automatically.
Our drivers make two delivery attempts as standard. if the consignee is not present at the address, the driver will leave a note in the letterbox. The driver will then attempt to deliver the parcel again on the next working day. If the consignee is absent once again, the driver will leave another note in the letterbox. The note explains how the consignee can obtain the parcel.
This is the 14-digit parcel number that you received from the sender or that is stated in the email or SMS from DPD containing the details of your scheduled delivery. If you were unable to accept delivery of your package, the driver will leave a note in your letterbox which also contains this 14-digit number.
If the contents of the parcel are damaged when they reach you, you should first contact the consignor. We can only investigate the case and inspect the damage on the instructions of the consignor.
If the status of the parcel tracking has not changed for several days, please get in touch with our team. We will then be happy to support you.
