Omni-channel shipping solution for retailers.
With StoreConnect+ you can use your stores as collection points. This enables you to offer consumers an extra delivery option: in your store, at an address of their choice, or at one of 1,600 Pickup parcel shops in the Benelux. You organise all of the transport chains (simple to do) and send parcels to your stores in the blink of an eye.
The DPD network includes 1,500 Pickup parcel shops in the Benelux. Once you add your own stores to this list, you are offering your customers genuine ease of use. If you wish we can add your stores to the map showing the available Pickup parcelshops. If you would prefer your customers to collect and return their parcels at one of your own stores, we can deactivate the Pickup parcelshops near your stores.
We want to make life convenient not only for your customers, but also for your employees. It is very simple to implement DPD StoreConnect+. Furthermore, we provide training and support for your in-store staff. If you wish, we can equip your store with convenient DPD hand-held computers (PDAs). Connecting the DPD software with your own data provides you with a better overview of your sales and inventory levels.
The shop-in-a-shop concept significantly increases the chances of your customer finding something they need in store. Your store is effectively acting as an extension of the central warehouse. Items are sent from the warehouse immediately, e.g. when a given size or colour has run out. As such, you will never have to disappoint your customer. At most, they will have to contend with a short waiting period. In fact, the delay is minimal thanks to the DPD network. This also applies to online sales, thus ensuring that shopping carts are filled up sooner.
The short distances between the different collection locations keep transport costs down. Orders do not always need to be fulfilled from the central warehouse. Instead, they can be supplied from the closest shop with the ordered items in stock. This is good for both your budget and the environment. Cutting down on CO2 emissions reduces your ecological footprint. In addition, items that are returned return to circulation more quickly thanks to DPD Click & Collect Plus.
All of the logistic chains between your central warehouse, your stores, the consumer at home and the Pickup parcel shops are consolidated and delivered by DPD. This guarantees efficient distribution. Your store can also become an exclusive Pickup parcel shop where your consumers go to collect their parcels. Items can also be returned rapidly via your stores or the Pickup parcel shop network using DPD StoreConnect+.
Many customers shop in both your webshop and your physical store. With DPD StoreConnect+, we create the same experience both online and offline. This enables you to reach customers more quickly and efficiently through the channel of their choice. Using the shop-within-a-shop principle, your store staff become a more involved in online sales. A customer who comes to collect or return an order may well be looking for an extra accessory, or may take a quick look around while they are in the shop.
