For us the future has already begun. New ideas and the entrepreneurial spirit have given us pioneering status on the parcels market. We work unceasingly on developing new solutions and keep a close eye on the start-up scene in order to continue the optimisation of our business model with useful innovations. We also promote best practice within our own group, and motivate our staff to cooperate actively in shaping its future.
Universal-access parcel box system
DPD has established ‘ParcelLock’ as a joint venture with the parcel services GLS und Hermes. ParcelLock represents an option which is so far unique on the parcel market, in that it offers a parcel box system which is not restricted to individual service providers.
DPD is the main investor in the start-up tiramizoo, a prominent service provider on the ‘same day’ market of the future. Thanks to its cooperation with tiramizoo DPD is able to offer customers in a large number of cities same-day delivery within only 90 minutes.
Cooperation with universities
In cooperation with universities and academies of applied science we provide students with opportunities for obtaining concrete experience of logistics operations. For example, within the framework of its Logistics Laboratory DPD annually presents awards for the best project ideas which students have developed together with DPD experts.
