No more waiting and uncertainty! With Predict your customers are notified on the day of delivery about the exact hour when their parcel will arrive.

Our options at a glance:

On request we make deliveries with DPD CLASSIC and Express-Service throughout Germany - and consignees are delighted when their shipment is delivered directly to the relevant department or area of the building. 

Product claims or guarantee cases are no problem with DPD. We collect the replacement goods from you, exchange them at the consignee’s premises and return the faulty products either to you or to any other specified address in Germany. The advantages: your customers aren’t kept waiting and you have efficient control over your goods movements.

Delivery of business parcels on Saturday? No problem! With our  DPD 12:00 Express-Service your delivery will arrive right on time - not just Monday to Friday but also on Saturday. By 12 hrs at the latest. Deliveries are made throughout Germany (except for islands and customs exclaves). Parcels are picked up on the previous day. 

Not to be mistaken: Saturday delivery of parcels to private consignees is part of our standard service.

We deliver a large number of classified types of hazardous goods almost anywhere in the country in accordance with ADR regulations on hazardous goods. We also transport ADR-classified hazardous goods by road throughout Europe if they are packed in limited quantities and labelled in accordance with LQ (limited quantities) regulations.

If your DPD CLASSIC parcel needs to arrive fast and on a specific day, then our Guarantee-Service is exactly what you need.

We ensure priority treatment of your parcels along the entire transport route and delivery on the specified day from Monday to Friday in many European countries.

With DPD each of your parcels is insured up to a goods value of 520 €. This is automatic – you don't need to do a thing. 

For valuable shipments our contract customers can even take advantage of higher insurance of up to 13,000 € per parcel.

If you wish to ensure that your parcel reaches the right consignee, we offer an ID check as part of the Express-Service within Germany. Delivery is made only to the person specified by you, against presentation of identifying documents (ID card, passport or driving licence). The delivery is of course documented within the system by means of parts of the identification number, making it easy for you to check.

When a parcel needs to be collected but there's no hurry, you can use our convenient Collection-upon-delivery service. When he makes his next delivery the DPD driver simply collects the parcel which is to be returned. You provide your customer with the relevant Collection-upon-delivery parcel label, which you receive from your depot. There you will also receive detailed information about our Collection-upon-delivery option.

If you wish to be on the safe side when it comes to payment transactions, we recommend our C.O.D. service. It's simple and fast –  and if anything goes wrong you are protected by automatic insurance to the level of the indicated C.O.D. amount.

Within Germany you can send DPD CLASSIC or Express parcels as C.O.D. shipments.

We offer cross-border C.O.D. shipping to the following countries:
