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 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.

We plan to start domestic local volumes at the start of next year, 2021. In order to guarantee maximum freshness of your products, we are required to adjust our systems so that we can monitor the temperature from start to finish. Want to know more about DPD fresh? Pass us your contact details via this form. We are happy to hear about your plans and to maybe start our collaboration in 2021.
DPD fresh will be launched for delivery to businesses (shops, restaurants, caterers…) and private individuals (meal boxes…). For both target groups a Predict service (detailed info with a 1 hour timeframe) will be available. In order to guarantee the freshness of your products, we cannot deliver at a pick-up point or at a safe place.
By actively refrigerated network we mean refrigerated containers in the depots and active temperature control in the vehicles on road to delivery. That way, you as a client do not need to use expensive and in many cases polluting packaging material to store your goods at temperatures below 4°C until/during delivery. DPD fresh supports innovations in delivery of fresh foods in a sustainable way, whilst guaranteeing to uphold the cold chain.
Thank you for your interest in DPD fresh! You can use this form and enter your details; we will be in touch as soon as possible to go over your plans. Talk to you soon!
