DPD stopt na het huidige Eredivisieseizoen als shirtsponsor van Willem II. De pakkettenvervoerder is dan zeven seizoenen lang rugsponsor geweest. Wel verlengt DPD het sponsorschap, maar dan als business partner.
Trots op samenwerking
Dat DPD voor een achtste jaar bij Willem II gaat, doet algemeen directeur Berry van Gool goed: ‘DPD heeft ons altijd ondersteund. Zowel in sportieve als financieel moeilijke tijden.
Daarvoor zijn we DPD zeer dankbaar en we zijn dan ook trots en verheugd dat we onze goede samenwerking met een jaar hebben verlengd. Dat er nu ruimte ontstaat op ons mooie shirt, is een kans voor huidige én potentiële sponsoren om zich te etaleren.’
Blijven als business partner
Eric Dietz, CEO DPD Nederland: ‘Na zeven bevlogen jaren is het nu een goed moment om te veranderen. Onze betrokkenheid bij en samenwerking met Willem II doet ons veel plezier en heeft veel naamsbekendheid opgeleverd waardoor we graag betrokken blijven als business partner. Bovendien zijn er onder ons personeel een hoop Willem II-fans bij gekomen dus we blijven altijd supporter!’

On 9 December, a Children's Glass House will be opening in the centre of Hattem, where three young DJs – Emily, Samuel and Coen – will be performing to raise money for 3FM Serious Request. The enterprising trio used their Children's Glass House idea to take part in ‘Together Hattem' and won the first prize of €1000. DPD will be contributing to this unique event by providing a Special Container.
A Special Container is a used swap body that is converted into a unique item by professional designers and interior architects at the end of its operational life. National charity organisations can use this Special Container for their events.
This time the Special Container will be used for the Glass Children's Glass House in Hattem. Read the interview with the three DJs at:

The DPD plug-in is now available in the Shopify AppStore.This means that Belgian and Dutch businesses that use the Shopify platform can integrate the Pickup solution easily and without the intervention of a third party. This enables businesses and webshops to offer customers even more convenience.
The Canadian Shopify is one of the world's largest ecommerce software supplier and comparable to SEOshop and Magento. More than 250,000 webshops have now signed up to the platform. Shopify allows you to build your own webshop without too much technical knowledge and is known for its simplicity and clarity. Security is also a key element. Needless to say, Shopify also offers payment options for the Dutch market such as iDeal – for example, via Mollie.
DPD has responded to the popularity of Shopify by developing a plug-in that can be easily applied to any website or webshop that has been set up with Shopify.
A number of advantages of this plug-in are listed below:
- Webshop customers can choose from home delivery, collection from a Pickup parcel shop or collection from the shop itself;
- Search and select Pickup parcel shops via Google Maps map view;
- Connection to DPD’s European Pickup network;
- User-friendly English management environment;
- And: free for DPD customers.
The first customers have already signed up: among others, the webshop of De Gele Flamingo uses DPD’s plug-in. Creator of the webshop, Sophie Claes, explains her conviction: “Due to the growth in order numbers, we need to be able to process our parcels faster. DPD’s plug-in currently enables us to send 30-40% more parcels. With the busy months ahead, this is a huge advantage for us and for our customers.”
DPD, the leader in cross-border road parcel delivery, strongly believes in the use of low-CO² vehicles and is fully committed to sustainable and innovative transport methods. Together with its carriers and Scania, DPD is therefore exploring environmentally friendly solutions, a good example of which is the recent purchase of a Scania Euro 6 LNG powered truck by both VLI in Scharsterbrug and RUTOM Cargo from Helmond.
Through an extensive CSR program, DPD aims to achieve significant CO² reduction targets, thus contributing to improving the environment. "Most of our CO² emissions are the result of carrier mileage, so it makes sense that we focus on it," says Peter Tuijtelaars, Quality, Security & Sustainability Coordinator at DPD in the Netherlands. "We believe biogas has an important role to play as it helps reduce CO² by around 80 percent. Further gains can be achieved by deploying Ecocombis or LHVs. The best solution is an LHV powered by biogas, and the challenge is to create a convincing business case for this type of vehicle. That's where Scania’s contribution was essential as they can supply both the vehicles and they know market. Smooth cooperation with our carriers is also crucial as sustainable transport can only become a reality through a lasting relationship with our carriers."
Both carriers see great opportunities for the deployment of Scania’s LNG trucks. Both RUTOM Cargo and VLI operate in two shifts. "This allows us to also utilise truck and trailers internationally," says Director Tom van den Broek of RUTOM Cargo. VLI wishes to do the same. Director Douwe Noppert explains: "We are already doing a lot of overseas mileage for DPD and obviously the greatest CO² reduction is achieved by driving as many as possible on LNG." The LNG trucks have a driving range in excess of 700km, which is more than sufficient for the work that the two carriers have in mind.
The Netherlands is a real export country and many of its entrepreneurs have international ambitions and want to capitalise on cross border developments. DPD has extensive experience in cross-border transport and makes use of a solid international network of strong, national experts. DPD therefore knows the importance of cross-border business better than anyone.
By supporting the Cross Border Event, DPD offers entrepreneurs with international ambitions the opportunity to broaden and deepen their cross -border knowledge. The event takes place on 7 September in Utrecht, the Netherlands. With interesting presentations by cross-border experts and round table discussions on the many aspects of cross-border traffic you can catch up on the latest developments in a day.
Visit the website: http://crossborderevent.nl/
During the event we will also announce the Cross Border Top 30, a list of the 30 fastest growing companies with overseas e-commerce sales of at least € 100,000 and a sales growth of at least 20% in the previous year.
Together with partner Dexport, DPD provides a platform for a number of participants of the Cross Border Top 30 to share their knowledge about cross-border. Five participants share their success factors and tips in short video interviews.
These can be viewed on the DPD YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/DPDNLPakketservice
Expertise van o.a. Salesupply, DPD, Under Armour, Prins Petfoods en Noppies ondersteunt ondernemers bij toegang tot Franse en Spaanse markt.
Na een succesvolle bootcamp vorig jaar, heeft de Cross Border expertgroep van Shopping Tomorrow dit jaar twee ambities. Dieper ingaan op de materie en een bredere doelgroep aan webshops betrekken. De komende jaren zal de expertgroep dan ook specifieke bestemmingen gaan belichten. Dit jaar staan Frankrijk en Spanje in de schijnwerpers. De bootcamp zal worden vervangen door een workshop waardoor een groter aantal webshops deel kan nemen. Voorzitter Salesupply en nieuwe partner DPD Pakketservice zijn blij met de vele aanmeldingen voor de expertgroep, die daarmee reeds vol is. Met de expertise van Salesupply, DPD en experts zoals Under Armour, Prins Petfoods en Noppies, wil de expertgroep de tocht van webshops naar de Franse en Spaanse markten ondersteunen.
De groei van crossborder e-commerce is één van de belangrijkste ontwikkelingen in de markt op dit moment. De jaarlijkse groei in de B2C e-commerce bedraagt binnen Nederland circa 15% (Thuiswinkelmarktmonitor 2015) en in crossborder Europa zelfs 18% (Western Europe B2C e-commerce report).
Shopping Tomorrow wil een compleet beeld bieden van de lokale Franse en Spaanse e-commerce markten. De Cross Border expertgroep, onder leiding van Jose van Lent, Manager Marketing & Communication bij DPD Nederland, en Hans Siebum, Country Manager Benelux van Salesupply, zal dit doen middels een onderzoek naar vijf belangrijke componenten: Customer Service, E-Marketing, Fulfilment en Logistiek, Lokalisatie en Accelerators voor bedrijven die reeds in Frankrijk of Spanje gevestigd zijn.
Belangrijke vraag die hierbij zal worden beantwoord, is wat de mogelijkheden op het gebied van e-commerce in landen als Frankrijk en Spanje zijn. Hoe staat de lokale markt ervoor? Wat wordt gedaan om een webshop succesvol te lokaliseren? En hoe zorgen we ervoor dat een webshop aanslaat bij de Franse of Spaanse consument?
Voor iedere branche wordt zo een factsheet gecreëerd met de belangrijkste uitdagingen bij een uitrol. Middels een workshop waar Nederlandse bedrijven zich voor op kunnen geven, kunnen zij zich in één dag laten informeren over de belangrijkste informatie voor de stap naar Frankrijk of Spanje.
Official operator of the delivery of the 2.500.000 tickets of the championship, and as national sponsor of UEFA EURO 2016™, the French La Poste and its parcel subsidiaries Chronopost and DPD will begin the deliveries of the tickets. The very first tickets for UEFA Euro 2016™ will be delivered in Europe and worldwide from 2nd April. The tickets will be shipped from France by Chronopost to 176 pays across five continents and delivered given the country by La Poste, Chronopost or by DPD.
While the majority of tickets will be delivered to Europe, with one third of tickets being delivered to fans in France, the rest of the tickets will be delivered to supporters in some 176 countries across five continents. In all, the 2.500.000 tickets will be sent in April and May to individual customers and businesses: national federations, businesses, partners of UEFA Euro 2016™.
We congratulate our customers VidaXL with the professional award Cross Border E-Commerce Award 2016 and Belsimpel with the audience award in the category Electronics & Telecom. Big surprise at the Home Shopping Awards evening was Athlete. Athlete Shop has been named the fastest growing e-commerce business in 2015. A great achievement!
On 1 April, Belgium will introduce a toll for freight traffic concerning vehicles of over 3,5 tons. The toll applies to all carriers using the Belgian freeway network and certain regional and municipal roads. The toll itself will have no impact on DPD’s rates in 2016. DPD has chosen to adhere to existing agreements and not increase the rates.

De markt voor pakketvervoer groeit met zo’n 8% hard, maar DPD Group groeit harder.'De ambitie is om jaarlijks met 15% tot 20% te groeien, en dat lukt', zegt Robert van Straaten, directeur marketing en sales van DPD Nederland. Dat bevestigen de jaarcijfers die Geopost, het Franse moederbedrijf van DPD, dinsdag bekendmaakte.
Over 2015 behaalde Geopost een omzet van€ 5,7 mrd, een stijging van meer dan 15% ten opzichte van 2014. In de Benelux groeide de omzet met 14%. Daarmee is DPD Group na het Duitse DHL de grootste pakketbezorger in Europa. Wereldwijd vervoert DPD Group meer dan 3,6 miljoen pakketten per dag. Het interview met Van Straaten vindt plaats op het Nederlandse hoofdkantoor van DPD in Best bij Eindhoven. Het dorp is het middelpunt van de Benelux volgens Van Straaten. Vanuit hier en acht andere distributiecentra in Nederland vinden pakketjes hun weg naar consumenten en bedrijven in 22 Europese landen.
Waar concurrenten als DHL en TNT Express ook veel pakjes per lucht vervoeren, is DPD gespecialiseerd in vervoer over de weg. De Nederlandse tak van DPD legt zich vooral toe op het vervoeren van pakketten vanuit Nederland naar de rest van Europa, minder op vervoer binnen Nederland.'In het grensoverschrijdende vervoer over de weg zijn wij marktleider met bijna 28% van de markt', zegt Van Straaten.
DPD vergroot het marktaandeel in Europa. Maar dat claimen rivalen als DHL en UPS ook. In welke hoek vallen de klappen?
'Met name bij de bedrijven die alleen lokaal of regionaal actief zijn. Want de trend is dat er steeds meer pakketten over grenzen heen worden besteld en vervoerd. Wij bezorgen bijvoorbeeld veel voor dierenwinkel Zooplus. Als een consument in Frankrijk op de Franse website van Zooplus een hondenriempje besteld, leveren wij dat vanuit Nederland. Andersom leveren we sinds kort voor Amazon vanuit Duitsland naar Nederland.'
De grote partijen winnen ten koste van de kleine?
'Ja. De grote partijen kunnen voldoende investeren in hun netwerken en ICT en hun kosten laag houden. Want consumenten worden steeds kritischer. Ze zijn slechts bereid om een relatief klein bedrag aan vervoerskosten te betalen. En klanten willen de keuze hebben of ze hun pakket thuis, bij de buurman of bij een ophaalpunt laten bezorgen. Het liefst willen ze dan ook nog tot op het uur nauwkeurig weten hoe laat dat pakje aankomt. Die service kunnen wij door heel Europa bieden. Ook als wij dat hondenriempje vanuit Nederland op 3 hoog vijf achter in Parijs-Zuid bezorgen.'
FedEX neemt TNT dit jaar over. Vrezen jullie voor een sterkere concurrent?
'We krijgen er inderdaad een sterke collega bij. Al zal er nog een tijd overheen gaan voordat de bedrijven zijn geïntegreerd. Maar wij geloven dat wij een onderscheidend netwerk hebben. Hun wortels liggen meer bij vervoer door de lucht, die van ons bij vervoer over de weg.'
Heb je geen achterstand als je niet door de lucht vervoert?
'Er zal natuurlijk altijd een markt blijven bestaan voor pakketten die er zo snel mogelijk moeten zijn en die per vliegtuig worden vervoerd. Maar de trend is dat een pakketje dat ook een of twee dagen later aan mag komen, steeds vaker over de weg wordt vervoerd, voor een vijfde van het tarief. Dat scheelt ook nog eens een hoop CO2-uitstoot.'
Het is toch nog steeds een nadeel in het werven van klanten als je niet door de lucht vervoert?
'Wij bieden ook vervoer door de lucht aan als ondersteunende dienst. Daarvoor werken we samen met Air France. We hebben gegarandeerde ruimtes in commerciële vluchten om ook pakketten naar intercontinentale bestemmingen te kunnen vervoeren.'

1500 DPD Pickup points will be added to the Amazon network in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, to allow customers to pick up their order at 2300 convenient locations
Luxembourg, 16 February 2016 – Today, Amazon announced that it will expand its Pickup point programme in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg with over 1500 new points, which makes a total of 2300 Amazon Pickup points in the Benelux. In order to achieve this, Amazon is partnering with DPD Pickup, the Benelux market leader in the field of Pickup points for parcels.
Thanks to DPD’s Pickup service, Amazon clients can now pick up their orders whenever they like, even if they are not at home during the customary delivery times. The partnership between Amazon and DPD comprises 750 shops in the Netherlands, 725 in Belgium and 25 in Luxembourg. In total, Amazon has almost tripled the size of its Pickup point network in the three countries.
“Customers can now pick up their Amazon orders at over 2300 Pickup points throughout the Benelux,” says Roy Perticucci, Vice-President Europe Amazon Customers & Fulfillment. “Many buyers have already chosen Pickup points as the easiest way to pick up their orders. By expanding our Pickup point network in Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, we are making it as easy as possible for our customers.”
When placing an order, Amazon customers can select a Pickup point and go to the chosen shop with proof of identity, in order to pick up their parcel.
Amazon’s new Pickup network is available on amazon.fr for Belgium and amazon.de for Luxembourg and the Netherlands, with standard delivery (2-3 days) for customers.
The DPD Pickup points (ranging from newspaper shops to supermarkets) are usually open from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm. Almost all of the Pickup points are open on Saturdays, and 20% are also open on Sundays. On the DPD website, customers can find the Pickup point closest to their location.

With effect from 1 January 2016, the 'UID' (VAT) number of the Swiss recipient must be specified on all goods with consolidated customs clearance sent to Switzerland. The Swiss customs authorities use the UID number to identify Swiss companies for which customs clearance takes place. The UID number is only for businesses and not for private recipients. DPD Switzerland uses a dummy UID number if there are goods for private recipients.
What does this mean?
The UID number of the importer/tax representative and that of the end recipient with the maximum gross weight must be specified. To prevent delays at the border, both the UID number and the name and address details of the Swiss recipients with the maximum gross weight must also be stated on the invoice or in the registration e-mail.
To find and check a Swiss UID number, please visit https://www.uid.admin.ch
- If the recipient with highest maximum gross weight is a business, both the name and address details and the UID number must be stated.
- If the recipient with maximum gross weight is a private individual, only the name and address details must be stated required.

Shopping online can be an emotional rollercoaster, according to research by parcel deliverer DPDgroup and InProcess, which is specialised in ethnographic research. Young online shoppers experience a number of emotional highs and lows during the online buying process, dependent on the experience that is offered by the online store, the payment systems, the delivery and possible returning of the product they buy.
Five key insights from the research:
- The participants (18-25) were more convinced by a good deal, without nasty surprises and hidden costs, than by the lowest price.
- The one-size-fits-all online store is at odds with customers’ wish for a personalised surfing experience. The participants primarily criticised the lack of choice in delivery and payment options.
- In the online search for specific items, such as luxury and fragile products, online reviews and second opinions from acquaintances are often decisive in the buying decision.
- In general, during the steps in the process before the purchase, the buyer feels good. After the emotional peak at the moment of purchase, there was a noticeable letdown and a sense of separation and lack of control among the participants. Satisfaction is further delayed when the delivered product does not meet expectations.
- A lack of transparency during the delivery process causes an increase in missed deliveries. Participants rather prefer delivery to take place at the exact time that they expect it, than the fastest possible delivery.
Robert van Straaten, Director Marketing & Sales at DPD Netherlands, commented on the research:
“As one of the largest cross-border parcel operators in a market where online retail is growing explosively, we want to understand the entire purchase process, from the moment the consumer chooses a product online and looking forward to receiving the selected item until the moment of delivery, and all motivations and emotions that accompany it. By that visualising this journey and understanding the nuances in the different countries, we are in an even better position to adjust our service to the customers’ needs. We will share our findings with our customers, the online retailers, and our partners, so they can use this to be even more responsive to customer needs.”
Noticeable differences between countries
Despite the similar steps in the customer journey, we still noticed differences in perception between countries.
For instance, among the German participants, there is a particular frustration over missed deliveries and the effort needed to get a hold of these parcels. Polish online shoppers have positive experiences with the locker system, but do not like to return products because of the hassle and costs that are involved. Young Spanish online shoppers would like to see a simpler search process, with better filters and options. The participants from the United Kingdom are frustrated by the disappearance of items from the shopping cart, and French online shoppers primarily complain about the delivery time.
The qualitative study of the young generation of online shoppers in Europe took place in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain and Poland among 18- to 25-year olds. These are all major markets where many Dutch merchants deliver packages to using DPD. Forty consumers were interviewed and used a camera to capture their shopping experiences for an entire week.
DPD will share the survey results and a summary of the video reports with its customers and partners. A summary of the results and a video report can be found at www.dpd.nl/eshoppers-study.
DPDgroup has expanded its network to 20,000 points and is now available in 13 countries. Including 3000 Pick-up points in Spain and the UK and 1500 in the Netherlands and Belgium, 95% of the European population currently lives within 15 minutes of a Pickup point.
DPD’s Pickup network is one of the densest PUDO (Pick-Up and Drop-Off) networks in Europe. Brands that fall under DPDgroup – DPD, Chronopost, SUER and Interlink Express – can offer their customers a highly effective delivery service.
Because the 'last-mile' is one of the most important steps in the delivery process, DPDgroup continues to innovate, offering solutions that are adapted to the needs of the recipient. Currently, DPDgroup is testing Pickup Stations in France, a network of automated lockers for collecting and dropping off parcels. There are currently 300 Pickup Stations operational in France, each of which can handle 100 packages a day and the stations are open 24 hours a day. Furthermore, DPDgroup is testing Pickup Stores, which can also handle 100 parcels per day. Pickup Stores can be found in busy locations such as train stations and shopping centres, where recipients can also find other products and services, and allow recipients to collect their parcels on their way home.
The next step in DPDgroup’s Pickup network is to roll out Pickup points in Poland and the expansion from 800 Pickup points to 2000 points in Russia in 2016.
B2B sales increasingly take place online. Businesses are following the lead of the B2C market and hoping to push forward their growth through online sales.

Parcel delivery company and premier league club extend their collaboration
The new sponsor contract between DPD and the Willem II football club was signed in Tilburg on the evening of Saturday 18 April. The extended collaboration between Willem II and the parcel delivery company will run for a new period of two seasons, with the option to extend the contract for an additional three seasons. DPD has been the shirt sponsor for Willem II since 1 July 2010.
Over the past five years, DPD has built up an exceptionally good relationship with the club. During the next two seasons, DPD will therefore continue to support Willem II in the capacity of twelfth man. “As a result of our sponsorship, we have noticed a significant increase in brand familiarity in recent years. We have also found that our customers feel very welcome at Willem II. At DPD, we are convinced that mutual trust forms the basis of every relationship. We aim to enter into long-term relationships not only with our customers, but also with our partners. We feel that we should continue to support each other,” says Robert van Straaten, Marketing & Sales Director at DPD.
DPD recently introduced a new logo and a new corporate identity. DPD's new look represents the strong development, growth and integration which the network has experienced. This step will give the parcel delivery company increased national and international clout, allowing it to keep leading the way in the fast-growing online retail market.
From next season onwards, the new corporate identity will also find its way to Willem II where it will be visible on the rear of the shirts, among other locations.
Willem II are delighted that DPD has extended the contract. “We are extremely proud to have had DPD as our shirt sponsor over the past five years. DPD is a loyal and stable partner and we hope to work together for many years to come. For this reason, it is fantastic to be able to set the seal on our long-term relationship today with a new two-year contract. Over the next two years, we will once again make every effort to ensure that this partnership is a success,” says Berry van Gool, Managing Director of Willem II.
New logo DPD visualizes clout and ambition
Best, March 18, 2015 – DPD introduces a new logo and is from now on part of the brand umbrella DPDgroup; the new name of the package carriers of the French La Poste. This step emphasizes the process of strong development, growth and integration that the company has been through and gives DPD the international power on the B2B- and B2C market. DPD can thus remain at the forefront of both the cross-border B2B parcel transport and the rapidly growing online retail market, where flexible, reliable and customer-friendly delivery is crucial. The international parcel service brands that are now also a part of the new DPDgroup are Chronopost, Seur and Interlink Express.
Michaël van Ooijen, CEO Benelux, DPD: “We have been working for a long time on streamlining our national and international operations and services and aligning them perfectly to connect our customers and parcel recipients. These developments are crucial to remain a leader in de market, especially in the fast growing market of online retail. The Dutch online retail market, and certainly our online retail export, is growing explosively. We want to support our customers in making the most of that growth by helping them keeping their promises to their customers in the Netherlands and abroad.
Independent network European B2B Parcel shipment
This step in international network-integration underlines DPD’s ambition to be the most innovative, reliable, flexible and customer-centered logistics partner for B2B- and B2C-parcel shipment on a national and international level. The further harmonization of the European network enables DPD to serve all customers in Europe with the same quality of service in an integrated network.
Strong growth in B2C market
Building on its strong network and experience, DPD is growing strongly in the field of B2C transport, in particular due to the growth of online retail both in the Netherlands and internationally. New and recent developments in delivery- and return options for online shops and consumers tha DPD implemented to meet the needs of consumers (receivers) and shippers (online retailers) include:
- Pickup, the new to be implemented name in the dense network of parcel shops. In the Netherlands there are over 750, in Belgium and Luxembourg combined 750 and this year the European network is expanding to the United Kingdom and Spain. This brings the number of Pickup locations in Europe to 22.000 in thirteen countries. There are more extensions planned for 2016.
- The introduction of Predict, which gives recipients a time window of 1 hour for delivery.
- The successful introduction in 2014 of www.pakkettenversturen.nl, the online shipping service. This service is aimed at consumers and small business users like power sellers and online shops from a pickup location to an address in the Netherlands or elsewhere in Europe.
The new logo will appear on the DPDgroup vehicles, parcels and on the uniforms of the staff and drivers in the coming period. The name Pickup will appear on the pickup points starting April.
The parcel deliverer does not stand still in 2015
DPD will support bol.com as a logistics service provider for ‘selling through bol.com’. With this model, bol.com offers other retailers in the Netherlands and Belgium the possibility to sell through bol.com. From February onwards, the cooperation will allow the sales partners of bol.com to easily send their sold products through DPD. DPD’s strong international network in combination with the focus on service and favourable pricing are a good addition to the shipping options for retailers who sell through bol.com.
“Our years of experience in the national and international B2B market, the focus on innovation and the strong logistical network have helped to create a complete offering for webshops. We are proud to receive recognition from the market. The welcoming of webshops as customers, like bol.com, shows we are on the right path,” said Robert van Straaten, Director Marketing & Sales of DPD Netherlands.
DPD strives towards constant development and focus on service to be able to serve the ecommerce market as best as possible. In recent years, the parcel deliverer launched new delivery and return options for webshops and consumers. The building of an international network of collection points and the development of opportunities for webshop integration supported this growth in the ecommerce market. DPD also introduced an online delivery service and has been able to further optimize the proactive delivery information for receiving customers.
Forward in 2015
Van Straaten continues: “We most certainly won’t be standing still in 2015. Following DPD in the United Kingdom and Germany, we expect to be able to expand our Predict-service with Follow My Parcel. This allows us to not only inform the consumer of the one-hour timeslot in which the delivery will take place, it will also be possible to track the driver in real-time up to 15 minutes before delivery and make changes to the delivery. Furthermore, we are examining the possibility to also launch the Predict service for returning parcels that we pick up at consumers’ homes, so that people will no longer have to unnecessarily wait. Of course, we are also working hard to grow our international DPD Parcelshop network in Europe and possibilities for webshops integration are being developed further.”

Vanaf vandaag kan men via www.pakkettenversturen.nl snel, gemakkelijk en voordelig online pakketten versturen met DPD Pakketservice. De online verzendservice is gericht op consumenten en kleinzakelijke gebruikers zoals power sellers en webshops. Door de koppeling van de online verzendservice aan het sterke internationale DPD ParcelShop netwerk breidt DPD de verzendoplossingen voor niet-geregistreerde klanten uit. Pakketten worden verzonden vanuit een DPD ParcelShop naar een (thuis)adres in Nederland of elders in Europa.
Met de online verzendservice kunnen consumenten en kleine zakelijke gebruikers, die regelmatig producten verkopen via o.a. Marktplaats of eBay, nu eenvoudig hun pakketten verzenden. Het gebruiksgemak van de online verzendservice vindt zijn kracht in de snelheid en eenvoud voor de verzender. Zo kunnen verzenders snel aan de slag omdat zij zich niet hoeven te registreren. Uiteraard bestaat de optie om een account aan te maken. Dit biedt de geregistreerde gebruiker de voordelen van het niet telkens opnieuw hoeven invoeren van verzendgegevens, het beheer van een online adresboek en een handig statusoverzicht van de verzonden pakketten.
Hoe het werkt
Het gemak van online pakket verzenden wordt versterkt doordat men alles zelf thuis kan regelen en nergens in een rij hoeft te wachten. De verzendgegevens worden online ingevoerd, er wordt online afgerekend, de gebruiker print het pakketlabel en bevestigt deze op het pakket. Het pakket hoeft dan alleen nog afgegeven te worden bij een DPD ParcelShop. Met 1400 DPD ParcelShops in de Benelux, waarvan 700 in Nederland, is er altijd één in de buurt. De verzender en ontvanger blijven proactief geïnformeerd over de bezorging met een handige notificatie feature.
Robert van Straaten, Director Marketing & Sales bij DPD Nederland zegt: “Doordat wij dagelijks pakketten bezorgen bij consumenten hebben wij de behoefte aan een voordelige en gemakkelijke verzendservice gesignaleerd. Onze verzendservice is een uitbreiding op het dienstenaanbod voor de consumentenmarkt. Het netwerk van DPD Parcelshops blijft hierin een cruciale rol spelen.”
Uitbreiding functionaliteit DPD ParcelShop
Met deze online verzendservice wordt de functionaliteit van de DPD ParcelShop sterk uitgebreid. Eerst bood de DPD ParcelShop alleen opties voor het ophalen en retourneren van pakketten. Binnenkort wordt de online verzendservice uitgebreid met de bijzondere mogelijkheid om pakketten te versturen van de ene naar de andere ParcelShop in de Benelux en Duitsland. Dit biedt zowel de verzender als ontvanger straks nog meer flexibiliteit.
As of 15 September DPD Germany launches a new delivery process for private consignees: if the consignee is not present at the first delivery attempt, the parcel is now redirected to a DPD ParcelShop. This not only applies to parcel shipments within Germany but also for parcel shipments from the Netherlands to Germany.
If, at the first delivery attempt, a parcel can't be delivered to the consignee, handed to a neighbour or left with permission to deposit, it is left at the nearest ParcelShop for collection by the consignee. The consignee will be informed and can then pick up his parcel at the nearest DPD Parcel Shop.
The DPD ParcelShop network in Germany with 5,000 ParcelShops is so dense and extensive that there is always a ParcelShop nearby. The advantage is that consignees receive their parcels faster and don't have to wait for a second delivery attempt.
Does the parcel not meet the terms of the DPD ParcelShop, then a second delivery attempt will be made the next day.
The second edition of the Cross Border E-commerce Event will take place on 10 September. As the market leader in cross border parcel shipments in Europe, we will definitely be attending as the main sponsor.
The Cross Border E-commerce Event serves as a source of knowledge and inspiration for retailers, e-tailers and e-commerce companies with international growth ambitions, from successful start-ups to major experienced enterprises. During the event, experts with years of experience in the foreign market will lead master classes that discuss best practices in depth.
Afterwards, theme tables will be set up for visitors to explore topics or situations of specific relevance to them. Visitors to the event will learn from experts and real-life examples all about growth abroad, potential pitfalls, and what works and what doesn't.

Customers are placing ever higher demands on the service quality of webshops.
One of these solutions is the recently launched Checkout widget. It enables you to integrate delivery options for direct delivery to a DPD ParcelShop (2Shop) and home delivery (DPD Home) into your webshop checkout process.
DPD Parcel Service is reducing the deliveries timeslot of its consumer service Predict from three to one hour in the Netherlands. DPD does not want to let the receiver wait unnecessarily for their parcel. The renewed DPD Predict service is one of the initiatives of the parcel deliverer to service consumers to the best of their ability and to become the best possible logistics partner for web shops. Earlier this week, DPD launched an advertising campaign to make online retailers aware of their services that are aligned with the needs of the consumer market.
Aligned to market needs
Research shows that 85 percent of the consumers want to know exactly when their parcel arrives. To align its services to this need, DPD Predict will reduce the delivery timeslot to just one hour. The receiver will receive a message on the day of delivery, notifying them of the timeslot in which the parcel will be delivered. If the timeslot does not work, the receiver can easily plan a new delivery day and time. DPD realizes this short timeslot by calculating the optimal route for their drivers every morning. Not only is waiting time for customers reduced, it is also environmentally friendly. By driving as efficiently as possible, the drivers travel less kilometres. The one-hour service of Predict is currently already offered in the central region of the Netherlands, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam and will soon be available in Limburg and Noord-Brabant. Before the end of 2014, DPD Predict will service all of the Netherlands.
Complete service offering for the B2C market
DPD’s longstanding experience in the national and international B2Bmarket, its focus on innovations and its strong logistic network have helped built a complete offering for the B2C market. DPD is the only parcel deliverer with a complete national and international offering of delivery and return options for the consumer, from home or via the DPD ParcelShops.
“DPD offers web shops a single partner for all delivery options. We are a reliable and flexible logistics partner for online retailers for parcel delivery to consumers, both domestically and internationally,” says Michaël van Ooijen, CEO of DPD the Netherlands & Head of Cluster DPD Benelux. “We are continuously aware of the challenges and needs of our clients and adjust our service offering for web shops accordingly. We thus use our knowledge to be successful.”
DPD is one of the biggest players in the Netherlands in the competitive and fast-changing market for B2C parcel delivery. DPD has set up a number of services along the way in which the needs of the receiver have always come first:
- DPD was the first in the market with nieuwelevering.nl. After an unsuccessful delivery attempt, the receiver can schedule when they want the next delivery to take place.
- DPD Home, a product specially made for deliveries to consumers that also included Predict. DPD was one of the first to inform consumers about the moment of delivery.
- DPD set up an international ParcelShop network of 1,300 shops in the Benelux. Parcels can both be collected and sent from the ParcelShops. Recently, the Benelux network has been integrated with 5,000 shops in Germany and France will soon follow. With the ParcelShops, DPD has one network for all national and international dispatching and returning of parcels and can be of service to web shop owners from start to finish.
- DPD recently developed ready-to-use technical solutions for web shops. These solutions allow delivery and return options to be integrated. During checkout at a web shop, consumers can indicate where they want to have the parcel delivered, which can be at home or at a DPD ParcelShop of choice.
Needs of receiver come first
The B2C market is increasingly steered by the needs of the receiver. DPD continues to work to enlarge, strengthen and develop the existing pallet of transport-related solutions in e-commerce. The parcel deliverer is currently working on the possibility of forwarding the parcel to a DPD ParcelShop. The goal is to eventually introduce ‘Follow My Parcel’. This development will not only allow a specific one hour timeslot to be communicated to the receiver, but the driver can also be followed in real-time up to 15 minutes before the delivery. It also allows adjustments to be made during the delivery. This is currently available in the UK. DPD strives towards introducing this in the Netherlands as well.

vLm Community E-Commerce Logistics is a community specially established within the Logistics Management Association for individuals and / or organizations involved in the logistics of e-commerce. On Wednesday April 16th the vLm E-commerce Community organised an "International Parcel Logistics: cross-border growth for online shops" workshop at DPD Parcel Service in Veenendaal.
The event attracted many participants and featured a variety of presentations on developments within the international B2C parcel transport sector. For DPD, the growth of e-commerce is of course evident on a daily basis. Hervé Crochet, E-Commerce Industry & Project Manager of GeoPost said: “Close international collaboration within the GeoPost group is enabling DPD to respond quickly and appropriately to international growth in particular."
Peter-Paul van Geijn, Director Logistics & Transportation at PartyLite added: “European integration delivers operational, IT and financial benefits. DPD understood our needs and has proven to be an agile partner for us during implementation in the eight countries where we sought a solution. Its decentralised structure means DPD is literally close to the customer. Figuratively, too, they’ve aligned themselves closely with us as a customer to come up with tailored solutions and the kind of advantages that PartyLite was looking for.”
The discussion considered a number of topics focused around the fact that demanding consumers require the widest possible choice of delivery options and timeslots. On the other hand, consumers also do not want to be overwhelmed with options. This is something that DPD deals with on a daily basis.

DPD Parcel service, in collaboration with CheapCargo, will take on the complete delivery of the creative packages for War Child’s school musical. This musical for the final-year pupils of primary schools is developed in collaboration with Albert Verlinde Entertainment. The packages contain everything the schools need to successfully perform the musical. This year marks the first time DPD is involved in sending the packages.
Musical action packages
The musical has been a great success ever since its start: over 2,400 schools have successfully performed the musical. After donating 12 euros towards War Child, each class gets a musical action package which includes handy gadgets, a script, a manual for teachers, a CD with songs, and tips and tricks. The box (60x50x40) also serves as a donation collection box for the War Child foundation. By collecting donations, the participating schools try to raise as much money as possible for charity.
DPD and War Child
DPD commits efforts into helping the community by participating in many different initiatives. The War Child project fits perfectly with the vision of DPD. “We happily contribute towards the society by supporting non-profit organizations by supporting financially, logistically and supporting with voluntary work” says Robert van Straaten (Director Marketing & Sales). War Child appreciates DPD’s and CheapCargo’s sponsorship. “We are proud to be working together with companies that are very much publicly engaged. Because DPD and CheapCargo fully sponsor the delivery of musical action packages, we can help even more children who growing up in war zones,” Simon Roelofsen of War Child says.
‘De Koning Te Rijk’ is a funny, moving and exciting story about children who have the assignment to write an essay about children in war zones. Before they have a chance to put word on paper, they find themselves caught up in an adventure on a ship that can travel through time and sails passed important events in history. With the proceeds, War Child offers psychosocial assistance, education and protection of children in (former) conflict areas.
The DPD ParcelShop network keeps on growing!
DPD ParcelShop is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to receive parcels quickly and easily. At the end of 2013 we started the roll-out of the ParcelShop network. There are now more than 1200 ParcelShops in the Benelux countries, over 600 of which are in the Netherlands. In April we hope to extend our network to 1500 ParcelShops.
Sustainable logistic- and mobility process still a high priority
With receiving a Lean and Green Award last year, DPD Parcel service set itself the goal to reduce CO2-emission with 21% in 2016. In order to achieve this, the parcel service took also this year several steps to make its entire logistic process more sustainable. Thus, in November a start was made with electric distribution of parcels in the city centre of Nijmegen and contracted transport operators now have the opportunity to purchase vehicles driving on natural gas for a reduced price through a unique concept. Also, Total Zero, a program which guarantees CO2-neutral parcel distribution, will be further expanded throughout Europe.
Unique arrangement of natural gas-drive
Contracted transport operators are able, since the first of January 2013, to purchase natural gas vehicles with a tempting discount. This arrangement was developed in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz and Fiat and is extended with a unique collaboration with Van Mossel Leasing, Mercedes-Benz and CNG Net (Ballast Nedam). It is a full service without risks concept with a price guarantee for natural gas for twelve months. This financing arrangement and form of cooperation have not been seen before in the market. Hereby, DPD takes away the largest barriers, transport operators have with buying a natural gas vehicle. The switch to natural gas vehicles that eventually run on green gas contributes to CO2 reduction objectives of DPD in the context of Lean and Green.
Electric parcel distribution in Nijmegen
In November 2013, DPD started, together with Combipakt Nijmegen B.V., with the electrical distribution of parcels in the city centre of Nijmegen. This initiative is part of the Dutch program ‘Proeftuinen hybride en elektrisch rijden’ from the ministry of Economics. With this program, driving electrical and plug-in hybrid vehicles will be stimulated. A total of 180 packages per day are now transported this way. DPD also collaborates with the municipality of Nijmegen, ROC Logistiek Nijmegen, driving school Wesseldijk and ANWB driving school on a project for the training and certification of drivers for driving in electrical vehicles. Monitoring is done by Hogeschool Arnhem Nijmegen (HAN), from the lectorship mobility technology and the lectorship vehicle mechanics. The results of this project are expected in February 2014.
Lean and Green award
The Lean and Green award is given to companies that are working towards more sustainable logistic and mobility processes. As a company within the transport and logistics sector, DPD is very well aware of its responsibilities. It has set itself the goal to reduce the carbon footprint and protect natural resources. Therefore DPD introduced Total Zero last year. This ensures a daily CO2 neutral package delivery. DPD takes initiatives which contribute to this objective. Naturally it also supports and stimulates initiatives of subcontractors such as Combipakt. Also, DPD started to use the first Dual Fuel LZV, a truck driving on diesel and gas. Furthermore, DPD is working hard on the improvement of CO2 reporting. All initiatives are showed individually and underlying route statistics will be improved.
Since July last year with Total Zero, DPD makes sure every parcel is CO2 neutrally distributed without extra costs for the client. Total Zero consists of three steps: (1) measurement of the amount of CO2 which is emitted by DPD as an organization; (2) reducing of CO2-emmission with several initiatives and (3) compensating the remaining amount of CO2. At the moment Total Zero is applied to seventeen European countries such as France, Germany, United Kingdom, Estonia, Latvia, Poland and Hungary.
Onder andere op Facebook worden gebruikers gewezen op een nieuwe manier van oplichting met behulp van een pakket. De oplichters bestellen voor honderden euro's en laten dit bezorgen op een willekeurig adres. Het pakket wordt vervolgens door de oplichters met een smoes opgehaald.
Het pakket staat op een andere naam dan bij het adres hoort. Degene die het pakket aanneemt (en denkt dat het pakket misschien door iemand anders in huis is besteld) krijgt een telefoontje of iemand aan de deur die zegt het pakket op te komen halen. Gevolg is dat het pakket in handen van de oplichters is en degene die het in ontvangst neemt later een rekening gestuurd krijgt op het ontvangstadres.
Neem geen pakketten aan waarop niet uw eigen naam staat of als het adres en de naam verkeerd zijn geschreven. Indien u wel een 'fraudepakket' heeft aangenomen, neem dan contact op met de organisatie waarvan het pakket afkomstig is. Geef het pakket niet mee aan onbekenden die om het pakket komen vragen.
Parcel service provider increases its focus on the consumer market and invests substantially in own network of ParcelShops
DPD Pakketservice is playing an increasingly more active role in the B2C market. As of today, the parcel service provider will start with a phased implementation of a national and international network of ParcelShops, which will make the sending and picking up of parcels a lot easier. DPD is the first in the Dutch Market to offer a multi-country network. The company will start with more than 1.000 ParcelShops in the Benelux. Over the course of next year, integration with the existing networks in Germany and France will take place.
Integrated multi-country network
As a logistics service provider, DPD notices that due to the growth of online shopping the number of consumer parcels is rapidly increasing. In addition, DPD has also become aware of a strong increase in the trend of cross-border e-commerce and is therefore introducing their multi-country network of ParcelShops. Michaël van Ooijen, CEO DPD Netherlands and Head of cluster DPD Benelux: “DPD plays an active role in the B2C market. We have observed that web shops are experiencing logistic challenges when serving customers abroad. Due to years of experience, our strength lies in international parcel distribution. In order to play upon this strength even more, we created an international ParcelShop network which enables B2C parcels to be distributed and picked up up by consumers outside the Netherlands.
Once the 1.000 ParcelShops are in place in the Benelux, 500 more will follow in 2014. In addition, next year will also see an integration with the 5.000 and 6.500 pick-up points in Germany and France respectively. DPD is choosing for a phased introduction and will start by partnering with a number of large web shops. The phase following will see DPD offering customers a number of tools to support business and consumer shipments.
The introduction of an integrated multi-country network of pick-up points fits perfectly in the parcel service provider’s strategic expansion of e-commerce business. Previous iniatives within the strategy have been the recent innovative collaboration with supermarket superdirect.com and Predict, a service which enables the consumer to be involved in the planned delivery process. This service is also available on an international level. Michael van Ooijen: “In order to better serve webshops and their clients, we are literally taking away any challenges.”

Afgelopen zaterdag werd bekend dat DPD Pakketservice de titel Beste Skybox van Nederland heeft gewonnen. De succesvolle pakketspecialist wist met zijn Skybox in het Koning Willem II Stadion 4.356 stemmen te verzamelen, waardoor zij met recht de eretitel binnensleepten. Vier weken lang was De Beste Skybox hét onderwerp van gesprek binnen de business clubs van het betaald voetbal in Nederland. Clubs en ondernemers sleepten alles uit de kast om de verkiezing naar hun hand te zetten.
BNR Nieuwsradio en Voetbalzaken.nl nomineerden in samenwerking met clubs 35 Skyboxen en ondernemers voor de titel De Beste Skybox van Nederland. Het betrof een enorme diversiteit aan ondernemers en concepten. Een vakjury bestaande uit Humberto Tan, Frank van den Wall Bake en Ruud van der Knaap selecteerde op 5 oktober de Top 11 Beste Skyboxen van Nederland op basis van het aantal stemmen, het concept, de aankleding en het rendement van de deelnemende skyboxen. De verkiezing werd uiteindelijk in het voordeel van DPD Pakketservice beslist. Aan de verkiezing deden ruim 18.000 stemmers mee.
Director Marketing & Sales van DPD, Robert van Straaten werd in de uitzending van BNR Sportzaken door presentator Humberto Tan en Kenneth Goudmijn, directeur Voetbalzaken, in het zonnetje gezet. “Dit initiatief van Voetbalzaken was een schot in de roos. Mede dankzij de support van de supporters, de samenwerking met Willem II en het enthousiasme onder onze gezamenlijke relaties hebben we deze titel in de wacht gesleept. Een perfect uitgevoerd Tilburgs een-tweetje!” Volgens Kenneth Goudmijn heeft DPD Pakketservice verdiend gewonnen: “Als je ziet welke inspanningen zij hebben geleverd om meer dan 4.000 stemmers te bereiken, dan is DPD de terechte winnaar van onze verkiezing.”
De Skybox van DPD Pakketservice in het Koning Willem II Stadion in Tilburg is genomineerd voor de titel De Beste Skybox van Nederland!
De verkiezing wordt georganiseerd door VoetbalZaken en BNR SportZaken. In het programma BNR Sportzaken, elke zaterdag tussen 12 en 13 uur te beluisteren op BNR, zal er voortdurend aandacht zijn voor de verkiezing.
De winnaar wordt op 12 oktober door presentator Humberto Tan bekend gemaakt en in de uitzending geïnterviewd. De vakjury beoordeelt op criteria als aankleding, rendement, bezetting en concept, maar ook op basis van alle uitgebrachte stemmen welke 10 Skyboxen uiteindelijk tot de beste van Nederland behoren.

Parcel service responds to growth in e-commerce by collaboration with superdirect.com
Innovations that lead to concrete benefits for senders and receivers are of great importance to DPD Parcel service. To be able to serve clients better and to respond to the rapid growth of e-commerce, DPD Parcel service starts an exclusive collaboration with superdirect.com. This is a new distribution concept through which consumers can order their groceries online and pick them up at an automatized delivery point. By collaborating with DPD Parcel service, it will also be possible to send and pick up parcels from these points later this year. As the process runs automatically, limited opening times, rows or a lack of parking spaces belong to the past. Coming Saturday, 28 September, the first superdirect-point will be opened in Eindhoven.
E-commerce has expanded vastly in the past years and it is expected that it will grow from a 10 billion business to a 13 billion business in 2015. The biggest growth will be seen in the online sales of food and beverages. These results emerged from a study of IPSOS on online buying behaviour of the Dutch consumer. As a logistic service provider, DPD noticed that the number of packages to private addresses is rapidly increasing. “Unfortunately it often happens that the receivers are not at home to accept their orders. In order to serve the clients of our clients better, we constantly develop services which let the client decide where and when the parcel is delivered. The collaboration with superdirect.com fits in this strategy. Consumers can not only pick up their ordered groceries at superdirect.com, but also their other online orders and send parcels, for example with products they sell themselves,” according to Robert van Straaten, Director Marketing & Sales.
Receiver is at central position
The fact that receivers are very important for DPD has been proven earlier by the introduction of other services of the company like Predict. With this service, the receiver is informed about the planned day and timeslot on which the parcel will be delivered in a proactive way. If the receiver is not happy with the proposed moment, he or she can agree on a different moment for delivery. Besides delivery at home, pick up points are an efficient way to deliver parcels to consumers. They can pick up their orders on a moment that suits them, but also bring parcels to send. The collaboration with Superdirect.com makes this possible at every moment of the day. Because the points are automatic, there are lots of benefits for customers. For example there are no strict opening times and waiting rows and that saves a lot of time.
DPD parcel service has donated ceramic design producer COR Unum a used, industrial looking, mobile container that will be used as a unique exhibition and Pop-Up store for the ceramic collection of their designers. The mobile container will travel to several locations in the Netherlands and even to the Salone di Mobile event in Milan, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the ceramic design producer. DPD will take care of the transport of the container. The official opening will be held today by mayor Ton Rombouts during the culinary event Bourgondisch ´s-Hertogenbosch.
The idea of using the container for the collection of Cor Unum is the result of a co-creation session with Cor Unum last year. The sessions were hosted by DPD in order to find sustainable, integrated solutions for the logistic sector. The re-use of materials is an example of such solutions and is also in line with the sustainability policy of DPD.
A new look
By giving the container a new look, it can be used for other purposes. Robert van Straaten, CEO Marketing and Sales: “I am really proud that our container is used as an exhibition space for Cor Unum. At DPD we are always searching for ways in which materials can be used again, and now, with this container, this is done in a very creative way.” Besides the importance of sustainability, DPD also wants to stimulate local entrepreneurship with these initiatives.

Contract extended, DPD remains shirt sponsor in Jupiler League
Op 27 juni
On June 27th the new sponsor contract between DPD Parcel service and football club Willem II was signed in Tilburg. The renewed collaboration between Willem II and the parcel service will run for a period of two years. DPD Parcel service has been a shirt sponsor for Willem II since July 1st, 2010, when the club was still playing in the Dutch premier league. The DPD brand logo will remain on the same place of the shirt, which is on the back above the number of the players.
For the last three years DPD Parcel service has developed a very good relationship with the club. DPD feels very connected to the province of Brabant, as the head office of DPD in the Netherlands is located there. Long term relationships are of high importance for DPD, therefore DPD will remain a loyal sponsor to Willem II in the upcoming season. ‘’This sponsorship has led to an increase in DPD’s brand awareness over the last couple of years. In addition, we have noticed that our clients as guests feel very welcome at Willem II when they visit. At DPD we are convinced that mutual trust is the core of every relationship. Our ambition is not to only build long-term relationships with our clients, but also with our partners. Therefore, we believe there is a need to support each other, in good times and in bad times. Here, we have only one aim: the best for the Tricolores, now and in the future’’, says Robert van Straaten, Director Marketing & Sales DPD Parcel service.
Willem II is very pleased with the extension of the contract with DPD. ‘Last season wasn’t an easy year for our club. The trust of the parcel service in Willem II feels very good. With positive impulses like the extension of the sponsorship contract with DPD, the confidence of having a good season grows’, says Marco Faber, CEO of Willem II.
Willem II plays its first match of the new season on Sunday August 4th against FC Den Bosch.
The Dutch government has decided by 1 October 2012 of VAT raise the tariff of 19% to 21%.
Because of this we are, just like all Dutch companies, oblige as from 1 October 2012 to mention and calculate this new percentage on the invoices. The tariffs exclusively VAT remain of course unaltered.
Certificaat onderstreept duurzame bedrijfsvoering
DPD Pakketservice heeft onlangs een uitbreiding op haar ISO certificering ontvangen. Naast het eerder toegekende ISO 9001 certificaat beschikt de pakketvervoerder nu ook over het ISO 14001 certificaat. Deze certificering geldt voor heel Nederland en is een internationaal geaccepteerde norm die aangeeft waaraan een goed ‘milieumanagementsysteem’ zou moeten voldoen. Een dergelijk systeem stelt de organisatie in staat de milieuprestaties te monitoren en bij te sturen.
De toekenning van het certificaat is een nieuwe succesvolle stap die DPD zet op de weg naar verduurzaming van haar bedrijfsvoering. Het terugbrengen van CO2 is een van de belangrijkste doelstellingen binnen de strategie, met als speerpunt het eerder dit jaar geïntroduceerde Total Zero concept, waarbij alle pakketten door DPD CO2-neutraal bezorgd worden.

From January, the new Incoterms will be in operation. The ‘old’ Incoterms 2000 were reviewed by the International Chamber of Commerce. There are no substantive changes in international conditions, there is only a name change. DPD now delivers under standard ‘DAP cleared’(formerly DDP excluding duties and taxes), unless stated otherwise. The following matrix compares the ‘old’ Incoterms 2000 with the ‘new’ Incoterms 2010 and the cost ratios between the shipper/exporter and receiver/importer are being displayed.
We hope to have informed you sufficiently. If you have any questions, please contact your Account Manager or Sales Support.

De bezorgtijden van het internationale pakketvervoer van DPD hebben geen vertraging (opgelopen) als gevolg van de IJslandse aswolk boven Europa. Dankzij de focus van DPD op Europees vervoer over de weg liep de bezorging van pakketten in Europa geen vertraging op, ondanks het enorme effect van de uitbarsting van de vulkaan Eyjafjallajokull op het Europese (lucht)transportverkeer.

From Tuesday, 02.06.2009 collection requests can be offered in Serbia according to DPD standard. The orders for collection requests in Serbia as well as the orders by Serbia will be effected via data-based process.
Custom Clearance Procedure:
Please kindly note that the electronic export declaration becomes mandatory on 01.07.2009
No delivery from and to privat persons:
Pick-ups from and deliveries to private persons in Serbia involve a large amount of administrative work. Because of this administrative work and the costs which it involves both for the consignor and the consignee, the collection request service from and to private persons is currently not offered.
Consignors phone number and contact person as mandatory information:
The consignors phone number as well as a contact person needs to be stated for all collection requests placed in Serbia. The contact person can either be entered into one of the information lines or into the field for the collection address. In principle, DPD Serbia contacts every consignor before a collection attempt. In case neither a phone number nor a contact person is available or the contacting fails the collection request will not be performed.
In ons persbericht van dinsdag 17 februari over de nieuwe online service van DPD: www.nieuwelevering.nl is per abuis gemeld dat de ontvanger hierbij kan kiezen voor een tijdstip dat het pakket bezorgd wordt. Dit is helaas niet correct. De ontvanger kan aangeven op welke (werk)dag het pakket bezorgd kan worden.
Wij betreuren deze onjuiste melding. Mocht u verdere vragen over dit onderwerp hebben, dan kunt u contact opnemen met de afdeling Customer Service.
