Fine wines are in good hands with DPD

The safe transport of wine and sparkling wines continues to be a special challenge for the logistics industry. After all, every bottle of wine is something special and deserves to be well protected during shipping. For this reason parcel and express service provider DPD is now enabling winegrowers and retailers in Germany to ship their precious wine bottles in specially developed and particularly robust protective packaging – thus ensuring a high degree of transport safety.

These innovative wine cartons, which have been developed in cooperation with a prestigious German manufacturer, have been tested and certified by the Fraunhofer Institute. They were only approved for use in parcel shipping after extensive stress testing which involved falls, vibration, crash impact, constant pressure as well as frost, heat and moisture. "The development and optimisation of this new packaging took two years. The positive results of the Fraunhofer Institute tests show that this work has been worthwhile.

 With more than 20 years of experience and an annual volume of several hundred thousand shipments of wine DPD has developed into the leading specialist in wine logistics. The DPD service package for wine customers brings together all its services in this segment and is now to be continuously expanded further.
