DHL Parcel expanding options for preferred parcel delivery time

DHL Parcel has announced it will be expanding its services in Germany, by enabling recipients to choose preferred delivery times for any DHL shipment.

In a statement issued today (30 April), DHL Parcel explained the new offering: “Previously, it has been possible to use the preferred time option for shipments for which e-tailers offer the service as a shipping option in their shops. In the first half of the year, DHL Parcel will be introducing the option of booking a preferred time for any shipment – regardless of the e-tailer’s shipping offering.”

Initially, the new service will be available at a promotional price of €1.99 per parcel. At the end of the  introductory period, the premium will increase to €2.99 per shipment.

In the introductory phase, recipients will be able to book an evening delivery within a three-hour window from 6pm to 9pm in 20 German conurbations. The service options are expected to be extended gradually.

Achim Dünnwald, CEO of DHL Parcel, commented: “As market leader in the German parcel business, it is our aim to further align the delivery of parcels with the needs and wishes of parcel recipients and thus make life easier for them. The introduction of preferred delivery times for recipient customers is a consistent further expansion of our flexible parcel delivery offering.”
