Post Office partners with DPD

15 November 2023/Categories: Industry News, Freight Forwarding, Logistics & Supply Chain

Post Office and DPD have teamed up offering in-branch customers wider range of parcel delivery options.

The new Buy-In-Branch parcel service will begin in selected branches in time for the peak Christmas delivery season, complementing the recent launch of Parcels Online which enables customers to compare and purchase shipping online for drop-off in Post Offices.

Elaine Kerr, DPD UK CEO, said: "Buy-in-Branch extends our working relationship with the Post Office and will help provide more choice and convenience for UK parcel shippers. DPD parcel recipients can already collect their parcels from Post Office branches and regard them as safe and trusted locations for a wide range of services. The new service will help reinforce the unique position the branches have and, for the first time, give face-to-face parcel customers genuine choice over how they ship."

In chosen branches, Post Office customers will be able to walk up to a counter and choose to send their parcels with DPD. The announcement marks the continued diversification of the Post Office as it evolves to become a one-stop hub for customers and a place where they can choose the delivery carrier which best suits their needs. 

Neill O'Sullivan, MD of Parcels and Mails at Post Office, said: "Post Office is innovating to meet changing customer preferences and the increasingly competitive market. Our goal is to deliver unmatched access to parcel services, addressing the needs of businesses and retail customers, both now and in the future.

"Our Buy-in-Branch parcel service will not only widen delivery choice for our customers, but our in-person service provided by our dedicated Postmasters will also give them additional peace-of-mind knowing their parcels will be taken care of and arrive safely."
