DHL Parcel and POST Luxembourg have signed a strategic partnership on cross-border parcel shipping which will see POST Luxembourg become part of the DHL Parcel Europe network.
Managed by DHL Parcel, the name of the service being offered is called Parcel Connect. It runs through cooperation with other parcel service providers in Europe.
Initially, the services offered will only cover delivery of parcels from Europe to Luxembourg (import). The cooperation with POST Luxembourg will allow the DHL Parcel Europe network to benefit from improved transit times to Luxembourg and to gain access to the country’s largest network of service points and parcel stations.
In a second phase, POST Luxembourg will also offer export services from Luxembourg (Parcel Connect Export).
“With POST Luxembourg as a new strategic partner, we are able to offer a service for Luxembourg that is even better tailored to the needs of B2C e-commerce customers,” said Achim Dünnwald, CEO of DHL Parcel. “This extends our proven ‘Parcel Union’ partnership model to ten partners in 14 countries, in its third year of existence. In other markets too, we are continuing to work on gaining ‘local heroes’ as partners and on expanding our harmonized Parcel Connect service throughout Europe.”
Hjoerdis Stahl, Deputy Managing Director of POST Luxembourg and Director of POST Courier explained: “On average, around 9,000 parcels from Europe arrive at our national sorting center. Thanks to Parcel Connect, we are able to offer our customers an even better service and hope to further increase this volume,” she continues. “The cooperation with DHL Parcel, and as a member of the DHL Parcel Europe network, also emphasizes the positioning of POST Luxembourg in the logistics area, in which we see good opportunities for growth.”
Parcel Connect was introduced by Deutsche Post DHL in 2014. Following the addition of Luxembourg, 26 countries belong to the DHL Parcel Europe network.
