DHL integrates Sweden into its European parcel network

DHL integrates Sweden into its European parcel network

DHL Parcel has taken over the management of the Swedish 1,350-service point parcel network that was previously run by DHL Freight. In a statement issued today (3 December), parent company Deutsche Post DHL said that DHL Freight will remain the partner for transport and delivery of items within Sweden.

DHL Parcel officially assumed control of the network on 1 November.

Commenting on the move, Fabian Düx, Senior Vice President of Unattended Delivery at DHL Parcel Europe, said:  “Thanks to this presence in Sweden, we have now integrated the primary market of Northern Europe into our parcel network and passed another milestone on the road to having a dedicated B2C infrastructure for Europe.

“The team led by our Nordics CEO, Morten Villberg, is highly motivated to becoming the clear number 2 in the Swedish parcel market.”

DHL Parcel will now rebrand the Service Points in Sweden into DHL Parcelshops.

With Sweden on board, DHL now has more than 10,000 Parcelshops in Europe outside of Germany that are managed across borders under a single brand.

Sweden is an important part of the ParcelShop network, because – in contrast to most other European countries – private parcel shipments are not generally delivered to the receivers’ homes.

“In fact, more than 90% of all B2C items are delivered to Parcelshops,” according to Deutsche Post DHL.
