DHL launches parcel shipping in Switzerland
DHL has created DHL Parcel (Switzerland) AG to focus on parcel shipping within Switzerland and it has begun operating this month.
Thanks to a close network of DHL ServicePoints, which has been set up with local partners, DHL Parcel can offer its parcel services on consumer-friendly terms.
Digitalization is creating new needs, with the growth in online commerce, in particular, offering enormous potential. The e-commerce market is thus giving rise to great growth opportunities for online retailers.
A key factor for sustainable success in e-commerce is customer satisfaction in parcel shipping
DHL Parcel is supporting all commercial and private shipping customers in Switzerland with a future-oriented and tailor-made logistics service – one that offers customer-friendly opening hours at DHL ServicePoints, short delivery times, Saturday delivery and ease of handling. Swiss-based companies can pass on this added value to their customers and benefit themselves from attractive conditions.
“An essential part of our strategy is to be represented in the key European markets,” explains Achim Dünnwald, CEO DHL Parcel Europe. “Market entry into Switzerland is another important milestone in this respect. A total of 27 countries (including Switzerland) now belong to the DHL Parcel Europe network.”
Günter Birnstingl, CEO DHL Parcel (Switzerland) AG, adds: “We would like to offer our customers in Switzerland a modern and forward-looking logistics service that meets not only the requirements of parcel shipping but also the wishes of the end customer. This includes the launch of innovative services – such as standard evening and Saturday delivery – with extended opening hours and a comprehensive package at an attractive price.”
