Deutsche Post plays pass the Swiss parcel

Deutsche Post (Switzerland) AG, a fully owned subsidiary of Europe’s largest postal
service provider DPWN, is a public limited company under Swiss law and specialises in parcel logistics. It was founded in autumn 1991 by the merger of two Swiss parcel logistics operators, quickstep parcel service AG and Qualipac AG.
Under the product name Swisspack, Deutsche Post (Switzerland) Euro Express offers a nationwide, timedefined parcel delivery service for consignments up to 31.5 kg in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. The parcels are delivered by a fleet of nearly 400 vehicles via several modern automated hubs (we have such hubs at Pratteln, Regensdorf and Altishofen, for example).
With another of our products, the Europremium service, shipments (import I export) of up to 800 kg per pallet are delivered to and from Switzerland to some twenty European countries.
When we entered this market in 1992, door-to-door pick-up services and a track&trace system for parcels were still completely new ideas. Since then, we have continued to refine our IT systems.
