“Our focus is always on the best possible customer service, which is why it was strategically important for DPD to consistently invest in our network of parcel shops and parcel stations,” said Rainer Schwarz, Managing Director of DPD Austria. “Together with our cooperation partners, we were able to offer our customers a comprehensive service even in lockdown times and we continue to build this consistently,” he added.

Of the 2,200 pickup locations, around 1900 of them are parcel shops while the rest can be found in pharmacies, petrol stations and even wine shops. The company has endeavored to ensure that 85% of them remain open after 6pm and many on the weekends too.
