Austrian Post and Deutsche Post DHL have agreed to work together into last mile deliveries in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
DHL Parcels will have their items delivered by Austrian Post’s subsidiary In Time s.r.o. Austrian Post parcels will be delivered by Deutsche Post DHL’s subsidiary PPL CZ s.r.o. The arrangements are set to begin in September.
“After the collaboration with Austrian Post in Austria both parties decided to further use each other’s delivery network as described in Slovakia and Czech Republic. With e-commerce on the rise and growing parcel volumes high quality and best-in-class customer experience in last-mile-delivery becomes increasingly a key differentiator and with this cooperation we will lay the right foundation for this”, said Petr Horak, Managing Director PPL CZ s.r.o. & DHL Parcel Slovensko.
Carsten Wallmann, Senior Vice President Turkey and Central, Eastern Europe Parcel, Austrian Post, commented: “We look forward to expanding our strategic partnership with DHL. We are confident that we will be able to convince the DHL customers thanks to our quality in last-mile-delivery and are pleased to have found a professional partner in the Czech Republic for our growing cross-border e-commerce business.”
