DHL has launched a new company that will deliver parcels within Switzerland called DHL Parcel (Switzerland) AG. The company began operating this month.
DHL Parcel Switzerland will be using the existing network of DHL ServicePoints that have already been set up with local partners.
The company believes that the growth of e-commerce has developed the market for the new company to operate in. It will be opened to business to business (B2B), Business to customer (B2C) and private individuals (C2C). It claims that it will have shorts delivery times, Saturday delivery that will make it competitive in the Swiss parcel delivery market.
“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.”
