PostNord deepens relationship with DPDgroup

PostNord Group and DPDgroup have agreed to work together for the next five years to achieve a more harmonised delivery service between Europe and the Nordics. The cooperation agreement signed this week is designed to improve service for shippers and receivers with a range of business, home and out-of-home delivery solutions.

Between them, both PostNord and DPD have the densest parcel shop network in the region with more than 46,000 locations. They also offer out-of-home delivery and return solutions in 27 countries. 

The deal entrusts DPDgroup with PostNord’s international parcel volumes shipped from Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway to the rest of Europe. DPDgroup is doing the same with PostNord in the Nordics.

This deal was originally signed in part in 2002 and over the last 18 years has deepened to a robust cooperation that tightly connects both parcel networks and offers 1-2 day lead times from dispatch to delivery across the region.

Nordic customers will benefit from the extension of the parcel shop network in accelerating e-commerce between the Nordic states and the rest of Europe.

“DPDgroup and PostNord have been partners for a long time, and I am pleased to have extended our agreement. For PostNord it is imperative to continue expanding our international activities and the agreement with DPDgroup is a good fit,” said Peter Kjaer Jensen, Deputy CEO of PostNord Group.

“Our partnership is a long and successful one. We are enthusiastic to develop further our cooperation and business with PostNord. Our partnership offer DPDgroup’s customers a seamless connection to 25 million consumers in the Nordic region and access to 6,800 local parcel shops,” said Boris Winkelmann, Executive Vice President of GeoPost / DPDgroup.
