DHL Gets Serious About Nordic E-Commerce Jürgen Gerdes

DHL Gets Serious About Nordic E-Commerce

2016-03-11 14:55

Three logistic companies join hands in the Nordics to strengthen the B2C e-commerce in the area.

The global logistics company DHL now moves into the Nordics in a big way. Together with the local postal operators Bring, a part of the Norwegian post, and Finnish Posti they will provide "the largest parcel shop network in this area", according to the company.

DHL's delivery network in Scandinavia, Finland and the Baltics will include 6,500 parcel shops and parcel stations by the end of 2016. Unlike in other European markets, it is not common for parcels to be delivered to the customers’ doorstep in these countries.

Saturday Delivery

Together with Bring and Posti they hope to increase service levels and strengthen cross-border e-commerce in the area.

- Many of our customers today already ship items to the countries in northern Europe. Together with our local partners, we want to help them grow their business and develop the e-commerce market in these countries as best as possible, said Jürgen Gerdes, CEO parcel and e-commerce at Deutsche Post DHL Group.

Starting the first of April the new collaboration promises shorter transit times, Saturday delivery and arrival notifications to make online retailing more successful in the Nordic region.

- Together with our partners we provide the infrastructure and service levels that serve as the foundation for successful online retailing, said Jürgen Gerdes.

DHL Parcel will now be present in 16 European countries including their home market Germany.
