DPD Germany has announced that Sunexpress has become a new strategic partner for its Pickup parcelshop network.
Through the partnership, customers will be able to receive or dispatch DPD parcels at up to 500 SunExpress travel agencies.
Commenting on the announcement, Michael Knaupe, Chief Customer Experience & Business Development Officer at DPD Deutschland, said:
“In SunExpress we have gained a partner that combines ideal locations and opening hours with a high level of quality awareness and service. The cooperation means that we can now conclude individual contracts with up to 500 travel agencies.”
Michael Schober, Senior Manager Direct Sales at SunExpress, added:
“The cooperation will be of great benefit to both sides. For us the focus is not only on increasing awareness but also on opening up new customer groups. It’s a great advantage that customers can see the participating travel agencies online in the DPD Parcelshop Finder.”
“We will benefit from the fact that the importance of parcel shops as drop-off points will increase significantly in the next few years, and thus attract more and more online shoppers to our travel agencies.”
