DPD and bol.com join forcesThe parcel deliverer does not stand still in 2015
Best, 20 January 2015 – DPD will support bol.com as a logistics service provider for ‘selling through bol.com’. With this model, bol.com offers other retailers in the Netherlands and Belgium the possibility to sell through bol.com. From February onwards, the cooperation will allow the sales partners of bol.com to easily send their sold products through DPD. DPD’s strong international network in combination with the focus on service and favourable pricing are a good addition to the shipping options for retailers who sell through bol.com.
“Our years of experience in the national and international B2B market, the focus on innovation and the strong logistical network have helped to create a complete offering for webshops. We are proud to receive recognition from the market. The welcoming of webshops as customers, like bol.com, shows we are on the right path,” said Robert van Straaten, Director Marketing & Sales of DPD Netherlands.
Constant developmentDPD strives towards constant development and focus on service to be able to serve the ecommerce market as best as possible. In recent years, the parcel deliverer launched new delivery and return options for webshops and consumers. The building of an international network of collection points and the development of opportunities for webshop integration supported this growth in the ecommerce market. DPD also introduced an online delivery service and has been able to further optimize the proactive delivery information for receiving customers.
Forward in 2015Van Straaten continues: “We most certainly won’t be standing still in 2015. Following DPD in the United Kingdom and Germany, we expect to be able to expand our Predict-service with Follow My Parcel. This allows us to not only inform the consumer of the one-hour timeslot in which the delivery will take place, it will also be possible to track the driver in real-time up to 15 minutes before delivery and make changes to the delivery. Furthermore, we are examining the possibility to also launch the Predict service for returning parcels that we pick up at consumers’ homes, so that people will no longer have to unnecessarily wait. Of course, we are also working hard to grow our international DPD Parcelshop network in Europe and possibilities for webshops integration are being developed further.”
Webwinkel VakdagenDuring the Webwinkel Vakdagen (ecommerce trade show), DPD informs, as a partner in ecommerce, the visitors about its products and services. DPD will be present with a stand during these days on 21 and 22 January.
