Deutsche Post DHL Group has strengthened its co-operation with Austrian Post in Slovakia and Czech Republic.
In order to create profitable growth in the booming cross-border e-commerce business, the companies will collaborate in last-mile parcel delivery in Slovakia and Czech Republic. Under the agreement, In Time s.r.o., a subsidiary of Austrian Post, will deliver parcels sent by DHL customers to Slovakia, while Deutsche Post DHL Group’s Czech subsidiary, PPL CZ s.r.o. will deliver parcels sent by Austrian Post customers to Czech Republic. Both relationships are expected to begin in September 2019.
“After the collaboration with Austrian Post in Austria both parties decided to further use each other’s delivery network as described in Slovakia and Czech Republic. With e-commerce on the rise and growing parcel volumes high quality and best-in-class customer experience in last-mile delivery becomes increasingly a key differentiator and with this co-operation we will lay the right foundation for this,” commented Petr Horak, Managing Director PPL CZ s.r.o. & DHL Parcel Slovensko.
Customers stand to benefit from high-quality parcel delivery services, including short delivery times for shipments. The collaboration will thus allow both parties to create further profitable growth and tap the potential of the growing cross-border e-commerce business.
