DHL makes sending parcels even simpler
Special campaign for introduction of the DHL Paketmarke ExpressBonn, 10/06/2004, 11:30 AM CEST
Starting immediately, DHL is also simplifying the shipment of express parcels for private customers and small-scale commercial shippers. Thanks to the new prepaid product DHL PAKETMARKE EXPRESS, the express parcel stamps, shipments weighing up to 5 kilograms can be franked at home, eliminating the need for paying the courier in cash. As usual, DHL picks up the shipment at the customer's address. After transport in the speedy DHL express network, the company then delivers them throughout Germany on the next working day-including Saturdays. Transport insurance of up to EUR 2,500 is covered in the service.
The launch of the DHL PAKETMARKE EXPRESS is being accompanied by intense advertising and a special promotion. In addition to TV commercials and advertisements in daily newspapers, DHL Express is sending a flyer to all households in Germany. The unaddressed mail advertisement contains a voucher allowing the holder to purchase three express parcel stamps for EUR 39.90 instead of the usual price of EUR 55.
As an additional offer, DHL PAKETMARKE DEUTSCHLAND (parcel stamps Germany) in a sheet of three stamps will also be available at a special price of EUR 15.90 instead of the usual EUR 19.50 during this introductory phase. These replace the previous prepaid product FREEWAY PAKETMARKE and enable customers to easily send pre-franked standard parcels weighing under 5 kilograms to anywhere in Germany. Additional stamps for weights of 10 and 20 kilograms are available for heavier shipments. The DHL PAKETMARKE thus serves as a stamp for parcels.
