“Strong customer response is motivating us to pursue a determined expansion drive for Packstation”, says Steffen Frankenberg, DHL’s Packstation project manager. The first Packstation machines for private customers were set up in Dortmund and Mainz in January 2002.
Since then their number has gone up and up. Today, more than 700 Packstation machines are in use in over 120 towns and cities, with around 30 more by the end of 2007.
Packstation enables registered customers to collect and send off small packets and parcels 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As soon as a shipment is ready for collection customers are sent a text message or e-mail. For customers sending parcels via a Packstatio, parcel stamps are available for sale at the machine.
