Highway rest area in Pratteln offers new package and document drop-offBasel, 10/02/2007, 11:30 AM CEST
Four months after starting with 72 Servicepoints at major Swiss train stations, DHL Express (Schweiz) AG is today opening its 100th Servicepoint in Switzerland, at the Autogrill rest area in Pratteln. This means that national and international packages and documents can now be sent via the worldwide DHL transport network from the A2 highway.
Thanks to the new collaboration with Autogrill, customers can send packages and documents to national and international destinations seven days a week. Delivery takes place on the next working day, even if the item is dropped off late in the afternoon. The partnership model with Autogrill is entirely in keeping with the Servicepoint concept: good accessibility at central locations, convenient business hours as well as a simple process at reasonable prices.
No weight restrictions
The new domestic shipment of parcels is being made easier by a simplified pricing structure. The three parcel sizes (small, medium and large) are based solely on dimensions, irrespective of weight. Additional benefits include a second delivery free-of-charge if the recipient is absent as well as optimum security thanks to delivery against signature. For domestic shipments, DHL Express (Schweiz) AG has developed its own "A-PAC" parcel stamp. This allows the sender to track the current location of the package online at any time using an ID number.
