About Deutsche Post DHL
Deutsche Post DHL is one of the world’s leading logistics companies linking global trade and markets. It offers services ranging from domestic and international parcel deliveries to supply chain management solutions.
Headquartered in Germany, Deutsche Post DHL earlier operated as Deutsche Bundespost, a German mail delivery service. Deutsche Bundespost became a fully independent company in 2000, acquiring other logistics providers over the years. In 2016, Deutsche Post obtained UK Mail, which became its subsidiary. UK Mail Limited was later rebranded as DHL Parcel UK Limited, though it continued to use the former name to deliver mail and parcel shipments.
Currently, Deutsche Post DHL extends its presence to over 220 countries and employs more than six lakh employees. The company aims to become the first choice of customers for their deliveries as part of its Strategy 2025.
Deutsche Post DHL offers a range of services that can be loosely grouped under five broad divisions. The Germany post and parcel division of Deutsche Post deals with the sorting, management, and delivery of mail and documents both within the country and outside. DHL Express provides domestic and international deliveries for the CEP (courier, express, and parcel) division.
In addition, they offer global freight forwarding for land, air, and ocean freight. Deutsche Post DHL’s eCommerce solutions make last-mile and cross-border deliveries easier for its customers. The provider even offers supply chain solutions tailor-made for your business in matters such as warehousing and distribution, transport, and value-added services.
The company has also recently ventured into electric van manufacturing by acquiring StreetScooter GmbH, a German electric vehicle manufacturer. Deutsche Post DHL aims to replace its delivery vehicles deployed in Germany with electric vehicles and decarbonize its operations.
ClickPost has tracking and carrier API integrations with Deutsche Post DHL, which allows it to not only pull shipment tracking information from Deutsche Post DHL’s website but also to ensure a smooth and hassle-free e-commerce shipping experience for its customers.
