According to Ecommerce News, DPD, Hermes, GLS, and UPS are united in the very first multi-label parcel shop of Germany where customers can pick up or drop off packages from any of these logistics companies.

The multi-label parcel shop has now officially opened in a shopping center in Hamburg-Bergedorf after a one-year pilot. The whole idea behind the joint venture is that online shoppers have an easier point of contact. And the pilot project has shown that there’s some serious interest in these kinds of pick-up or drop-off points. During the test phase, the customer frequency increased from 230 to 1500 packages per month. Moreover, the total capacity is much larger.

With the project, the logistics companies want to reduce the number of times consumers need to go to certain pickup points. By bundling the major logistics companies, traffic to the city could be reduced as well as the accompanying air pollution.
