DHL and Austrian Post strengthen collaboration

Following on from their partnership in the Austrian market announced in March, Deutsche Post DHL Group and Austrian Post will also collaborate on last-mile parcel delivery in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, starting in September 2019.

In Time (a subsidiary of Austrian Post) will deliver parcels sent by DHL customers to Slovakia, while DHL subsidiary PPL CZ will do the same for Austrian Post customers sending packages to the Czech Republic.

“After the collaboration with Austrian Post in Austria both parties decided to further use each other’s delivery network as described in Slovakia and the Czech Republic,” said Petr Horak, managing director PPL CZ and DHL Parcel Slovensko. 

“With e-commerce on the rise and growing parcel volumes, high-quality and best-in-class customer experience in last-mile-delivery becomes increasingly a key differentiator and with this cooperation we will lay the right foundation for this.”
