DHL Express Singapore has partnered with SingPost to boost the number of pick-up points across the island to 400, by including more than 160 PopStations.
The freight company says the new initiative boosts last-mile and digital capabilities within the DHL Express network, to satisfy consumer demands for greater speed, flexibility and accessibility of delivery options. It also addresses the number of failed deliveries due to people not being home to sign for parcels.
A further 46 Parcel Santa lockers are expected to be added to the network by the end of this year as well.
Yasmin Khan, acting country manager at DHL Express Singapore said the rise of e-commerce has established new shopping habits and expectations of the speed and convenience of package delivery.
“We hope to help deliver an exceptional online shopping experience to customers here from the first click, to the last mile by delivering packages when they want them, where they want them. We aim to do this by expanding our network, leveraging innovation across our service and offerings to better meet the needs of online shoppers.”
