A few weeks ago, the German logistics company DHL announced that it will establish a delivery service for Päckli in Switzerland. The opening of the first warehouse in Switzerland shows that DHL is seriously affected by the attack on the post office.
Shipments in Switzerland are thriving. This is a pleasure to the post office. But also Swiss online retailers whose main partners are parcel services. You now have more options, as DHL's competition in Switzerland is rising. And could provide lower prices.
A few weeks ago, the German logistics company DHL announced that it will establish a delivery service for Päckli in Switzerland. Now it turns out that the Germans are serious. Today DHL Parcel (Switzerland) Winterthur ZH has commissioned the first parcel warehouse in Switzerland. "Zurich and Winterthur metropolitan areas will be delivered with the new depot," says Blick spokeswoman.
Up to 9,000 shipments per day
From there, shipments are shipped to Switzerland. DHL has 29 Winterthur jobs. In the future, 60 employees will work in the shipment and delivery service. That is when the parcel center has expanded and can handle up to 9,000 shipments per day.
The building, which is mainly made of wood, can be expanded in a short time. For example, a depot can be extended during the season, as the company writes in a report. Günter Birnstingel is pleased: "With the opening of the warehouse, we have made a significant turnaround in the further expansion of our DHL network in Switzerland."
