Birthday celebrations at DPD: Germany’s first private parcel service was founded 40 years ago

  • From Germany’s leading shipper of parcels for business customers to a major service provider on the European parcel market
  • Every day DPD now transports more than twice as many parcels as in the entire year of its establishment
  • Dynamic business growth in the age of digitalisation and e-commerce

Aschaffenburg, 1 April 2016 – Today international parcel and express service provider DPD is celebrating its birthday: on 1 April 1976 the company was founded as a joint venture by 18 leading freight forwarders. Within only a few years DPD had grown to become Germany’s market leader in parcel shipping for business customers. DPD has maintained this position to the present day and – in line with the growth in online retailing – has developed into a major player in parcel shipping to private customers.
