DHL Parcel and Deutsche Annington have teamed up to offer renters another innovative solution for receiving their parcels. Beginning in April, DHL will install private parcel delivery boxes (Paketk√§sten) in apartment houses managed by Deutsche Annington, Germany’s largest housing company. As part of an initial pilot project, selected locations in Berlin and Dortmund will be equipped with the parcel boxes, with additional boxes planned. The DHL parcel box will allow renters to receive their parcel items at any time regardless of whether they are home or not, saving them an extra trip to a postal outlet or neighbor. The locked box also ensures that parcels remain protected against theft. Customers can not only receive parcels using the parcel box, but can also send returns or other stamped parcels directly from home.

“When our renters come home their parcels will be there waiting for them. We pride ourselves on the service we provide our renters, and we want to continue providing these kinds of extra services into the future,” says Konstantina Kanellopoulos, Head of Product Management at Deutsche Annington. The DHL parcel boxes installed in the apartments can be accessed conveniently via RFID chip or hand scanner, and can be used free of charge by all renters in the respective buildings.
