ORLEN Deutschland grows DHL Packstations business

ORLEN Deutschland GmbH and the Deutsche Post DHL Group are expanding the Packstation network throughout Germany at the almost 600 star and ORLEN petrol stations. The goal is to double the current offer of around 160 Packstations to over 300 by 2023. This year, the plan is to expand by 50 stations.

“In addition to providing a range of reliable and affordable quality fuels, it is important to us to offer our customers additional services at our star and ORLEN petrol stations. The DHL Packstations are well received and we are excited about the prospect of having a DHL Packstation at more than half of our petrol stations in future,” says Piotr Guział, Chief Development Officer of ORLEN Deutschland GmbH.

“Generally, the DHL Packstations are located in everyday central places, such as supermarkets, petrol stations or also on company premises. We are thus bringing our service even closer to our customers and making parcel shipping and receiving even more climate-friendly,” says Holger Bartels, Head of Multi-Channel Sales in the Post and Parcel Division of the Deutsche Post DHL Group. By 2023, DHL wants to expand the Packstation network to 15,000 machines nationwide.
