DHL Parcel Lockers Will Arrive in K-Group Stores

DHL Express has signed a cooperation agreement with the K-Group, which will make DHL service points available at Kesko stores in various parts of Finland.

Commenting on the move, Peter Ervasalo, Managing Director of DHL Express Finland said, "The growth of e-commerce has meant that the number of shipments we transport has increased, as has the number of private customers.

"We want to make sending parcels as simple as possible and the K-Group's wide retail store network provides excellent opportunities to offer private customers new service options at locations where they shop anyway, making their transactions even easier."

In the initial stages, DHL parcel lockers will receive both international and domestic parcels shipped via DHL Express, and at a later stage, it will be possible to send parcels through the parcel lockers also. At DHL service points, both options will be available.

By 2017, it is expected that DHL services will be available in proximately 250-300 locations.
