Drop off parcels - quickly and easily

Sending parcels has never been so easy: Simply give franked parcels and returns to one of our delivery agents while on their delivery route. The prerequisite is that the delivery agent has sufficient free loading capacity in their delivery vehicle.

No printer? No problem! Simply show the QR code of your mobile parcel stamp or your mobile return label on your smartphone and our delivery agent will take care of printing it out. The receipt for parcels and returns is of course included, as with all our other drop-off points.
