DHL Express Singapore offers delivery option
A partnership with logistics company Blu has enabled courier company DHL Express Singapore to offer its customers a collection option.
At no extra charge, they can pick up their parcels at DHL Service Points, which include Blu’s network of nearly 50 terminals.
Recipients will receive an email or SMS with a link to the DHL Express on-demand delivery platform when their parcels are picked up in the country of origin. They can manage their delivery options on the platform and ask for their parcels to be directed to a BluPort Terminal.
Following this, SMS notifications are sent to parcel recipients to advise them of their personalised BluCode as well as collection expiry time. Shoppers will have 48 hours to collect their parcels from a BluPorts, with an automatic 24-hour extension.
“Through this partnership with Blu, our customers have the freedom to choose where and when they receive their parcels,” says DHL Express Singapore VP of operations Lyndon Morgan.
BluPorts launched in October last year, offering the first same-day self-collection option in Singapore.
