DPD app reaches 2 million users

DPD’s Your DPD application has reached two million user downloads. The app is “at the heart of DPD’s comprehensive plans for another record breaking Christmas, with an anticipated 28 million DPD parcels to be delivered between Black Friday and Christmas Eve.”

Features include a half-hour heads-up push notification, live driver tracking, preferred neighbours, multiple delivery addresses, safe place pictures, delivery between school runs and the option of a second delivery attempt, as the app can automatically notify the driver when customers have returned home.

“We’re ready for Christmas. As always, we’ve planned every detail and our team has been working on it since January to make sure we deliver a record breaking peak,” said Dwain McDonald, DPD CEO. “With 2 million customers now using the app it does really start to make a difference to the operation. This Christmas will feel very different. More customers will be in full control of their delivery and be able to take advantage of a wide range of ‘in-flight options’ and enhanced features.”
