DHL Express and Singapore-based retail logistics company, blu, announced a partnership to offer all DHL Express customers the option to directly collect their shipments from DHL Service Points. This includes blu’s island-wide network of over 55 bluPort Parcel Terminals. Provided at no additional cost, the service offers greater flexibility and convenience to recipients of home-bound parcels.
Under this partnership, DHL customers have the flexibility to direct their residential-bound parcels to a bluPort Terminal or any other DHL Service Point for collection at their convenience. 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 origin country. They can manage their delivery options on this platform and request for their parcels to be directed to a bluPort Terminal.
“The rise of e-commerce has established new shopping habits and expectations, as with the speed and convenience of parcel delivery, and Singapore is no exception. Through this partnership with blu, we hope to give our customers the freedom to choose where and when they receive their parcels. We will continue to enhance such options by expanding our network with trusted partners like blu, and innovating our service and offerings.” said Lyndon Morgan, Vice President of Operations, DHL Express Singapore.
