In the wake of global inflation, Deutsche Post is also raising prices for private customers. You can find out how much shipping your package will cost in the future here.
The branch of the DHL Post Office raises parcel prices for private customers from 1 July. “The rising costs of transport, delivery and wages, as well as the general increase in costs, make price increases in domestic and cross-border parcel shipments inevitable,” the company justified on Monday.
These are the new prices
In the future, there will be no more price advantages for parcels and parcel brands purchased online for domestic parcels. Branch and online prices in the Päckchen S product category rise to € 3.99 from the previous € 3.79. For the M package, 4.79 euros should be paid after the previous 4.50 euros or 4.39 euros. The price of the two-kilogram package, available only online, has gone from € 4.99 to € 5.49.
With the abolition of price differences between brands purchased online and in branch offices, the company is reducing complexity and making its package prices clearer for customers, the Post said. According to Swiss Post, parcels and plus parcels are also becoming somewhat more expensive due to rising card costs. In contrast, the branch price for the package most used by private customers will be five kilograms less at 6.99 euros, 50 cents.
