ParcelLock, Germany’s first “neutral” system for delivering B2C parcels to consumer homes when the recipient is absent, now plans to set up public parcelboxes as alternatives to DHL’s Packstations, according to its new managing director. Gunnar Anger, who took charge at the start of this year, claimed the innovative system launched by joint owners Hermes, DPD and GLS a year ago had made a successful start to business. The company is now working on the development of parcels stations in public places open to everyone, he said in an online interview published by Hermes.
