In Germany, letters are mainly delivered by Deutsche Post, though other companies such as DHL, UPS, GLS and Hermes help to transport packages.


If you send and/or receive packages regularly, it is recommended to use a DHL parcel station (Packstation). This service is free of charge and independent from opening hours. The usage of these stations has become widespread in Germany and offers the convenience of informing the recipient via email or text message when their shipment has arrived.
