First DHL and Hermes announced higher prices, now competitor DPD is following suit. Here, too, shipping will soon become more expensive. The company has not yet announced exact prices.

If you want to send a parcel with DPD, you might have to dig a little deeper into your pocket in the future. “We are selectively increasing the prices in order to take into account the current significant cost increases,” said a DPD spokeswoman for the German Press Agency. She did not give details of the private customer prices.

The competitors Deutsche Post DHL and Hermes had previously increased their prices – some categories of shipment were more expensive, others not.

Higher costs are causing problems for the entire logistics industry: The fuel for trucks and vans has become more expensive and wages for employees have risen. Now DPD is also reacting.
