Dynamic Parcel Distribution, widely known by its acronym DPD, is an international parcel delivery company owned by GeoPost. It has more than 830 depots in more than forty countries, and is one of Europe’s leading business-to-business parcel delivery services. The company was founded in 1977 in Aschaffenburg, West Germany. In its first year of operation, over 1.4 million parcels were shipped. By 1980, this figure had risen to seven million per year. Today, two million parcels are shipped every day. DPD was originally Deutscher Paketdienst until 2008 (meaning German Parcel Service), and then rebranded to “Dynamic Parcel Distribution”. DPD is majority owned by GeoPost, a subsidiary of La Poste, France’s postal service. Geopost bought Parceline, which was based in the United Kingdom, and Ireland’s Interlink parcels service in November 2000, for around $277 million. Parceline was rebranded DPD in March 2008.
