Deutsche Post DHL is offering German households the chance to have their own individual parcel boxes installed, to receive parcels when they are out.
The German national postal operator has described it as the “greatest development” in the mail industry since the humble mailbox came along.
The company said residential customers anywhere in Germany can rent its DHL Paketkasten or buy one outright.
It will mean e-commerce consumers do not have to collect their parcels from a local parcel shop or public parcel terminal.
