Kontich/Mechelen, 20 June 2022 - For the first time a parcel delivery service in our country cooperates with a car brand: in a first stage, a dozen Suzuki dealers were appointed as official DPD distribution points. This turns out to be a win-win-win situation, first of all for the customer, but also for DPD and Suzuki.
Erik De Nutte, Marketing & Pickup Manager DPD: “DPD is continually looking for locations to optimise the sending and receiving of parcels. The extra distribution points in the Suzuki showroom network are a real success in our opinion. Customers appreciate the proximity, the spacious parking and the pleasant welcome in the new distribution points.”
Bart Hendrickx, PR Manager Suzuki Belgium: “Suzuki Belgium is always looking for new ideas to increase the brand awareness of our brand and our dealers. It is great that we are able to start a new initiative together with DPD, which will benefit both parties and the customer."
The advantages in brief:
- Customers can collect or send their parcels at a partner with a spacious, easily accessible parking;
- DPD expands its network with a number of qualitative distribution points;
- Suzuki gets additional potential customers who get to know the brand's cars this way.
About ten Suzuki dealers started a few months ago as a distribution point for DPD, with success. Meanwhile, an average of 240 DPD customers per month were visiting each dealer, with peaks of up to 680!
This already resulted in additional sales of Suzuki cars and many appointments for maintenance and repairs, also for other brands.
