The ‘Your DPD’ app enables customers to create their own profile, set their delivery preferences and track deliveries, as well as make specific requests for occasions when they are not going to be at home for a delivery.
The firm are also aiming to limit missed deliveries with new, smartphone geo-location based technology that alerts drivers when an app user returns home.
DPD's CEO Dwain McDonald commented: "Our mission is to use the best technology available to put customers in complete control of their own deliveries. Our unique Predict and then Follow My Parcel services helped personalise parcel delivery.
“The Your DPD app takes that personalisation to a whole new level by letting you build your own delivery profile and dictate how you want to receive your DPD parcels.
"For the first time, customers can genuinely create their own parcel plan and be confident that whatever happens, they will have a range of choices, up to the minute information and real-time in-flight options to ensure they never miss a delivery again.
“The app is yet another example of how DPD's technology is streets ahead of every other delivery company, and is the reason why our drivers continue to deliver a service that is second to none."
