DHL Express, a global provider of international express shipping services, has recently opened a drive-up, mobile pop-up retail store in Woodbridge, Virginia. Located in the Potomac Mills shopping center, the 2,200-cubic-feet mobile DHL ServicePoint provides a drive-up window for a safe, easy shipping option for customers.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an unprecedented increase in international shipping in the area, and we continue to explore ways to adapt and offer an even safer shipping experience for our customers,” said Chet Paul, SVP of Commercial for DHL Express U.S. “With the addition of this unique model in Woodbridge, customers will now be able to complete all transactions without having to leave their car. The DHL ServicePoint is part of our overall retail strategy to be closer and more accessible to consumers.”
The Woodbridge ServicePoint is the first drive-up pop-up store within the DHL Express U.S. network. Customers may access the unit either via the drive-up window or in the store. An efficient point-of-sale system is capable of processing shipments to U.S destinations as well as any of the 220 countries and territories DHL serves. Supplies such as bubble wrap, packing tape and DHL-branded boxes are available at the mobile unit. In response to social-distancing concerns, this DHL ServicePoint also offers safety features such as the Call Ahead service where labels and packaging are ready when the customer arrives.
