Deutsch Post is known in Germany as having the market monopoly when it comes to delivering letters, packages and parcels within Germany and Worldwide. The cost of postage entirely depends on the size and weight of the package. For more information, please visit their website deutschepost.de. More information regarding the rate list can also be obtained at any post office by requesting the free brochure “Leistungen und Preise”.
Alternatively, there is a more consumer-friendly provider, i.e. Hermes, who delivers within Germany as well as Europe. While Deutsche Post determines the price of a package by its size and its weight, Hermes exclusively calculates the cost of a package through its size. Hence, Hermes proves to be relatively cheaper for items that are comparatively heavy for their size. For more information, please visit their website here.
