New pickup and shipping options

Posted by Siegfried Neubauer on

On July 1, 2023, Swiss Post increased the rates for letters and parcels. It is not the first time since last year that postal rates have been raised, some of them sharply.

The tariff increases have led us to consider another alternative to postal delivery. On the one hand, the shipping option with DPD has been around for some time, on the other hand, we have also considered GLS as a shipping partner.

These two private service providers offer us a wealth of options and alternatives to post, sometimes even well below the postal rate.

GLS now gives you the option of having parcels sent to your home or depositing them at a parcel station. In principle, both variants would also be possible with DPD, but experience has shown that very often deliveries are only made to parcel stations and the customer has to arrange for collection.

The overall picture with collection and parcel shipping is now as follows:

Click & Collect: Order online with collection from the outlet, Welthonig im Rabenhof, Hainburger Straße 68-70/45/1, 1030 Vienna (please note collection times)

GLS shipping to parcel station

GLS shipping to delivery address with a small premium

DPD shipping to parcel station

Parcel shipment by post to delivery address

Delivery with Veloce messenger service, same-day delivery within the city limits of Vienna

You can clearly see from the list how versatile online trading has become. Almost every online order has different requirements for collection and shipping and we hope to meet these high customer demands with our new shipping partner GLS.

The current opening hours for Click & Collect orders can be found in the Welthonig webshop under opening times .
