Amazon Locker or DHL Packstation - differences and similarities?

Essentially, they work DHL Packstation and the Amazon Locker in the same way: the parcel service provider does not deliver the parcel or parcel directly to the recipient, but to a collecting station on their behalf. Here, the delivery can be picked up by the recipient after authentication. With the DHL Packstation (sometimes also called "DHL Paketstation") you need a tracking number just like with the Amazon Locker and you have to identify yourself as a natural person. Once the entry has been made successfully, the parcel box opens on both systems and the shipment can be removed. After a short confirmation on the touchscreen, the shipment is recorded as "successfully delivered" in the respective Amazon or DHL system. The difference between DHL Packstation and Amazon Locker lies in the number of stations (DHL currently has around 3,400 Packstations in around 1,600 German cities, while Amazon has only set up 400 Lockers across Germany) and in the delivery of delivery services. The DHL Packstation is supplied exclusively by DHL's own delivery service and the Amazon Locker by the service providers from Amazon Logistics.
