DPDgroup is the international parcel delivery network of GeoPost, a wholly-owned subsidiary of France’s La Poste. In order to focus on increasing growth, and create a greater sense of brand unity, GeoPost announced its new international and commercial brand identity, DPDgroup. The initial rebranding involved the design of the new logo and the integration of different brands, such as Chronopost, France, into the logo family of DPDgroup. DPDgroup’s marketing team has been relying on Bynder’s easy-to-use branding automation solution to deliver new branding and marketing materials to a large global team, and streamline their rebranding process.

Challenges

Unlike their competitors DHL, TNT and UPS, GeoPost did not have one unified brand, but different brands for different markets. To focus on increasing growth, particularly international, and create a greater sense of brand unity, GeoPost announced its new international commercial brand identity and parcel delivery network, DPDgroup. The initial rebranding involved the new design of the new logo and integrating different brands, such as Chronopost in France, into the logo family of DPDgroup. On March 18th 2015, the complete rebranding process was established in 22 European countries and will be strategically rolled out over the next 3 years.

How Bynder helped

DPDgroup now has a user-friendly and simple to use platform where updated, on-brand digital assets can be easily accessed by all departments. The connectability of the Bynder platform also allows users to integrate existing systems such as a CMS, streamlining the process from creation to cultivation and finally consumption. Thanks to vital branding information, rules and stylistic guidelines, which are accessible in the brand identity guidelines module, every employee can easily learn how to use Bynder and stay on-brand.

The creative project management module enables the company’s global marketing team to streamline and automate all projects and campaigns in their rebranding process. Features such as online proofing allow DPDgroup’s marketing team to create new brand assets that can be reviewed and approved directly via a web browser. DPDgroup’s brand managers are also able to keep a controlled overview of lengthy production processes. The web-to-print module, with smart templates and specific adaption in the final step of the design creation process, helps marketeers and brand managers ensure brand consistency.
