A birthday cake with a red marzipan ribbon was the visible sign that the deutsche post parcel center in kitzingen was celebrating its half-birthday. For 25 years, tens of thousands of parcels have been sent from there every day to customers in large parts of northern bavaria.
Strictly speaking, it was the 27. September 1994, when the parcel center – one of the first in germany – started operations on a 112,000 square meter site in the industrial area towards albertshofen. Today, it is one of 36 such centers maintained by deutsche post DHL. All incoming and outgoing parcels with a postal code beginning with 97 or 96 on the sender’s or recipient’s address are handled there. The area is almost congruent with lower and upper franconia.
