DHL deliveries from the US - reroute to Post Office?

We've had all sorts of fun in the past chasing parcels around the country when UPS or TNT haven't been able to deliver them to our apartment during office hours. Like, I assume, many households, there is never anybody home during the day.

Now we have a parcel coming from America via DHL. I've never used DHL before, so was hoping someone could tell me if you can have them deliver to the local post office if no-one is in? I was sure I'd heard this somewhere, but maybe it's just wishful thinking. Does anyone know?

Work doesn't allow it, otherwise I would.

Re: DHL deliveries from the US - reroute to Post Office?

If it is delivered by dhl air (or dhl-deliver now), you can redirect your Parcel
to a new address (for example a friend) or pick it up at two post offices
(located in 8021 Zurich or Regensdorf).
if it is delivered by swiss post , you can pick it up at your local post office
