Shipping from Switzerland through Deutsche Post

Is it possible (especially right now with corona) to ship from Switzerland (without crossing the border) through the German Post?

Border regulations are only going to get stricter. I don't even know if I can cross the border to drop off my packages to a German post office. I was wondering if it was somehow possible to ship them from Switzerland.

The German Post has an online stamp service so I can prep everything at home. However, I don't know who or where to give the packages to to be shipped.

Does anyone know a way? Thank you for your time.

well, if you use a stamp or a parcel Number of the german post, you need to
bring it over the border to a post agency or post office.
The swiss post can't use german barcodes or will not allow german stamps.

You can still go over the border for shopping or visit the post office.
It is allowed , when you stay max 24 hours in germany without leaving your adress or details
when you enter germany.

No, you have to cross the border to weil am rhein or lörrach

There is only a swiss post office at the station
