In India the same facility is often used to book and drop or pickup
packages if missed, not sure if its same there. And not sure about if this
tag should be used for places only for pickup or sub tag should be made.

And in case of Germany, search tells Deutsche Post is still the name used
for post offices in Germany, and those should be marked as post offices and
other wings under Dhl still has different names like Dhl express etc.
