Initial City Link

As one of the best known British despatch and delivery companies, Initial City Link have depots located up and down the UK. City Link was founded in 1969 and has grown since then. As a carrier of something like 225,000 separate consignments each day, the amount of freight handled by this company is significant and to some extent justifies the company's claim that they are the UK's leading premium express delivery company.

    If you have a parcel, pallet or document you need to ship in a hurry within the UK, get an instant quote right here for a TNT Same Day collection and delivery.

    This is a documents service for papers only. Your documents must weigh 1.5kg or less when packaged and be 40cm x 30cm x 5cm or smaller in size.

    Package your documents in a cardboard envelope, not paper, so they can withstand transportation within a large courier network (?). Measure the dimensions for your envelope in the same way as you would measure a parcel, using 1cm for anything less than 1cm in size.
