The Benefits of Parcel Delivery Services

Parcel delivery services involve the shipment of parcels or packages generally in terms of a single shipment. In addition, mail that is regarded as 'high-value' is also sent via the parcel delivery system.

    Same Day Service

    Same Day Delivery

    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.

    DHL Parcel Delivery Services

    Whilst parcel delivery services have always and continue to be provided by the national postal system, which in the UK is of course, the Royal Mail, they no longer are the sole providers of this type of service.

    International Parcel Delivery

    With the advent of online shopping or E-commerce, the demand for delivery services, especially inexpensive ones, has dramatically increased. Indeed, within the last two decades or so, an increasing number of private parcel delivery services have been established, which in adding to the competitive nature of this service has also served to improve it. Deliveries are available across the world: cheap parcel delivery to Latvia, courier from America to UK, parcel delivery to Tunisia, and secure parcel delivery to Brazil.

    Parcel Delivery Companies

    Most companies now have a 'track and trace' facility in place, which allows the sender to access the status of their shipment. Many also offer guarantees of next day delivery and, in the case of regional carriers, can often do this at relatively low rates.

    The parcels can nonetheless be unavoidably subjected to a certain amount of stress within the complicated process of handling and sorting. Therefore, specially designed packaging is generally required for parcel delivery, especially in cases where the contents may be fragile. Materials such as bubble wrap or reinforced cardboard are examples of appropriate packaging.

    These days, parcel delivery services can also be booked online, eradicating the need for travelling or queuing. Online companies such as P4D are now operating in tandem with numerous couriers and are able to offer delivery services at discounted prices in addition to providing a number of convenient extra services.

    For example, with P4D you are able to carbon offset your shipment, set up links to your online shop or choose to 'round up your pound for charity' whereby your change will be instantly donated to a worthwhile cause.
