Parcel Force has been trading in the UK since 1990 when it was rebranded from the parcel section of the Royal Mail. In 2002 Parcel Force transferred the transportation of parcels back to the Royal Mail and Parcel Force was left to deliver only the guaranteed delivery parcels, such as next day and express two day deliveries. The service used to guarantee delivery of parcels is called Parcel Force tracking service.

Tracking Parcelforce Worldwide
In the United Kingdom Parcel Force has 53 local delivery depots with a central hub depot in Coventry. The main hub in Coventry is divided into two with one being for national and one for international deliveries.
Parcelforce Track and Trace
Parcel Force tracking service is available on all parcels. The system works by giving each parcel sent a barcode. This barcode is then scanned at every step of the delivery process, from the point where it is taken from the customer to the point of delivery to the recipient. Every time the parcel is moved, be it to be sorted into a depot box, or to be put onto a delivery truck the barcode is scanned and the action that has been performed is recorded. Using a unique tracking code the customer or recipient can then track the progress of the parcel and see where the parcel is in the delivery process. Parcels can even be tracked worldwide where the partner delivery service used allows for tracking.
Parcelforce Tracking 48
If your parcel is then not delivered on time or lost in transit the last person to scan the parcel will be located and the last place your parcel was can easily be traced to enable your parcel to be located. When a parcel sent using Parcel Force tracking is delivered to the end recipient it must be signed for completing the tracking process and making sure the parcel has reached the correct person.
