How is my parcel handled in transit?

Your parcel will pass from articulated lorries to vans, through conveyor belts and down chutes. It will be lifted, slid from trays, and may be transported around depots in a metal cage. It is also handled by sorting staff as it progresses between sorting depots up and down the country, diverted in to the correct pathways for its destination like a ball in a pinball machine.

A courier delivery network is therefore not suitable for fragile items like glass, or valuables that are on the prohibited list and that may benefit from a more personal service. It is designed for well-packaged, clearly-labelled items that need to reach their destination quickly and with a proof of delivery.
