As the ShipStation team has taken up a brief residence in London this week, we are excited to extend more delivery options to our friends across the pond with our new partnership with DPD.
This leading parcel delivery giant is known for its exceptional customer service and infrastructure and offers online merchants a customer-centric delivery experience.
Existing DPD customers can connect their current business account in ShipStation to take advantage of efficient dispatch tools, and merchants without an existing DPD account or contract can now directly access rates with the ShipStation Carrier Services program.
DPD and ShipStation Carrier Services
ShipStation Carrier Services provides immediate access to our partner courier services allowing users to print labels as soon as they start with ShipStation. That means no hassle, no paperwork, and no commitments, even as soon as you start a trial.
Users can set up auto-funding and maintain a single, pay-as-you-go balance to start printing competitively-priced labels for DPD.
ShipStation Carrier Services currently supports DPD drop-off services from domestic Two Day to Next Day, as well as Saturday service and DPD Classic international service to 24 countries. There are more than 2,500 convenient drop-off points.
Delivery 7 days a week with options to customize the delivery experience
DPD delivers 7 days a week in the UK, giving merchants even greater choice.
And thanks to DPD’s industry-leading Predict service, merchants can provide customers with a one-hour delivery window. Customers will get notified by SMS and email, and they can watch the progress in real-time online or in the YourDPD app. This means less waiting in all day for parcels and more getting things done!
DPD has over 11,000 people working across the UK, operating more than 8,000 vehicles from 63 locations and delivers over 230 million parcels a year. A company that values efficiency, customer experience, and their employees is a company we can get behind.
Their state-of-the-art infrastructure includes a Superhub that can sort up to 72,000 parcels per hour. This is the largest of its kind in Europe and just one example of how DPD ensures efficient and timely deliveries.
