How else can you speed up delivery?
You can speed up your delivery, by ensuring your parcel is packaged securely so that your parcel reaches the destination safely. Before sending, it’s also a good idea to check our list of prohibited items to make sure you aren’t sending something which can’t go through our network.
When sending a parcel abroad, always check that all of the paperwork has been completed in full and accurately in order to avoid delays at customs.
Are these available on International deliveries?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer morning delivery slots when sending a parcel abroad. However if you need your parcel to arrive quickly, we do have an express option for international parcels which means your parcel could reach the destination in as little as 2-3 days.
We recommend using our Worldwide Air Service, this is an express service designed specifically for urgent and time sensitive parcels. This service comes with proof of delivery and full tracking.
Running a business?
If you are an e-commerce seller, it can be good idea to offer priority delivery options on your website. Should a customer need an item urgently, they’ll be able to get it the next morning for a small extra cost. By offering customers a flexible delivery service, you should increase customer loyalty and remain competitive against large retailers who offer these options as standard.
Convenient delivery options
We believe receiving a parcel should be easy, and that’s why we have a range of rescheduling options should the recipient not be at home at the time of the delivery.
Recipients can reschedule their delivery to another day. Alternatively, they can opt to have it delivered to a safe place or neighbour. Note, these option are only available if the parcel doesn’t need to be signed for.
If the parcel does need to be signed for, the recipient can request that it is delivered to their local DHL Parcel UK ServicePoint. We have 3,500 ServicePoints across the UK which are open from 8am until late so recipients can collect their parcel before or after work.
