Covid-19 Update

We are still collecting and delivering parcels across the UK and delivering worldwide. All of our drivers are making contact-free collections and deliveries.

We have suspended all UK drop-off and collection services, as well as deliveries to some international destinations. The only UK service available is our Next Day door-to-door service. Please note, all domestic prices shown on the site are for this service.

What is a courier?


The definition of a courier is an exchange of item(s) from a company/individual to another party. In the parcel delivery industry this means sending a parcel, via a company, to a recipient.

The courier in this example is the ‘company’ or us, DHL Parcel UK. There are hundreds of couriers up and down the country. Some will operate across the UK and some will operate on an international scale. Others will do both of these services, giving you more options for your parcel delivery needs, like our service.

Unlike the traditional Post Office, a courier service offers more flexibility to get parcels to and from recipients. You won’t need to make unnecessary trips to the Post Office to collect your parcel either, instead a courier will deliver it right to your door.

Our courier service isn’t just a usual, run of the mill delivery service. At DHL Parcel UK – we are part of one the biggest courier networks globally. This means if you need to get a parcel delivered in the UK or you need to send a parcel Internationally you have the ability to do so simply and easily. This gives you, as a customer, more options and more freedom on where your parcel can be sent, whilst also benefiting from a speedy delivery and cheaper costs.
