DPD UK is a member of one of Europe’s leading parcel groups, DPDgroup, wholly owned by France’s La Poste.
In the UK, DPD is the fastest growing major parcel delivery company with a turnover over £1billion and voted the Nation’s favourite parcel company by MoneySavingExpert.com, five years running.
DPD has 11,000 people, 8,000 vehicles, 65 depots, 2,500 parcel stores, two hub sortation facilities and a reputation for being the most innovative carrier in the express parcels sector.
DPD’s Predict means customers receive a one-hour delivery window via SMS/ email, so they don’t need to wait in all day. Follow My Parcel allows customers to watch the progress of their parcel, on a real-time map, with a final 15-minute timeslot.
The DPD app, which ensures online shoppers need never miss a parcel delivery again now has over 3million users. In addition to storing delivery preferences for deliveries from DPD, the app hosts dynamic and ground-breaking features that enhance the entire delivery experience.
Precise, is another key innovation from DPD, yet another industry first allowing customers to select their exact one-hour delivery slot and the day of delivery.
Details of all these innovations will be available at the Delivery Conference.
