All of our DPD services are Drop Off, so once you have booked you will need to drop off your package at any of the 2,500 + DPD Pickup shops across the UK. Many of our customers book a collection from another address in the UK, such as if they have purchased something from eBay and are sorting their own courier service and choose to use DPD as it allows the sender to drop off the package at a time that suits them.
You can choose to book DPD Express for those items that require expedited shipping, or you can choose the cheaper DPD Classic services that are slightly more cost effective but still come with full tracking and reasonable standard transit times.

DPD shipping times will vary depending on where you are shipping to. The DPD Drop Off at Store service available in Europe for packages to be shipped to the UK will see that your package is shipped in just 3 working days.
DPD has a great delivery network into Europe so if you are using a DPD Courier Service from the UK, you can expect a package to be delivered in 2-3 days using Air Express services or 3-5 days using DPD Air Classic. DPD Classic is a road service so can offer better value than Air but add a day or two to the transit time. If saving on the cost of sending a package is more important than transit time - DPD Classic would be a great choice.
When from the UK shipping overseas to long-haul destinations, transit times can take a bit longer to popular locations in North America, Asia, and Australia. DPD Air Express will still ship your items in 3-5 days, whereas Classic services can take up to 8 days to some locations.
