The courier in this example is the ‘company’ or us, ipostparcels. 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.

How does a Courier Service work?

Our courier service isn’t just a usual, run of the mill delivery service. At ipostparcels, we’re part of DHL Parcel UK – making us 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.
