At DPD Local Online, we’ve made it our business to make parcel tracking - UK and international - as straightforward as possible for our customers.
What is parcel delivery tracking?
Online parcel tracking is a really useful tool for anybody looking to send a parcel to any UK or global destination; after all, if it’s valuable, urgent or time specific, you’ll be keen to know its whereabouts… and quite rightly so!
How do I track my package?
All you need is the unique parcel ID or reference number which will be on your confirmation email. Simply type this number into the relevant page and click ‘track my parcel’ and you’ll be able to see if it has been dispatched, in transit or delivered. Being able to track your package at various points along its journey is a huge benefit to using a courier service over standard postal services that often don’t offer this. The ones that do offer this service are often not as detailed and your parcel can have the same status for days in a row, leaving you to worry about where it is and whether it has been lost. We offer parcel delivery tracking on all of our services.
How do I track my shipment using international tracking?
International parcel delivery is where parcel tracking really comes into its own. As there can be many stages and many different forms of transport - from van to aircraft - it can take a few days for your item to reach its destination. Having comprehensive international tracking at your fingertips gives you peace of mind, and lets you see exactly what stage of the delivery process your item is. This can be especially valuable if your parcel happens to be on its way to the other the other side of the world!
Want to double check a postcode before sending?
Another great tool is our postcode finder, which ensures that you are using the correct postcode and therefore that your parcel can be delivered to its destination as quickly as possible, so if you’re not sure on the exact postcode, it’s worth checking or there is a risk that your parcel may be delayed. All you need to do is enter the name of the street and the number of the house or business and we’ll tell you what the postcode is, it couldn’t be simpler!
