Delivery Options

Putting technology at our customers fingertips 

Your customers get full visibilty of their parcels from order through to delivery with our UK and international delivery notifications and interactive options.


Our UK delivery options allows us to send emails or texts to your customers to let them know when their parcel will arrive including the drivers name and a one-hour delivery window. The notification will include what we’ve done with their parcel if they weren’t at home when we tried to deliver. If the delivery arrangements aren’t convenient, they can use our interactive options to tell us to deliver on a different day or to a different address. If we can’t deliver as planned, we will let customers know why there is a delay, and whether to expect their parcel later today or tomorrow.

Inflight Interactive Options Available;
