Why Use Parcel Connect?

One shipping solution, so many benefits

A Better Way to Ship Cross-Border

Choose Parcel Connect for your Shipping and Returns and take the stress out of European e-commerce.

Unmatched Reliability And Service

With Parcel Connect, you’ll benefit from industry-leading levels of service and reliability across 28 countries. Our own European network handles all transits, and first and last mile in many countries. In others, we team with expert domestic carriers with the same exacting standards as our own – and we oversee the whole process. DHL Customer Operations manage the day-to-day logistics with your people, and our Customer Service team works directly with your own care team to resolve any issues – ensuring you, and your customers, get the best possible service.

A Cost-Efficient Solution That Expands With You

To save you time and costs, regular or ad hoc shipments can be collected from your premises in origin or destination countries – or you can ‘inject’ them into our network at any depot or hub on the transit route. As your e-commerce business grows, we can customize shipping solutions to accommodate it. We can also provide reporting, giving you an overview of your trade lanes, and work with you on new markets. No matter how complex your business becomes, your logistics will feel simple.

Give Your Customers Control

Cut down on costly queries with last mile services tailored to your customers. Parcel Connect lets recipients track their shipments in real time and sends pre-delivery notifications, so they can choose doorstep, alternative location, safe place, neighbor, re-routing, or locker/service point drop-offs*. They’ll also have day and delivery time options and local preferences like Cash On Delivery*. It’s all part of a service designed to deliver ultimate flexibility.

Simple, Stress-Free Returns

Returns and undeliverable items become much simpler with Parcel Connect. A single, standard returns label and proof of handover notification mean your customer can drop off their package at one of our 100,000 lockers and service points. We’ll collect and return it to you – or collate it to hold at your warehouse, if you prefer. Tracking returns and undeliverable goods works the same as outbound shipments, so you always know what’s happening with your stock.
