The online parcel delivery comparison website My Parcel Delivery has launched a new service that bolsters security for parcel senders including pre-labelled, tamper-proof bags in which to transport packaged items.
The “DX Standard” two-day service for parcels up to 10kg (measuring 69cmx65cmx5cm) costs £7.69. The collection driver arrives with strengthened poly bags which add another level of security to correctly- packaged parcels. The destination address label is already printed and affixed to the bag, removing the need for the sender to print labels.
Both the DX Standard and DX Premium delivery services include photographic and GPS evidence of delivery, while the Premium service also includes free email and SMS confirmation.
David Grimes, My Parcel Delivery managing director, said: “The new DX courier option combines a very competitive price for two-day delivery with the highest standards of customer service: the sender has no need to spend time printing and attaching labels or to worry about the safety and security of their parcel between collection and delivery.
“We have seen the need for services like this that are both affordable and reassure senders that their parcels are in good hands.”
At first glance the size restrictions will mean this service has limited appeal to ecommerce sellers and it is quite expensive. But for high value items and peace of mind there may be sellers who find this new service appealing.
