Up until now, Yodel has been a domestic UK delivery service but now, with a partnership with DG International, they have launched Yodel International, a streamlined global outbound service for UK retailers.
DG International is a Specialist freight forwarder. Launched in 2009, DG International is one of the UK’s fastest-growing logistics companies. It offers a full supply chain solution to support customers across all sectors, including ecommerce, retail, automotive, fashion and furniture.
The new Yodel International service has been developed to provide a fast and efficient home delivery solution to over 200 countries and territories for parcels up to 30kg. By partnering with DG International, Yodel is now offering retailers flexible overseas road and air shipping solutions and customs expertise.
The beauty of the Yodel International is that you can use the same tools (LINK, Metapack, and the Yodel Shipping Tool) to manage your international shipments through Yodel that you already use for your domestic deliveries. It’s a fully end to end tracked service using the Yodel JD tracking number and you’ll get a single invoice for your domestic and international deliveries.
There are two Yodel International services – ‘Small’ and ‘Large’ parcels. Both offer delivery in 3-5 days to Europe and 6-10 days to the rest of the world. It’s a 5-day a week delivery service, fully tracked and comes with a £25 liability for loss or damage. Small parcels are up to 2kg, 60cm length. Large parcels can be up to 30kg, 120cm long.

“Amid talks of the growth of UK online shopping slowing down, we’re seeing an increased retailer focus on cross border sales to continue their expansion. Global internet penetration is increasing and our new International service has been designed to enable retailers to open their online stores up to emerging markets that they possibly hadn’t considered before, as well as those already established.
The appetite is definitely there from overseas consumers and, with the current exchange rate, they are keen to buy from British retailers.”
– Duncan Lee, director of international business development, Yodel
“We are delighted to work in partnership with Yodel. With the spread of internet technology, the opportunities for retailers to enter new territories such as Israel and Saudi Arabia and offer customers a truly end to end service are really exciting. Cross-border distribution capability is a crucial component for UK e-commerce businesses, with consumers around the world expecting the same level of service as those based locally.”
– James Appleby, managing director, DG International
