Express parcel service to destinations across the UK. 1 day from depot to UK mainland; 2-3 days to Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland and Offshore Isles*

*Please add one working day to your transit time if opting for a third-party collection service. For collections made in these postcodes, FDL will pick up from our depot same day.

How It Works...

With our FDL service, parcels are collected from our depot. You have the option of dropping your consignment off at one of our depots, using one of our collection services, or choosing one of hundreds of DPD or UPS drop-off locations nationwide.

Please add 1 working day to your estimated transit time if booking either an optional collection or an alternative drop-off option, to allow for overnight delivery to our depot. For some postcodes in London, the East Midlands and North West England, we are able to collect ourselves and ship from the depot same day.

Once your shipment has been delivered to our depot, we will process it and forward your parcel to its final destination via FDL.

Please refer to our documentation page for labelling instructions for each collection/drop-off option.

If you are not able to print any of your documents, please get in touch and we will be happy to post hard copies to you.


You can track your parcel by entering your TP- order reference number into our tracking tool.

Size and Weight Restrictions
  • Max weight: 25kg
  • Max length: 120cm

Volumetric Weight

Your shipment will be charged by either actual weight or volumetric weight – whichever is greater.

Volumetric weight is a value derived from the size rather than the weight of your parcel and may apply if your parcel is particularly large and contains relatively light items.

For this service, we calculate volumetric weight by multiplying the three dimensions of your parcel together and dividing by 6000.

For example:

Actual Weight Dimensions Divisor Volumetric Weight Chargeable Weight
10kg 50 x 30 x 20cm 6000 5kg 10kg
10kg 50 x 60 x 40cm 6000 20kg 20kg

Category Description Fee
Oversized If your parcel measures more than 120cm in length. £20
Overweight If your parcel weighs more than 25kg. £30
Return to Sender / Undeliverable If FDL is unable to deliver your parcel. £2.50 + freight rate / cost of carriage

Please note that surcharges on domestic (UK) deliveries are subject to VAT.
