Next day tracked service from our depot for parcels up to 25kg and pallets.


How It Works...

With our DX service, parcels are shipped 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 DX.

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.

Free Collections

We are able to offer free collections in some areas of London, the East Midlands and North West England, in proximity to our depots.


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

Size and Weight Restrictions
  • Maximum parcel weight: 25kg (actual or volumetric - see Volumetric Weight below)
  • Max length: 2m
  • Max no. of pieces: 10

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 5000.

For example:
