Dpd delivery at it's finest

More than seven thousand people (Almost 7,700, to be more exact) took part in the survey on Martin Lewis’ site to find the best (and worst) parcel delivery firms in the country. Conducted just after the Christmas and January Sales peak, the survey asked participants to rate the shipping performance of all major British delivery companies, based on their own experiences during the whole of 2018.

How did the others fare?

Royal Mail, which is DPD’s major competitor finished third, with 54%. We should also mention other “great” scores for the other major carriers, such as the 41% got by Parcelforce and, of course, UPS, with 40%, or Hermes, who managed to score a total of 31%.

Old habits die hard – DPD’s CEO says it all

Shipping software with DPD integrationDwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO, is, of course, extremely proud of the result: “This is becoming a habit, and it isn’t one that we want to give up! While it is the sixth time we’ve topped this poll, we never take anything for granted. We will enjoy this. When nearly 8,000 customers vote, you have to take it seriously. But the nature of this industry is that you have to perform to the highest possible standards every single day of the year, no matter what the roads or the weather throw at you. The whole team deserves massive credit and it is great for everyone involved in the operation to know that their efforts are appreciated by the parcel recipients“.
