How long does DPD take to deliver?
DPD shipping times will vary depending on where you are shipping from and to. The DPD Drop Off at Store service available in Europe for packages to be shipped to the UK will see that your package is shipped in just 3 working days.
DPD has a great delivery network into Europe so if you are using a DPD Courier Service from the UK, you can expect a package to be delivered in 2-3 days using Air Express services or 3-5 days using DPD Air Classic. DPD Classic is a road service so can offer better value than Air, but add a day or two to the transit time. If saving on the cost of sending a package is more important than transit time - DPD Classic is a great choice.
When shipping from the UK to long-haul destinations, transit times can take a bit longer to popular locations like North America, Asia, and Australia. DPD Air Express will still ship your items in 3-5 days, whereas Classic services can take up to 8 days to some locations.
