Parcelforce launches bulk export service

Parcelforce Worldwide has launched Global Bulk Direct – an international service design to offer businesses low-cost tracked exports to overseas customers.

Companies can package multiple overseas deliveries into a single pallet, rather than sending each one separately, to achieve cost-savings

Each pallet is broken down on arrival, with individual parcels then despatched to their respective addresses. Delivery takes between two and eight days.

The cost savings are achieved by sending items by the pallet load instead of individually – these can be passed on to overseas customers, whether other businesses or consumers.

International director Simon Batt said: “The launch of our Global Bulk Direct product is the latest enhancement to our suite of international offerings, and will now enable us to meet a wider range of international customer delivery needs, further boosting our position as a trusted high-value carrier to UK businesses.”
