I ship a lot of big parcels outside of the UK. Which carrier should I pick?

When you’re looking for a carrier that specialises in shipping large parcels outside of the UK, then you’re looking for FedEx. They even support electronic trade for a large number of countries.
Before shipping internationally, please don’t forget to check the terms and conditions of the carrier you are choosing.

I want a carrier with standard insurance. Which one should I choose?

If you want to ship your parcel with a carrier that includes insurance in the label price, you can choose DPD. DPD insures every parcel up to £100. Check out our Help Centre article before shipping with DPD, as some products are excluded from insurance.

Another carrier that provides standard insurance is UPS. When you ship your parcels with UPS, they are insured up to £60.

Additionally, you can always add Sendcloud insurance with the carrier of your choice. We have partnered with XCover to provide simple, stress-free protection for your shipment. More information regarding this insurance can be found in the following article.

What are the carriers doing, to make the shipping more sustainable?

More and more carriers are focusing on becoming more sustainable. Evri C2C offers a locker-to-home service, making the first mile more sustainable. FedEx uses bikes or electric vans in metropolitan areas, while Royal Mail provides “green” last-mile solutions through drop-off points, for example.
