Track DPD Parcel

DPD shipping services include parcels and goods tracking. The DPD tracking system can be found on its website and tracks products along their journey right up to the point they reach their final destination. The sender or recipient of the consignment can stay updated on the whereabouts of his or her goods at any time and as many times as they like using this method.

However, buyers should note that tracking via the DPD website only allows you to enter DPD tracking numbers. DPD cannot track a parcel's tracking number that has not been issued by DPD itself.

Also, suppose a tracking number of a particular parcel should vary as it changes hands between DPD and local courier services. In that case, the DPD tracking website could encounter difficulty keeping customers one hundred per cent up to date on the progress of their parcel.

Whether the parcel is being handled by China Post, FedEx, Royal Mail, or PostNL, the Ship24 tracking tool uses the DPD tracking number to automatically detect which courier a parcel is with. This automatic courier detection system makes it as simple as possible to use Ship24 and sets it apart from other tracking systems in the market.

DPD Tracking Number not working

Where does my DPD parcel pass through?

Although the company is based in France, with its headquarters located in Issy-les-Moulineaux, France, your DPD parcel can pass through any of its international depots.

It should be noted that DPD does not ship or process parcels at its French headquarters. When DPD receives a parcel it will move it along the fastest possible route to its final destination, and it does not need to go through any particular point before it is processed, but it is instead processed at one of its many processing countries around Europe and the world.

Therefore, if you are tracking a DPD parcel, you should not necessarily expect to see the headquarters address, or any DPD office address, as part of the parcel's journey.

To know where your parcel is on its journey at any time, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, Ship24 tracking offers to pinpoint accuracy on your DPD parcel's location. Ship24's tracking tool will also give you the latest tracking information, such as the status of the shipment.

This is important if your parcel is out for delivery or it is stuck at customs, buyers will want to have access to that information to proceed accordingly to resolve any issues.

If after the first attempt you were still not able to receive your DPD parcels, they will then be stored at the nearest Pickup parcelshop for you to collect.

A solution to track all of the above couriers, as well as hundreds more, is the Ship24 website. Ship24's universal tracking system is designed to take tracking number variables into account and can track a DPD, GeoPost of La Poste parcel along its journey no matter how many couriers it passes between or countries its passes through.

About DPD

Founded in France in 1999 as Dynamic Parcel Distribution (DPD), the company is currently the second-largest parcel delivery network across Europe. As well as covering its country of origin, France, and Europe, DPD also offers international shipment options to Asia, Africa, and other international destinations through its various partnerships with international courier companies and its internationally-orientated subsidiaries.

Today, DPD is part of the DPD Group, which owns, is in partnership with, and shares logistics operations with multiple different couriers, which has ensured the expansion of the company's delivery capability worldwide. DPD is owned by La Poste and is part of La Poste's international arm GeoPost. DPD's main competitors in Europe are TNT and DHL.

The idea behind the creation of DPD was to speed up the delivery process by processing parcels faster once they have reached a DPD depot station. Rather than the traditional method of keeping parcels within the container freight station, upon arrival, parcels are immediately dispatched. (Container Freight Station refers to a warehouse where cargo belongs to multiple export and importers. A CFS is typically owned by a shipping line and is responsible for customs check procedures.)

In this respect, the shipment no longer waits for approval at CFS, but it gets delivered faster to the owner. The parcel usually lands at the port terminal and is delivered to the customer on the same day or within 72 hours. The DPD services make the movement and delivery of the consignment more transparent. The frustrating moments of guessing the delivery date are over when you are using the DPD services.
