Parcelforce - information about carrier

Parcelforce Worldwide is a courier and logistics service in the United Kingdom. Parcelforce Worldwide is a trading name of Royal Mail Group Ltd. and is organized within the UK Parcels, International and Letters department of the group. The company delivers to locations worldwide, using a worldwide partner network.

Its European delivery partner, General Logistics Systems (GLS), is likewise a subsidiary of Royal Mail and delivers more than one million parcels a day throughout 34 nations in Europe. Parcelforce Worldwide is a direct competitor of other worldwide delivery brands, such as DHL, DX Group, FedEx and UPS.

Parcelforce Limited runs a "center and spoke" collection and delivery system with 2 hubs based at Coventry, surrounding to the airport. One hub is for parcels for the United Kingdom, and the other for international parcels. The center of the United Kingdom, among the nation's largest buildings, is an extremely automated tracking and arranging center covering 24,000 square meters (5.9 acres) and can manage approximately 58,500 parcels an hour.

The Parcel Post service of Royal Mail was begun in 1883, though parcel services run by the train business, later on Red Star Parcels and British Road Services, were also greatly used for many years. Royal Mail was separated into 3 divisions in 1986 and in August 1990, Royal Mail Parcels was rebranded as Parcelforce.

In July 1992, the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, Michael Heseltine, proposed privatization of the Parcelforce business. He argued that the business offered the majority of its services to services instead of individuals which the competitive market it ran in implied there was no need for it to remain an openly owned business.

In March 2002, the universal parcel service was transferred to Royal Mail leaving Parcelforce to focus on time guaranteed, next day and two days reveal shipment.

In January 2007, Parcelforce Worldwide ended up being the first express provider in the United Kingdom to give its consumers the choice to balance out the carbon emissions associated with the delivery of their parcels. The company permitted consumers to contribute 5p for shipment for the United Kingdom or 10p for international shipment to The Woodland Trust. Parcelforce would then match the contribution.

In October 2012, Royal Mail revealed an investment of ₤ 75 million in Parcelforce Worldwide planned over four years, which will include the opening of brand-new processing centers in Chorley, Lancashire and depots in Basingstoke, Hampshire and Bodmin, Cornwall.

Parcelforce Worldwide operates its collection and delivery services through a network of 54 "regional" depots. These have actually been tactically located around the United Kingdom from Inverness in the north of Scotland to Plymouth in the southwest of England. There are 2 depots in Wales, one central depot in Northern Ireland (serving Belfast) and 2 smaller satellite depots.

The biggest posters likewise have the alternative of a direct feed collection. In other words, instead of a regional depot collecting parcels for arranging, a trailer is left on site, filled up throughout the course of the working day and after that taken directly to Coventry for processing.
