Transglobal Express is excited to announce improved prices and over a hundred new destinations for its popular DHL Express Import service. Customers are now able to book parcel delivery services from over 200 countries and destinations worldwide into the UK, taking advantage of DHL’s word-renowned network for significantly reduced prices.
Transglobal already offers both economy and express import service through TNT Express and has provided imports from Europe via DHL since its online booking service was integrated with carriers’ back-end systems in 2009.
Last year, a new DHL Worldwide import was trialled, offering discounted import services from some of Transglobal’s most popular destinations including USA, China and Hong Kong. Uptake of the service was so great that it is now being rolled out to cover almost every nation worldwide.
The new service offers impressive transit times as little as 1 day from the Hong Kong to the UK, 2 days from many USA locations, and 4 days from Australia. Both personal and business customers can import parcels of up to 70kg in weight or up to 1000kg for palletised shipments. The service is also fully trackable using the latest technology, offering reassurance and visibility to the UK consignee.
Managing Director Lawson Archer commented, “While our range of parcel delivery services within the UK, and from the UK to almost any global destination, are very popular, we know there is also a huge demand for discounted import services in addition to export options. We’re unique in the parcel delivery reseller market in that we offer a complete range of both import and export and we’re committing to developing both areas in line with the needs of our customers.”
Since the company started trading over 20 years ago as a sea and air freight forwarder, Transglobal’s remit has always been international. It is hoped that this new service will assist personal shippers as well as SMEs looking to increase their international business profile.
