I use interparcel for all my mail order stuff. They have the best prices I can find and dont have surcharge for Highlands collection.

I know they dont like hazardous stuff though. I have tried most of the above and couldnt get cheaper prices without big volume.

DHL offered a pretty competitiive price with more volume.


Codders, Id defo be interested when you start doing parcels. Will you be doing highlands and islands?

Codprawn, you've finally gone public

Best of luck with the new business.

Now, how much did you pay Ribshop to start this thread just a few days before you go live?

Have used Woody's and DR MacLeod. Both very competitive. Think they both have hubs in Inverness, so can collect from other carriers. Have transported engines on pallets and zodiacs in bags.

Any plans to add rest of the world? If you add Turkey, China, UAE, Australia, US/Canada we might be able to put business your way from time to time. Our EU shipments tend to be parcels rather than pallets. Will your pallets be trackable?

Yes we want it to global. Initially it's UK outbound only but eventually we want it to be that you can send a pallet from Albania to Gambia if you wish!!!

We aim to have good enough prices that it just isn't worth the hassle of phoning around for quotes and waiting days to see if they get back to you.

Yes pallets are trackable.

Parcels are a must have but still doing the deals at the moment.

Also will be doing containers and consolidation eventually but Rome wasn't built in a day!!!
