If you send multiple same-day parcels a day you could benefit from our multi-drop delivery option. To book using our multi-drop sheet (linked below) you must have at least 10 drops or pick-ups on the same day, in the same city. Any less per day and it’s best to use our web app to book your jobs separately.

How it works

Rather than 10 couriers picking up 10 packages, a single courier picks up all the packages in one go at an allotted time and we work out the most efficient route for him/her to deliver all 10. Which makes it a cheaper and more eco-friendly option than sending lots of single deliveries. And because our backend is smart, our multi-drops are still fully trackable and customisable. 

 

We introduced multi-drops because our clients were doing large volumes of deliveries per day and we figured there had to be a better, more efficient way to do this than single drops. So we crunched the numbers, retooled the backend and multi-drops were developed.

 

If you’re new to multi-drops here’s what they are and how to use them. (If you’re not new and want to cut to the chase, here‘s where to book)

 

Multi-drops or multi-pick ups

Multi-drops let you book a courier to go to one pick-up point to gather lots of packages to be dropped at multiple delivery points – hence ‘multi-drops’. 

Multi-pickups are basically this in reverse. So, when a courier collects parcels from multiple pick-up locations to be dropped at one delivery point. 

 

Multi-drops are for mid-to-high daily volumes

Multi-drops are best suited for businesses with high volumes (10+) or regular packages to send. The parcels are all carried in the one vehicle with maximum care, so multi-drops are a particularly good choice for fragile or delicate contents e.g. food subscription boxes, media kits, and PR boxes.

 

Multi-drops save you time and can cut the cost of a job by ½*

Booking a multi-drop saves you time and can drop your costs by up money than booking each job separately. You’re able to track all parcels under a single route, giving you total control and peace of mind. And, it’s much better for the environment as couriers are covering fewer miles on routes mapped out by our tech.

For extra savings, book separate multi-drops for different directions e.g. all drops south of the warehouse and all drops north. Might take a bit longer to sort but the savings will be worth it and we can help you to book them.

*This statistic is based on a well-grouped delivery route and is subject to vary.

Not all multi-drops are equal

Several courier companies offer multi-drops, but our tech optimises the most efficient single route to drop off every parcel with minimum mileage. And, the most appropriate vehicle for the job is chosen automatically by matching the parcel dimensions with the vehicle load. But you’re able to choose your preferred vehicle type at the time of booking.

 

Multi-drops are easy to use

Download the multi-drop sheet below and follow the instructions to ‘get a quote’ or ‘make a booking’.

Fill in as much information as you can; the more detail the better. Currently, we can only offer one delivery window for all packages on the same day, but we’re always working to improve our features. The ambition is to provide individual booking slots so your customers can choose exactly when they want to receive their parcel.
