It may have been a year of ups and downs, but it has definitely been a busy one here at Interparcel!
For individuals and eCommerce businesses, this has been a time of adaption and growth. We've listened to feedback and worked hard to introduce new business tools, integrations and services to broaden our wide choice of carriers and delivery services within the UK and internationally.
Let's take a look at our 2021 highlights…
Hermes Postable is a service designed for smaller, non-valuable parcel items that fit through the letterbox, prices start from only £1.75 (ex. VAT). There are also 4,600 ParcelShops and lockers spread around the UK to use for Drop Off services.
We also welcomed Yodel to our team of excellent parcel carriers so our customers can benefit from another affordable Drop Off service. Yodel have thousands of stores located across the country, open 7 days a week, providing a convenient delivery service that works around your schedule.
Interparcel integrations work by creating a direct link between your online store with the Interparcel Shipping Manager. We are constantly adding new integrations to our portfolio and here are our latest ones:
Our Amazon integration will import any orders from your Amazon account into your Interparcel Shipping Manager account, where you can then choose your preferred courier services and send your order at some of the best prices around.
Not On The High Street
We are always adding new integrations to our portfolio so if we are missing any please email email@example.com to request.
In August, we launched a brand new Interparcel video. Our video takes you through each stage of the Interparcel shipping process and features our office pooches for an added cute factor!
Changes to international deliveries
Since the UK left the EU, Brexit and VAT changes have caused disturbances in the courier industry. We understand that filling out a Customs form can be daunting, but it doesn't need to be!

We joined Instagram and LinkedIn
Back in April, Interparcel joined the Instagram and LinkedIn community! It has been great to share our latest news, offers and discounts to new and existing customers on both these platforms.
We run our competitions throughout the year and in 2021 our lucky winners won some fabulous prizes. We'd love for you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn, so you don't miss out on the chance to win future competitions.
We recommend you also join our mailing list so our latest news, offers and competitions will arrive in your mailbox- without you having to lift a finger!
We expanded our 'paw'cel team!
It's well known that we are big advocates of pets in the workplace. Last year, we welcomed new pups Alfie and Albie to the office dog squad!
Albie, the Cocker Spaniel, loves to run around the office, playing with his fellow furry friends and having well-deserved cuddles with everyone he meets.
Alfie is Charlie the Shih Tzu's new younger pal, whose cheeky personality and love for toys makes everyone in the office smile - let's hope more dogs join the team this year!
Finally, a big thank you to all our customers!
Thank you for choosing us to find you the best shipping rates for parcel delivery in the UK and to destinations worldwide. Our parcel experts are on hand seven days a week via telephone, live chat, or email to assist with any booking or queries.
We hope that this year brings more exciting opportunities and you continue to send your parcels through us.
Now that's a wrap! Bring on 2022!
