For a Collection Request made in a country subject to customs, the invoices must appear on the letterhead of the sending customer, who must affix them to the parcel.

Placing an order

Your request must be made to us via the Collection Request form at your DPD depot, the day before by 2pm at the latest (and ideally several days in advance, if possible).

Your DPD depot will then give you your parcel number.

Before requesting a collection, make sure that the parcels are ready for collection and inform the sender of the driver's arrival.
