Do DPD Deliver on Saturdays or Bank Holidays?

DPD don’t deliver parcels on weekends or bank holidays. But you can drop off your parcel on the weekend, and it will be picked up on the next working day!


What time does DPD deliver to?

DPD will usually deliver parcels 8am-6pm from Monday to Friday. If you leave your parcel at a DPD drop off point before 12 noon, then there is a much higher chance that your parcel will arrive the next working day.

If you’re expecting a parcel and you want to know when it’s on its way, just use your tracking number on our DPD tracking page.

If you are wanting to intercept a DPD parcel, see our guide on how to stop a parcel being delivered.


What happens if you miss your DPD delivery?

If you miss your delivery, your DPD driver will leave a ‘sorry we missed you’ card. You can choose to arrange another delivery date, choose a safe place for them to leave your parcel or send your DPD parcel to a neighbour or your closest DPD drop shop. You’re spoilt for choice!
