Although we work hard to ensure our services operate as usual, from time to time some couriers experience delays due to unprecedented technical issues. See below for the latest service updates.
All Parcelforce services are temporarily unavailable due to the courier experiencing technical issues. We will update anyone affected by delays as soon as we have more information.
If you already booked a parcel with Parcelforce, we have emailed you to rebook your delivery. If your parcel is already in transit, it will be delivered by Parcelforce as planned but parcel tracking may be limited.
If you’ve not yet booked a delivery with Parcelforce, we recommend UPS, FedEx or DPD for similar services. Or get a quote to browse our full range of alternative courier services.

Customs charges – updated 1st July 2021
All parcels sent outside the UK are subject to customs charges (duties and taxes).
Customs duty is calculated based on the value of the item you're sending, the origin, and the type of goods being sent - different items have different duty percentage rates. During the booking process, you will need to complete a commercial invoice. It is your responsibility to make sure tariff codes are correct.
At Parcel2Go we provide our customers with a number of options to pay customs fees when sending to EU countries. Businesses can pay at point of sale through the Import-One-Stop-Shop scheme (IOSS), all senders can pay before shipping the goods using our Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) option, or send Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) where the parcel recipient will be required to pay any charges before their goods are released by customs.
We do advise that paying taxes and duties before your parcel is sent will significantly reduce delays and increase efficient customs clearance. Click here to find more info on EU VAT changes and our top tips.
