Flexible international courier service
We have developed a highly effective International routing system and range of service partners to ensure that the most cost and time-efficient methods are selected to send all client consignments.
The operations team and systems perform the following as standard:
Ensure that the courier arrives on time. If our automatic estimated time of arrival system shows that based on prevailing traffic conditions the collection is likely to be later, or earlier than agreed we will send an email or SMS to the designated stakeholder with a revised eta.
Should your consignment not be ready at the agreed collection time, we will attempt to allocate an additional vehicle from a fleet of over 3,000 to collect the parcel and drive directly to the airport to ensure the delivery arrives at the time you have requested.

An international courier service is one that enables you to send an item to another country. Different suppliers will offer different types of international delivery services, including timed services. The time it takes to deliver the item will, however, depend on the supplier and the number of routes they have to into that country; however, this information will be available when placing your booking. The price you will be charged for booking an international delivery will depend on the service type you book and the size and weight of the item.
Late parcel collection times, also known as cut off times, refers to the time that a courier will arrive to collect your parcel for international or Next Day delivery. A customer typically prefers cut off times towards the end of the day as allows more time for the item to be ready. Should the item not be ready when the courier arrives it would not be collected and would miss the flight on which it was being delivered. The reason for this is that the international or next day courier has a set route and cannot wait at a collection location otherwise they will not be able to collect all the parcel on their route it time.
However, if the courier supply you use for international deliveries also has a national fleet of same-day couriers, missing a cut off time will not automatically mean your parcel will not arrive at its destination on time.
Depending on traffic conditional and availability TVS SCS would have the ability to send a same-day courier to collect the item and take it directly to the airport. Choosing a courier supplier that offers both same days, next day and international bookings can be a safeguard against missing International deliveries.
A European direct driver courier service is often the quickest option when you need a parcel or package delivered anywhere in Europe quickly and safely.
Unlike an International service when the delivery depending on set flight times, the direct drive courier will collect the parcel and drive directly to the destination, only stopping in compliance with driver hour regulation.
Unlike an international delivery with a European direct drive service, the same courier that collects your parcel will also deliver it, this limits the potential points of failure within the delivery process, offering a more reliable service.
A European direct drive service will, however, be more expensive than international deliveries; however, they remain a valuable option when the parcel has to be at its destination on time.
