Online comparison website for courier services
Having established partnerships and high volume savings with leading courier firms DHL, TNT and UPS, MyParcelDelivery.com's slogan is 'compare, send & save'. The firm calculates the best price for customers based on factors such as size, weight and distance, and manages the whole transaction and tracking process. In a nutshell, MyParcelDelivery.com has all its bases covered, providing a single destination for managing parcel delivery, with savings of up to 84%. Founders David Grimes and Paul Haydock graduated from Cambridge together in 2006 to start corporate merchandising company Xenon-54, where endless trips to the Post Office sparked the concept for MyParcelDelivery.com. The site was built in just four months and launched in June 2010, delivering 2,000 parcels within two months of trading. First year turnover could hit £2m with 33% gross profit on a cash generative model that sees customers pay for deliveries up front and couriers invoice 30 days later. It recently linked up with eBay to allow sellers to sync their accounts and automatically generate best-price delivery charges.
