Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I send my parcels with Barcode Logistics ?
Barcode Logistics’s has contracts with mainstream carriers which allows for low-in-industry unit costs. In other words, you will save money sending your parcels with us. Not only will we reduce the rates you are currently paying by going direct to the delivery provider (e.g. DHL, DPD, Hermes, Parcelforce, UK Mail, Yodel), we also provide free software to integrate with your current system, whether you are using an eCommerce platform or downloading directly from your Amazon or eBay store.
Who collects the parcels from my business / house ?
Barcode Logistics run our own collection vehicles throughout the North West but If you are in an area as yet not covered by our own vehicles, you can still send your parcels using our discounted rates and we organise regular or ad-hoc collections directly with the carrier. So long as you are sending out a sufficient amount of parcels (usually averaging 20 per day) our sales team will be happy to discuss your needs and quote for your business.
Can I drop parcels off at the Barcode Logistics office ?
Yes, we’re more than happy to accept parcels being dropped off at our office for account holders or one off customers wanting to pay as you go. We accept cash payments and have on site credit card facilities.
How do I create the shipping labels for my parcels ?
If you are a higher-volume user (usually averaging over 20 parcels per day) you will be provided with a label printer and free labels. You may however ship on a lower volume, ad-hoc basis, using our website and print to any media. Some of our clients who bring their parcels to us will put the shipments on the website and we print the labels on receipt of their parcels. We also offer a hand written paper manifest for regular shippers who don’t have internet access or just want to do things the old fashioned way. This information is then processed in the office and shipping labels created by our admin team.
