We are delighted to announce that Shiptheory now offers integration with DX Express Services: DX Courier and DX Secure, as well as two DX Freight Services: DX 1-Man and DX 2-Man.
DX (Group) plc is a British mail, courier, and logistics company that provides a wide range of delivery services across the UK and Ireland. The company was founded in 1975, and it is based in Berkshire, with offices in Ditton Park (head office), Bristol, Northampton, Warrington, Willenhall, and Dublin. With a staff of more than 3,000 employees, DX’s network is covering the majority of UK and Ireland business and residential addresses. The company’s clientele ranges from companies like Argos, Timpsons, Marks & Spencer, Specsavers, and William Hill, to the UK Government.
The DX Group operates through two main divisions, DX Express and DX Freight. It also runs a private business-to-business delivery network, DX Exchange, that is mainly focusing on the legal, financial, and public sectors. DX Exchange is serving the majority of legal firms within the UK.
DX Express focusses on next-day or scheduled courier deliveries, and also offers secure services for the delivery of items of value. DX provides tracked, next-day delivery including premium morning and Saturday options and their B2B Customer Service teams are situated locally.
DX Freight provides next-day or scheduled delivery services for parcels and irregular dimension or weight items.
The 1-Man is a one-person, business-to-business service, focusing on next-working day delivery of any size or shape items up to 50kg.
The 2-Man home delivery service will deliver larger and heavier packaged goods into the customer’s destination of choice. The service provides up to 8 weeks of delivery dates along with an anticipated 3-hour delivery time slot on delivery day. Additionally, the service offers light assembly, wet installation of electrical appliances, as well as removal and disposal of old electrical items in accordance with the WEEE directive.
There are a number of items that the company won’t be able to transport. Find a list of prohibited goods here.
Each of these above services requires separate commercial agreement with DX and, as such, credentials for each cannot be interchanged. For example, DX 1-Man account details cannot be used to book DX 2-Man shipments via Shiptheory.
Connect your DX account with Shiptheory and ship faster and smarter, making it easy for your Magento, Etsy, Squarespace, or Shopify online stores, to automate their shipping process entirely. Create shipping rules based on the weight, value, destination, and contents of your orders, and Shiptheory will generate labels for your DX deliveries instantly.
