Based in Iver, the company has operational hubs in Northampton, Nuneaton, Warrington, Willenhall and Dublin. Founded in 1975, the company has been private since 2006.

Today, the DX Group includes DX Network Services Limited, DX Secure and DX Freight.

The company is primarily used by public and private sector organisations for next day delivery of mail, parcels and two-man deliveries. Many of the company’s customers include online and high street retailers, as well as law firms, accountancy firms and banks. It is also a provider for the UK government and foreign embassies who require shipping of identity documents and visas. DX also provides customer-driven solutions for time sensitive, mission critical, two-man and high value deliveries with a variety of mail, courier and freight options.

According to DX, the company delivers more than 170 million items every year.

Approximately 5.5 million identity documents alone are transported through the DX network each year. The company operates 350 nightly truck routes and from more than 50 locations, including over 20 depots across the UK and Ireland.

For international mail, DX offers worldwide air mail. Delivery times range from three to five days within Europe and between seven and ten days for destinations in the rest of the world.

    just had a very heavy package delivered by this firm, the driver pulled up, with no second person there he shouted would I help him, me being 76 years of age and disabled fortunately I had a parcel truck so we managed to get this to my front door, as this was as far as he needed to go he promptly dumped the parcel and moved off leaving me to now manage on my own. great thanks to me for my truck, useless ungrateful person

  7. Sanjay Revanna

    Frustrating experience.
    Tracking number: 1374387559.

    I have waited all day for my parcel which never arrived. When I tracked online, you claim you tried to deliver and left a calling card.
    I have been home all day and there was no calling card.
    I want an explanation on what happened, I wasted an entire day waiting for the delivery!

  8. John Hill

    I have a delivery out today which has not arrived. Tracking number is L2580479. I have waited in all day as instructed. This is not satisfactory as I have urgent business to attend to tomorrow and Friday and cannot guarantee I will be here to accept the delivery. Please provide a one hour slot for the delivery of my item. If you cannot do this I shall contact the sender and cancel the order.
    This is not the first time I have been let down by DX

  9. Mrs l johnson

    I have stayed in all day,taken a day off work expecting my delivery of a by fold door between 8am and 18.00 on 29/11/16.it has not been delivered I am not happy.

  10. Liquan Liu

    I have sent your company many messages online today and nobody called back to me!!!
    My passport was delivered to my flat today but when I track it online it says it’s been unsuccessful because the delivering man could not get into the property and not able to leave a calling card.
    But what annoyed me is that he could have contacted me via my mobile phone.Otherwise why do you guys need my number when I provided it at the TLS office????
    You are not trying to contact me before returning it
    Now I want to change my address.
    And the redelivery system just won’t work and saying tracking number and original postcode do not match.
    But I can still track the status of my item.That’s really!!!really weird!!!
    Reply to me ASAP or I will be real mad at you okay?

  11. Mr. Brian Pratt

    My given delivery day was for Monday 5th September. I stayed in all day ready to receive my delivery which did not arrive. I am unable to be at home on the morning of the 6th September, so please leave my delivery in my garage which will be left unlocked. My paper work from Wicks is clear that the agreed delivery date was for the 5th Sept. so what had gone wrong, I have wasted one whole day and to say the least not to pleased.

  12. J beecham

    I have waited in all day for my delivery ,apparently you have the only delivery driver who can not find this address disputed the roadside singh ? Tracking no. 10777662 post code ip221qg .ineed this today hence I am extremely annoyed I have a carpenter waiting for it.

  13. peter brown

    it is now 1255 waiting for my 0900-1300 delivery.
    I am still waiting for the delivery.
    Never mind the ‘corporate speak’ rubbish on your web site.
    You fail to live up to it.
    the company is difficult to contact, the only human voice ( The church clock has just struck 1300) I heard switched me back to the web site with unseemly haste
    Your texting is useless and the so called tracking is pathetic and uninformative.
    This inability to deliver at the customers convinence in this case, has caused are visitors to cancel a visit and ruin our day.

  14. Ying Cao

    I have not received my parcel for one week. The status online of parcel is you cannot find my address. But I am not able to make redelivery and nobody contacts me. I am lost.

    Outstanding service and I highly commend him for both his initative, patience and customer care.
    Thank you DX team and Charlie in getting my passport to me!

  23. Beth Feingold

    This system is chronic. I have tried repeatedly to track my item but the system doesn’t work. When I phone through all I get is automated service trying to arrange another day delivery. The phone calls to customer services cost 7p a min and was confusing and lengthy. It started redirecting me to another service so I had to hang up.

  24. Anne Weight

    my item was not delivered, no card was left and no phone call made. I was in for most of both days (March 31st and April 1st)
    I’m disabled and have to go to the health centre at different times. I have tried to call you. I will cancel the item as I’m not happy with your ‘delivery service’

  25. Mr D Hands

    I have waited in all day for my redelivered package with no luck. now I don’t know what to do. which

    my address is 404 thurcaston road Leicester le4 2rd

  30. M.Roberts

    I have been on the phone for over 20 mins and am not happy…I do not like paying 7p per minute to a company that will not answer its phone just to make money. Ring me back please…01

    1. admin Post author

      We have no hotline and cannot give any support. The service we offer is free online tracking. Everything else is covered by the shipping companies directly

  31. M.Roberts

    What a scam it is to make us pay 7p per minute and leave us waiting for many minutes, just because they can. There is no need to pinch every penny from people when they get paid to deliver items. GET A REGULAR BUSINESS LINE WITHOUT PAY PER MINUTE ON IT….LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD.

  32. Brian Sunderland

    DX delivered our mail packet whilst we were on holiday, we arranged a redelivery and received an email confirmation that the mail would be delivered on Thursday 19 November between 9.0 am and 5.0 pm..I have stayed in all day and received nothing neither a call or email to inform me what is going on…I can’t phone and speak to anyone, basically this service is rubbish and I still have no idea if this important delivery will ever arrive.

  33. Natasha Barrett

    Very professional and friendly, amended my delivery time right away. Very happy thank you
