Transit times: how long will my parcel take to arrive?

Whether you're sending a parcel, a document or freight, the time it will take for your shipment to arrive at its designated destination will be of great importance to you. Even for shipments that are not vitally time-sensitive, it's important to have an estimated delivery date, so that you can plan ahead. Courier services can be hesitant to guarantee exact delivery times, but at Transglobal Express, we try to give you as much information as possible about transit times to make your shipping experience as pleasant and stress free as we can. 

Choosing Transglobal Express for your parcel delivery service affords you a great amount of flexibility: not only do we offer services from all of the biggest global couriers UPS, FedEx, DHL and TNT, we also offer multiple service options from each of these brands, depending on the time sensitivity of your shipment and your personal budget. 

For time sensitive shipments, an express service is recommended. With UPS Express Saver or DHL Express Worldwide, you can expect next business day delivery from the UK to most European countries and transit times as little as 2 days to many locations in the USA. Express delivery to Australia can be as little as 3 days, and the same goes for many Asian countries.

If your shipment is less time-sensitive, for intra-European deliveries, you can opt for a more economical road-based service. Depending on your chosen destination, deliveries to European countries will take 1-5 business days with DHL Economy Select. For worldwide deliveries, TG International Economy is a great option. With service, your parcels are delivered through the FedEx network and could be anywhere in the world within a week. Services such as these are less expensive and are a great option if you are working to a tighter budget. 

If you know your full collection and delivery address, you can calculate a more accurate transit time estimate via the tools available on our website:
