About DPD Ireland


DPD Ireland is one of the leading providers of courier delivery services in the world. With over 36 years of experience, DPD Ireland has become a trusted partner for ecommerce companies and individuals who rely on their reliable and efficient logistical and delivery services. DPD Ireland offers many options to suit all customer needs, ensuring packages can be delivered quickly and securely. 

It was established as Interlink Ireland in 1986, with headquarters in Athlone, Westmeath, Ireland. It was acquired in 2000 by Geopost S.A.,  the parcels division of La Poste. This carrier’s name changed to DPD Ireland when in 2008, La Poste merged all of its parcel divisions under the single name, DPD. Since then, all DPD’s subsidiaries, including DPD Ireland, have improved logistical operations for ecommerce companies and other store owners across Europe and the world.

DPD has been a pioneer in adopting logistics technology to further the growth and efficiency of the shipping industry. With the introduction of a new cross belt sorter, its sorting capacity has increased from 7000 packages in an hour to over 20,000. 

DPD Ireland’s domestic services include next-day courier delivery (for Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland), 34 nationwide collection points, direct hand-to-hand delivery, refunds if packages arrive late, and more. In addition, DPD Ireland’s Premium shipping services also offer customers online tracking tools to help them keep tabs on their deliveries around the clock. It also allows customers to pay via cheque on successful delivery under its COD (Cheque on Delivery) feature. Online retailers can opt for Timed Delivery and Saturday Delivery services for urgent deliveries.
