Many local retailers choose to manage their own delivery providers as it is a complex and costly process. Delivery providers include DPD, Royal Mail, Hived and Veho. Delivery options can be tailored to each retailer’s specific needs, but all of these options come with associated costs. Managing delivery providers can be a time-consuming task, and it’s important to keep track of shifting rates and contracts in order to stay competitive.
