Live service updates

Service updates from DHL Parcel UK

We strive to deliver every parcel safely and on time - however occasionally road closures due to planned events or unexpected incidents, weather conditions or system outages may affect or otherwise disrupt delivery services.

Whenever we're aware of a potential interruption to our deliveries, we'll post an update here with as much detail as possible, so you can be well-informed on the arrival of your parcel.


Due to a mobile data issue with our supplier, our drivers are currently unable to make updates to delivery status when out on the road. This is impacting the live email notifications and text messages which are sent to customers during the day of delivery.

Please be advised that deliveries are not affected and are continuing as normal although parcel status may not be showing accurately when tracking online or by phone. Technical teams from the mobile data supplier are currently investigating the issue. 

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact your Account Manager.


One of our trailers which was en route to Truro failed to make connection with our delivery fleet this morning due to a vehicle breakdown. Our operations teams have been working hard to limit service disruption, but some parcel deliveries may be impacted in the Truro area. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


If you're waiting for a delivery of an iPhone and have received a DHL Parcel UK tracking number, reference number or shipment number you can track your delivery here.

Due to an accident on the M25 clockwise between J28 and J27, as well as a separate incident on the A13, there is severe congestion in the South East.

The DHL Parcel UK website will be unavailable  on Sunday 30th September between 9am and 10.30am whilst we carry out scheduled maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
