Delivery Details

MDL track and trace consignments delivered on our behalf by DPD and UPS.


UK mainland orders (except Scottish Highlands) should arrive within 48-72 hours, provided the customer is not on preferred day. Ireland, Scottish Highlands, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands may take an additional 24-48 hours.

DPD now offers a Predict Service which will tell you the exact hour that your parcels will be delivered and allow you to rearrange if necessary.  Watch a short film explaining more about this innovation.

Preferred Day is the term given to the day(s) on which MDL releases orders into the warehouse in order to deliver to its major customers, or the day on which our customers have requested we deliver. Read more about preferred day and the small order lead time used for smaller customers.

Export Customers pay freight and packing. MDL uses a number of carriers depending on how quickly the customer requires the order, and they are charged accordingly. Many of our customers use freight forwarders and their timetable for deliveries would naturally affect total delivery time. When placing an order a Customer Service representative would give more precise details.
