ShipEngine Carriers UK

For UK-based ShipEngine accounts, you have immediate access to GlobalPost, EVRi, DPD, and Yodel services with ShipEngine Carriers (with more carriers to come soon!). There’s no need to create and connect individual carrier accounts. Activate ShipEngine Carriers by adding the billing method you wish to use to purchase your labels and add funds to your ShipEngine Balance.

Evri provides domestic drop-off and scheduled collection services. When using collection services, we automatically schedule a next-day pickup for those parcels with Evri. DPD and Yodel provide domestic drop-off services for either "print at home" or "print at store".

To learn more about our discounted rates, contact our sales team.
