woman shipping multiple parcels

Looking for ways to save more on parcel delivery couriers and get cheaper express shipping?

Great news: Multipickup might be just what you need this silly season (and beyond)!

Let’s dive into what it is, how it works and how you can win with this “super saving” option.


The More You Send, The More You’ll Save

You probably know that Transdirect members get access to Australia’s cheapest courier quotes, and that membership is free with instant approval

On top of that, Transdirect members can save even more by taking advantage of the Multipickup options from select courier services, such as CouriersPlease or Aramex (formerly Fastway Couriers).   

Multipickup bookings enable you to book collection for a group of parcels by the same courier, at the same time.

So, instead of making several different pickups across consecutive days, if you can consolidate your parcel pickups, our couriers can provide even greater savings and rates. Win-win, right?


How to Book Cheaper Courier Services with Multipickup

When making a booking, if you select Multipickup as an option, you’ll need to complete the details for all of the parcels to have them booked and collected by the courier.

Choosing which option works for you will depend on how many parcels you have, and of course, how quickly you’ll be able to consolidate them for pickup.

Example: Let’s say you know you’ll have multiple parcels to send throughout the week, but you want to consolidate shipping and pickups to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. You can maximise your savings by selecting the Multiship option to fit your needs/volume, rather than scheduling daily pickups.

For instance, if delivery time is a priority, and you have 7 packages, you’d choose the Multipickup option for 7 packages to meet the minimum requirement quickly. Other Multipickup options include 3, 10 and 21 parcels. (For regular high-volume shipping needs, our team is always available to help ensure you get the best courier rates in Australia.

Here’s a quick video walkthrough of how Multipickup booking works, to help you get started:
