How the PUDO Service works (Pick UP Drop Off)

  • Fixed daily collection charge on a small van or large van pending on how many items you may distribute from your main warehouse or you can drop off daily at our local site (no charge if dropped off)
  • Once in our depot we will move each package throughout the night via our internal trunking network to the nearest PUDO location to your engineer, they can collect from 8 am onwards from that site
  • We will charge a fixed price per package (pending on weight and size of box) If any returns back from your engineers these will be charged at a fixed price per package (pending on weight and size of box)
  • With this service, if your engineers/maintenance staff travel on a daily basis to a certain location this will save on travel costs and time and we will map our nearest PUDO points to their home postcodes
