Fastlane International becomes ParcelCompare

UK-based parcel broker Fastlane International has been renamed and rebranded as, providing greater clarity over the price comparison site’s function.

Fastlane International was originally established as a global courier in 1985 and has transformed in recent years into a parcel price comparison site, enabling its users to compare rival courier services and book them at a substantially discounted rate.

In recognition of its new role as a parcel price comparison site, ParcelCompare has an all-new website enabling senders to compare the prices and services of all the leading quality couriers at a glance, and book them in just a few clicks.

David Jinks, head of consumer research, ParcelCompare, said, “ParcelCompare describes exactly what we now do. Customers can compare prices and shipping times for all the leading quality couriers such as UPS, DHL and TNT and book in minutes.

“Make no mistake, ParcelCompare will be just as fast as Fastlane International, and now serves over 220 countries around the world, giving an unbeatable range of choice on international shipments as well as a matchless UK service.

“Customers can compare services and book them at a discounted price far cheaper than they can get by going direct to the courier. It’s all due to the pioneering technology that powers our website, and the sheer bulk buying power ParcelCompare has, compared with individual shippers and retailers.

“For anything over the size of a large letter ParcelCompare will be up to 60% cheaper than the Post Office, and its partner couriers come to your door to pick up the parcel.”
