  1. By far ICS or Indian Courier Service is the worst courier I have come across in my life. I sent my personal belongings including paintings and fragile items to india from Dubai. I was not there at the time of packing and hence didn’t notice the shoddy work they did. Cello tapes were stuck on the paintings and marker pens were used on top of it to write the code and this destroyed the paintings right away. This is absolute lack of common sense and i don’t know how they are operating as a courier service when they don’t know the basics of packing. Glass items were found broken on arrival and these guys don’t take any responsibility for damage. Please use this courier service at your own risk.

  2. Could you please tell me the whole process how to get your franchise in Delhi if I would like to start this.So please tell me soon so that I could take my decision.

    Sachin Chautala

  3. DTDC become Express Company now a days, consigner can send their huge and heavy parcels also like House Hold Goods, iron and steel materials, heavy documental bags, etc…

  4. Hello friends my name is manas i am from gaya bihar
    I have courier to delhi blue dart did excellent service and dtcc are having poorest services this days

  5. None of the Courier services in India are good

    I have seen Indian post destroying a person job and future….To prove that he have spent Rs 10 on his post of job he paid Rs 20000 in court case and the case is still going

    DTDC is little okay

    According to me worst are Services are Blue Dart and First Flight

    All of them are pain in the as trust me…. They are Such an Headache………That you might need medicine to deal with them

    Still Speed Post (of Indian post) is one consider is a post which is I consider as average good service (5 out of 10)……Rest of the Courier services I would gladly like to provide a ratings of (-6,-3,-1 out of (+)10) which is not possible

    Don’t you think that I am telling a this with fairy tale…. I had my own experience with Blue dart and First Flight

  6. This is the worst service from DTDC. its just a name nothing else. its better to go for local courier service at least I can find some responsible person to find out

    My passport is too urgent so I approached dtdc they charged me 560/- from guntur to hyderabad(300 kms) vide no: V35529294 dated 20th April. they promised that it will reach to me by 12:00 noon on 21st April(today) since from 12pm I am not able to track the consignment even.

    I called to their customer support in hyderabad(no response)

    I tracked online and given, my mail -id to intimate the status – no response

    then I called the booking branch from there they are tracking, still now its 6 pm god knows where is my consignment and tomorrow I have to submit my passport to consulate service center.

    so dear friends please use all the local couriers instead of using this worst and unresponsive service.

    • Yes totally true dtcc is worst my flight for Singapore is on Monday i have courier my visa till now i have not got

  7. Worst service of blue dart among other courier service provider. other service providers at-least calls for the address if they don’t find one. Without come to that given address, they will put the status as “Consignee not available”. They dont make any call. This is happening all the times.

    courier Ch No.K75130535 in perhaps last week of November. Delivery date promised
    to them was 1st Dec.2014.
    Till this date [22nd Dec.2014] they have not delivered the Consignment to us.
    What is worse is; on tracking the consignment,they claim to have delivered it to us on
    4th December 2014.Can any courier which claim to be amongst the best can be more irresponsible?

  27. I had an urgent courier for US i trusted blue star express they are the best in the Trade.

    First of all they are through professionals most importantly they delivered my shipment door to door within 36 hours of pick up . Amazing . Afterwards I have send more than 100 parcels to various countries..i am delighted by the service they provide . Thums up .


    They have provided all contact information wrong. Even tracking is also deactive. The courier is also not deliver on time. When you want to ask something there is no way to contact them, YOU JUST HAVE TO KEEP FAITH IN GOD THAT YOUR COURIER WILL DELIVER TO YOU AND WAIT FOR IT. Poor

    Best services
    1. Speed Post
    2. Business/Express Parcel with COD Facilities

  30. DTDC courier is best in some places but it is bad in other places due to irresponsible answers to the customers by the delars

    • All the services are ok if you want to send it once in a blue moon. I am a online seller and trust me yet to find a courier service with resaonable rates. I have to charge more to the customer due to high courier rates.

  31. This is for those that think India Post should be in the top 5. They’re a lazy bunch. Period. A SPEED POST through them took 19 days to reach UK (it was a Demand Draft) No bloody response from any authorities. Their online tracking is unreliable and their employees even more so. Their work timings show they’re supposed to work till 5, but try calling at 3-4 in the afternoon and it’s very unlikely any one will answer. If they do, they’re as much aware of your courier status as you are. It’s probable it’s a one off case, but it’s been enough to sour my taste for the ‘service’ they provide.
    P.S – Please post your honest comments based on experiences, this isn’t a publicity space for the company you work with or a franchise you own.

  32. @rahul, i am also start online sell so i am confused which one best?. blue dert is best but price is very high i can not afford that price because service charge is high then product price will made high. i can not afford.if have any idea then please give me. Thanx.

  33. I am looking for a courier vendor for non document delivery for my business..looking for a cheap and timely delivery courier vendor. Around 1100 packets a month or 2000 kg. Looking for DTDC / Bluedart/ Aramex/ first flight specifically.



  35. I like FedEx for its tracking facilities… They updating each and every movement of our courier instantly..
    Professional is bad and poor customer service and tracking facilities… I sent one parcel through professional it was successfully delivered but tracking status showing ” on transist” till now… They are not updating anything….

    • Feedax and Blue-Dart is very slow service. DTDC courier is very best all over india. Thanks DTDC courier services From GOPAL SHARMA.

  36. I have been experiencing DTDC services in my last two consignments. Both the experiences has been bad and the delivery is delayed by at least 1 week. I think Indian post services are better as they are cheaper than DTDC and are to some extend more reliable. The accountability in service is less albeit..but the courier is received without any follow-ups. Website created by DTDC is not at all user-friendly..there customer care doesn’t pick up calls..minimal accountability.

  37. I am surprised FIRST FLIGHT is not there in the first five. They do give a wonderful service in the domestic sector and my experience with them has been positive all through out.

  38. I don’t think IndiaPost should deserve to be in top 10. Why you haven’t posted about Maruti Courier? They are price worthy.

  39. I wonder how come India post is among the five best courier services in India. Their employees steal contents of the parcel. This had happened to me more than five times. Filing a complaint to their office will give you nothing. If the parcel sent through India post is lost, it’s you responsibility. No theirs.

    If you trust them then continue sending. But many people would agree the above comment.

    • Dear frnd,
      Nw im nt argue above ur reply.bt im sayin sme advice& suggestions to u.Wher u complaint logged ?..If u nt trust the Postal employee, then u can directly feed the complaint in the following link www. indiapost. gov. in/Ccc/PCData.aspx .if proper response nt come eventhough complaint logged in online den see the following link and mail to corresponding circle co ordinator and finally u will get Ur parcel status or u ll get the amount for this…

      • if proper response nt come eventhough complaint logged in online den see the following link www. indiapost. gov. in/PC_GuideLines.aspx#C and mail to corresponding circle co ordinator and finally u will get Ur parcel status or u ll get the amount for this…

        Then Say ur comments… I ll wait for ur response

  40. I am an online seller. So i have to ship products all over the country. Till the date,i have used the service of almost all courier services from small couriers like Madhur/Maruti to the big giants like Bluedart/Fedex. And from my experience.i think that Bluedart is definitely the best Courier in India. The reason for the same is that they don’t just deliver before your expected time but also they will always keep their customers satisfaction on top priority list. For e.g. if you want to open any parcel which you have bought online just in order to make sure that the product is genuine,they LPs like DTDC/Trackon/Professional Courier will never let you do so before signing on the PODs. And in many cases even Fedex will also do the same. So my top 5 LPs in India for domestic shipping will be
    5.Indian Post
    DTDC Plus service is also better as it delivers the next business day if the pickup is before 5Pm and so far it’s good for the few areas where it is serviceable.

  41. thanks a lot for get in touch with courier services in india. All of these couriers are best service providers. GATI courier and Trackon courier also need to be add to this list. Because these two are also good in India.

      Mr. SKSINGH
      email: dtdcpalla @ gmail . com

      • Exactly. Courier services in India are just rubxxh. Don’t deliver to homes. Have to pickup the item from their office, inspite of having to call them day-after-day. I’m fedup with all the courier services. Bluedart, Fedex all are the same here in Guwahati, Assam. Only DTDC is good (but, the reason might be that they have an office near my home).

        • Yes Iagreee… DTDC is the worst service inIndia… A courier from Kerala reached me in bangalore after 4 days.. it’s better if somebody carrys the courier directly in person.. so it will reach within 24 hours..

          • Hi I am using the DTDC from last 6 years, I am quiet happy with their service. My company is dispatching 60% of the parcels to the small town & Remote Locations, where DTDC is delivering within 2-5 working days.
            Their rates are quite affordable, which is lower than other branded courier service such as Blue-Dart, First Flight, FedEx & Overnight. I am using their all services such as Lite Express, Premium Service & Prime Time Services.
            I use these services according to my requirement… If I need Urgent i.e Time Bound then I use Prime Time Plus. If needed to be send any valuable items I use Premium Service, If I need to send normal courier then I use Lite Service.
            I have used services other than DTDC such as Overnight, FF, FedEx & Blue-Dart. I am bit satisfied with them because DTDC provides you one stop service.
            If you look on the problem of service part; it comes with all the courier companies. The best thing is that we need to analyze how much percentage of parcels is RTOed, Lost & Damaged and Delayed …… n…. Delivered. It brings you to conclude the effects of service. I am sending the parcels with proper packing that contains valuable item till I have received only two cases of damage, that also I have been claimed for damage.
            We can’t judge the single courier as that having a worst in service due to delayed in your courier, there may be lots of reason for delaying as offloading, backlog, weather, strikes, Information Technology & Operations etc.
            At last the important thing is matter in courier industry is better coordination & proper information from the courier people.

            If needed any kind of assistance regarding courier, feel free to contact me in my email id.

            Samad A.
