Desk to Desk Courier & Cargo, more known as DTDC, is India's biggest postal service, founded in 1990 and headquartered in Bangalore. It handles normal and express packages both within India and internationally.
DTDC started in 1990 from zero, with Subhasish Chakraborty, its' founder, lacking funds to start a shipping and receiving company - which is how he came up with an idea of Corporate Social Responsibility, or CSR. With it, Chakraborty partnered with like-minded entrepreneurs, and together, they've elevated DTDC to what it is now.
The philosophy of CSR incorporates the idea that corporate success and social welfare are interdependent. With it, DTDC aims to enrich thousands of people by turning them into entrepreneurs and, as such, creating even more job opportunities for the poorer classes of the society.
Nowadays, DTDC provides supply chains throughout all of India, and also has branches outside of the country, in Asia, Europe and the U.S.

How does DTDC International update the tracking
At each and every stage of delivery, the DTDC International tracking status receives an update. Since every parcel comes with a unique tracking number, it's very likely that your package specifically will have its' route history updated.
Bear in mind that due to the load most postal services have to go through, the update may take up to 24 or, in edge cases, 48 hours to happen. Even though eTracking keeps you up to date with the package in real time, updates themselves may not be instantaneous.
What to do if DTDC International tracking is not updated
Sometimes, DTDC International location tracking may not update after a long time, even though it's not in a multi-day transit. In cases like this, you may want to wait 24 hours more for the courier to update the tracking history. If that doesn't happen either, consider calling DTDC International 's customer service.
What to do if the parcel is not delivered
Much more often than not, DTDC International should deliver the package on the estimated date, but due to various circumstances, it's never guaranteed.
In case your package doesn't arrive on time, you can:
- wait for 24 or 48 hours past the estimated delivery date;
- report the missing package to the courier so that they could look for the package and send it to you.
If both of those methods fail, you very likely should apply for damage compensation.
To claim compensation for damage, check DTDC International 's info pages for how to do that or, if you won't be able to find the right bit of info, call customer support so they could provide you with each step. Generally, you'd need to check whether or not your package is eligible for such a compensation, then figure out what's the timeframe of filing such a claim, then collect all the documentation and evidence required to prove that you have indeed paid money for the package and that it did not arrive, or it arrived in a severely beat-up state.
In order to prevent packages from not getting delivered, consider investing into a better shipping insurance. This should not only provide better guarantee of the parcel reaching your doors, but also better and more detailed DTDC International delivery tracking.
Track DTDC International by tracking number
Every package is provided with a unique ID - an identifier used to easily keep track of a parcel by both the recepient and postal services. eTracking makes DTDC International tracking number lookup possible and easy - as long as the tracking number is there.
After your order is confirmed, the store you bought the item from should provide you with a tracking ID, either through the order confirmation letter, or through the orders page. If you're still not sure where to find it, consult the store's help pages. Remember that there may be certain items that require you to pay extra for detailed tracking, or even as much as the tracking number itself, so it might not be present at all.
If you do find the tracking ID, copy it, then paste it into the corresponding field in eTracking, then hit Enter to receive detailed tracking info on this number.
DTDC tracking number format
DTDC tracking number structure is usually one letter, followed by 8 more alphanumeric characters.
