your order is dispatched by DPD you can view your tracking number in the 'Your
Account' section of the HSE Books shop. Simply select 'order status' and there
should be a link to the details of your parcel on the DPD site:

and paste it into a new browser.

customers having access to their tracking number and DPD updating their site
with tracking details.

options listed above, only DHL International is a tracked service.

delivered free of charge.
