DPD - Coronavirus Update #3 - 25/03/2020

"We can confirm that all our parcel collection, sortation and delivery operations are continuing as normal. Our service levels have also been excellent throughout our network.

Delivery network

In addition to the new contact free delivery processes we have implemented in recent weeks, we have now introduced a new Swap It process which eliminates contact and ensures social distancing. With the new process, our drivers will only touch the Swap It packaging and your customers will only need to touch the items they are swapping and receiving. Yesterday we also suspended our DPD Pickup service to comply with the Government's advice to close non-essential shops.

Social Distancing for our people

We are doing everything possible to support our people and we have implemented new social distancing measures for everyone at work to help reduce social interaction between people. This involves staying 2 metres apart during briefings and for all operational procedures such as loading and unloading vehicles. We are also operating a wave delivery program which staggers driver start times to reduce the number of drivers on site at the same time and to minimise the contact of people. We are doing everything possible to support our customers and our people so that we can minimise any disruption and continue giving you and your customers the best possible delivery experience"
