Following developments regarding the recent COVID-19 outbreak, delivery networks have been experiencing delays to a number of destinations. Actions taken by countries to lockdown borders and reduce movement of people is set to affect transit times and delivery options. Our latest updates are outlined below.

Public Health England (PHE) have advised that people receiving parcels and packages are not at risk of contracting Covid-19, in fact it is safer to stay at home and accept a delivery rather than visit the shops. With this in mind all of our couriers are prioritising the health and welfare of both staff and customers by taking sensible precautions to reduce the spread of Covid-19 whilst minimising service disruptions. Depots are reducing the amount of non essential staff by encouraging working from home where possible. Shifts are being staggered to reduce contact between staff and regular, thorough cleaning is taking place in depots and on vehicles.

To further reduce the spread of Covid-19 and minimise contact between drivers and customers all of our delivery services no longer require a signature upon delivery. The drivers will confirm the recipients identity and will sign the parcel as delivered on their behalf.

We are updating this page as and when we are provided with information from the carriers. This is an ever changing situation and we are working hard to keep you informed and up to date.
