Latest From DPD

19 March 2020

Today, DPD Local implements new measures in response to COVID-19 to ensure we protect our service to you, your customers and our people.

We continue to follow the advice issued by HM Government and act accordingly.

At present we can report that our parcel collection, sortation and delivery operations continue as normal.

Latest operational response

We are minimising risk across our business by implementing a new range of measures:

At the point of delivery

We are no longer asking customers to sign our handheld units and instead our drivers will sign it on their behalf. We will record the consignees name and a 'Delivered on Authority' message in the signature section of the unit.

With this new process you will still get your full track and trace functionality, giving you complete visibility of all your parcels.

This now forms our proof of delivery process for all deliveries until further notice.

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

Communication at this time is of critical importance and we will issue an update to this bulletin tomorrow
