Current information about the coronavirus

Dear Customers and Partners,


As parcel service providers we make a major contribution to maintaining critical infrastructures in Austria and throughout Europe.

We have set up this page for you to keep you up to date with the latest developments in connection with COVID-19.

In principle, we carry out the delivery and collection of parcels wherever it is not prohibited by the authorities.

If you have any restrictions on personal parcel delivery at your company, please give us authorisation to deposit your parcels. In this way your parcels can be delivered without direct personal contact.

Please only ship consignments for which acceptance of the goods is guaranteed. Shipments that can't be delivered will be returned, as we only have limited storage capacity.

In addition, we hope you will understand that there may be service delays within our Customer Service department due to the increased number of enquiries.
