Current information and actions by DPD Switzerland regarding Coronavirus


With Covid-19’s reach and development now worldwide, DPDgroup has a role to play, as strong players in the parcel delivery industry, in slowing down the progress of the novel Coronavirus. At DPDgroup, we have been monitoring the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation closely and following the advice issued by World Health Organisation and national authorities.


Measures of DPD Switzerland

In terms of implementation, we are adhering to the recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the instructions issued by the DPDgroup head office. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, we have introduced a number of measures such as working from home, staggered breaks, team separation, and travel and meeting cancellations. We have also created a task force which continuously monitors the situation and develops various scenarios and measures based on this. The aim is to maintain business and to protect the health of our employees and customers.

We are now introducing contactless delivery in order to safeguard the health of our parcel recipients. In the case of our services requiring a signature, you have the option as a recipient of adding your signature directly to the parcel label. This means we can make the delivery contactless and there is no need for you to provide your signature on the scanner. Our driver then takes a photo of the label with the signature clearly visible – in this way, we can continue to guarantee proof of delivery.
