Coronavirus

At DPD, we keep a close eye on the coronavirus situation worldwide and safeguard the guidelines from RIVM. Which is why DPD has taken the necessary precautions affected. We have taken special measures for our Linehaul drivers, warehouse workers, drivers and office workers how to deal with parcels from affected countries. We will observe all measures expected in accordance with the authorities. Our employees have been informed about this.

Due to the wide range of parcels and the measures surrounding the corona virus, the delivery of parcels takes longer than you are used to. We do our very best to get the delivery back to the desired level.
