Parcel alert

Last update: Thursday April 15th 2021

Coronavirus

We will keep you informed of all relevant developments at all times. We will also display all information and any delays on our website as well as possible for you and your customers. Our urgent advice to you is to display this information on your website in the best possible way, so that your customers also know what changes could be taken into account.

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.

Status overview per country

* note: Countries are locked for people and not for goods.


Netherlands

Due to the high number of corona infections, the government announced that a curfew will apply from Saturday 23 January to 28 April. Curfew is from 10:00 PM to 4:30 AM. This means that only professional traffic may take place, including parcel delivery. The introduction of this curfew has no impact on our services. This allows us to continue to process and deliver your parcels as you are used to from us, with the priority being to guarantee the health and safety of our employees and customers.

Pay attention! The opening hours of our Pickup parcelshops may have changed due to the curfew. The delivery and collection of parcels will remain the same.
