Covid-19 Updates 

Updated April 2021

The Republic of Ireland will be in Level 5 lockdown restrictions until the end of April. Only essential retail is open and only those designated as essential workers are allowed to travel. Many areas of GB and mainland Europe are also being affected by lockdown restrictions at this time. As always, the DPD Team are part of the Essential Workers Team and we are delivering throughout the country. 

Note: France has entered a four week lockdown as of April 1st. Please ensure that if you are shipping to a business that the premises is open to receive delivery. 

​​​​​​​​​​​
Following the advice and guidelines set by the HSE, NHS and WHO, we are continuing to take the following steps to protect our staff, our customers and your customers. 
 

  • Our drivers continue to operate a contactless delivery system. If no-one is home, and a suitable Safe Place is available, our drivers will deliver the parcel to the designated Safe Place or to a Neighbour (according to the shippers’ preferences).  
  • If someone is at home, the driver will place the parcel on the ground at a safe distance from the consignee. Driver will request the consignee name and will enter this into the scanner. 
  • If you are shipping to a business premises, please ensure that they're actually open to accept delivery. If a premises is not open, goods will be returned to you.  
  • The option to Collect at Depot  from the 'Manage Delivery' link is not available at this time. This means that consignees will no longer be offered the option to collect their parcel from a DPD depot - however, they can reschedule delivery date, or Manage Delivery to one of our Pickup Points.
