Weather Impact update

19/03/2019

I didn’t think we would be posting another weather impact notice at this stage of March, the poor Daffodils ! The backlog from the previous weather issues has just about been cleared, and normality resumed, then more snow arrives.

Over the weekend there has been heavy snowfall in many parts of the UK, however, the South and South West of England have been severely impacted.

As of 09:00 today DPD network status is as follows:

Partial Operation means 10-15% of parcels affected
Limited Operation means 15 -40% of parcels affected
Substantial Impact Operation over 40% of parcels affected

Southern Network
Bournemouth – Limited Impact, 1 day delay
