Weather Impact update

DPD ran a successful Sunday operation yesterday and reduced their national backlog to around 30% of their current off-peak capacity.

Regarding the backlog in Scotland DPD estimate that this may take DPD towards the end of the

week as weather conditions still remain challenging in a number of areas.

DPD are also pleased to confirm DPD Ireland has reopened but has a significant backlog, which will

take several days to clear.

Please be aware that we and DPD are doing everything possible to minimise the disruption, but in all

depots that are impacted DPD are currently unable to guarantee Premium Services (before 10:30,

before noon).

As of 09:00 today (05/03/2108) DPD network status is as follows:
