We have stopped any non-business critical visitors entering the building.
We have provided our drivers with protective gloves and anti-bacterial wipes.
Both APC and TPN networks have implemented temporary measures for the signing of the electronic POD devices effective immediately. These are detailed as follows :
TPN have advised that should a consignee wish to not sign the drivers electronic device at point of delivery, they are to sign on their own piece of paper with their own pen – the driver will then take a picture of this signature.
APC have advised that should a consignee wish to not sign the driver’s electronic device at point of delivery, the driver should type the receiver’s full name and sign “CV” in the signature box.
We will continue to monitor the impact that this unprecedented situation brings in the coming weeks however please be mindful that during this time delays may be encountered due to staffing issues and increased cleaning diligence.
