An update from Australia Post due to the increasing impact of COVID19
DHL regrets to inform customers that due to reductions in air freight capacity, there may be delays on the parcels
network that DHL operates around the country, particularly to regional and rural communities.
Delays will mean:
The delivery time for Perth and Brisbane may increase up to five days
The delivery time for North Queensland may increase up to seven days
The delivery time for Tasmania may increase up to three days
DHL have implemented additional measures with their delivery drivers, posties and DHL staff for delivery or collection of parcels due to the increasing impact of coronavirus. To minimise the risk of contracting or spreading coronavirus, all parcels will no longer require a signature for delivery and/or collection.
In all cases, whether a driver or postie delivers to the door or a customer goes in to their local DHL to collect a parcel, a staff member will ask and record the customer’s name and sign on their behalf. The customer will still need to be present for this to occur, but contact will be minimised by either leaving the parcel at the door until the driver or postie has left the premises or left for the customer to pick up on the counter.
These measures will apply to all Australian ecommerce orders placed on
