DPD UK Pauses Parcel Delivery To Ireland For Five Days

The company say "significant changes" are required to the way it takes parcels cross-border.

DPD UK is pausing its parcel delivery services to Ireland until at least Wednesday January 13th.

The company has put its European deliveries on hold following Brexit, saying it's led to more complex processes and put extra pressure on its turnaround times.

In a statement, it says "significant changes" are required to the way it takes parcels cross-border.

It also added that the hub it Athlone won't be affected. 

Des Travers, Chief Executive of DPD Ireland, says it will take time for companies to get used to the new processes:

DPD Issued the following statement to Midlands103 this morning:

This will not affect the Athlone hub at all. Some points to note:

  • DPD Ireland is not experiencing delays, as soon as the UK shipments reach Ireland they will be dispatched immediately. 
  • DPD Ireland receives shipments from many other brands directly which don’t go through DPD UK and so there is no delay with these - Ebay, JD Sports etc
  • There are no delays between ROI parcels. 
  • This is a temporary measure to allow DPD UK manage the backlog of parcels and deem them ready for dispatch from the UK.
