SERVICE UPDATES

POST DATE: 28.06.2021

For consignments manifested on or after 29th June 2021 temporary service restrictions will apply to Depots

027, 093 and 104.  Next day service remains active, however there will be restrictions applied to the economy service and premium timed options. These service adjustments will remain in place for the foreseeable future and will apply to all postcodes covered by the three depots:

027 SO and PO

093 BH, SP5 and SP6

104 EX and TQ

➢ Three day economy service only

➢ Pre-Booked Service for 3rd 4 th or 5th day only

➢ Multiple pallet consignments - Maximum of 5 pallets per consignment

➢ No TI (Timed Service)

➢ No AM

➢ No PM

➢ TS will apply to Regional Distribution Centres (RDC) and those businesses only operating specific allocated times.

➢ Saturday Services as normal

 

Decisions of this nature are never made easily and like many depots increased pallet volumes lead to unusually high service failures, however the growth experienced by these three depots coupled with their geographic location continues to cause operational issues. Customers experience service delays and in turn requesting depots suffer increased customer queries, all of which have to be managed. Therefore, to help ensure the due date service is achieved and until such time the pallet volumes to the aforementioned postcodes stabilise these temporary restrictions remain active.
