With more snow expected to hit the UK in the coming days,
online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has called on companies to
ensure they keep customers expecting deliveries informed.
Forecasters have warned that the cold spell currently gripping Britain could last
until the end of the month, with very cold temperatures leading to hard frosts in
the coming days. Severe weather warnings for snow and ice are in place across many
parts of England and Wales, and Parcel2Go, which helps individuals and businesses to
organise more than two million international and UK mail shipments each
year, has warned that delays are possible.
In order to help customers stay on top of the latest developments, Parcel2Go has
added a new weather warning information link to its homepage which is being updated
as necessary with news of the latest weather-related developments affecting postcode
areas across the UK.
Parcel2Go's marketing director, Richard Mercer, has called on businesses to check
the site for important updates and where necessary, communicate these to customers
who are expecting domestic and international parcel deliveries.
He said: "Temperatures have been well below freezing and unsurprisingly this is
playing havoc on some of the country's roads.
"Parcel delivery services and collections will continue as normal if it is deemed
safe for drivers to reach addresses, but to a large degree we are at the mercy of
the elements and as we have seen over the past week, conditions can change extremely
"We're asking people who are expecting parcels to be collected to bear with us if
weather conditions are preventing a driver from calling, and for companies to let
their customers know that consignments could be delayed as a result."
