Important Information Regarding Delivery via ParcelForce during outbreak of COVID 19
"Due to the current situation, there are significant impacts on our ability to maintain all our usual service levels. We will continue offering our services, receiving and delivering parcels for our customers but there may be disruptions to some services under current conditions.
As a result, we will be suspending service guarantees from 18 March 2020 but will seek to ensure ‘all reasonable endeavours’ to maintain service levels where we can.
Due to the evolving exceptional circumstances, we are closely monitoring the situation at an individual country level. Because of this, we are also suspending our international delivery guarantees as we may experience some delivery delays. Please note that some of our international partners are also suspending requirements for signature on delivery, and therefore we are unable to guarantee to you that signature on delivery will be obtained outside of the UK. Some countries may also have a suspension of service, or a suspension of service guarantee in place.
We are still processing your international parcels until we are informed otherwise by our overseas partners. In the vast majority of cases our services are continuing as normal. For the latest service updates across the UK and overseas please visit parcelforce.com/service-updates"
