How COVID changes Delivery

How COVID changes Delivery

COVID-19 has massively changed every aspect of day-to-day life. From shopping to working out. When it comes to deliveries, there are new requirements and guidelines that must be adhered to that you may not be aware of. Read on to learn more about how the Coronavirus has changed how we deliver your products.


1.      Reliable Delivery

As aforementioned in a previous article, e-Commerce sales have risen by 129% thanks to the current pandemic. That’s why we are working closely with our clients to ensure we can meet the newfound demand to keep your customers happy and your business safe. We keep up to date with the latest guidelines set forth by the government in regards to logistics and general coronavirus preventative measures. We hope you’ll agree that being proactive in this way is vital to ensure you can depend on us to get your products out there,  as sudden outbreaks could ruin any supply chain – big or small as we saw at the beginning of the pandemic.


2.      Socially Distant Delivery

All of our drivers will respect current social distancing guidelines. This means minimising contact with others and the items we deliver. We encourage our operators to wear a mask when required, and the UK Government has taken measures to reduce in-cab checks on all logistics vehicles. This means you can rest assured knowing that a minimal amount of (socially distant) contact has occurred during transport, to keep everyone involved in the process safe and dependable when it comes to delivering your products.


3.      Essential Delivery

The government recommends that essential deliveries are carried out as a priority, this can mean that larger companies now have to delay non-essential delivery. Trusting us as an independent parcel provider, as part of one of the biggest delivery networks in the UK means you can rest assured knowing we are ready and willing to treat your delivery with the value it holds in the current struggling economy. Trusting national delivery also helps remove the hassle of problematic and ever-changing travel bans and guidelines. In-air logistics are constantly fluctuating in reliability, but we can ensure your products are getting across the UK every day, keeping the economy thriving as well as your business.


4.      The Future of Delivery

Thanks to COVID-19, the world has changed – and that includes how your customers are buying. E-commerce has fully cemented itself as a top contender for the primary way your customers are looking to purchase. In the new world, you will need a logistics solution you can always rely upon. You will need to have a powerful delivery network that can reach your customers across the UK, with the flexibility to work within ever-changing guidelines and situations.


YDL can help you match E-commerce demands, and prepare your business for the potential of a second wave without losing customers. Ensure you can reliably provide to your customers by trusting one of the most robust and dependable delivery networks today and work with us for the logistics solution you need.

    I had a pallet delivery last week. The clean, bright, shiny vehicle that came ?was bang on time.
    The driver was super polite, and super customer focused. A real credit to your company.
    My whole YDL experience was great value for money. My consignment was clearly treated with care. I could not be happier. And that’s why I have no hesitation in recommending YDL

    Hi – I’ve used YDL for a while now. I have never been let down. Unlike other companies? Your communication is first rate. You do what you say you’ll do, you turn up when you say you will. For me? YDL stand out from the crowd and are the best in what they do.
    Thank my regular driver, he’s a really “happy chappy”
    A great firm, and I’d recommend you all day, every day!!!!!!!

    Your driver has today been and delivered a pallet of turf to my address. As a pensioner I am worried about COVID and social distancing. And was worried the driver, like lots I see everyday, would need “reminding” of his responsibilities to his customers. I was so impressed with what I saw. Your driver wore disposable gloves. Fresh out of the box. He wore a face mask, even asked if I would prefer he wear a PPE screen (as long as a mask was worn then I am happy)
    Your driver adhered to social distancing at all times. But it never stopped him talking with me. A really friendly guy, clearly well trained. I felt so relieved and appreciative in these worrying times.
    Well done YDL
