Signing without a scanner
to increasing concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the measures
taken by the government, there is an increased resistance to sign for delivery.
As a result, we now offer the recipient the option to give drop-off permission.
This can be done up to 30 minutes before delivery via DPD’s Predict Service.
This makes signing on the scanner unnecessary and the driver delivers the
package to a location specified by the recipient. As soon as the package
has been dropped-off, the recipient will be notified automatically.
If the recipient does not give a drop-off permit or has not received a Predict notification, the driver takes a photo of the front door including the house number. In that case it’s still not neccasary to give a signature via the scanner and a safe distance can be respected.
