Preventive Actions COVID-19
We have spent the last 2 months learning more than we ever imagined about this unique coronavirus outbreak, officially known as COVID-19. We have been monitoring the rapid spread of this virus and the resulting sudden impact it is now having on the global economy. Our positive thoughts and vibes go out to all those who have already been affected by this crisis, and we hope that all of our customers and partners and all of their families, friends and colleagues stay as safe as they possibly can during this challenging period.
EshopWedrop and its family of companies began planning for an approach to this situation several weeks ago. Our plan and actions are focused on the health and well-being of our employees, customers, vendors, partners, and our communities. We have now begun implementing the first steps of the plan which includes having our employees work remotely as much as possible in order to reduce the risk of human-to-human transmission of this virus in our workplaces around the globe.
We are very flexible as an organization and we are well prepared for this type of situation. As we shift to this remote working employee model, we do not expect there to be any changes to the service and the support that we provide you.
According to the LT Government decision regarding the quarantine in Vilnius, we are closing our Vilnius Flagship with effect from Monday 16th of March, we will inform you as soon as we know as to when this will reopen.. We strongly recommend the use of door deliveries as a preferred and reliable last mile delivery option. Whilst some of the Hubs and Click & Collect options are still available, given future developments of the pandemic we might have to limit their usage in the future, too.
Regarding Origin Countries and the transport from each of them, it is likely that we will see delays given the extensive checks and controls in the Origin Countries as well as at the cross-border points. Italy is of particular concern now and we can already see delays from Italy, but we might see delays also for the transports from the other Origin Countries in the future. It is important to underline here that about 75% of the pan-European transport is made of road transport and this is vital for EU and highly likely to continue while the transports ban will continue to be applied only for passengers.
We are also going to stop for a period of 30 days to accept cash on delivery (COD) as a payment method for the orders placed by our customers beginning 16th of March.
You, our valuable customer seem to have already identified online shopping as a safer way to shop compared to the traditional way of shopping. As usual, cross-border online shopping is providing the opportunity to access wider markets and a diversified products portfolio often at better prices than the domestic ones. This is exactly what we all need during this period with prices and supply of goods domestically often being affected by excessive demand and distressed supply chains. We can see the number of parcels in our network continuing to grow strongly during this period and we are doing our utmost to serve you and keep on delivering the increasing number of parcels with the products needed during this period.
