I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me during my training for the London Marathon which is this Sunday 22nd April. I have to say its been very challenging four months, working through injuries, and all the bad weather but knowing why I am doing it and the small changes we can make for the St John Ambulance Service has made it all worthwhile.
Again I would like to thank everyone who has supported me along the way. If you would like to sponsor me for this great cause there is still time please find the link below.
APC Depot – Edinburgh – 19/3/2018
Good progress has been made delivering the backlog of freight throughout the weekend and we estimate the depot is now 24 hours behind where it needs to be for resuming next day deliveries consistently.
There are extra drivers and an increased administration support on site to ensure this backlog is eliminated.
It is still recommended to only send freight through if it is essential.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
The South West
Due to the weather issues yesterday a lot of depots are struggling with the road network both in getting drivers to work and subsequently out to deliver. The weather is forecast to get warmer today so the disruption should be a lot shorter than the previous events.
Using the APC EXPECT pre-delivery notification service, we can now give your customers more detailed information about when their delivery will be made.
As an APC customer we can now offer you the ability to set up your customers to receive an automatic text or email on the morning of the delivery date. The message will tell them the time window in which the driver will make the delivery that day.
Using this service will reduces ETA calls into your business. Why not let our technology do the work to keep your customers informed.
If you would like to take advantage of this great new functionality then please get in touch. We will talk you through the different options available so you can choose what will work best for your customers.
When it comes to APC Overnight deliveries there are strict rules that we have to stick to. We have to attempt delivery as per the senders request. Depending on which service is selected will depend on when delivery is attempted i.e a next day delivery is not time specific and will be attempted during the standard Monday – Friday working day.
Some senders choose to send on a timed service which might be PRE 9am or on a Saturday before noon service. Senders also have the option to specify whether we can leave the goods safe or with a neighbour. If the sender has not given permission, we cannot release the goods without it being signed for at the designated delivery address. This can sometimes be frustrating for the recipient but we have to follow our contractual obligations and deliver as requested by the sender.
Something we also get asked is if we can change the delivery address, again unless we obtain explicit instruction direct from the sender then we cannot amend due to possible fraud/security reasons.
There is nothing that we like more than to see the warehouse floor empty and nicely swept at the end of each day but there will always be those deliveries that cannot be made due to the recipient not being in and therefore returned to the depot to await further instruction. If we can leave with a neighbour or leave in a safe place then that is great but remember this has to be specified by the sender.
If you have any issues or concerns please chat to us online using our online chat facility.
We are expecting major disruption over the next 48 hours due to the adverse weather conditions and road issues with the Midlands and Central Wales being specifically affected.
Overnight the forecast is for very low temperatures (-10 to -15 degrees centigrade) which will add further problems. All attempts will be made to avoid any delays in moving your freight however there could be delays which are out of our control.
