DPD honoured with three awards by Institute of Couriers

Leading parcel delivery firm DPD won three awards at the Institute of Couriers’ National Courier Awards 2020. The treble takes DPD’s recent run of award wins to an incredible 10 in the last 23 days.

DPD was recognised by the Institute of Couriers with two Corporate Awards for its role in delivering personal protective equipment (PPE) to the NHS during lockdown and improvements made to road safety. In addition, DPD Linehaul Recruiter Natasha Emery was recognised with an Individual National Courier Award.

Dwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO at the time commented, “This is turning into an incredible few weeks for DPD. Ten awards in less than a month is good going, by anyone’s standards. We really appreciate all the work done by the Institute of Couriers and it is great to celebrate the role the entire sector played and is still playing, during the pandemic. We are an industry that is often taken for granted, but two of the very few good things to come out of all of this has been the response of our sector and the much greater appreciation and understanding of the vital role we all play.
“It is difficult to single out any individual or team for recognition when the whole company has been magnificent this year, but I’m absolutely delighted for Natasha and the Road Safety guys. I’m incredibly proud of our overall response, especially our work with the NHS, but also in terms of food deliveries which we had to scale-up almost overnight. We know now that things aren’t going to change fundamentally for a while yet, so we are continuing to manage the challenge of record parcel volumes, but I know the team will keep stepping up and playing their part in helping get the nation through this.”
