Whether bad weather conditions are the cause of delays in parcel delivery is a question that rains down on all of us

Ice, snow, flooding and windy conditions are not ideal

Bad weather conditions can affect all modes of delivery.  That is, roads, rail as well as air.  For instance, ice, snow, flooding and windy conditions can cause disruptions to transport systems and can even force them to a complete standstill.   With deliveries via road, when adverse weather conditions are in effect, drivers are often required to interrupt their journey due to regulatory processes and procedures as well as applying general common sense in taking safety precautions.

With deliveries via air, inclement weather conditions often force airports to suspend all flights for a period of time necessary to ensure that general safety precautions are taken.

Yet, when parcels are delayed due to bad weather conditions it remains the duty of the courier operator in question to accurately determine the nature of the situation causing the delay and advise the customer of the reason for such delay in delivery whilst keeping tabs on the situation at all times and responding hands-on.

Come rain or shine Aerospeed Couriers prides itself in being able to keep tabs on the status of your parcel delivery at all times.
