At Pedal & Post we'll be working to support our local communities in this uncertain time and keep our deliveries going as best we can whilst protecting our employees, customers, clients and the general public. You can read our previous post around our measures for the Coronavirus below
As of today the government has launched restrictions with advice for the country for the coming three weeks and potentially longer depending on future circumstances. Pedal & Post falls under food delivery/distribution and freight distribution whilst we provide essential medical deliveries as well. This means we will continue to operate under the "Key worker" status and continue to deliver across Oxford as best we can
All clients Pedal & Post works with have been emailed this evening as we look to adapt to this scenario as some of the local business's we work with will be deemed as none essential at this time and be forced to close their doors until circumstances improve. This will require us to shift our team of couriers around and move them to other routes as we are continuing to provide work and retain the essential skills our team has that truly make Pedal & Post what it is today.
We want to say thank you for the HUGE amount of support we have received over the last few weeks and kind words from people we have delivered too, people in the street (although there will be less of this now) and even people driving enquiring to what we're delivering and loving the cargo bikes and trikes we use, its all been incredible and it truly makes it all worthwhile. We have begun to work with some fantastic new clients including Ten Mile Menu, Bonners in the covered market, Team Tea and even Oxford city council to name a few helping support them with deliveries
We feel a responsibility to ensure we maintain a regular delivery service to you as customers regardless of how difficult any potential restrictions could make it, as we feel what we do is an essential service to the community and hopefully implementing larger changes with these announcements we can still achieve this
