Colombia – Update on measures to minimize the spread of COVID-19

16 maggio, 2020

The designated operator of Colombia, Servicios Postales Nacionales S.A. 4-72, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, through Decree 637 of 6 May 2020, the Colombian government extended mandatory preventative isolation until midnight of 25 May 2020. As an essential service, however, the postal service is currently exempt from restrictions on movement, although this could change in the future.

In addition, Servicios Postales Nacionales S.A. 4-72 wishes to inform other other Union member countries and their designated operators that:

  1. The previously communicated measures affecting operations will remain in place, and will continue to cause significant delays to all inbound and outbound international letter-post, parcel- post and EMS items. Measures on operational and administrative teleworking and flexible working hours will also remain in place;
  2. Owing to the continuation of force majeure, the cancellation of international flights and the internal measures taken by countries and their designated operators, Servicios Postales Nacionales S.A. 4-72 is currently unable to send letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items to various member countries. For more information, please go to www.4-72.com.co/content/spn-4-72-coronavirus.

Servicios Postales Nacionales S.A. 4-72 will continue to provide its services under the restrictions caused by this global crisis and with due consideration of the measures necessary to protect its employees and customers.

Servicios Postales Nacionales S.A. 4-72 thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
