Early Years Vacancies

Hover Boards and Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deliveries via BFPO

BFPO has received the following advice from Parcelforce regarding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Hoverboards:

Samsung Galaxy Note 7:
Following reports of the product recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the airline industry has issued advice to airlines addressing concerns around the faulty device batteries creating fire hazards on board aircraft. As a result, we are unable to accept these devices on any of our UK or international services until further notice. BFPO customers are advised that any received at BFPO London for transportation by air cargo will be returned to sender.

Parcelforce Worldwide and BFPO are no longer able to carry self-balancing scooters (also known as Hoverboards). This is due to the Hoverboards being powered primarily by lithium batteries and the difficulty in ascertaining the Watt hour rating and whether they are safely deactivated for transport. BFPO customers are advised that any received at BFPO London for transportation by any route surface or air will be returned to sender.
