As more and more people begin to work from home these days, the demand for online shopping and deliveries is steadily increasing. Various shops and companies are offering their customers the opportunity to have products delivered directly to their doorstep. In compliance with government safety measures, company employees are obliged to wear protective masks and gloves when doing home delivery. We’ve provided a handy list of different deliveries that you may find useful.
