Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Updates

Last updated: 21/10/2020

With the recent announcement of moving to stage 5, Polar Ice as a critical supplier to frontline industries will continue to remain open.

IMPORTANT: DPD Couriers are now experiencing a significant increase in the volume of parcels. As a result, delivery may be later in the evening and so we advise customers to schedule delivery for the day prior to use. It’s important to factor in the expected amount of dry ice sublimation when having dry ice delivered a day early.


Polar Ice continue to operate and support critical supply chains. We have implemented a number of precautionary measures at our premises to protect the safety, health, and welfare of our employees, customers, and contractors in light of heightened risk of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) nationally.
  • Restricted access to our main premises and depots for non-Polar Ice personnel. Customers collecting dry ice are asked to ring at least 30 minutes in advance and we will have the order ready for collection outside.
  • Reduced the number of front-line staff on-site at any one time and facilitated remote working for all other staff.
  • Put enhanced sanitising procedures in place on all work-surfaces and company vehicles.
  • Continued to update our employees on Covid-19.
  • Established and tested our ICT systems to ensure that it’s business as usual for all customers.

We are continuing production and have implemented contingency plans to ensure minimal impact to our supply chain and our customers. We are monitoring events closely and we are acting accordingly based on the latest information available from public health officials. Our ultimate concern is the health of our employees and customers.
