Ongoing COVID-19 restrictions across the globe, reduced air and road freight capacity, higher than usual volumes and winter conditions – will impact the international postal networks. Please also remember that local duties and taxes may be applied to parcels based on content value and commodity code – which for EU destinations in particular is a new post-Brexit reality.

With a higher than usual volume of gifts and non-document items across the networks through the festive period, the capacity of local customs clearance facilities will be impacted causing further potential delays.
