Since our last communication there have been changes announced by UK overnight carriers to their last collection dates for pre-Christmas deliveries. This takes into account recent weather conditions, the latest weather forecasts, Royal Mail strikes, and the increased pressure on capacity both at sort centres and on vehicles for UK delivery alternatives such as DPD, DX, Evri and DHL.
The latest recommended final collection days below do not however guarantee delivery before Christmas:
LAST COLLECTION DATE
RM Tracked 48
RM Tracked 24
Friday 16th December
Monday 19th December
Wednesday 21st December
Tuesday 20th December
The impact on your UK deliveries may mean that transit times are currently longer and tracking is less accurate due to scans not being undertaken as frequently to avoid further delays to parcels. Mobile phone numbers and email addresses for the parcel recipient from you will be vital to enable your customer to be updated and to enable them to manage their delivery.
