Evri has issued a warning to anyone sending parcels this Christmas to avoid disappointment.
Christmas is fast approaching and many people will be opting to shop online or send their parcels in time for the special day. But there are some dates you should keep in mind to avoid Christmas disappointment.
The ECHO previously reported that Royal Mail shared its last posting dates for Christmas 2023. And Evri has also done the same.
The UK (domestic) Christmas posting deadlines are:
Tuesday, December 19
Last day for courier collections
Wednesday, December 20
Send a parcel standard delivery from a ParcelShop by 11am
Thursday, December 21
Send a parcel next day delivery from a ParcelShop by 11am
International posting dates differ, depending on where you want to send your item and whether you want priority delivery. Dates start from December 6 for Bulgaria and Malta and run right up to December 19 for Ireland.
The full list of international dates and countries can be found here.
Staff at Evri are predicting that people will begin to shop earlier this year to spread the cost as the cost-of-living crisis continues in the UK, expecting the busiest day to be Monday, November 27.
This year, Evri has invested £46 million to get ready for the busiest time of the year. The business has invested in people, parcels and processes and has recruited over 6,500 extra couriers, almost 300 additional customer service agents to handle the extra parcel volume.
