Royal Mail Seasonal Posting Dates & Strike Action

With the festive season approaching, it’s time to start planning! 

We always promote transparency, therefore, to minimise customer queries it’s great to offer an estimation of the last shipping dates. These are the final dates that items can be posted and will likely arrive in time for the big day. In addition to informing your eCommerce clients, they enable you as retailers to plan accordingly.

Below are the last posting dates to avoid any disruptions from RoyalMail to help this peak go smoother.

Please note that these dates are estimations and are subject to change. With a lot of factors affecting delivery, we can only offer these as recommendations. If you are a client of ours, we can provide a more accurate list of dates specific to your items and destinations.
