As you can imagine, the run up to Christmas is peak time for parcel delivery couriers, in fact Google sees around 50% more searches for the term ‘parcel delivery’ in December. As a business we cope with extra demand by employing more staff to work in our sortation hub and more drivers, to ensure we maintain our ‘Great’ Trust Pilot score. However, our employees and drivers do have some time off to enjoy the festive season, so please review the below Christmas schedule and take note of holidays that could impact delivery times of your parcels containing gifts for others, gifts for yourself or day to day parcels for your customers.
