Boxing Day is considered a national holiday in the UK and several European countries. As a general rule, both postal and courier services do not perform parcel collection or deliveries on Boxing Day in such locations. Therefore, we recommend scheduling your deliveries in advance during the holiday season to avoid any inconvenience. Check the table below to see which couriers perform deliveries on Boxing Day.
Post offices opening days are usually in accordance with the local or national holidays of each area. In the United States, the post offices are generally open on Boxing Day since this is considered a regular working day, but, in the UK & Ireland, the post office is closed on Boxing Day due to the national holiday (in Ireland known as St Stephen’s Day). In general, Canada and Australia Post do not perform post or parcel deliveries on Boxing Day since this holiday is celebrated in most states/provinces.
Boxing Day, celebrated on the 26th of December, falls on a Sunday in 2021. As compensation, both Christmas and Boxing Day holidays are celebrated in lieu of the following working days. Therefore, if you want to know which couriers perform Boxing Day deliveries, you need to check their schedule not only for the 26th but also for the 28th of December.
