Shipping in 2020: pickup and deliveries by couriers on festive days
Shipping on Easter or Christmas
Christmas and Easter are the two busiest holidays of the year in the courier companies’ calendar. Delays may occur during this period not only due to the increase in online sales and gifts getting shipped worldwide but also due to weather conditions and the rise in traffic.
Deliveries on Good Friday
Depending on the country, Good Friday may or may not be considered a national holiday. Courier companies won’t deliver or collect packages on this day in countries where Good Friday is considered a holiday.
Shipping during the peak season
Courier services are not overbooked only around Christmas and Easter holidays, but also in other peak seasons. One of them is during the summer vacation when customers frequently ship their suitcases or other belongings abroad, increasing the number of volumes in transit.

Do couriers pick-up or deliver on national or public holidays?
Shipping companies and post offices work around the clock to deliver as many packages as possible before festive days since they don’t collect or deliver any parcels on national or bank holidays themselves. However, due to the increase in the number of shipments, the estimated delivery times may be prolonged during these periods.
