Last European Dispatch Dates Before Christmas 2020

With December upon us, we have pulled together our last dispatch dates before Christmas to help avoid any disruptions over the festive period. To guarantee delivery before Christmas, we ask customers to place their orders before the dates listed below.

Groupage Service to ensure delivery before Christmas (trailer deliveries)

UK – Friday 18th December
Western Europe (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Benelux, Switzerland) – Tuesday 15th December (last departure 18th December, but delivery cannot be assured before Christmas)
Central Europe (Czech, Poland) – Tuesday 15th December – (last departure 18th December, but delivery cannot be assured before Christmas)
Eastern Europe (Slovenia, Croatia) – Friday 11th December
Southern Europe (Greece, Italy, Bulgaria, Portugal, Spain) – Friday 11th December
Ireland – Monday 21st December

Note on Brexit
Unfortunately Brexit may impact capacity availability the nearer we get to the last dispatch days – bearing this in mind it would make sense to advise our customers the earlier in December we can arrange dispatch of orders the better to ensure we avoid any space issues.
NB. Irish trailers will start up again on the 4th/5th January, but we need to remember that the transition period will have ended on 31/12/20, so Brexit will become a reality at this point with delays in transit being more than likely.

Courier Service to ensure delivery before Christmas

UK – Friday 18th December
Western Europe – Monday 21st December
Central Europe – Friday 18th December
Eastern Europe – Tuesday 15th December
Southern Europe – Tuesday 15th December
Channel Island – Thursday 17th December
Ireland – Tuesday 22nd December (unless out of area)
NB. The last courier collections will take place on the 23rd December am, but we cannot be certain that delivery will take place between the 27th and 31st December, so some consignments may end up being delivered in the first week of the New Year (i.e. from the 4nd January onwards).
