UK Postal Strikes
The UK Royal Mail service is being disrupted due to industrial action. We continue to dispatch parcels every weekday, but these parcels are being delayed in transit due to the industrial action. This means that Special Delivery shipments may not arrive the next day and normal shipping (via recorded delivery) may not arrive within the normal 2-3 days service level. Worse, a backlog of parcels builds up during the industrial action, which means that our parcels may not even get delivered immediately that industrial action ends. To minimise disruption to our customers, we are switching to other courier services on the days leading up to, during, and after the days of Industrial Action. But please be aware that these alternative services have at times been overwhelmed by the volume of parcels going through their network.
