Royal Mail Announce Latest Recommended Postal Dates For Christmas Delivery 2021

Royal Mail is doing its best to keep eCommerce sellers prepared for Christmas 2021 by announcing early what their recommended latest days for delivery in time for Christmas will be.

In previous years the term ‘For Guaranteed Christmas Delivery’ has been used however this year and understandably so, such language is not present. Whilst in the UK everything feels like it’s business as usual and things are returning to normal, there is still skepticism around the ongoing global shipping challenges as well as the potential for a resurgence of Covid-19.

You can see a full table of the services and the latest recommended postal dates below, but it is worth noting that these dates are subject to change due to the aforementioned challenges that could arise. We will do our best here at eSeller365 to keep you up to date with any changes in service level changes or interruptions announced by Royal Mail.
