You want to make sure that all packages arrive at your customers before Christmas. During the busy pre-Christmas period carriers worldwide are handling the highest volumes of the year. All carriers still expect even higher volumes due to COVID-19. To avoid complaints, make sure to communicate realistic ordering deadlines to your customers.

Christmas ordering deadlines are before 16:00 (Amsterdam time/CET).
