OK, it may be November but did you know there are a little over 5 weeks until the big day. That’s just 37 sleeps meaning there’s not a massive amount of time left for shopping or despatching those presents.
You’ve still got a bit of time to think about sending parcels closer to home, but if you have friends and family abroad it may be time to start deciding how you will get their presents there on time, especially if you want to catch the cheaper distribution routes.
DHL offer some fantastic parcel products for sending international parcels.
Posting a parcel to Europe?
If you’re posting to Europe you can access DHL’s Euro Plus right up until Tuesday 13th December.
As parcels are transported by road this is cheaper option than by air delivery. However it does have a longer delivery window – somewhere between 2-5 working days.
Posting a parcel to the rest of the world?
DHL by Air enables you to send parcels to just about every destination in the world. The delivery specification is 1-2 working days within Europe and 2-4 working days everywhere else.
The last posting date to access this service is also Tuesday 13th December.
If you want a hassle free way to send your international Christmas parcels use a courier. They’re very flexible! Either save up all your parcels and arrange one collection, or if you want to clear some space book ad hoc collections as and when you need them. What’s more with a courier you have the added advantage of electronic tracking meaning you can be sure your gifts have arrived where they should be.
Happy Ch… Actually it is a bit early to be saying that just yet!
