Upcoming deadlines for international mailing

December 5, 2010 Uncategorized

If you’re shipping to a member of the armed services with an APO/FPO address, time is running out to get your packages mailed for arrival before Dec.25.

Here are some critical upcoming deadlines for international mailing:

  • Friday, Dec. 10 – Last day for APO/FPO priority mail
  • Monday, Dec. 13 – Last day for Priority mail to most Canada locations (excluding BC) and Europe
  • Wednesday, Dec. 15 – Last day for domestic Parcel Post
  • Thursday, Dec. 16 – Last day for UPS ground shipments to the East Coast
  • Saturdat, Dec. 18 – Last day for Priority mail for domestic U.S.

Of course, none of these deadlines take into account unexpected snow, sleet, fog and ice which may delay flights and trains, tie up traffic and cause shipment delays. For guaranteed arrival by Christmas, ship a few days before your absolute deadline day – and of course, always ship with Pak Mail for stress-free, lines-free shipping!
