Permanent Collections

Since most companies are reducing their operating hours during the holidays, all Priority and Standard Parcel permanent collections will be temporarily suspended from 27 December 2023 to 7 January 2024

Permanent collections will resume on Monday, 8 January 2024.

Permanent Authority to Leave

To ensure that your freight will not be left unattended until your business reopens, please ensure your holiday opening and closing hours are displayed clearly at your delivery point if you have a permanent “Authority to Leave.”

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this season. If you have any special requirements or specific shipping needs during this period, please do not hesitate to reach out to our customer support team in advance.
