Postnet Recommends Shipping Gifts Early This Holiday Season
The global leader in printing and shipping solutions cautions that shipping delays are likely this year
DENVER, Nov. 11, 2021 // PRNewswire // - Lingering disruptions from COVID-19, such as supply chain challenges and staffing shortages, are likely to cause complications for holiday shopping and shipping gifts this year. PostNet, a shipping services provider for over 25 years, has shared tips to help shippers avoid delays and get gifts delivered on time. Their biggest recommendation: Get your holiday shipping done as early as possible.
By offering services via FedEx®, UPS®, DHL®,* and USPS® in the United States (UPS®, Purolator®, and DHL®* in Canada), PostNet centers provide customers with flexibility to help avoid delays and save money.
"The last thing anyone wants is to be worried about packages not arriving in time for the holidays," said Ryan Farris, COO and president for PostNet. "We help customers ship every day, so we understand what needs to be done to help your package reach its destination on time."
In addition to shipping packages early, it is important to understand shipping restrictions to prevent complications. Gifts such as cash, alcohol and flammable liquids are not approved to ship. If in doubt about a particular gift, customers may call their local PostNet to confirm the items are cleared by carriers before shipping them.
Packing a gift properly is also vital when shipping presents for the holidays. Customers should use proper packing materials when boxing up gifts, or they can take them to their nearest PostNet location to have them properly packaged.
Finally, PostNet recommends requesting a signature confirmation when shipping gifts. This will help guarantee packages reach their destination safely and aren't left vulnerable to porch pirates. For added peace of mind, customers can track their packages along the way.
"The holidays can be a hectic time, especially when the pandemic is still creating complications in our lives," said Farris. "With that in mind, we aim to remove as much stress as possible. We're dedicated to providing fast, friendly service to help our customers focus on enjoying their holiday celebrations."
