Printable Version Rely On FedEx To Get Your Shipments Delivered On Time Throughout The Holiday Season

As every year since 1973, FedEx teams around the world – more than 290,000 people - will be working together to ensure that all your shipments arrive safely and on time right throughout the busy Christmas and New Year period.

Between the last week of November and Christmas, FedEx forecasts that more than 260 million shipments will move through its worldwide shipping networks. This is a 12% increase for the holiday season over the same period last year when 232 million shipments were processed.

As far as the Europe, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa region (EMEA) is concerned, we expect that the busiest day for shipments going out of the region will be Tuesday, December 20th (an increase of 2.3% over last year), while for shipments coming into the region it will be Monday December 19th (up by 3.5% from 2010).

In order for us to fully meet all your shipping needs, we will be making a few temporary adjustments to our operating schedules and services between Thursday December 22nd 2011, through Saturday January 7th 2012. Please find all details of these changes for this period by clicking here.

To help us provide the best possible service for you and your customers during this very busy season, please ensure that all your packages are ready for collection at least one hour earlier than the normal scheduled collection time.

At the same time we will also be making related amendments to our standard Money Back Guarantee procedures to take account of the special demands of the holiday break. For further information, please click here.
