One post says travel barriers affect last-minute letters and parcels to and from Ireland

One post reported that the disruption to international distribution lines through the UK would significantly affect last-minute postings from Ireland to the UK and Europe.

Its statement came on the last day of posting Christmas cards and parcels within Ireland to ensure Christmas delivery.

One post said that all e-commerce parcels received by big online retailers are on track and will be delivered to customers by Christmas Eve.

All international cards and small parcels received in Ireland are scheduled for December 24 according to the suggested posting dates.

However, the decision taken yesterday by several countries, including Ireland, to suspend inbound flights from the UK to prevent the spread of the virus mutation through London and the southeastern part of England may be affected at the last minute abroad.

According to a post, the Kovid-19 restrictions had already severely affected the cargo capacity of the aircraft. As a result, incoming and outgoing international letters and parcels are shipped via Great Britain.

This was explained by the significant delays and long tailbags that hundreds of container trucks were waiting for the cargo while the cargo was moving.

Garrett Bridgeman, Managing Director of Mail and Parcels, said in a post: “We will do everything in our power to maintain the flow of incoming and outgoing international mail.

“However, current issues affecting transportation are beyond the control of one post, as more European countries, including Belgium, Sweden and Germany – one of our largest incoming mailers – have suspended all voyages to Great Britain.

“We have been able to avoid delays and interruptions experienced in other countries as a result of Kovid restrictions and unprecedented volumes through planning and early advice on deadline posting dates.”

The company added that preparatory work has been put forward before the end of the Brexit transition period and that these changes will help customers and businesses from the beginning of 2021.
