Service Update Bulletin 2nd November


International Services

Finland: Update 12th November

The Finnish Postal workers union (PAU) has announced a strike, which takes place from the 19th to the 26th of November. Please expect delays in the processing and delivery of your items through the whole network during that period. This information applies to both letter and parcel mail. Furthermore, both inbound and outbound operations are affected.

Greece: Update 12th November

The Confederation of the Greek workers and the Association of the Civil Servants announced a 24-hour strike. These actions will affect both international and domestic mail collection and delivery.

The latest information we have concerning the air traffic controllers, is that their union decided not to participate in this strike, at least for Athens International Airport, the entry point for international dispatches.

Peru: Update 12th November

There will be a delay in the processing of international mail due to a strike taking place. This situation will affect delivery performance for EMS items, parcels and mail items in general.

Malaysia: Update 12th November

Postal operations are suffering disruption in three coast states (Pahang, Kelantan and Terengganu). This is due to the heavy rain near Bukit, Tinggi and Pahang on 11th November. The highways linking these areas are inaccessible to traffic, preventing transport of EMS, letter-post and parcel-post items.

Lufthansa: Update 13th November

Since 10th November Lufthansa have been experiencing high levels of disruption with flights affecting the postal service. On 11th November 80% of LH flights were cancelled. Austrian Airlines and Swiss Airlines were used to forward mail. As the most important European destinations are delivered by truck there were no major backlogs in France but for some destinations, delays were expected.

On 12th November the biggest part of the backlog was shipped by road and for some intercontinental destinations Austrian Airlines flights were planned.

From 14th November, Lufthansa expect flight operations (continental & intercontinental flights) to be back to normal of more than 95% of flights operating as per schedule. Regarding backlogs, in Frankfurt volumes of backlog are expected to have cleared until the end of the weekend.

Services to France

Expect a delay for a portion of mail. This is due to an industrial action at the Nanterre distribution centre (92000).

Expect a day’s delay for some letters from Department 60 to the entire territory. This is due to a technical problem in the Creil PIC sorting centre.

UK Services 

Air, Road and Rail

Some mail due for delivery on Friday would have been delayed. This was due to high winds at Sumburgh delaying the flight from Aberdeen-Sumburgh (Shetland Isles). The same flight was delayed again on Saturday due to the pilot being ill and a replacement had to be found. This resulted in the mail arriving too late for delivery on Saturday and will be delivered today.

A small amount of mail posted in parts of the UK for delivery in the SA postcode area on Saturday may have been delayed. This is due to the late departure of a vehicle from the National Distribution Centre (NDC) in Daventry to Swansea Mail Centre on Friday night.

A small amount of mail due for delivery in parts of the North West, North East and the NG and DE postcode areas is likely to have been delayed. This is due to a vehicle from Medway Mail Centre in Kent arriving late at the NDC on Friday night. This also had an effect on the service leaving NDC for Croydon Mail Centre. As a result of this a small amount of mail due for delivery in the BR, CR, SE and SM postcode areas on Saturday may have been delayed.

Some mail posted in parts of the UK due for delivery in parts of Northern Ireland and Scotland is likely to arrive later than planned. This is due to capacity issues on the scheduled service from the National Distribution Centre to East Midlands Airport on Friday night.

A small amount of mail posted in parts of South and West Yorkshire for delivery in parts of Scotland is likely to arrive later than planned. This is due to capacity issues at the Yorkshire Distribution Centre on Saturday night, resulting in some mail unable to travel on the scheduled outbound services.

Some parts of Cumbria were affected by the recent heavy rainfall over the weekend and delivery will be today as normal where access is possible and safe.

Some mail due for delivery on Saturday in the CV, LE, MK and NN postcode areas may arrive later than planned. This is due to high volumes of mail arriving at the South Midlands Mail Centre meant that not all mail was processed to schedule on Friday night.

Some mail due for delivery on Saturday in the GU, KT, SW and TW postcode areas may arrive later than expected. This is due to a technical issue at the Jubilee Mail Centre so not all mail could be processed to schedule on Friday night.

The rest of the UK network operated well over the weekend.
