  1. Any freight collected between the Christmas and New Year will be delivered as booked, please note that none of the 3 Bank Holidays counts as a transit day for any shipment.
  2. We strongly recommend checking that premises are open and able to accept freight for deliveries during this period. If the premises are closed there will be a charge for re-delivery.
  3. Any freight collected before Christmas that should not be delivered until the 4th January must state this in the delivery instructions.  For this time period only we will only charge economy rates for specific day bookings.
  4. On Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th December 2021 the following adjustments will be made:
    • Cut off for booking freight moved forward to 1000hrs.
    • Freight must be available for collection from 1200hrs.
  5. The Hazchem Network will be closed between Christmas and New Year with the last trunking day Wednesday 22nd December 2021.  Any hazardous freight requirements must be agreed in writing prior to booking. All such consignments will be rated and charged independently from any previously issued tariffs and pricing as they will be shipped on dedicated vehicles.
  6. Some delivery areas, e.g. the Highlands and Islands or the Republic and Northern Ireland that require ferry crossings to make delivery will be affected during the festive period. Please contact our Sales Team if you require distribution to these areas.

If your company has any requirements for services beyond those covered above, please let our team know.
