Strikes cause postal service delays in Germany

UKP Worldwide have just notified their customers of postal delays in Germany due to industrial action.

Deutsche Post, has advised the heavy congestion of all inbound, outbound and transit airmail items at Frankfurt Airport due to a recent Lufthansa pilots’ strike.

Delays started before the weekend and it is anticipated that they’ll last until at least the 23rd of December which puts deliveries in time for Christmas at risk. Service delays are expected so be aware that you may have unhappy customers if your airmail parcels were due to be delivered by Deutsche Post and routed through Frankfurt.
