The last US postage dates for Christmas 2017

By Dan Wilson November 21, 2017 - 7:17 am

It is a well worn Tamebay tradition that we broadcast the latest despatch dates for sending parcels using UK shipping companies every year in the run up to Christmas, especially Royal Mail. So it seems entirely appropriate to also publish the last US postage dates too.

This infographic from Shipstation notes the last US postage dates for three major carriers stateside, namely USPS, UPS and Fedex.

Us postage dates

The most challenging aspect of Christmas this year from an ecommerce and shipping perspective is that it lands on a Monday so the more traditional carriers won’t be delivering on the Sunday, unless with a premium service, and some won’t deliver on a Saturday either. That pushes the last despatch dates back to the 20th and 21st.

How late will you continue to despatch before the 25th?
