Christmas delivery deadlines 2021

Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year - especially for carriers and shipping companies who need to make sure your customers get a Christmas sparkle in their eyes when they can pack up their Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. Each carrier has some recommended deadlines for pick-up/drop-off shipments, so that the Christmas presents can arrive before 24 December.

You can see the Christmas deadlines for carriers domestically in:

Christmas delivery deadlines in Norway

Through Shipmondo, you can ship domestically in Norway with PostNord and Bring.

Bring Christmas delivery times

Bring Parcel will follow their normal delivery time (1-2 days), but it may take longer because of the high season. They therefore recommend a deadline between 17 and 22 December.

For Business parcels and Home Delivery parcels, you must be aware of an additional day on top of the normal delivery times from 22 November. Pick-up Parcel is also one day longer than normal delivery times from 22 November to 31 December.

The deadline for Mailbox parcels is 20 December.

Groupage and part loads from, for example, northern Norway to southern Norway need to be shipped before 17 December to ensure delivery before Christmas Eve.

If you ship larger and heavier goods with Bring Home Delivery, they must be received at the terminal by the deadline of 15 December.

OBS: Bring reports about delays in some areas of Norway due to the weather situation. You can stay updated on their website.

PostNord Christmas delivery times

PostNord recommends that you send your Christmas packages no later than 14 December before 16:00 (4 PM), so they can make sure that they arrive before Christmas.

They distribute packages up to and including little Christmas Eve, December 23, but due to extra activity, there may be a little longer delivery time.
