Bring Christmas delivery times
Bring expects large parcel volumes for Christmas. Therefore, they have added extra production days and extended the delivery time for some of their services.
Most parcels sent in Norway are delivered within 1-3 days, but they advise you to send them a little earlier just before Christmas. The deadlines vary according to service and destination but they expect to deliver your packages as usual before mid-December.
- Deadline between 19 and 21 December. The delivery deadline before Christmas depends on the zip code. See more here.
- Expect +1 day for the delivery time during the period 21 November 2022 to 1 January 2023.
- Home Deliveries are extended to 15-22 from 14 November 2022.
Bring has extended their parcel box network, so, by the end of the year, they will have parcel boxes in more than 1,600 locations around Norway.
