Possible delivery dates & time effected d by 2012 Olympics

Posted on: Tuesday, July 24, 2012

The final countdown to these events is now truly underway. Parcelforce Worldwide is determined to play its part in making them a great success for everybody.

We are planning to maintain the best possible service throughout the Games period.  The greatest impact is expected from mid July to mid September – particularly in and around central London, where roads will be busier and traffic restrictions will be in place. Other areas of the UK will also be affected, particularly those areas hosting Olympic events.  For more information please visit the Parcelforce Worldwide website

Delivery and Collection Arrangements
Services during the Games period will be affected as follows:

  • We intend to maintain normal delivery guarantees* on express24, express48 and express48large services to almost all of these areas. Exceptions include official Olympic venues (PDF, 30KB), Westfield Stratford City shopping centre, and locations affected by road events.
  • We will prioritise the delivery of timed services (express9, express10, expressAM and expressPM) and these are the best choice for your urgent, time-sensitive items, but we will have to suspend delivery guarantees* on these services to the postcodes affected (PDF, 37KB) on the dates shown.
  • We intend to maintain scheduled collections and next-day collection bookings as normal from almost all of these areas, including from Post Office® branches. Exceptions include official Olympic venues (PDF, 30KB), Westfield Stratford City shopping centre, and locations affected by road events. We will need to suspend same-day collection bookings from the postcodes affected (PDF, 37KB) on the dates shown. If you have an urgent item, you can drop it off at any Post Office® branch and we will collect it that day (subject to our usual latest acceptance times, please check your local Post Office® branch for details).
  • We’re aiming to maintain normal collection times. If this is not possible on a certain day we will contact you. If you have a scheduled collection and are planning to alter your opening hours during the Games period, please tell your account manager.
  • We will introduce a small additional charge of £1 per consignment. This applies to our account customer pricing for delivery to specific London postcodes. Click here to see our additional charge areas (PDF 79KB).
