Severe weather and customs clearance cause disruption to our parcel delivery operation in parts of Europe

(Issued July 14th 2021)

Severe weather and customs clearance cause disruption to our parcel delivery operation in parts of Europe

Severe flooding in Western Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg is impacting our delivery operation in these areas.

 

Please be aware that some parcels due for delivery on Thursday and Friday in the countries listed above may incur a delay.

 

Since the launch of the Import One Stop Shop (IOSS) on 1 July, our services to the majority of mainland European countries are operating as normal. However, the French customs clearance system was unavailable from Wednesday for 24 hours and any parcels due for delivery in France

are likely to be delayed by 24 – 48 hours on our European Parcel Service.

 

Germany has also been experiencing issues with their local customs clearance processes, but this has now been resolved and any parcels

that have been delayed will be delivered by the beginning of next week.

Delays to parcels bound for the Republic of Ireland and EU destinations today via EPS Service

(Issued June 23rd 2021)

Due to the failure of the HMRC export system, CHIEF, last night we were unable to send parcels bound for the Republic of Ireland

and a number of destinations within the EU.

Although we have sorted and processed these parcels the CHIEF failure means that some of our trailers have been unable to depart from our Hubs for the Republic of Ireland and the EU, consequently some parcels bound for these destinations may incur a 24-hour delay.

We can advise that the CHIEF system is now restored and we do not expect any further delays.

If we have your customers’ contact details we will notify them of the delay.
