This year we started December, the month with the most shipments, with an especially long bridge. And not only do we have some holiday dates complicating the operation of the logistics chain during this week, let’s add that the sector is hangover by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. As always, we recommend you start planning your shipments for this Christmas.
Shipments at Christmas always grow, and not just for customers who do not make regular shipments. The general volume in transportation multiplies. Stores require more stocks, online stores start their campaign already at the end of November, people have gifts in companies, schools, groups, shipments for the whole family … Yes, these are the most complex and stressful dates in our sector.
To this exponential growth of the demand for parcel, courier and logistics services, we must add the interference of the holidays that change according to cities, autonomous communities and countries.
That’s why, and as always, we’re going to give you a few tips.

Plan your shipments and utilize urgent services
If we have placed so much emphasis on the complexity of Christmas in transport, it is because of the enormous volume of shipments that arrive. That’s why it’s important that at Christmas time you plan your shipments. And if you need these to be delivered on very specific dates, always use urgent services. Do not skimp on a few euros, keep in mind that the less urgent shipments/economy are always left for the end, the first ones that are delivered are always the urgent and priority services.
And prepared well the packages
Of course, we never stop insisting that in this work we have a shared responsibility. We are the first to want to see your shipment reach the perfect destination. So, this Christmas, we are committed to preparing your shipments so that we, Santa Claus, the Olentzero and the Magi make sure that everything arrives on time at your destination.
