2015 Holiday Shipments

Christmas Eve/Christmas Day

The word from UPS is that they are only guaranteeing Next-Day Air shipments for “on time” delivery; So don’t wait until the last minute if you need it before Christmas because it sounds like last minute this year is today and tomorrow for ground shipments! Also, UPS will be making normal deliveries of ground, air, and international on Christmas Eve and ONLY picking up Scheduled Air & International on Christmas Eve, December 24th, for deliveries to be made on Monday, December 28. There will be no pickup of regular ground UPS shipments on Christmas Eve and obviously, UPS is closed on Christmas Day.

Freight Carriers such as Saia and R&L will not pick up or deliver on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. They are completely closed on both days. Which means that freight picked up on Wednesday, Dec 23 will be delivered at the earliest on Monday, December 28.

The window to ship product with delivery occuring prior to Christmas is slipping by. Please review our Delivery Calendar as the last two weeks of this month have been significantly modified to accomodate the way the holiday’s fall this year.

New Years Eve/New Years Day

UPS is only picking up and delivering Next-Day Air & International on New Years Eve. They are closed New Years Day. Ground packages that are picked up Wednesday, Dec 30 will be delivered on Monday, January 4.

Freight Carriers will run delivery’s on New Years Eve and make pick ups that will be delivered at the earliest on Monday, January 4. They will be closed on New Years Day.
