Jersey Post are preparing for their busiest time of year, with a 50% rise in parcel traffic predicted over the next two months.

The Managing Director is urging islanders to post sooner rather than later to avoid delays.

Given the large volumes of traffic we’ve experienced already this year, we anticipate this Christmas being one of the busiest to date. Christmas is always a demanding time for everyone at Jersey Post but we’re all set with processes in place to deal with the increase in volumes as the trend for online shopping and deals around Black Friday and Cyber Monday become ever more popular.

Niall McClure, Managing Director for Jersey Post
