UK parcel firms such as Royal Mail, DHL, Evri and DPD are operating at different times over the Easter holiday which could affect  when you receive your parcels

If you’re wondering whether your parcel will be at your front door over the four-day bank holiday weekend, it all depends on the delivery company in charge of your items. Parcel firms such as DHL, Evri, DPD and Royal Mail, will operate at different times or will be shut during Good Friday and Easter Monday, meaning you could receive your packages at a later time than expected.

Delivery times and dates will vary due to the public holiday. Like many supermarkets and retailers across the country, workers will be given the day off or a shorter shift during the busy period.
