Key Points:

It's common knowledge that December is the busiest time of the year when it comes to shipping items. More specifically, the two weeks before Christmas day. With the lead-up to the most wonderful time of the year, couriers are usually overworked, and rushing around to ensure that items are received on time - and don't forget about the Black Friday rush!

With holiday shoppers shipping lots of gifts to be enjoyed on Christmas Day throughout December, it is extremely important to know the shipping cutoff dates for couriers in December 2022 so you can be prepared for the holiday. You wouldn't want anyone to be left without a gift on Christmas day now, would you? Be prepared, and get your Christmas gifts shipped off at your earliest convenience so your customers will all experience the Christmas cheer.

So, let's get straight into it. Here are the 2022 holiday shipping deadlines and Christmas cut-off dates for couriers in Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, US, and the UK during this peak season. You will find that only the disrupted services have been included for easy reading. Normal service is to be expected on the dates that aren't included.
