🎁 Last Shipping Dates & Closures for 2021 | South East Asia




This year is forecasted to be the biggest yet!

Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions as well as an increase in volume passing through the networks, we strongly suggest sending as early as possible this year to ensure things arrive before the expected delivery date!

Below, we’ve highlighted the recommended latest shipping dates based off last years averages, current transit times, and capacity forecasting. However, with the current climate, be sure to keep an eye on our Carrier Health Check for the realtime transit times.

Quick tips for fuss-free deliveries.

  • Enable ATL (Authority to leave) where possible so your customer gets it the first time around.
  • Ensure you're packaging is up to scratch to avoid damage and disappointment.
  • For international shipments, ensure you have the correct labeling and required documentation to help get things delivered to your customers without delay.



Carriers will be working outside of normal business days and hours this peak period to keep up with the volume that is forecasted to pass through their networks. However, some closures will remain and are noted below.
