PackageHopper Explains: Weekend Deliveries
Regarding international deliveries, PackageHopper is one of the best tools for finding the best courier services. Thanks to our partnerships with reliable couriers such as DHL and FedEx, we can offer PackageHopper customers the best prices and delivery time frames to ship their items to international locations.
While these major courier companies operate globally, knowing whether they offer weekend deliveries can be confusing. While PackageHopper cannot provide guaranteed delivery dates, it’s always good to know if your courier option delivers on the weekends. This blog will examine how each provider handles weekend deliveries for international recipients.
Does DHL Deliver During the Weekends?
DHL is known for its efficient and reliable delivery services worldwide. The company does offer Saturday and Sunday deliveries for international recipients in select countries. However, the availability of weekend deliveries varies based on the destination country and the type of service you choose.
For example, if you opt for DHL Express, available in most countries, you can expect regular delivery on Saturdays and Sundays in some destinations.
Does FedEx Deliver During the Weekend?
FedEx is another popular courier company that offers global shipping services. Unlike DHL, FedEx does not offer regular weekend deliveries for international shipments. They may, however, deliver on the weekend for urgent shipments through its FedEx Priority Service.
If you select the FedEx Priority Service, you can expect delivery on Saturdays in some countries where it is considered a regular business day.
Does USPS Deliver During the Weekends?
The United States Postal Service, USPS, is the primary postal service provider in the United States. It also offers international shipping services to over 190 countries. Unlike DHL and FedEx, USPS does not offer regular weekend deliveries for international shipments.
However, USPS does offer International Priority, which provides weekend delivery to select destinations that consider Saturday a regular business day.
Does Australia Post Deliver During the Weekend?
Australia Post is a postal mail service department owned and operated by the Australian government and provides mailing and shipping services throughout Australia and New Zealand. Unfortunately, Australia Post, a federally operated entity, does not deliver on Saturdays and Sundays. Recipients who have access to a 24/7 parcel locker and hold their items at a post office can access Australia Post facilities on Saturdays.
