Royal Mail is continuing to experience severe service disruption to International export services following a cyber incident. As a result, we are still temporarily unable to despatch items to overseas destinations.
In order to support faster recovery when our service is restored and to prevent a build-up of export items in our network, we are continuing to ask customers not to post international export items until further notice.
The following services for parcels and letters are affected:
Royal Mail International Tracked
Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed
Royal Mail International Standard
Items that have already been despatched may be subject to delays. All export items already received by Royal Mail are being processed through the Royal Mail UK network and held securely for export processing to recommence as soon as our export despatch systems are available again.
For International orders, please refer to their bulletin for latest updates
For the reason stated above any international orders placed will be put on hold until the Royal Mail advise us that we are able to start resending the parcels. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause
We have been advised by Poste Italiane that severe delays are being experienced in processing postal items due to serious IT problems in Italian customs. This is affecting all postal shipments from outside the EU.
Although we are continuing to ship items to Italy at the moment, due to these technical issues being experienced once they arrive, they currently face delays of at least several weeks before being processed by customs and delivered by Poste Italiane. We are in constant dialogue with Poste Italiane, but they have so far been unable to give us a date when these issues will be resolved.
We wish all our customers well during this time of challenge and reaffirm our commitment to serving you with the highest possible standards.
