The holiday season is always busy for Royal Mail. However, the pandemic is making the company’s job even more difficult as it grapples with staff shortages and other Covid-related issues.
Today, Royal Mail warned Britons of more delays across the country.
The company explained that it operates an air, rail and road network to move letters and parcels between its distribution centers, mail processing centers and delivery offices across the UK.
Although its air, rail and road networks have performed as expected for the past 24 hours, there were issues yesterday, January 7, with some of the company’s mail centers.
The four centers affected are listed below.

‘Exeter Mail Center: Some mail posted to other parts of the UK yesterday is due for delivery today to addresses in the EX and TQ postcode areas.
‘Nottingham Mail Center: Some mail posted to other parts of the UK yesterday is due for delivery today to addresses in the DE and NG postcode areas.
‘Warrington Mail Center: Certain mail posted to other parts of the UK yesterday is due for delivery today to addresses in the CW, L, WA and WN postcode areas. “
DO NOT MISS :
Deliveries are handled a little differently on weekends.
Royal Mail explained: ‘The weekend delivery and collection services are scheduled to take place on Saturday 8 January 2022.
“There are no deliveries or collections on Sunday January 9, 2022 (except COVID-19 test kits for priority mailboxes).
“Most of our customer service points are open on Saturdays and Sundays for you to collect urgent items for which we have left a ‘Something for You’ card – please visit royalmail.com/services-near-you for their opening hours. “
Brits used social media again today to complain about the poor postal service in their area.
User Liz Harwood said, “Mail deliveries have been appalling in SE24 for quite some time. @RoyalMail really needs to fix this problem. It is an essential service company and the shipping costs are expensive. How many hospital appointments, etc. were missed due to postal delays? “
Simon Lewis wrote: “The list posted by @RoyalMail never includes my postcode as the one with long delivery delays. Yet even the Posts said deliveries were not taking place. RM’s lack of transparency is scandalous. The mail posted on December 15th has still not arrived.
Dr Donald-MacCallum commented: “@RoyalMail looks like another call at least an hour to go because RM continues to NOT deliver! Months of long delays for packages and no regular mail for weeks. What is going on?”
