‘Can I get my mail?’ Royal Mail is warning that there will be even more delays today, with 56 postcodes affected.
Customers have been warned by ROYAL MAIL about service delays.
Some people in the United Kingdom have been waiting for their letters for weeks.
Due to Covid-related issues, such as staff shortages, Royal Mail has been experiencing delays over the last few months.
The company updated customers today, January 15, on which postcodes in the country are still experiencing delays.
Royal Mail has stated that it is doing its best to deliver parcels throughout the United Kingdom, but late deliveries are currently affecting several areas of the country.
The company’s website has been updated to keep customers informed about the status of their service.
“Weekend delivery and collection services are expected to begin on Saturday, January 15, 2022,” it said, explaining how weekend deliveries differ from weekday deliveries.
“On Sunday, January 16th, 2022, there will be no deliveries or collections (except for Covid-19 test kits from Priority Postboxes).”
“Most of our Customer Service Points are open both Saturday and Sunday for you to pick up urgent items for which we’ve left a ‘Something for you’ card – please see royalmail.comservices-near-you for their opening hours.”
Following that, Royal Mail provided a list of postcodes where letters and parcels were delayed today.
On the list, there were 56 items.
“Deliveries are operating normally across most of the country today,” the company stated.
“We aim to deliver six days a week to all of the addresses for which we have mail.”
“This may be temporarily unavailable in a small number of local offices due to local issues such as Covid-related self-isolation, high levels of sick leave, resourcing, or other local factors.”
“In those cases, we’ll rotate deliveries to keep individual customers from experiencing delays.”
“We also provide targeted support to those offices in order to address their issues and return our service to the high standard our customers expect.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience,” the company said.
Over the last 24 hours, British citizens have taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction with Royal Mail’s service.
Many people appear to be irritated by the delays.
“@RoyalMail I was sent an item last Saturday that has still not arrived,” Rebecca Whitfield tweeted.
‘Trackable’ was used to send this message.
By this time, it should have arrived.
“Does the Hackney area have any postal delays?”
“Anyone in Cardiff and Stockton On Tees know if there are any postal delays? Two customers still,” tweeted Hoodoo Annie.
