Be Prepared: 2018 Holiday Shipping Deadlines

Author: Chrissie Nelms, Customer Support Manager, Rush Order

The holidays are upon us and shipping deadlines are back in focus. You’ve worked hard all year to develop, launch and sell your products into the market.  To help delight your customers and finish the year strong, we created a nearly comprehensive list of global shipping deadlines to ensure delivery before Christmas.Holiday shipping deadlines

This table categorized by Rush Order warehouse location, as well as shipping carrier and service level. We recommend providing clear guidance to customers on your website using the following deadlines for the particular shipping service levels you offer.

Keep in mind that US ground shipping deadlines can be pushed a little further out if you leverage Rush Order’s locations on both coasts. For questions about bi-coastal shipping deadlines, as well as holiday shipping deadlines from our Shanghai or Tokyo warehouses, please contact your Rush Order Project Manager or through our general inbox here.

Rush Order wishes you a happy and successful holiday season!!!
