Parcel radar

More insight into delivery times and delays in 2021

In 2021 we gave the Package Radar a new look. You can see per province what the delays are per week and per day, from November 1 to December 24.

We will add more information to the Package Radar towards the end of 2022. For now, below you will find an overview of the delays from weeks 44 to 51. In addition, you will also find the daily delays from November 1 to December 24.

The crowds at carriers will not decrease this year. They experience a peak period throughout the year, where a few extra steps are added during the holiday period at the end of the year. How do you anticipate that?  Make an appointment with one of our experts, who will give you the appropriate advice.

Delays per day in weeks 44 through 51

In the video below you can see the delays in percentages by region from Monday 1 November to Friday 24 December. Sundays are not shown, as no deliveries are made then.

No rights can be derived from these data.

What is immediately noticeable is that almost all Mondays are very dark. This can be explained by the lower number of parcels sent compared to the other days of the week. Carriers do not deliver on Sundays when it comes to B2C deliveries, and not on Saturdays and Sundays when it comes to B2B shipments. However, shipments are processed in the sorting and distribution centers. This gives the opportunity to “catch up” on any delayed packages from the previous week over the weekend. A large part of this are the delayed packages that we see on Mondays.
