Supplying customers with goods – even on Sundays
Here’s how it works
Consignments for Sunday delivery are labelled with a special code (“DIRECT” and “SUN”). This service is available for standard parcels of up to 30 kg. Deliveries are made on Sundays or national public holidays between 9 a.m. and 12 noon.
