Supplementary notes

Source provides the following definitons:
- AM – Delivery before 12:00
- Economy – No assured delivery lead time, no specific delivery day or time-slot
- Evening – Delivery after 17:00
- PM – Delivery after 12:00
- School Run – Delivery between 09:30 and 14:30
- Click and Collect services cannot be specifically identified but are usually included within the next day category
- A number of parcels for Ireland are sent on a next day service. For the reporting purposes we can only apply one classification for that service, so Irish parcels sent on next day services have been classified as ‘next day’  Services suggesting delivery by a specific time (e.g. before 10) are considered in the main to be ‘assured’ services (not necessarily carrying a guarantee of compensation should the delivery be after the specified time)  Saturday and Sunday delivery may or may not be premium delivery options because several carriers are now using these days as standard delivery days with no additional cost. This is especially the case during the Christmas peak when extending to 7 day working increases delivery capacity.
