How do you calculate the delivery date?

When you use our shipping search engine to compare prices and services, you will see different service options that you can contract. You can also filter by type of delivery (Economy, Express, Standard)

Transit times are detailed in the blue box to the left (24 hrs, 24/48 hrs, 3-4 days, etc.). Please note that except for services with guaranteed delivery , all transit times shown on Packlink are approximate and are based on the estimates of the transportation companies.

During the contracting process you will select the date on which you want the goods to be collected (from Monday to Friday, except holidays). The dates that you will not be able to select will be greyed out, either because it is a weekend or a holiday, or because the transportation company needs more time to manage the collection.

To calculate the date on which your shipment will be delivered, the next working day after the collection is when the first day of transit begins. For example, if you contract a 24-hour service that is collected on a Friday, it will be delivered on Monday.

In the event of a holiday at the point of origin, destination, or any transit point, you must bear in mind that these days will not be taken into account in the delivery date calculation. 

We’ll show you some examples to provide you with a better picture:

  • Transit in 24 hours. Barcelona - Madrid service with collection on 13 May (Friday): The delivery would take place on 16 May (Tuesday), as the 15th is a holiday in the destination town.
  • Transit in 48/72 hours. Barcelona - Madrid service with collection on 13 May (Friday): It would be delivered on 18 May (Thursday) as it’s a holiday on the 15th at the destination.
  • Transit in 3-4 days. Barcelona - Poland service with collection on 2 May (Monday): The delivery would take place on 6 May, since the 5th is a public holiday in Germany (transit point of the goods, since it is a land service).
