Belgium – Heavy snowfalls

The designated operator of Belgium, bpost, wishes to inform that it has been experiencing significant operational difficulties for several days, owing to adverse weather conditions (heavy snowfall).

Several warnings were issued throughout Belgium on 17 and 18 January 2024, including a red alert on 18 January. In particular, there are prohibitions on the circulation of heavy goods traffic, causing major disruption to the entire postal supply chain.

As a result, delays are to be expected in the transportation, collection and delivery of letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items. 

bpost thanks all partners and customers for their understanding, and will provide an update once the situation has returned to normal.
