Delivery by Christmas Day? Go Guaranteed!
'Tis the season of good cheer, and to ensure that you
stand a good chance of having your Christmas day message
or gift being delivered before the special day, post it
before it's really too late.
Note that the postal service is used to getting this 'mad
rush', and has put plans in place to accommodate the expected
surge in mail, but unless you send it by a time-guaranteed
mail service it is possible that it may not reach in time.
Want to ensure that it reaches? Then go with the expedited
mail services that provide a delivery deadline: guaranteed!
Locally: use Zip Mail or Zip Courier. For overseas items,
send via DHL, our corporate partner.
Express Mail Service (EMS), which is offered through a
bilateral agreement with other postal administrations,
does not offer a time-guarantee for delivery but is expected
to reach addresses in the USA , Canada and the United Kingdom
within a week. You can track the EMS item on the Internet
yourself at www.jamaicapost.gov.jm !

About Zip Mail: (Post Office to Post Office)
Zip Mail gets your letters
and small packets to a major post office by the next business
day. You present the item at a major post office before
the 'cut-off' time, and it's
sent to the destination post office before the end of the
next business day.
About Zip Courier: Business place or home to most addresses
within the KMR
Zip Courier allows customers to have their
letters and small packets picked up from a home or business
and delivered to most locations within the Kingston Metropolitan
