The temporary closure of the airport in Bari from 15th January – 22nd January for maintenance work is likely to have resulted in delays to mail services in the area.
Italy’s Post has confirmed they’ve been experiencing problems with sorting equipment used to process inbound tracked and registered items from outside the European Union since 9th December. This has caused a temporary disruption to operations and delivery of mail. This could affect operations for a few days.
Maintenance work continues this week at a local airport causing mail delays to Sardinia. There will be two closures this week, firstly on the night of Monday 5th August and secondly on the night of Thursday 8th August.
The Cagliari Sorting Centre has now resumed normal operations after last week’s fire.
Due to a fire which occurred during the night in the servicing area of the sorting centre in Cagliari, the building is temporarily closed until site checks by the fire brigade and police are completed.
Operations will resume as soon as the all-clear is given but as a result, delivery delays can be expected for mail services in the Cagliari region, including Sardinia, until normal operation resumes. Postcode affected areas are: 09100, 09121, 09122, 09123, 09124, 09125, 09126, 09127, 09128, 09129, 09131 and 09134.
Strike action reported on the 24th July has continued through the weekend and is ongoing. Unfortunately, this means severe delivery delays will be experienced in Italy.
