France – Heavy snowfall

07 February, 2018

La Poste asks us to inform the designated operators of other Union member countries that Paris and the Paris Region (Île-de-France) were hit by a heavy snowstorm on Tuesday, 6 February 2018, as a result of which the French authorities have put into place an emergency plan prohibiting all vehicles weighing over 7.5 tonnes from the entire Île-de-France road network until further notice.

As a result, delays will be experienced in the collection, processing and delivery of domestic and international letter post, parcel post and EMS items throughout France.

La Poste thanks designated operators for their understanding and cooperation and will inform them once the situation has returned to normal.
