2021 Postal Holiday Calendar

A list of 2021 holidays and which postage providers do not provide service on those days.

The table below shows all holidays for 2021 and which carriers do not provide services on those days (either pickup or delivery).

You can still create a label on any of these dates and ShipStation will automatically push the Ship Date to the next possible shipping day. This ensures that your reporting and End of Day forms are accurate.

Regional Holidays

ShipStation will only automatically push the Ship Date for National Public Holidays. We have listed some of the regional holidays in this list for your reference. Regional holidays are marked with a '*'. For regional holidays carriers may not have any delivery services or limited services. Visit the carrier's website for details about service changes for these dates.
