A SURGE in internet shopping is expected to lead to a huge rise in the amount of parcels and packets being delivered in the run-up to Christmas.
As more and more Islanders shop on line, Jersey Post says that they are anticipating a 40 per cent rise in items being sent to the Island by parcel mail compared to the end of 2011.
So far this year, Jersey Post have seen a 28 per cent rise in that part of its business compared with last year.
In December 2011, the company delivered 20 per cent more parcels than in the same period in 2010.
