So I been sending some packages to USA from Europe. At the beginning of pandemia a registered shipping took over 2 months to arrive (in one instance over 3 months). Right now not even 2 weeks. I would say that post is getting better but that's not even possible. Right Newman?

Ordered 28th April, no update since 3rd June.

Slightly jealous of you guys and your good experiences.

** Edit ** FYI this is international, US -> Australia so I do expect larger delays than usual but I have a horrible feeling this is never arriving.

I’ve had 2day fedex packages arrive in two weeks. Yet another reason to be international right now :dead:

Pre-Covid, and even during the first few months, packages cleared Canada Customs within an hour of arrival. My last package spent over three weeks in limbo between the airport and Canada Customs. I called both Canada Post and Canada Border Services to find out what the problem was, and they laughed at me and said that currently anything less than 6 weeks is a bonus. Apparently the volume of packages has more than tripled from pre-Covid volumes.

Another package arrived to USA. Standard shipping in less than month.
