Shipping between borders during covid

I have allot of orders coming in between 5 different vendor in different part of the world . Im reading horror story’s about packages getting stuck at the worlds health organization in Langley dc.

2-4 weeks from states to Canada, a week within Canada. I’m waiting on a pack from UK mailing this week. No customs issues with packages, all good, 4 more on the way in the next while.

This doesn’t address your question directly, but I just had a package delivered today that was shipped 14 days ago. It was shipped with USPS Priority Mail and was to have taken 2 days.

Point is, even if the item crosses a border in a reasonable amount of time, it may still get hung up in a US distribution center for an extended period of time.

At this rate, we might need to get our Christmas cards and gifts in the mail by the end of October :grimacing:

It took almost a month of sitting in customs but had my order from msnl in today

I had a package take 11 days recently and it was shipped from within my own state a 2 hr drive away.

Post office is swamped, lots of folks are also out sick compounding the problem. I have to assume customs is the same way.

Surprising enough my first package in customs spent 12 hours in Langley dc , 12 hours in NY NY isc and is onto its ending destination in New England. That was out of the Uk , I dont see my next one coming from Italy going as smooth.
