Status on delivery for our main destinations

Find the latest news and update alerts of the following countries:

USA

Date of alert:

22nd of September 2020, ongoing
Average delay:

9 – 27 days

Country:
United States
Reason for service alert:
Update 22 september: Hurricane Sally is active in the Southeast United States coast and is causing heavy rainfalls and flooding in the regions of Florida and Alabama. There are no reports of flight cancellations in our line hauls, but delays will occur in the final stage of delivery.

Due to the impact of peak volumes and limited availability or capacity of our United States Postal Service entry points (at US airports), we are experiencing heavy delays on our shipments. Transit data shows that USPS is experiencing major backlogs in these entry points, resulting for some volumes to experience delays of 6 weeks or more. 

We are aware of the issues USPS is facing and where. We are working closely with USPS every day to get our shipments to the right entry points with the best capacity. While we are working hard to resolve this as quickly as possible, we are dependent on our partners. Unfortunately these delays affects both mail and parcel volumes. In addition to that we have noticed missing scans in the US, resulting in items frequently missing updates until they are sorted in the domestic centers of USPS

Canada

Date:

01 July 2020
Expected delay:

Solved

Country:
Canada
Reason for service alert:

Due to restricted access to flights and capacity issues at the only available Canada Post entry point (airport) in combination with peak volumes, we are experiencing heavy delays on our shipments to Canada. Due to corona prevention measurements, Canada Post has delays in processing. This has created a backlog, from which we also see that first in–first out processing is no longer maintained. At customs there are also delays for various reasons.

We are confident that Canada Post will hold up their high performance levels on delivery (99%) albeit with heavy delays. Due to these delays, we will only start working on inquiries from our customers after 60 days. We keep monitoring the situation closely and will update our webpage on a regular basis.
