US Postal Service COVID-19 Restrictions

Had a record delivered from the U.S. this week that only took 9 days from me ordering it. Still haven't got me box full that I ordered at the beginning of March though 🤦‍♂️.

Bought a few records from the US end of march. before I paid for them I asked seller if shipping to Germany is ok. They said yes. Paid immediately. Couple of days ago I asked for a tracking ID. They told me they haven't send it yet because their local PO said it's too risky to send abroad. 😡

Now I have to sit and wait.....

Records arrived from Carolina Soul yesterday that had been thru Miami and another that came via Los Angeles. Still waiting on a record that's been in Chicago mail hub since March 22nd, according to tracking update on that date is 'In Transit', with a Covid notice on it, so it looks like generally stuff getting thru albeit much slower and dependent on the route.

  

Mine stuck in Chicago too, not been there as long as yours, mines been there since 2nd April. Bazm keep me updated please cos mine might move shortly after yours.

I'm still waiting on a package of umpteen 45s that were posted to me by Colemine on 18 March. The last entry in the tracking information is "In transit to next facility" - that was 23 March. Where is it stuck? Chicago.

Makes you wonder what its been doing in Chicago for 20 days. I know times are not normal but freight is still moving and 20 days does seem excessive.

Like you say hopefully they will be with us soon.

Is this new, ie today?
This was updated yesterday. I mailed a piece from NYC to UK on monday lunchtime, and the guy said there were restriction in place but not to UK or Europe.  I didn't ask about going west.
It's at JFK as of now.

    I don't think it's a problem with Chicago  for the most part. One of the biggest airports in the 

U.S. (O'Hare) probably doesn't have many international flights leaving and the mail is just sitting there.

Just had notification the  record shipped 4 weeks ago has arrived in UK. It went through Chicago.

Probably true that number of flights are fewer so space is being taken up by commercial freight.

I'm in the UK, I have a 45 coming from the USA. Last I heard it was in Chicago INT Distribution Center, that was on the 31st March. I just kept getting updates saying it's 'In transit to next facility'. All of a sudden updates stopped. 

4 days ago I re-submitted the 'get updates' form and now getting updates again, yesterday it was in Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. 

Today I got this message:

May 6, 2020 at 4:02 pm

Departed

FORT WORTH, UNITED STATES

Is this a good sign?

Think we're all in the same boat.  Got stuff thats been at Chicago for weeks, not seemed to be moving and the same for stuff at LA; other tunes have arrived in pretty good time from different parts of the US.. especially ones not tracked!!

  Anyhow I had one going out from here and according to the tracking no. it had arrived at Langley and hadn't moved for  while.  I asked the guy as it had arrived in the US could he, in Canada, get any more info. than I can on it's whereabouts (- yes I know its a different Country but they're closer than us and it was taking an age) . ... turns out Langley is Heathrows sorting Centre.. so it had been sat here in the UK for weeks not in the US..  🙂

They posted it eventually on April 30. And the records arrived safe and sound here in Germany on May 08. Don't think I ever had a 'signed for' parcel from the US delivered as fast as this time.

I had a record sent via USPS Priority Mail International on 21st April from Arkansas, and the record took a detour, it arrived at London Heathrow on 2nd May, and then arrived in Frankfurt Germany 4th May ?,  arrived back here in the U.K on 10th May and it finally on its way here now hopefully, it’s currently been processed through parcel force in Coventry and on its way to me now, hopefully, can anyone explain why it went from Heathrow to Frankfurt ?, I find that very strange.
