Re: What does Processed Through Sort Facility ISC New York (USPS) means?

in reply to rcom7177

Thanks for the Info, The USPS lost my Package at ISC /JFK 8 months ago and they claimed it was shipped to Destination and it was not . I called the 1-800 number on the Custom Declration form and explained  the situation,on my lost package that I am waiting for the last 8 months. He said well go and write to your congress representative about your issue.  After reading your note I realized what has happened to my Package. But the USPS is covering it up, Thanks to you I know now.

ISC New York still VERY slow. Have a packag there for a while, smh. USPS is really getting pathetic.  ISC is NOT customs it's a sort facility used by USPS and a LOT of USPS offices don't even know that!!!  Just called my post office and the lady knew nothing of ISC or what it is!!!! wow Smiley Sad

Guys ISC JFK is not the problem believe me. I am a Postal Worker that works at ISC/JFK as a ramp Clerk (I am out on the Field making sure the Airlines are Bringing the mail into the facility and making sure all outbound mail is going on the right flights ETC. I been employed for almost 38 years at JFK, and believe me their is major problems with the AirLines Ramp Personnel they are the guys or girls they when the plane lands at JFK they go into the bully of the plane and take out all MAILS and Luggage then they bring all the mail into the facility, now these Airlines Clerks DO NOT WORK FOR THE AIRLINES they are contracted workers only making $10-$12.00 an hour with little or no benefits. And these people are always trying to ROB and Take your packages and believe me it's a big problem at JFK. Years ago up to 1982 these airlines had their own people doing the ramp they were employed by the airlines making $25-$30.00 an hour with flying benefits do they were honest. As far as postal workers are concern we make a great salary $60,000 a year with overtime, we get 440 hours of vacation per year if employed over 12 years plus we get 4 hours of sick leave per check (2) pay checks per month so Postal Workers are not stealing your mail as they do not want to get fired. Postal inspectors try to catch these ramp clerks working for the airlines and they are doing the best they can. Here is a phone number that will connect you with the Tour Desk at ISC/JFK...718 553 7286. Good Luck to all...

Nope.  No problem the other way.  I mail items to China all the time and it'snot that expensive for smaller items.

I shipped 10 ea., 128 GB, HD/SD Cards to China and it cost me $15.08, total.

Because it was so low they refunded me the shipping also!

I have a feeling they are stealing packages in ISC NY. I have a package from UK that has been sitting there since the 8th. I am about to drive up there in person.

Re: What does Processed Through Sort Facility ISC New York (USPS) means?

in reply to juzmoon
ISC is NOT customs! It is the international sort facility for JFK or whatever major airport your parcel is flown in.

Also, it is very misleading to say that your items, if not received, were confiscated by customs. 100% untrue. Customs is REQUIRED to send a letter no more than 30 days after your items is seized. Usually this is within 2-3 weeks from my experience. Thus, if you haven't received an item whose final destination was "processed through ISC" then chances are the parcel is lost and may just pop up whenever. I had mine show up randomly 3 months after EMS shipment.

Packages at ISC NY are mostly stolen or lost. I`ve had 5 shipment in last couple of months never received.

 

Your response is ludicrous. If you have not received your parcels, they were likely confiscated by Customs, not stolen or lost by ISC NY, which is a USPS international sort facility. I would venture to believe USPS employees value their stressful jobs and will not risk losing them by "stealing" parcels.

No. Your buyer has not yet received the bag. When the USPS update shows a green "Delivered" on your tacking number, then you can relax.

 

Concerning all those who are concerned about the terrible slow downs we have had with incoming and outgoing parcels, it is ALL due to the elimination of certain facilities and consolidation of not only Post Offices, but major sort facilities and ICS - USPS sites where international parcels are processed through.

 

Here are a few links to further your frustration, but knowing the facts is better than guesswork and theories:
