ISC = International Sorting Center

 

Usually co-located with a CBP Port of Entry for Customs inspection.

Anytime I order from out of the country and USPS is used the service is outstanding, anytime its used within the United States it absolutely sucks. Makes no sense what so ever!

2 things:

 

1. The USPS is a joke. Complete joke. Most unreliable service I've ever used. No wonder they are struggling to stay alive.

 

2. USPS Tracking is an even bigger joke. USPS would be better off only offering tracking on Express Mail. People watch the tracking and just freak out.

Apparently there is a USPS Sort Facility in Athens, Greece. What a strange tracking itinerary this is, It took your package 6 days to get from Chicago to New York and minus 4 hours to get from New York to Greece (a 10 hour and 22 minute flight). That's pretty slow and then very fast even given the 7 hour time difference.!

Hello guys,

 

Can you please give me an advice?? I am expecting a package from US to Greece and in the tracking History I can see the following: 

 

Tracking history

 

 

 

Does this mean that it arrived in Greece and departed again for Chicago? 

 

 

Thank you for your time!

 

 

Best regards,

in reply to hiram32richard

hiram, welcome to the part-timer's board!

Erm....that post was from back in October. Doubt just2cool is around to care about htat package anymore.


Actually,  "Any package that is from overseas, NEEDS TO BE SIGNED for"
is not true. I have gotten plenty of Chinese trinkets I didn't have to sign for. But it was cheap stuff. This package, the seller must have requested a signature.

 

Business closed on the 14th, then the next scan is the 21st back to the sorting center. You're right, there should have been some more scans about delivery attempts.

 

Makes you wonder if just2cool ever got that package.

It appears this package has gone all the way back to Customs and was on its way back to the sender of the Package. Any package that is from overseas, NEEDS TO BE SIGNED for. It appears that you had it sent to a BUSINESS address. It says in the listings BUSINESS CLOSED on the date they attempted delivery.  The Post Office in Forest Hills should have tried to make an attempt to redeliver on the next day or you should have gotten a notice ( probably stuck between the door and frame) telling you attempt was made to deliver and telling you to go to the post office directly to pick up your package. Seeing as how it appears you did not do that they assumed the package was UNCLAIMED and was then sent back to Customs for preparation to send it back out thru Customs to the point of origin. It looks like it is part of the GAFU  ( Great American F*** Up) . Wish I could tell  ya differently. . Next time if you expect a package to arrive , You are better off to have it sent to a home address.  At least that way you got a shot at having it redelivered to your home.

It looks like your package hasn't left the sort facility yet. You might get better results if you call your local Post Master. He or she should have the ability to have your shipment recovered or found and the shipping expedited.

Isn't there any way to find out the status of something held up in customs?  I've gone to the post office multiple times and all they go is shrug and say it's not their problem.  I bought a jacket (not fur, not wool..... just a used velvet jacket) - and it's been stuck in customs for almost 8 months.   Even my postal carrier said it's insane.  She took the tracking to her supervisor - but got no further than I did.  Any suggestions?

That's what it looks like to me. You might try to have the post office intercept this package by calling them right away. Your local branch will do.

I find that strange that this happens to you guys, any time I have ordered something via mail from overseas & it goes to the ISC, it's never been held up, stolen, or mis-shipped O_O.
