Back in the eighteenth century, The Royal Post once reatained an America bound  package for six weeks.

The recipient, one Mr. Paine was not pleased.

The rest is history.

Without government employees you would have no roads to drive on, no garbage collection, no parks, no sports fields / facilities, no schools, no fire Dept, no police, no jails, no national defence, no water, no sewage, no power, no food regulations, no drug regulations, no disease control, no money production / regulation, no customs or immigration, no mail, no libraries, no public transportation, no airports, no welfare system, no elected officials or leaders, limited communication / broadcasting systems without space programs . . . . . And this is just off the top of my head. Sounds like utopia doesn't it? Yes some of these are privatized to some degree now, but that doesn't mean they're running more effectively or efficiently, especially now that those entities are businesses with someone looking to make a buck off of. Bottom line, unless you're some kind of hunter/gatherer survivalist, you would cease to exist without civil servants.

A year ago I ordered a wallet from Germany.  It arrived in New within 24 hours.  Then it sat in the omninous New York ISC facility for 30 days.

 

I called the post office, I called the store in Germany, nobody could help.

 

Finally I called the credit card company, Bank of America.  They were very nice, issued an immediate refuned to me. They told me they would investigate the situation.  I told them they could and that I would call them if the wallet arrived.  

 

Two day later the wallet from Germany was in Washington, DC. 

 

Lessons to be learned:

 

1. always pay with a credit card

2. You will have to give the butt heads in New York a month to get their act together. 

 

Good luck.

 

Nico

That's a bull**bleep**. For last 2 years I have seen a lot of improvement in the work of Russian State Post. Problems still exist but what you are telling here is not true. Right now my average shipping time to EU countries is 2 weeks, to US, Brazil, Mexico is 3 weeks and 3-4 weeks to SG, Malaysia and Thailand. Not a single lost parcel yet (I have my fingers crossed). Average shipping time within Russia is 1-3 weeks depending on distance between the cities. My rare parcels from US is now superfast - like 7-10 days for USPS Priority. Most incoming/outgoing parcels are processed in Moscow.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for the all of the pertinent info about the sort facility. We need more people like you who can fill us in. Nobody seems to know what goes on there at my local Post Office. I have a situation that I hope you may be able to shed some light on. I have been shipping internationally for at least 5 years now, mostly with no problems, even to Russia. I started stamping a bird on all of my labels and wrapping mostly in brown paper to make the package more distinctive. However, now I have 2 packages being sent to the same person in Japan that reached the Jamaica sort facility, and then became stuck in limbo. The first one is a thick package which arrived at the sort facility March 26. When I checked the number on the USPS site, it says the package is on route to its destination, no updates available. Does that mean it could be on a plane, stuck in customs, is there any way to know if it has left the US? The second was a medium/small box that reached the facitlity May 13. When I typed in the customs # I was able to sign up for updates, which I have done. I did notice that the buyer mispelled one word in part of the address, would that make a difference?I print all of my labels from the computer so I didn't notice until I tried to look up her city. I realize it's not an exact science, but do you have any advice?

 

thanks, Michelle

... and as it is not, you have to wait until it arrives... easy peasy. I live in Canada and after hockey,

waiting for widgets we've ordered from the United States is a National sporting event. We wake up

in the morning, put on our workout gear and head to the postbox, only to repeat the same process

day after day after day... I order comic books and I am convinced that all of the Canadian Customs

staff read my comic before turning it over to Canada Post... where it is read again by the staff there.

Hopefully, your perfume bottle will arrive full.

First and foremost, it actually means it was received by the ISC, not actually "processed through".

It also means it went through customs to get to the ISC.  The ISC's primary function is to process International Mail so that the USPS can bill the originating country's postal service for handling in the US.

 

Based on several conversations with USPS people, including ones at the ISC, they have no way of tracking what is in the ISC, including registered mail with return receipt required.  In my personal experience, if it is more than 10 days after the "processed through" date and there is no additional tracking, it is.unlikely the mail will ever surface.  In the past year 3 of approximately 30 registered letters of mine have disappeared into the ISC NY black hole, a 10 % failure rate.  The only thing the various USPS people agree on is that there is no way to track or find my mail.  

 

It it is also self evident they don't actually care.
