It's not their postal system that is horrible...it's our own US CUSTOMS DEPT. I ordered a painting from Luxembourg and it took 7 and a half months to get to me for the simple fact that after the ISC the package gets inspected by customs and the customs in pectin process can take 24 hrs to 90 days....this is literally the time from that a us customs agent told me. So it could take FOREVER

I've been waiting since 11/23/15 and it is now 12/8/15. My package "passed through" the ISC on 11/23 and no tracking info since then. I just filed a claim today. **bleep** is going on and why isn't anyone doing anything about it?

WOW! Scary. I'm waiting for a package from the U.K. Hope and pray this sort of nightmare doesn't come true for me! This is a FIRST-RATE FEDERAL crime, last time I checked and is punishable with fines and up to (I think), 15 years in jail. This is much worse, for that matter, than going right up to someone's mailbox and simply taking their mail yet if one were to do that, they'd be (GUARANTEED) some MAJOR jailtime. My package has been sitting, or so the tracking info shows, for appx. four days in their **bleep** ISC sorting facility.

By many of the accounts I have read, these are cases of fraud waste and abuse by the ISC Centers. To hold these mail items up for such a long period of time, with no explanation, or reasons after acceptance of payment to process mail articles in a timely manner and then not fulfill that obligation is fraudulent, and to permanently "lose" an item that is tracked, has to be nothing more then theft by someone at the ISC Centers. When the items description is clearly marked on the outside of the package, with someone who's looking for that item for theirselves, can simply place the item in a box set for local delivery and either that person or a partner takes it for themselves once outside the center. This has happened before at local POs so what's to stop it at these ISC Centers? That is two very large problems, they should become part of the discussion in fixing or abolishing the ISC Centers. Please don't dismiss these "rants" but look at the underlying issues behind them! Make the workers responsible for the packages sent through their "line"! If they get 500 letters/packages to sort and review with tracking numbers, then 500 should have gone to the next "check point", and so on until the items are delivered or handed off to the host country. If a package happens to disappear while going through their line, they must find it prior to going home or face an investigation into what happened to that item. Use of cameras would go a long way to keeping the items from finding the wrong home as well!

There is currently a  theft ring in ISC NY. I am also waiting for a package, however I am losing all hopes of it clearing that place. I wish USPS would do something about this god aweful place. How many packages must be stolen before action is taken?

Update:

 

I contacted USPS about my package being stuck at NY  ISC the other day and they said the sender had to fill out an international inquiry. I contacted the sender about that and he said he'd do it.

 

Now that I hit the 2 week mark, I decided to try USPS again. The person I spoke with said I had to speak with someone in the international package department. They tried to transfer me but hung up on me instead.

 

I called back and was on hold for 20 minutes. I was told that mail could sit at the ISC for up to 30 days. After she could offer no help she transferred me to her team lead. 

 

The team lead was the worst help I received so far. I asked why no one could contact the ISC, which is 60 miles from my house, and I was told that that wasn't the protocol. She refused to transfer me to their international department because she said they will only tell the sender in the UK what happened to my package; not me. She then said she was going to disconnect the call because she couldn't help me any further. I told her that their service was unacceptable and illogical. She basically said you're welcome and hung up on me.

 

What a disaster! Then they go and cry to the news once a year about how they aren't making any money. Maybe it's being their service is the absolute worst!

I heard the reason mail is so slow is because so many smaller POs have been shut down.  Does not make sense to me when a package can take 2 full days to travel a distance of 43 miles between two cities.  On the other hand, if there are POs in smaller towns that have been shut down, then mail trucks are having to travel to the next closest PO for delivery.  I have had packages take nearly two weeks to reach a destination that normally took a week or less.  Pretty bad.  Don't even mention letters that never reach their destinations.  What's up with that?  Our mail carrier won't take packages out for delivery....she leaves them for the carrier that works the next day to deliver.  How can they get by with that?

With all the horror stories on this subject, I guess I got really lucky.I had nightmares thinking about those delays at the ISC in New York. My package from Japan, a camera, was scheduled for delivery between Nov. 13 and Nov. 20. Here it is Nov.4 and it is out for delivery as we speak.
