COVID-19 Status Updates
We are operational & shipping daily!
Please expect delivery delays, up to 1-8 additional weeks depending on destination and method.
Why are shipments taking extra time?
-Postal services are operating with reduced staff.
-Domestic and international flight cancellation is shifting transport logistics to slower methods. A large percentage of international mail is transported on passenger flights.
-Customs departments are operating with limited staff.

USPS Shifting Mail From Air Cargo to Sea Transport (6/2/2020)
On June 2, USPS announced its fourth sea freight shipment of mail that it sent on May 20, which includes 6 more containers to Europe.
Please read more about all four shipments here and which countries are included.
Due to limited air cargo capacity, the U.S. Postal Service is shifting select mail from air transport to sea transport in an effort to move mail from the U.S. to international destinations.
Typical Priority Mail shipments that usually take about 7 to 10 days will now take about 4 to 6 weeks if the service is available to the destination country.
International orders: The USPS will not open investigations for First Class shipment delays.
The primary delay for international deliveries will be waiting for transportation and your country's customs department.
