One of my Covid Gripes
« on: May 23, 2020, 05:39:24 AM »
Ordered a Crazy headcover which was despatched coming 4 weeks now. No sign.  Shipping service says pls be patient as Covid has basically fucked up the postal system in Japan.

Sigh.. and I have another package that has just arrived to the shipper.  Think I'll hold it there for a couple of weeks in the hope things settle a bit more with Japan post.

I'm getting stuff from China much quicker these days.

Not a very important gripe given the shit storm this continues to create .....

I literally just got done reading a story from the Guardian about how Japan is basically impervious to COVID

Yeah.. I thnk I have to go the FedEx route.  Its actually cheaper than EMS at times but in this case, I guess price has to take a bit of a back seat.

I was about to say the same thing. Even out of Taiwan they have stopped sending to many countries. So best way forward either Fedex or DHL:(

Yup, went the FedEx route for my latest package out of Japan. About SGD9 more than ems so not too bad.

My club fitting stuff from golfmechanix out of Taiwan is also very fast via DHL.

Looks like Japan Post is back up to speed again.  Got a couple of packages in pre-covid delivery time.

Good sign.

Was this EMS express from Japan to USA?   I thought EMS was still shut down to USA?  What is current status?

I'm not in the US so I can;t answer that.  Regardless, EMS is still slow.  It sits with Japan Post for a week at times.

My purchases from yaj have been coming “rinkya prime” (FedEx) and not only has it been affordable it’s been almost impossibly fast. Like 2-3 days to my door. When I try to get a quote from FedEx for anything overseas it is exorbitant.
