Christmas postal delays from China

Posted on Sunday, November 7th, 2010 in News by Ian

Get your orders in now if you want Christmas gifts from Seeed Studio. The holidays are really busy for Hongkong Post, and mail from China can take up to 7 additional days.

That means your orders from Seeed Studio will not get on the plane as quick as before.You will have to wait 3 – 5 more days to see your tracking info available on Hongkongpost.com. On the airport side, your parcel might held there for another 2 days due to the lack of cargo space. All above reasons will cause about 7 days delay on delivery of your orders.

    I order mobile phone parts, and accessories from China. They usually come via UPS or DHL. I have already started to notice an increase in the time it takes for them to arrive.

    I have noticed that with UPS I more often see that my package makes it onto the plane, then they unload it. I don’t know if this has anything to do with having lots of cargo or if just the packages I am getting are really heavy. Either way packages from China to Australia are taking 3 or 4 days via UPS.

    Seeedstudio seem to be having their own delays… my last order from 2 Nov has been stuck in “waiting” status for a week and there’s no response to emails.
