Dear Paul:I was supposed to get my two prisms I bought today, but they are coming by truck from LA after leaving customs five days ago. I called my local post office to see what the holdup was and that is what they told me. I don't know why the USPS has gotten some of my orders to me on time and others quite late. I would have thought that sending my parcels by air would be the only option, but apparently, it isn't.
let me to tell you something about the logestion from China to US about the parcel i sent out.
Usually after I receive the payment, I will deliver the goods on the same day if I have inventory.Typically, the package arrives at the international airport in zhengzhou, China, on the same day and is cleared for departure, then it arrives at Los Angeles airport in five to eight days, or San Francisco or Chicago.The U.S. customs department then does the entry, which is then delivered by USPS, and it takes another five to eight days to get to the destination from Los Angeles.This is the general case, the fastest case I encountered, seven days to reach the client.Of course, even if you use DHL or other more expensive, the fastest delivery service, it usually takes 6 days to get from us to the United States.But it can take 20-30 days to complete delivery if bad weather, or ebay's busy season, or even staff negligence.Usually the problem comes in transit in the United States, you know there are enough people in China, so there are enough people to get the job done.Logistics costs are also very large, and sometimes even freight costs are much higher than the value of the goods.I will open the American warehouse for delivery later. I will first send the goods to the warehouse in the United States, and then they will be delivered directly from the American warehouse when you need them, so that you can receive the goods within 7 days.But that's for the future.Now that I've replaced most of my products with the standard speedpak service, which is ebay's newest logistics partner, the timeliness may be one to two days faster than usps, and there will certainly be delays at times, but it's certainly more assured than usps.
