Comments Japan Post no longer sending RSAL for selected countries

  • Okay, apparently it's true, JapanPost posted a statement on this. Registered SAL won't be accepted in those eight countries and also registered sea mail won't be accepted anymore at all.
    www.post.japanp...
    Still no explanation on why only these countries though.

    Sprinkler7 years ago#1894640I meant DHL Päckchen International mit Service Nachweis. Without Nachweis you'll pay 3 euro less and don't have any tracking or insurance.

    I know the option but the thing is you can only purchase it online which is really stupid in my opinion... Plus the fact that letters arrive faster and have the same size regulations.

    lucy47 years ago#1894589The service you mean(Päckchen,right?) doesn't include tracking. You can send it as letter however and get tracking extra(arrives faster too).

    Sprinkler7 years ago#1894569I also think it's plausible that there has been a misunderstanding somewhere.
    The post in Germany a service for international shipments up to 2kg and a max sum of lengths of 90cm which includes tracking and takes around two weeks to arrive. They don't call it SAL but it's basically the same, isn't it? I just called their customers hotline and they said there won't be any changes to this service in 2014.
    So if RSAL from Japan won't work anymore in 2014, I would still be able to send stuff with a RSAL-like service to Japan but I won't be able to receive stuff with RSAL? This makes no sense.

    And so I conclude this reply might be evidence for the theory that there has simply been a misunderstanding in Japan somewhere due to the word "surface" in the brand 'SAL'.



    JustSomebody and Myself where asking around the Japanese Stores.
    Thats the information we've collected so far:



    ---------------------------------------------------------------------


    Mandarake:
    The online informations is not out yet so the officer from the post
    office came personally and told us that there'll be a new regulation.
    You might find similar news from other Japanese international online
    shops.

    Basically, shipping with Registered SAL to these countries will not
    longer be available:
    AUSTRALIA, GREENLAND, DENMARK, GERMANY, NORWAY, HUNGARY, FINLAND, POLAND

    DHL mostly depends on the size of the box,
    For the size of a SAL box, DHL will be 3700yen.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Rakuten:
    We actually have not received any notice about the matter of registered
    SAL you mentioned the other day.
    We are now asking Japan Post if and when the issue comes into operation,
    and will let you know when we get a reply from them.
    Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Plamoya:
    Hi,
    yes, it will be affect our service also.

    Best regards,

    We can confirm that we have not had any such notification of this from the post office and so we should still be able to send items via this method. If anything changes however, we shall update this on our website for you.

    Nippon-Yasan:

    Hello and thank you for your email!

    Excuse me but i would like to know where did you get this information ?
    Because our service didn't hear anything
    If they were to remove one shipping mode they would remove everything registered and unregistered

    We are in contact with our post office to see how things gonna go down cause we actually weren't aware of this change and they usually letting us know in advance for those kind of change
    We will keep you inform on what to do.

    I think this is an excellent point! That's pretty much airmail to me too. I think the main reason SAL is slower is not because of the surface mail in both Japan and the destination country but just that is is using a lower priority than regular airmail by using excess capacity on airplanes. So the EMS and regular airmail fill up the planes first, then whatever is free will be made available to SAL. If the plane is full, they wait for the next one. That is why in some cases SAL can be as fast as regular airmail, other times it is slower.

    longtailed_kat7 years ago#1891311SAL is a service where international mail is handled as surface mail in both Japan and the destination country and as airmail between the two countries.
