Suspension of Surface Parcel to Canada????Suspension of Surface Parcel to Canada????Misc

DoroshiDoroshi1 month ago
So according to Japan Post news, it seems that Surface Mail to Canada will be temporarily suspended effective May 19th 2021.

www.post.japanp...

This is devastating since it was our only option other than expensive DHL, FedEx, or unregistered small packet.

Personally, I've got a lineup of pre-orders that were waiting for Surface Mail since it doesn't seem like we'll be getting EMS back soon (even though it's starting back up for the USA on June 1st). This is the worse....

Edit: On behalf of all Canadians, I guess I can say we're all in the same boat HAHAHAHAH time to cry

Only found out about this today, somehow I did not see this article 4 days ago. BS if you ask me. Why is it that I can still send a parcel to Japan, but not receive one from Japan. I know firsthand that back in Nov 2020 fights were only coming in from Japan(Tokyo Int specifically) 2-3 times per week. Right now they are coming in daily, 1-3 flights per day. I think the airlines have found better paying clients for their cargo space and JP Post is being forced to ante up.

Damn, I chose the worst possible time to start collecting figures again, ha ha.
Well at least cancelling most of my orders will save me money...

According to an AmiAmi staff, we can cancel orders without penalties on our accounts due to the lack of shipping options for Canadians and they're unlikely to hold packages that use Surface Mail as it may take months for it to return.

Looks like I'm cancelling all of my orders and quitting the hobby for good now.

What... the... f...

Sigh.

I mean I'm glad I already had shipped the only item that was big enough it needed to go by surface that I was interested in, and everything else is small packet size or Amazon (DHL)... But this sucks.

fgrthiuy1 month ago#97004264Ugh, I've switched to surface because UPS is utterly useless in my area, and DHL can't deliver two packages in a row to the same address without deciding the address in invalid...
I sure wish the lazy buggers at Canada post would quit hiding behind nonsensical COVID claims and at least pretend to be a competent mail service...


canada post is trash. change my mind :D
