A Shipping Saga

As Covid-19 continues to ravage the entire planet, DW/N and DNMs have seen increased traffic, and some miserable customers due to shipping delays.
International shipping has been taking over four weeks. An overloaded system then received flights being grounded at the beginning of May, or in Colorado’s instance, a complete shutdown of the central USPS hub.

Cannabis users rush to DNMs to stock up, followed quickly by other consumers causing what in all likelihood is the most significant month of new user registration in DNMs history.
As sales start to increase and suppliers become strained, combined with a failing delivery system, all while being hit with DDOS waves, the supply chain still operates but slowly.
So let us quickly answer the question that is on everyone’s mind, “is there anything I can do to ensure the safety and speed of my package” outside of normal OpSec? The short answer is “no.” maintain OpSec and maybe take this time to improve.

The USA seems to be the hardest hit, with substantial central USPS hubs being ordered to close as of this morning, such as Denver, which deals with all mail to Colorado and Wyoming residents.. This week we are experiencing delayed packages both ways across the pond. Most parcels are sitting in sorting facilities and have yet to be checked.
Some mail has been wholly cancelled, and you can find that here-https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/welcome.htm

Now you might be saying to yourself, “Well good; they are overloaded. They will forego checking packages and just send them out” however, the opposite is exact. DHS is scanning packages at a higher rate due to things like “Bat blood”, “Contaminated Human Blood”, “Vaccines”, and “N95 masks”, along with a plethora of other random hot pandemic items.

So when will things get back to normal? Well, it might not. I think we will see significant changes with inspection due to the fake vaccines and other COVID related items.
But this is what you are most likely here for, how long from NL-UK or NL-US.
The short answer is, anywhere from 5-53 days, then add the time it took the supplier to ship and we could be talking months.
