Every time I have sent anything to the UK (Airmail) it usually lands in the midlands, Birmingham airport I think, once it has cleared customs it is trucked to the sorting office for the region it's being delivered to then out fro the local sorting office & onto the address.

Yup, goes to East Midlands & then on to wherever it's addressed.

 

Had to send some docs couple of years ago, used DHL & although it was fully tracked, it really wasn't so much faster, maybe two days.

 

And, it cost me 20 quid...

Just wondering what is wrong with that works the same in my country. It comes to a central place and then gets distributed onward. Is that not how post is supposed to work.

Inexpensive and fairly quick  3-5 days  to send by Thai Registered  post and I've tracked all the way to the actual  time delivered.

But you didn't SPECIFICALLY ask where it went to INITIALLY did you? Therefore, since it will ULTIMATELY go to the local post office for end-point distribution, my answer to your very poorly phrased question is 100% correct.

 

To be perfectly, grammatically correct, you should have asked "...where is it dispatched FROM in the UK?"

 

Since pretty much ALL countries have an inbound 'clearing house' post office for inbound international mail, I'm pleased to learn from your thread that for the UK it is in the Midlands at Coventry. FWIW, all inbound international mail for Thailand goes to Laksi Post Office, near Don Meuang airport.

 

...then it gets lost.
