I have been expecting a letter from US mailed on 24 April. In 4 days it made it to a New York facility. Now finally yesterday tracking shows it made it across town to the Jamaica New York International facility. It sat there from the 28th til 16 May,,,,,,,,,,hopefully it will make a plane to Thailand soon.

Thanks for this information. It gives me an idea of what to expect.

Obviously there have been delays that are originating in the US.

 

I ordered a package from iHerb on April 5th which just arrived at my Lamphun address May 14th. 

The package was shipped via DHL April 5th and processed in Compton, CA on April 6th and then sat for a full month.

On May 7th the package as scanned in Frankfurt, Germany.  From there it arrived in Thailand on May 13th and arrived in Lamphun on May 14th.  As usual for mail that I track, mail within Thailand is usually moves between Lamphun and Bangkok in less than 48 hours.

So for whatever reason the holdup is international courier originating in the US.  And I find it interesting that the package was send though Europe when it originated in LA.  No direct flights from LAX to Asia on DHL?  Who knows.  Hopefully this silliness is drawing to an end and commerce is ramping back up.  At least I order again from iHerb now that the package arrived but my expectation for shipping time is now 5+ weeks with packages just sitting in a DHL warehouse for no particular reason.  Don't bother attempting to ask DHL why, they won't answer you.

Update on this letter sent using registered US mail,,,,,,,,,,USPS tracking now shows it has made it to a plane at JFK New York. Only took three weeks from Wisconsin to a plane bound for Thailand. Maybe it will arrive here in LOS in a day or two

As written in another thread:

Yesterday (May 18) I received a parcel from the US (NY) with some herbal supplements.

Due to the corresponding letter it was shipped on May 4.

Positive surprise: no hassle about customs. Just came through.

I had been wondering about iHerb orders. I stopped ordering from them the end of a February because I thought there might be a problem. I hope you get your order soon.

I hesitated to name the company: PipingRock.

I had given up with iHerb as I could not find a way to pay (for me).

Update to my letter from the USA. It arrived yesterday. Total 33 days from start to end. I show a txt file of the 2 primary tracking sites I use that reflect the time and dates of movement.

48 days now, still no parcel from the US. No news other than it got to Chicago 18 May and was in transit to the next facility 22 May, whatever that means. 
 

Meanwhile a second USPS package sent a month later got to Jamaica NY 13 May and no change since then.

Based on the track of my letter the bottle neck is Jamaica (JFK) as my letter sat there almost 2 weeks waiting (for a plane?) but once it got on a plane my letter arrived here in about a week or so.

FYI. My brother mailed me a small package form Midwest in U.S. on 4/18. It arrived at my apartment in BKK on 5/27. Normally that version of post takes two weeks.
