I currently have a parcel "In Transit to local depot" with NZPost for 7 days! (It only took 20 days from order to arrival in Auckland including clearing Customs)
I'm in Christchurch.
Regularly they say delivered for a tracked parcel.....but that may be to the Postie on say Friday, and in the case of a long weekend, we don't get it until the Wednesday.
Update: The parcel arrived via NZPost today. 8 days with them (After Customs clearance) to get from Auckland to Christchurch!
Update, Yep according to the seller they gave me the wrong tracking number apparently its in transit between nz and china (how long does that normally take?)

For me in Christchurch, up to 5 weeks from order / shipped to delivery.
Up to over a week for NZPost to deliver it once in their possession! (Postie delivered)
AliExpress standard shipping (14 digit tracking number starting with 9) seems to use CourierPost for delivery.
9 days order to delivery is my record for "seller free shipping". (And that was untracked delivered by the Postie!)
