30 days today and still waiting for my book from UK. Not a word about its status, other than it had been 'dispatched'.

 

 

Is it a tracked item?

If it gives you any comfort, you aren't alone. I and every person that I have talked to about this have numerous untracked items from the UK, US, and Europe that are nowhere in sight despite having been sent well over a month ago.

Don't know if this list is anything to go by, but Norway Post seem unable to ship to New Zealand.. or maybe they just forgot NZ exists: https://www.posten.no/en/customer-service/country-list-mail-updated

 

I subscribe to Tim Wendelboe coffee and my April sub never arrived, usually gets here in ~10 days.

5kg of Mandarins turned up - shipped on the 5th.
Not ideal, but in suprisingly good nick considering. 70% still ok.

Just checked...

 

Once again, The Warehouse have shipped an incomplete order, yet supposedly everything was in stock!

 

(I see a pattern here, NL do that too. Sell things they don't have! - I finally cancelled my last order with them after finally getting an admission that they didn't have stock of the item)

 

 

 

 

That really pisses me off. I ordered something from NL, it showed my local branch had it in stock and available for click & collect. After I ordered it, it said available 20-27 May. Tried to cancel it 3 days ago, still waiting for response. There were other stores which had it cheaper but I ordered from NL only so that I could go there and collect it the next day.

The practice of making employees"independent contractors" is a disgrace. It's done solely for the purpose of removing their employment rights.

It has been this case for many many years, when my brother used to do couriering work. I don't think couriers do it for too long before moving to other jobs as it is just too hard for many. Not unless you work your way up in the organisations. I know someone who has done this to the top, but had to start out doing delivery. 

 

Considering we now have a labour government, I am surprised they haven't made moves to change things.

Geektastic:
I do not know who delivers Australia Post items here in NZ, but I have one that has been in Auckland now doing nothing since Tuesday last week at 0709 hrs!

 

Australia Post is IMHO a very lethargic organisation, exhibiting the worst aspects of both a government bureaucracy and a private-sector monopoly. I have several family members living there and others in the UK, France and the USA and it's noticeable that letters and parcels to and from Australia take longer to arrive. [OK, except France in July & August, nothing moves there then!]

 

I have a package that's "Cleared and awaiting international departure |SYDNEY NSW | Date & time Thu 7 May • 1:28am"
I know there's restricted flights a.t.m., but you'd think there might be one in four days from Sydney to Auckland. Sigh

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you had any progress with your package from Australia? I have one showing international departure on the 12th May - I understand and expect delays, especially with actual delivery but I wasn't expecting to have a long delay in it arriving here. I just want to have an idea of how long people are experiencing through the various stages. I wonder if they have arrived in the country but are sitting in a container until they can get to even scanning them as received? When I looked on the Australian Post site it is quoting 10-15 days for standard to NZ - I don't know how updated and accurate this is considering our delivery situation.

I forgot this was being sent, gives you some idea:

International departure doesn’t mean it’s actually left the country yet. It’s most likely waiting for a plane plus many other packages before it.

I just don’t track things anymore so it turns out to be a surprise when it turns up 🥳
