Thread: Custom Strikes in Australia causing delay?

  1. #1

    Default Custom Strikes in Australia causing delay?

    The recent custom strikes in Australia, is it causing a delay in stuff coming and leaving Australia.

    I had something shipped last Monday and haven't received it.
    Anyone with the same issue

    The only stopped work for 1 or 2 hours for a meeting.
    Even if there was no strike, it's probably too early to be expecting to receive anything.
    It's Australia! haha...
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Took a post card four months to reach Aussie from Hong Kong, even though it was stamped five days after being sent out. You've been waiting how long?

    How many mules it takes for such a long journey?

    And you need mules which know how to swim to get across Pacific Ocean.

    Four months is short liao. It should have taken four years.

    They are not known to be slow. They are known to randomly pick out packages to store for long periods of time for the lulz. they're famous for it.

    Maybe in the next week or so.. Or in a few months. It's like winning the lottery. You will never know when you are going to get it. you can't call them either cos they'll only redirect you. Be patient bro... There's nothing we can do.

    Did you order your shoes a size bigger?

    Because when they eventually arrive your feet will have grown bigger.

    Maybe 2-4 days for local delivery (within the same suburb).

    Dear Mr. or Ms Basherbomb:

    2 to 4 days is the time that is taken to ship your package from Australia to Singapore.

    You will have to wait approximately another 7 working days for your package to be transferred from the Airmail Transit Centre (ATC) at Changi Airfreight Centre (CAC) to the Singapore Post Centre (SPC) at 10 Eunos Road 8, 7 working days for your package to be sorted accordingly where it will evidently be stuck somewhere along the automated processing system before someone stumble upon it and free it, and finally another 7 working days for the package to clear custom.

    On the day of delivery, you will find a delivery advice with illegible scribbles slotted under your door by a SlowPost Ninja™ indicating that "attempt(s) to deliver the article was unsuccessful" despite someone being at home all day.

    Cheers.

    Dear Mr. or Ms Basherbomb:

    You may have been a victim of potential fraudulent online activity typical of transactions between unknown parties involving Western Union Money Transfer.

    Cheers.

    Western Union Money Transfer + Non-Existent Tracking Number = ???

    Please allow another day for the postman to cycle from the post office to the stated address.

    I think it is faster to walk to the house and deliver the item yourself if it is within the same suburb.

    Hmm, maybe I should wait just awhile more. Before I determind if it's a scam.
    I understand that sometimes they forget to scan, and the item isn't updated in the system until it reaches singapore post office.

    Don't scare him la. The Aussie tracking number cannot be traced sometimes. it's normal. Sometimes this happens to the USPS one too. Perfectly normal.
