FWIW,

I called Newmar Corp in Nappanee, Indiana on June 8 to order twelve small window blind clips.

Newmar sent them by USPS regular mail, small padded envelope on June 9.

The envelope arrived August 3. Envelope was fine, wasn't opened and taped again, and the address label was correct.

Almost two months for a small padded envelope is a bit much but at least it arrived.

Mike.

Speaking of Canada Post + USPS...

This spring I ordered a small nearly-unobtainium electronic part from a store in B.C.... it took two full weeks. Came the same day as another envelope from California. Both padded envelopes had obviously been run over by a cart. Good thing he didn't put a "Fragile" sticker on it!

Luckily the very rare part (a hybrid sampling bridge for a Tek S-4 head, if you're interested wink ) is mounted in a tough aluminum block, and survived.

I dont ship internationally but .. my wife sent a small package via USPS to a friend that lives about 20 miles away and it took over two weeks to arrive... I had a fiberglass bumper for sale for $50 and weighed about 8 lbs. the UPS shipping cost was about $80 to just about anywhere in the U.S. I am starting to see that some things I try to sell aren't worth the shipping costs and hassle.

"The S-4 sampling gate is based upon a traveling wave trapped-charge transmission line in which the sampling window is set by the propagation time of a pulse edge through a thick-film transmission line. This technique requires only a sharp pulse edge rather than a precise pulse width, which is harder to generate. The sampling diodes are housed in a special coaxial connector that provides a high bandwidth signal path."

Now my head hurts.

So some parts ithat I ordered got shipped UPS instead of USPS as I asked. UPS phones me for brokerage payment, I ask what is the declared value, the UPS person says 160.00, I ask what the brokerage charges are, he tells me 82.00 dollars. I instruct the UPS person not to broker the parts, I give him the info for my broker, he says it has now been assigned to my broker.
I call my broker, give them the freight info, tracking etc, he emails UPS to release the package clearance to him, UPS responds that they can't release the paperwork to my broker without my authorization, which I already did an hour before.i'm not sure where its at now. My broker will charge me about 35-40 for the brokerage.

The Northern Kentucky International Airport
(official name, but in reality Cincinnati's major airport)
has been in the news because Amazon made it their in house airline package delivery hub
after KY State gov gave them large subsidy money
and promised to build up the airport just like they did for much longer established UPS sorting facility at the Louisville Airport.

So eBay and USPS have close by
operations/sorting centers/warehouses
for international package delivery?

My fuzzy memory is that years ago when DHS had plans to become equal to Federal Express they had a big operation there.

Historical Tidbit:
On the first international flight from that airport,
KY’s then female governor Martha Layne Collins flew along,
ate her airline meal (unknown to her it had a glass sliver in the food)
started bleeding internally and had to go to a UK Hospital for emergency treatment.

Yes, things can go wrong at that airport.

That land area across the river from Ohio used to be almost totally controlled by organized crime, up to roughly 1965.

I think there is a book roughly titled:
Before there was Las Vegas, It all happened in Newport KY

On the other hand, the founder of the USA version of the Boy Scouts was from that area.

I finally received the package on 8-6 and believe it or not, another identical item shipped from the same exact location on 8-4 showed up today 8-6. Both by Fed ex. So again I say it's like gambling IMO wink

Delivery from all companies will continue to provide unhappiness. I ordered a $70 exhaust resonator pipe for my wifes car on June 18th from Rock Auto. $70 pipe and $15 Fed Ex shipping. Went to order EXACT same exhaust pipe today wed 8/11 (I have 2 identical daily drivers) and the same Fed Ex shipping is now $176!!!!!!!!!!! The cheapest shipping offered now at RA on this pipe is R&L Carriers at $147. I don't think this is the peak of the craziness either.


Keep old mopars alive.
