    The HK Post website says there will be delays in all airmail services because of the rescheduling of flights

    And Cathay has further reduced their long haul flights today. No clue what the trans-pacific air-mail/courier looks like right now for the postal services who use passenger flights to carry mail.

    Well my registered post ‘sent’ two weeks ago appears still to be in HK and with air mail suspended to UK last time I looked I’m not holding out much hope

    Posted a small parcel by SpeedPost to France on the 28th march. Arrived in Paris on 3rd. Should get distributed on 6th. So it is still not too bad overall

    Lady at the post office told me US-bound Speedpost packages will now take 1-2 weeks to get on a plane. I dropped off two last week and they're still waiting to get loaded onto a flight.

    I've heard lines at DHL and Fedex are long today. Would recommend using Speedpost.

    I think at this point using UPS, FedEx... is a better option than Speedpost. They transport their own stuff, Speedpost depends quite a lot on schedule flights

    Planning to ship masks to UK and looking for advice on:
    - most economical way to do it
    - what is the avg weight of 50 pcs of face masks?
    - do you repack masks into ziplock bags?
    - if using Speedpost, do u need to declare the items as face masks? if not, what?
    - if using Speedpost, will face masks fit a packet/parcel or is it more economical to ship a small box and just fit as much face masks in it as possible?

    Thanks all and appreciate any advice!🥰
    You need to show mask purchase receipt don't throw it
