Service Update Bulletin 14th December

International Services

Australia: Update 18th December

Postal services in Australia are back to normal as of Friday 18th December. The effects that took place were:

  • Due to an extreme weather event hitting Sydney on 16th December Sydney Airport has had to close therefore all international traffic to Sydney has been diverted to Brisbane. This impacted Australia's outbound leg 2 (some outbound product will take off late) and inbound leg 2 (for traffic to Sydney), as well as leg 3 deliveries in areas affected by the weather and by safety issues related to the tornado.
  • The industrial action by customs staff has now ended. Most of these staff were back in the offices of exchange on Monday 14th December, enabling Australia Post to clear most of the backlog. The main impacts were on inbound leg 2, for all products.

United States of America: Update 18th December

As of immediate effect until further notice the USA will accept motorised balance boards (hover boards) containing lithium batteries as surface parcels only. They will not be permitted to be dispatched to the USA as air parcels, surface airlifted (S.A.L) parcels, EMS items or letter post, or any other product involving air transportation. They may not be sent in closed transit and any boards found in transit mail will be handled in accordance with alarm resolution procedures.

Rwanda: Update 17th December

Due to the constitutional referendum in Rwanda, Friday 18th December was a non-working day. As a result there were no operations for the receipt, dispatch or delivery of letters, EMS and parcels.

Peru: Update 17th December

The postal worker strike that was called on 11th November 2015 has now ended. All postal services in Peru are operating as normal.
