Japan – Typhoon

05 September, 2018

Japan Post asks us to inform the designated operators of UPU member countries that it is experiencing delays in domestic transportation and delivery of mail items and parcels due to the impact of the powerful typhoon that hit the western part of Japan on 4 September 2018.

Kansai International Airport (KIX), where Osaka International Post Office (Osaka INT: JPKIX), one of the six offices of exchange in Japan, is located, has been closed.

As a result, domestic transportation for outbound and inbound international mail and parcel services has been temporarily switched from Kansai Airport to other airports until Kansai Airport becomes operational again.

Japan Post is making every effort to maintain operational performance for international postal services and apologizes in advance for any unavoidable delays. It will keep designated operators informed of the situation and thanks them for their understanding and cooperation.
