Carton of razor blades.

10 weeks from the Ukraine to Sydney via Global postage. It took 3 days from seller till the parcel left the Ukraine. 9.5 weeks to drift around the world. I could have put a message in a bottle and it would hace arrived quicker..

On the opposite spectrum. 3 x tubes of palmolive shave cream free shipping from the UK, exactly 14 days.
That doesn't fill me with a lot of confidence as my Smart Helix razor departed the Ukraine over 2 weeks ago and they state anywhere around 3-4 weeks for normal shipping (without COVID-19)...? :nailbiting:

At the moment, I'm looking at an average of 3 to 4 weeks to get from Sydney to Tasmania. I think they're using little old ladies with shopping trolleys to move stuff.
Domestically it appears to be a lotto if you receive items in a reasonable time frame or not. Gargravarr your location hiding out with the Thylacine's certainly adds to your delivery issues.

I noticed on my last two DHL parcels that arrived to Australia via Melbourne. They normally arrive via Mascot Sydney. I compared when I received the previous order to the last recent two, and found it added approx 5 days extra to the delivery time.

Yet I ordered blades from Vshod in Qld at 2pm on Thursday. They appeared on my doorstep in Melbourne 10am Friday morning!
Vshod send alot their deliveries express.

I received an item from a forum member Perth to Sydney express, and it arrived in less than 36hours.
