Not only is shipping slow, it varies by carrier here and in other shopping places. I had a shipment by DHL ex SZ to AU that was about a week, but normally three days. Another was by FedEx, normally three days but over two weeks.

The most annoying thing is that because of transhipment, i.e. goods being offloaded to other carriers, to keep freight routes open, the strictest rules apply so batteries, liquids and even sharp implements are not able to be carried at all - every freight option is 'greyed out'.

I feel sorry for FT as this is putting a huge dent in their business and leaving so many customers so unhappy.

Let's look forward to happier times ahead.
