There must be some reason eg. slower delivery right now because of Corona virus. I've been using post nl for a few years and they've been great.
Hope that your parcel moves soon. đŸ€ž

Most of mine through NLPost take between 5-8 days to move from that part of the journey, so wouldn’t worry too much and with time of year and everything it seems about right at the moment.
A year and a half being a vaper and counting, my favourite e-liquid is vanilla Custard. What's yours??

My package to the UK must be in exactly the same container as yours because the tracking so far is identical ! However, the packages haven't been with PostNL for a week, only a couple of days I reckon.

I think the first track "at the shippers warehouse" means still at FT because the tracking date/time is very much the same as for the FT package dispatched email. So basically it's taken 5 days presumably for ChinaPost to get a bulk container to PostNL and it's been with them for a couple of days. Hopefully there will be some movement on the home leg real soon tho :) Unfortunately, in my case I rather suspect that it's very likely to mean being stuck at HWDC Langley for a dog's age over Christmas, New Year and well beyond going on past experience of stuff arriving in the UK during a holiday period :(

Just for my information, has thee been any update on your parcel ? I had the same situation, was « ready for shipment » for a week or so, and suddenly jumped to « arrived at country of destination » today.
Please let me know if you are seeing anything new

My recent order which was sent via PostNL went like this:

2020-12-05 08:16, The item is pre-advised to PostNL
2020-12-03 09:50, The Item is at the shippers warehouse



Note that it took 6 days from FT sticking it in a jiffy bag and being received by PostNL. It then took another 6 days before it got sent over to the Netherlands - waiting for space presumably, as there's AFAIK less flights these day. Once was in the right continent, it moved pretty fast. It actually arrived early than I was expecting (Christmas post, pandemic, and all that). YMMV.

I found the online tracking lags a bit too, especially for the last couple of steps.

@mattia76 Looks like yours is still waiting to be flown to the Netherlands.

PostNL is quoted at 10-20 days, and that's at "normal" times.

Hello mattia76.

The order has been dispatched to PostNL on Dec 17, once PostNL has scanned your package information, the tracking information will be updated. Normally this information will show about 5-10 working days. So your package information will be updated this week if there is no stuck issue.

About the tracking information "The Item is at the shippers warehouse" which means the package arrives at the "shipping agency's warehouse", "The item is pre-advised to PostNL" means the package information has been sent to postNL system.

Hope you can understand and receive the package very soon. Thank you.

Weird, PostNL has been rather consistent for me. Package reached my country the 23/12.
Pretty good considering current period.
