[Regarding the delay of International Parcel Post airmail & SAL shipments]
Due to equipment and system failures inside Kansai International Airport caused by the typhoon, overall delays have yet to be resolved.
According to Japan Post:
1. International post items in Kansai (EMS, Airmail, SAL) have been partially transferred to Tokyo (Narita, Haneda).
2. At Tokyo International Post Office, the mail load has rapidly increase and the processing of mail items is taking time.
3. EMS is being priotized over International Parcel Post airmail & SAL shipments.
Due to reasons such as these, a great delay has occured in the shipment of International Parcel Post airmail & SAL shipments.
Should you have selected airmail or SAL, please kindly understand that it will take longer than usual.
