Table of Delivery Time (International Parcel Post - Kawasaki Higashi Post Office)
Following table shows Information on approximate days required for International Parcel Post (Surface mail) delivery.
- “Standard delivery time” refers to the average time needed for delivery from the posting date at Kawasaki Higashi Post Office to the destination country or territory.
- Please note that the actual time needed for delivery may be different from that listed in the table when a Parcel Post item requires more time for customs clearance or is addressed to a remote destination.
- The table indicates the average time required for normal delivery only and does not in any way guarantee any exact number of days for delivery. If weekends or holidays are included in the delivery period from reception to transport and delivery of the item, or if there are delays or cancellations in the sailing schedule, delivery may take longer.
- The departure of a ship may take longer time after the posting of your item. Please expect a one-month buffer for standard delivery time.
- “Surface mail” is handled as non-priority mail. If you have a delivery deadline or need speedy delivery, we recommend using EMS or airmail.
