Continuing Postal Delays Due to Heavy Rainfall-caused Flooding in Thailand (As of November 15, 2011)

November 15, 2011

We made two previous announcements on October 12 and on November 1 regarding postal delays due to Heavy Rainfall-caused Flooding in Thailand, which has continued to negatively impact the timely delivery of postal items throughout Thailand.
As of November 15, since the impact of the flooding can still be clearly observed, the delays in postal deliveries to Thailand are continuing.
In case there is any difficulty in delivering to your addressee due to the flooding, your item will be kept at the available post office in Thailand, and if the addressee is not able to come to the post office within 30 days to pick it up, the item will be returned to you the sender.
Please be informed that even if the item is delayed or returned to the sender after the abovementioned term of custody has expired due to the impact of the flooding, the postage will not be refunded due to force-majeure reasons.
Thank you very much for your understanding of this difficult situation in advance.
