Post your holiday items abroad early
November 27, 2013
International mail volumes from Japan have increased considerably this year, thanks to expanded use of international postal services.
We have made arrangements to secure additional transport capacity and have requested overseas postal operators for their cooperation in handling our mail volumes as smoothly as possible. However, we anticipate that we will accept even larger volumes of mail to other countries during the coming holiday peak period.
Larger mail volumes will be sent especially to Europe, North America and Asian countries not only from Japan, but also from other countries. Consequently, there may be considerable delay in the delivery of postal items to these destinations due to congested mail transport capacities of the airlines and the longer time needed for inbound mail processing and customs clearance.
If you are planning to send international mail items during the holiday period, please post them as soon as possible.
Thank you for your kind understanding of and cooperation with this situation.
