JP surface post tracking


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

Anyone have recent experience with Jp surface mail( sea freight) tracking.

I'm 7 weeks in waiting  and am unable to track after it left Japan- anyone know how I can get any more information?

I tracked a motor bike from USA and was able to follow complete journey- but here nothing after despatch?

Only sent surface as DHL wouldn't  send- only koshirae by the way!

Would appreciate any views or contacts if there is one- apart from phone- my Japanese is very poor!!

Regards 

Michael

I use Sea freight from Japan for packages of books
Without the possibility of tracking the shipment
The package usually arrives in Europe 10-12 weeks after leaving Japan

I am not sure how long it usually takes to Australia. The top end of estimate to Finland is usually c. 90 days. My last batch of books (shipped in November) by surface mail took pretty much 90 days to arrive, almost spot on 3 months.

Hi Brano and Kids I, many thanks for your comments. Seems I still have quite a while to wait! But must admit I'm surprised that the tracking does not continue after it leaves Japan? I've  been on JP website tried to find a contact email but nothing only the phone number of last point of despatch! - what would be thechances of reaching an English speaking worker! Thanks again for your input and I'll  keep fingers crossed!

Cheers

I am waiting for a sea freight which left Japan on January 30. And I think it will take a while.
When my daughter was in Japan for 1 year, she sent heavy packages by ship twice. They usually took 3 months to reach Germany. It was not possible to track the shipment.

That being said, I recently waited two and a half months for a small package by air from the US. Despite tracking - hadn't been much use - you could only wonder why it was criss-crossing the USA and lying around at airports for ages before it went across the ocean.

Many thanks for your thoughts and experiences!

DHL- well - jauce over packed my purchases - 65000 postage! But wait theres more- DHL refused due to length of parcel( you would think this auction company would be on top of that! Really!) I advised to collapse parcel/ repack to their specs- but wait theres more- DHL  viewed my Edo daisho koshirae as replica swords- tsunagi- what the ____. Refused parcel completely!!!

Advised jauce to send by surface- left on 28/1/21 and as most have said tracking is a joke! Certainly makes one wonder if its really worth it - but it's under my skin so " suck it up princess!"

Getting hard!

Cheers
