Updates on Shipping Suspensions

 

Due to newly detected Omicron infections, apart from the already-suspended flights, Cathay Pacific has announced immediate major cuts on its flight schedule, severely impacting cargo services from Hong Kong to the USA, Canada, and Australia.

These flight cuts and suspensions will remain effective until further notice.

These suspensions have a further restraint on available shipping options to international customers.
SAL (e-Express) for customers in Canada  is now under suspension.
EMS Shipping is only available for packages under 2kg for customers in Canada.

Vantage (Courier) is a new shipping option offered by the Hong Kong Post which charges by the Volumetric Weight (kg) of the package, which bumps up the shipping fee as figures are usually “heavy” in volumetric weights.

Here are the available shipping options for customers in the above countries:

USA
-SAL Shipping (under 2kg): 7-14 business days
-EMS Shipping: 2-13 business days
-Surface mail (SAVER by sea): 44-73 business days

Canada
-EMS Shipping (under 2kg ONLY): 2-12 business days
-Surface mail (SAVER by sea): 40-70 business days

Australia
-SAL Shipping (under 2kg): 7-14 business days
-EMS Shipping: 2-13 business days
-Surface mail (SAVER by sea): 30-57 business days

Please check the notice issued by the Hong Kong Post for more details.

Please note that the above estimated delivery days are subject to delay.
