Re: POSTAL ALERT GERMANY
I have used International First Class exclusively and have only had one international package not make it to the destination (It came back to me six months later). This is over a span of 20 years.
First class has tracking included as well.
Thanks Bill, David and Steve for your comments; I sent my package by Priority Flat Rate International mail, as I am not sure what other kinds of mail can be used for foreign mail sent from US. As it is, it costs an arm and a leg.
I have had two issues with packages inbound to me from Germany. One took 51 days to arrive, partially
due to US Customs delay in inspecting the package.
The other package was returned to the sender after 5
months, looking like a football, with the notation
of "Not able to Deliver". The shipper contacted me and verified my address and sent it via normal mail.
That package was delivered within 15 days.
