Re: How long do packages from Germany to the US take?
The problem my not be 'Germany', it may be the parcel carrier. For example, my purchases from GM have used DHL for years , average time, 6 weeks. For those who understand the parcel shipping world, the initials DHL speak for themselves. I recently ordered some athletic clothing from a company located 200 miles away, here in the US. Shipped through DHL, took 2 weeks. Many could have walked faster. Peter W. never used that service and his packages routinely took 10-14 days, max., maybe a couple of days longer at the height of Covid. Last year I received one of his parcels in 5 days.
In the 1950s an airmail package took 5-7 days. A package sent to me via DHL from Dortmund on August 1, is still hanging around at the Frankfurt airport since August 2.
