Also have an increasingly long line up of ePackets waiting for customs. Half and half sent to Sauga and Richmond, and not all are EMS. I know at least one is through 4px which has previously taken as little as 6 days end-to-end.

It's odd because in the last 6 months, over 20-30 ePackets, exactly zero have waited more than 5 days to be processed, most same day, and now it looks like 6/6 this week.

What's going on? Did everyone start ordering ePacket shipping recently and now CPC-CBSA are discriminating against them for some reason?

Do RM....JP tracking numbers appear on CanadaPost's website? Or are they still unavailable?

My epacket left China on June 3rd and since then there has been no update. Also have three more epacket packages and all are showing no scans for 3-4 days after leaving China. I thought epackets had more timely scans but seems otherwise..

Any site that can provide any more details?
Thank my post if it helped!

Some of us have waited months for epackets to arrive. You've waited 5 days... If you're lucky you'll get it in 2-4 weeks.

Got a couple of eBay orders on June 11, 2018. One was ordered October 12, 2017 and the other was ordered December 5, 2017. Both where shipped promptly after they were ordered. So, first package took 8 months to get here while the second took 6 months. I've been hesitant to buy things from eBay because of the long delivery dates due to Canada post.

Just went on the CBSA website and saw this:

Mail processing delays
The CBSA is experiencing unprecedented volumes of mail arriving in Canada. The CBSA and Canada Post are working diligently to process your item and appreciate your patience.

Contact Canada Post to track your item.

Not very promising...

Would someone mind interpreting that for me? Google translate is making me believe that it was rejected by customs...
