Post Shipments to UK

Hi, I can see my item was handed to the Forwarding Agent for Transit (I believe the airline) on 29th April 2021. The item was posted on 13th April and then sat for 2 weeks at the Regional Sorting Centre. The tracking reference is LZ786191198CN.

I've not had any items take this long before, either to depart China or to actually arrive, even during COVID-19. I've even had items arrive in 7-10 days from when they were posted as recently as February.

Can you help please? How long do I need to wait to claim from the seller, if I can't do so already?

I also have 3 other items that were shipped on 1st May; LZ827475165CN, LZ833745879CN, LZ833750998CN. I guess these will also sit for 2 weeks at the Regional Sorting Office before being handed to the airline?

Thanks :)

Thank you. Do you know how much longer it is taking at the moment to get put on a flight due to COVID-19? My other 3 parcels shipped on 1st May have all updated today to show as being with the airline now, so they only took 8 days instead of 14 to move from the sorting centre

Now is difficult to predict arrival time. Give you two examples:
LZ624251588CN, shipped on Jan 20 and delivered in UK on Jan 27. Only one week arrived UK.
LA127662306CN, shipped on Jan 4 and delivered in UK on Mar 22. took 79 days.

Airline does not assign shipping space based on first come first out rule. it is like lottery.

Hi, these 3 items have just updated to "Received by the Carrier", does this mean they have now been put on a flight? There were already "Handed over to Forwarding Agent for Transit" 3 days ago.

LZ827475165CN
LZ833745879CN
LZ833750998CN

Thanks

Received by the Carrier means airline has accepted the goods. The item is waiting for flight to destination, not necessarily means it is on the flight (normally ON Flight date will be 2 to 6 weeks after Received by the Carrier date).

Once item gets flight, you will see next update.

LZ833745879CN
LZ833750998CN

These have all changed to "Waiting for airline space" and then to "Flight Arrival" - does this mean they have arrived in the UK?

Thanks

No. They arrived a transit airport, not UK. After arriving UK, their location will show UK city name (Langley, London etc).

Thank you. Is there anyway to check if it is a transit airport in China or the UK? I noticed my last parcel arrived on a flight to Stansted before showing on tracking as being at Langley. Hoping it's arrived there and waiting to be moved to Langley as it'll be here sooner!

Thank you
