International Advisories 

We will strive to keep this list as up to date as possible, but it should not be considered fully inclusive of the situation with each country. As everyone worldwide knows, this situation is changing on a daily basis. WoodTurningz is still shipping all international orders to our consolidator on schedule, however it's likely that you may experience service delays for delivery. 

Canada Post confirms that processing of inbound items from the US will proceed as normal and asks USPS to continue sending mail dispatches to Canada.  While processing of domestic and inbound mail from USPS will continue as normal, there may be some delays on certain inbound mail items from USPS due to limited air network capacity. It should be noted, however, that the surface and air networks between USPS and Canada Post are operating smoothly.  Given the potential for service delays for our customers, Canada Post is treating this situation as a case of force majeure. Canada Post has also implemented revised delivery procedures. Inbound items from the U.S. requiring payment of customs duties and taxes will be sent from our depots to a retail post office for collection. Customers will receive a delivery notice card telling them which post office is holding their item. 
 

Israel Postal Company advises it will continue to process incoming and outgoing mail, giving priority to premium services such as express mail service and PRIME, and will make every effort to ensure regular distribution of mail. However, due to government restrictions to minimize spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the post can no longer guarantee service delivery standards with designated operators and any interested third parties and is invoking force majeure with respect to any such standards.

 Royal Mail Group (Royal Mail and Parcelforce Worldwide), as part of UK  advises that it can no longer guarantee service delivery standards that apply under UPU and associated or related bilateral and multilateral agreements with designated operators and any interested third parties, and is invoking force majeure and analogous provisions to any such standards.

Spain's post advises the Spanish government has declared a state of alert through March 28 or possibly a later date in an effort to reduce the risk of the spread of the coronavirus. In order to comply with government directives and minimize social contacts, the post will reduce its logistics chain workforce, including sorting and delivery, impacting service for all types of inbound and outbound mail. For this reason, service delivery standards cannot be guaranteed and a situation of force majeure has been declared until the situation returns to normal. Customers should anticipate major impacts on operations and, consequently, on quality of service for all types of inbound and outbound mail.
 
Swiss Post is no longer able to guarantee inbound and outbound mail standards, and is therefore invoking a situation of force majeure with regard to quality of service and remuneration for all categories of mail items until further notice.
