Default Something weird going on with shipping fr Germany

I don't understand why recently the shipping from Eu and esp Germany via duetsch post to US has been so abysmal. It's actually worse than the shipping from Asia.

After the tracking showing the package is trarnsferred from Germany, it would take like minimum 2wks for it to show up in US custom. Packages from Asia would show up in US custom on tracking within a few days from leaving the origin.

I have many packages recently from Asia that arrive faster than from Eu, particularly duetsch post. And i am paying like 50euro for this shipping while Asia shipping is cheaper... The port of entry is very similar (NY) most of the time.

I know about the excuse of usps being overwhelmed but it doesn't make sense why packages from Asia would arrive at my door faster than from Eu, esp Germany

Yes, shipping from Germany to US is not that easy. Going with premium service will go by air, costs 53,- Euros but how fast this really is .... no idea.

Shipping without premium service will go by ship, and take 1, or 2 "months"!

Yes, months!

I did ask for premium but it's still like weeks between the time it leaves germany and the time it is received in US custom. I don't understand this delay.

Its very weird because the shipping from Asia which is farther is now actually faster than the shipping from Eu, esp from Germany. So i am wondering what's going on.

I have the same problem the other way round. Ordered from the US and it took the USPS two weeks to even get the model on a plane from Atlanta. Weird!

the only shipping that is reliable right now is the one that has ZERO involvement of usps!
