Re: For Sale: Multiple coupler types, assembled and kits - Australia

Yes but the current problem is tha First Calls isn't currently available, only Priority for about US$80+ per package or Global Express for US$123.  And I was told at the Post Office that it's because of the restricted passenger flights.

Hoping these will be lifted in March as I have some stuff to ship to Brisbane area.

Hey mike, there has been a steady stream of flights from Australia and New Zealand. United airlines have been running though out the last few years to get freight/mail moving (airlines have been using the normal passenger airplanes for just the underneath freight. It’s the passengers that’s been limited to essential/return citizens for a while. This morning is the first day that the international border for Australia has been opened.

Last I heard was that the US has limited service to Oz and New Zealand as normal commercial flights there have been curtailed by those countries.  No planes, no mail heading to/from there on planes.

The current US postmaster is a self serving face job named Louis DeJoy. Last December he suddenly announced that the United States Postal Service could no longer afford to ship the mail to Australia and New Zealand. An out and out lie!

Never mind the proven fact that he is invested in several companies that ship international parcels in direct competition with the US mail. His actions are a clear violation of conflict of interest laws in this area.

Because the the US postal service is run by a board of regents style committee. He can not be directly removed by executive action. The postal board most vote to remove him from office. But believe me, there is a movement afoot in the USA to have this self serving jerk removed from office and banned from public service for good.

There is currently some sort of financial or regulatory stand-off
between the USPS and the Australian mail system, at least from the US
outbound.  First class package service has been suspended in favor if
the much more expensive priority mail.  I don't know if it is in effect
inbound as well.
