UPDATED June 5th 2020

We are working closely with our international shipping partners to monitor the status of all international deliveries. We will update the list below as any status changes are made.


Leaving the United States:

Some delays due to staffing and less airline capacity. Aggregating some volumes in LAX to eliminate backlog and using charters to Europe to eliminate backlog. Not part of original sea freight plan. Current plan is three charters to unclog European destinations. Then the plan is to move Pacific mail to JFK to consolidate for ocean freight option moving forward. 14 charters over next two weeks and taking mail from all ISCs to the following: Brazil; Germany (and to serve Italy); to Brussels (for Belgium, Switzerland, Netherlands, Denmark, Luxemburg, Sweden, Portugal); also to New Zealand and Australia.  These will move the oldest and most expedited mail first. 


 Shipping into countries with "Expect Delays" as noted below means there are limited flights into your country and/ or we have to re-route through other countries to get your package to you. Our expediter will hold orders in their facility and send them when they can. This means that your parcel may be “stuck” in San Francisco for a period of time (even 4+weeks).


As of April 30th we will not ship "Service Suspended" orders out of our facility. While our expediter will hold your order and ship it when they can we have decided holding them here at CastleMania is the same as our expediter holding it, but gives you the option to change your mind an cancel your order if the delays persist.

Anticipate parcel delays for the foreseeable future, even as Canada Post delivers at record levels. As consumers continue to ramp up and diversify their online shopping, we’re responding to unprecedented parcel volumes, while maintaining important physical distancing measures in all our facilities. Processing record parcel volumes in plants that were never designed to keep people two metres apart takes more time. All of our processing facilities across the country remain at maximum capacity and are facing some challenges with backlog that are creating significant delays. We’re reaching out to some commercial customers in Montréal and in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and implementing some short-term restrictions to help manage our backlog situation. We are hopeful that these restrictions will assist us in addressing the backlog over the coming weeks.
