Coronavirus pandemic leads to slower mail delivery from abroad

Mail delivery from abroad is much slower than usual. Mail is now sent by ship across the Atlantic rather than by air.

Deliveries that would normally only take a few weeks can now take over two months, NRK reports.

“The coronavirus pandemic has led to almost no aircraft flying across the Atlantic,” said Posten Norway press chief Kenneth Pettersen.

Letters, parcels and other mail are thus transported by ships instead. A possible voyage for a regular letter from the United States must therefore stop at a port in Europe before being transported to Norway via trucks.

China is the country from which Norway receives the most mail. From here, too, the delivery is much slower than usual, and the mail is transported by freight train via Russia.
