I’m watching Michael Palin’s round the world in 80 days, and it really is amazing how far we’ve come in a short period of time. You’ve had a parcel picked up, transported to a different country and delivered in 26 hours. It’s quite staggering.
Yeah, nah.:cry:

You realise that it was being shipped over the holiday period right? This is both an increase in parcels and a decrease in working hours available at the same time.

If it takes 2-3 days normally, I would think you could double that over this period.
