Post How is Overseas Mail Handled?

Hello, all. Quite recently, I sent a mail order to Jamul and, for a few more dollars, got a tracker on it (making it a Registered Article), so I'm able to see where it is in the world.

I'm just a little curious. When mail is sent overseas, does it have to go through a major post office first before it is sent to the place where it should be?

That's probably a good thing to research. If I knew I would tell you. unfortunately I also am curious now (too bad I'm too lazy to look it up).

Well, I sent a PM to Jamul with my query, and what he confirms is that mail to other countries all share the same flight and arrive at one location before they are split up to different locations by surface mail.

Let's take Anza, CA as an example. If Jamul's confirmation is true, then mail that goes to Anza will be transferred onto the next available flight to CA before being delivered to Anza via the roads.

That's a good question. My local tracker works up to the point when the mail leaves Singapore. That was on January 23.

In short, I have no idea. All I know is that it's en route and already somewhere on the other side of the world.

Mind you, I'm withholding my speculations and some extra data because I'm afraid Jamul might not agree to it.
