Brazil - Delays due to increased volumes

14 January, 2020

The USPS has informed Asendia USA of issues in Brazil which have resulted in delays to the country over the last several weeks. Following reports of delays from several customers, the USPS contacted Brazil Post to request details on the situation and an estimate on when it can be expected to be resolved.

Yesterday, Brazil Post informed the USPS that the delays are the result of significant increases in inbound volumes which were 56% higher in December 2019 over the same period in 2018. Brazil Post explained “This unexpected high volumes associated with some technical transmission issues have generated an impact on the treatment and information exchange of some items. However, due to some contingency actions implemented by our operational area, the forecast for the complete regularization of these issues is the second half of February.”
