Customs in Russia can cause delay

When parcels are being sent over via Russian post either nationally or internationally, they tend to be slow as it is referred as a global courier network with mail operators working in multiple countries. Despite of the statuses of the parcels being delivered, when sent via Russian post, it takes longer delivery time. One of the major reasons is in the custom process, i.e. cargos sit indefinitely at the Russian customs that changes over the passage of time. Hence, the recent changes and limitation of imported goods per habitant made within the Russian customs practice contributes to the difficult situations.

Custom officials have declared that the exports and imports are normally drugs and weapons that demands tight control. This results in higher workloads and thereby delays in deliveries
