At this time, transport capacities to the US are considerably reduced. In light of this, special measures are required in order to maintain mail and parcel service. Please note that effective September 15, 2020, we will ship some products to the US via ocean freight until further notice. As a result, very lengthy transit times of at least 25 to 30 days should be expected. For destinations in the western United States or in remote regions, the transit time may be considerably longer.


Merchandise shipments for private customers:

Small packages and parcels without Premium Service will be sent to the US via ocean freight until further notice. From September 15, 2020, franking will only be possible online.
DHL Paket International with Premium Service remains available for faster shipping; in this case, items are shipped to the US via air freight. This product can be ordered online and in retail outlets.

I suspect that this is how the Insider #2 got to Australia and why it was so late..

I have had some parcels that came via airmail. The last two were shipped by OOCL via Antwerp and arrived in either Montreal or Quebec City and were put into the mail from there.
This has included both packages sent as Deutsche Post mail and as DHL small packets. I guess that if they can't find a slot in a air container, they send it by the next available means.
I heard that some airlines had increased the cargo capacity on certain routes. I don't know if this was done by reassigning planes or by converting planes to carry more cargo.
