La Poste, the French Post Office has advised that a major strike has affected the French overseas department of Martinique for the past three weeks, causing delays to collection and delivery of all postal items. 

There is no end date for the strike at present. Delivery delays are likely to continue after the strike period due to a backlog of mail. 


Israel Post has confirmed they are dealing with a backlog of mail and parcel items due to an unforeseen increase of volumes. Items are being processed as quickly as possible and normal service is expected to resume at the end of the month.  


Unfortunately, due to the situation in China, some of our suppliers have implemented an embargo on all mail items to China with immediate effect.  

We are working with our suppliers to find alternatives routes and will keep you informed of any updates.
