NOTICE: Regarding Shipping to France, Spain, Netherlands, Ukraine, Algeria, and Gibraltar


In December 2017, the postal service stopped accepting SAL-class shipments to France, Spain, Netherlands, Ukraine, Algeria, and Gibraltar, due to serious delays being experienced by Air France Cargo and KLM Cargo at Paris Charles du Gaulle Airport and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

With the postal service still not able to say when SAL-class shipments will resume to these countries, HLJ's Standard International Shipping option will ship now by Air class instead of SAL class. More economical than EMS class, Air Small Packet class does not have a tracking number. We can also ship to these countries by priority trackable EMS class, and are exploring other possibilities, too.

As soon as the postal service can again send SAL packages to these countries, the SAL shipping option will return for them on In the meantime, though, we hope the addition of Air-class service will be a useful option for our customers in these countries.
