From my personal experiences:

-Hong Kong Post 10-30 days (avg 21 days)

-EMS 6-12 days

-DHL 2-3 days

Keep in mind unless you have a long term or trust between each other they are going to ship as cheap as possible. If it is light weight they will ship hk post. If it is over the given weight they will ship ems since it is a little cheaper, and if you have a long term and trusted relationship they will usually ship dhl.

hong kong post's time frame is ridiculous. it seems like any time you buy something and need it soon, than it takes as long as possible.

NO...speak to your supplier. I am sure they used HKEMS, which is also referred to as HK Post. Trust me on this, I have used it for a few years.

HKEMS is just as fast as DHL, and even faster because once it's in USPS hands, they can deliver on Saturdays. Unlike the ignorant jacka*ses at DHL who are employed as independent contractors and have no clue what the f*ck they are doing half the time.

Hong Kong Post is great and i find the safest method of posting....

With EMS/DHL times don't varry much but with HKpost i have had packages take 3-30 days with the average being around 10-12 obviously it may differ slightly in the US...

HKEMS is great. I always get my stuff in 48 hours ,the only issue could be the customs.

Both HKpost and ChinaPost are horrible man. You might be looking at about 20 days. Hopefully you didnt have anything sensitive shipped, or else it might be all banged up by the time you get it. DHL cost more, BUT tends to have more customs issues.

However it's faster and at least you have up-to-date tracking in the event there's issues.

I have not seen this happen. Plus, for those with customs issues, the risk of losing shipments to customs is far worse and higher risk.

Hong Kong Ems isnt great, I think the best out of all the ems services on offer from china is singapore ems. Your supplier probably shipped you hk ems as it was the cheapest option available when they checked the weight against the destination.

Theres not a huge difference between all the ems (guangzhou, shenzhen, hong kong and singapore) they usually arrive within the same timeframes +/- 1 day.
