O Mail will make the downtown Curitiba exclusive for orders coming from China🇧🇷 The information comes from Fishisfast, which is a freight redirection company. In this case, she responded to one of her clients about the situation:
Without any prior notification, Correios redirected orders originating in the USA that were supposed to be processed in Curitiba, to the processing line in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. This is a measurement by Correios & Federal Revenue at the moment, regardless of our service. Only orders originating in China are being processed in Curitiba, given the volume (6 million orders per month). There is no prediction of normalization.
The ePacket shipping method is the most popular choice for stores, and perhaps that’s why it was the most affected method in the first place. As for the post office, it is worth remembering that the agency recently started to implement the ‘Sedex Hoje’ delivery service in Rio de Janeiro, a model that promises to deliver the order to the recipient on the same day of posting.
Another point where this should make a difference is in the taxation of products, since this is the time of the so-called “Fine comb” moment. That is, it is a period in which the Federal Revenue/Correios are stricter with the taxation of items and the sending of packages, according to the redirection company.
Still on the subject of Correios, it is worth remembering that with the entry of the new government next year, the process that would privatize the agency should be suspended. This must be due to a request that will be made for the procedure not to go ahead.
