[chbot] Digikey shipping data point

My experience over the past couple of years has been that 7 to 8 days for NZ delivery (from arrival at Auckland airport to delivery to me in Auckland) was not unusual pre-virus.


It often took less time to get to NZ from the other side of the world than to get across Auckland.  Judging from tracking data, it looks like customs clearance is usually done fairly quickly and things slow down once inside NZ Post.

interesting data point, I ordered something from aliexpress on 1st (that now is on the "essential" tech list, so I don't feel bad about that.) and it arrived in Auckland on the 12th, but I had better hopes/expectation than 8 days inside nz...

Hi All.


A data point for those interested:


I ordered some stuff from digikey on the 4th, it got to AKL on 6th and was delivered in Christchurch today (14th).


So the international part of the delivery seems good, but there is some sort of extra delays in NZ.
