Re: Your item departed a transfer airport in HEATHROW, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM

I have bought some items through eBay, the seller has sent a parcel from Califonia to the UK via USPS. I've gathered through research that Royal Mail will be the UK carrier, that will deliver the parcel. Details are below:

What happens next and what exactly does that latest tracking update mean?

Bit of an update. I decided to put the tracking number into Royal Mail Tracking, it then said it will be delivered by Parcelforce and redirected me, when I look at Parcel force, I see this:

Is it on the plane to come over (which I don't think it is, because surely, it won't take 3 days to fly over and scan) or is it in the UK already, stuck in customs, waiting to be cleared and then awaiting to be scanned by Parcel Force?

Your guess is the most likely scenario.

I've asked Parcel Force for some further information but seems weird that they both say very different tracking information.

Track17 and USPS leads me to believe it's already in the UK and it's departed the airport and on the way to the local depot.
Parcelforce leads me to believe that it's still in America/In the air.

:hmmmm :hmmmm

afaik any Parcelforce item that originates from abroad gets a "released by customs" scan once customs have released it

I've got no idea what's going on. It's all gone dark, tracking wise. There's been no update on USPS or Track17 since 11/10/2019.

Parcelforce shows last tracking on the 9/10/2019.

So basically, it was in customs for 4 days and Parcel Force has given it a new tracking number.
