I see this all day every day.
Basically, CP's carrier arrived and the packages were handed over in bond. 6am.
CP's bonding agent handed them over to Australia's customs agent at 9.02am.
The reporting agency now shifts to Australia's customs and they scan them in at 9:02am, basically a confirmation of what you already know. "We gave them to customs" and Customs saying "we got them."
Your problem now is with Aussie customs.
Your problem with CP lies in the 6 weeks from 02/24 to 04/15. Obviously, they held them for the next boat for 8 days, and put them on a boat...and a slow boat at that.
If you paid the cheapest price, sorry that's what you get..it sucks, but there's no funny business.
On the other example you give, someone paid for air shipping and that's why it was only 2 days.
