Hi All :)

New to the forum, but have used AGS before, although only from US and Germany, with great results.
However, I recently shipped some camera gear from Japan expecting similar results, although this is not the case :/
The package was shipped to the forwarding address on the 2nd, which was delivered (according to local delivery service) on 6 May. Today (10 May, 4 days later) there is still no acknowledgement of receipt on the part of AGS.

Can anyone relate to this?
Aramex are having “issues” at the moment we are currently in a fight with them

Hi guys.

Has anyone used AGS to buy stuff from best buy in the US? According to their website, they don't ship to known freight forwarders, but I'm hoping AGS has found a way around it???

Last info is that they don't shop to freight forwarders..
Perhaps you can try via eBay using PayPal? They also advertise on that.

Is anyone else experiencing very slow local AGS service suddenly? My packages all seem to reach South Africa in the normal average 3-4 days, but then once it reaches South Africa, movement is very slow.
My only two packages in transit at the moment:
Cleared from customs - 10/05/2019 (4 days no movement)
Under processing JHB - 06/05/2019 (8 days no movement)

I e-mailed the usual jnb support address but as of late, only receive the automated reply that the email was received and no more communication after that. It's almost as if AGS South Africa has become a ghost town.

I'm currently experiencing the worst delay I have ever experienced with AGS. I've been waiting for a parcel since March 23rd and the only thing they are able to do with it at the moment is scan it every few days:

FML at this rate the eBay buyer protection is probably going to expire before they deliver this parcel. :mad:

Please do post here if you get any new tracking lines or any feedback from Aramex. I've tried phoning, emailing, praying, smoke signals. It's as if AGS South Africa has shut down.

Same here. Slow updates and absolutely no response on requests or emails. At least the package is moving. Think they employed a clan of sloths and fired all the actual humans...

I managed to get a hold of someone in another department who sent an internal email to all the Global Shopper staff asking for feedback on queries. Unfortunately, none of my packages have started moving again yet. Not sure what's going on at Aramex.

Probably busy handling all my shipments and ignoring you.
Seriously, I want to pay for all my shipments and get 15% off. Unfortunately Aramex are screaming that they want da munney.
Some shipments are still en-route.
They can wait.

We are also experiencing very slow shipments from Aramex. Shipment is now over a month with Aramex SA.
Got a reply email stating its due to "customs delay".

Find this a little odd as I just received a package within a week from another freight forwarder.:unsure:

Aramex still don't offer a service to let you send stuff from multiple stores to a postbox and then send them all at once... do they?

Anyone know any services that do?

Quite a few shipper's offer this collating service. Postbox-courier.com come to mind.
