Hi,

I ordered the CD of Amiga Future magazines a couple of days ago from a company in Germany and a buddy at work ordered something else from Germany last week and it's late. The company said that Germany is currently on lockdown and nothing is shipping outside the country.

Can anyone confirm that?

Thanks,

Mike

I do not know Germany details, wait for Germans to speak, but in general "lockdown" is usually referred to restrictions in inter city and inter state movement of people due to possibility to spread covid. Goods tend to go slower, but they pass, since they cannot spread virus - just less humans and less time is available for shipping, transport and inspections. So its slower, but never off.

No this is not true. There is no postage lockdown.
 
For example, Apollo-Computer also German, is shipping everyday and does this worldwide.
The packets reach oversea targets like USA typically in 3 days.
