A view from the other side: Incoming parcels from the U.S. to Germany...
travel usually 10 to 12 days door to door (about 10 parcels the last 8 weeks). These were ebay purchases for which I could pay import tax in advance through the Global Shipping Program.

Shipping from Germany to United States is currently very costly - the website of DHL states:

"At this time, transport capacities to the USA are substantially reduced. As such, special measures are required to maintain the shipping of letters and parcels.
Private customers: Until further notice, the only option available for sending parcels to the USA will be via the Premium service."

Premium Service results in a shipping cost of 53.00 Euros for a parcel containing perhaps one 1/43 model car.

For Canada DHL states:
"Items (i.e., letters, small packages, Warenpost items and parcels) can generally be sent to Canada.
Until further notice, parcels will be transported to Canada by ocean freight only due to very limited transport capacities. Customers should not specify "Premium" parcel service and expect significantly longer transit times."
