EMS is a waste of money, might as well select Regular shipping.
I ship electronics all over the world (not AAS, big difference, I know). I can ship Express International and have it take longer than a Priority International and first class international might get there before both.
I also ship firearms, ammunition and explosives (with a class 3 import/export license to countries on the approved list). You'd expect those shipments to take FOREVER but on occasion they clear US and foreign customs so fast you'd think I bribed someone.
I receive international shipments on a daily basis in several locations via many shipping methods, some sit in customs for weeks, some breeze right through.
There is no evident rhyme or reason to why some packages take longer than others in customs, especially since they search so few.
Actually, there is an algorithm that's used by ICE/US Customs to determine a large part of what gets held but we're not privy to it.
If you chose EMS and the shipper sent it EMS I hope you don't hold the shipper responsible for the long wait.
The shipper has no control over the amount of time it take for a package to clear customs.
At least with EMS you are able to track it as long as you received a tracking number.

Consider yourself lucky on the GP swap. From everything I have read GenShi appears to be under dosed. I am sitting on some of it myself but have decided to put off running it for now. Check the lab section on this site for some actual bloodwork on a member who ran genshi gear.
