    Hi all
    I came to this forum while searching on google for economic / business / marketing / finances topics forums. Im not sure if anyone is able to answer my question but I think I might be on correct place from where I could get pointed to some more appropriate location.

    Does anyone know perhaps if exist any application (no matter if desktop or web) where I could calculate the approximate (or exact) shipping time for any kind of letter/package shipped on any way (note: there are several ways of shipping) for ALL countries on earth? For example: What approximate (or exact) shipping time would be if shipping from X to Y country where X and Y can be ANY country? If application would have an option of choosing city then it would be even better but not needed. Instead of application, it could be also some kind of tables or anything but not books because they would be most likely outdated and I need updated datas. I cannot ask on the local post office due to obvious reasons: they will know just about approximate (or exact) shipping time FROM or TO our country and won't even care about other countries. For sure they won't care whats happening on the other side of the earth and how much does the shipping time takes. I repeat that Im asking for post offices and not shipping services as fedex / ups etc.

    If you aren't sure or don't know: where else could I ask the same question?

    I'd say a better place to start would be the post office. Don't ask me why but something tells me they would have the information you're looking for.
    Just a thought.

    I asked and they don't and cannot have the information.. How could they know what is happening on another continent thousands of kms away between two ''unknown'' countries? I got an answer similar to this question.

    Why don't you get a large crate and mail yourself to Tehran. Report back as to how long it takes.

    Thanks

    Honestly, what you are looking for does not exist, for a multitude of reasons.

    Oh and I have a question. Why do you want this information?

    Ringel05 I was asking for shipping time calculator and not price calculator. I think you haven't understood the question. Also I was asking from X country to Y country where both two variables equal to ANY country to earth. But on your link is this just Y country. X is always USA. That doesn't answer the question. Assuming to the google search (257 countries on earth) I am looking for 66049 updated datas (257 * 257 = from any country can be shipped to any other one).
    You asked me why would I need this. Its for business purposes of developing the software. So I can pass up the information to hired programmer.

    I am aware that I might came to the wrong forum butI would appreciate, if anyone knows, the recommendation where else should I ask.
