Kratom is good business. Even in Pandemic condition,this industry still run like usual. The only things affect kratom industry is : Regulation

In September 2020,Indonesia customs tighten their shipping regulations. It affect whole kratom shipment,especially UPS shipment

We didn’t surprised about this problem. In Quarter 3 or 4 of the year,usually problem happen. There is various opinion about this problem. It’s normal. 

Different vendor has their own informant,maybe their informant is highest stake holders in indonesia customs or just an office boy? Who knows? Everyone always said they have “Insider” in Indonesia customs LOL

What Happen?

Indonesia customs stopped UPS kratom shipment. This problems is at federal / national level. Even you change your vendor,if they still using UPS,most likely they can’t ship. If they can,their shipment per day is limited

Why?

There is a few opinion around there. Here is

Extract Problem : Some people think indonesia customs stopped kratom shipment because they found extract in one of the package,and it’s triggering mass inspection. We don’t belive this,we have ship kratom extract so many times without problem in indonesia. In May our extract detained in U.S customs and kratom shipment still goes as usual.

Capsules Problem : Another weak opinion.

False Declare : It’s our opinion. I will not say it’s from our “insider” in customs. It’s pretty easy to analyze. As you know,indonesia vendor NEVER write their goods as Kratom. Everyone write it as other common herbs. It never become problem and why it’s become problem now?

We think because some country sent a diplomatic notes to Indonesia customs about this false declare. So many incoming package from indonesia which contain kratom but it declared as other herbs

Why Indonesia seller didn’t write kratom in real name? Because we can’t make kratom export permission document in LEGAL way. There is no kratom HS CODE in indonesia HS book . We need to use “back way” , i am sure you already guessing. It’s start with B word

Possible Solution

It’s really frustrating. We understand you need fast supply and sometimes it can’t be delayed. We have some good information for you,maybe you will found some solution from here :

1. Use DHL HK

Some vendor i know use DHL HK to ship. The method is collecting their order until it reach at least 100 kg and then send it to Jakarta harbour. Their freight services will ship it to Hongkong. It will arrive in Hongkong 3 days – 5 days 

After item arrives in Hongkong,freight agent will pick it and put DHL label in the box. This is good method,however waiting time will be very long. They process above 2 tons per day,i am not sure package will go out immediately upon arrives in Hongkong

Here is some notes if you want to try this way :

    • Get ready for long awaiting time
    • Check vendor terms of services. Usually you can’t cancel your order even you have wait in very long time
    • Make sure they give you delivery guarantee

2. Use Air Cargo

Air cargo still work as usual. However,you will need to buy in big quantity,around 400 Kg above. Items will declared as Mitragyna Sp , please ensure it’s perfectly legal in your country

3. Get Other Vendors

I really suggest you to get kratom near your place. So many Indonesia vendors promised their shipment will go fast like usual. We doubt it. 

4. Patiently Wait

Nothing last forever,they can’t stop kratom shipment forever. Kratom status is perfectly legal,there is no reason to ban kratom shipment forever.

Conclusion

We have start refund process,most of orders has been refunded. Thank you so much for your trust and loyalty. Don’t worry,we are not quit from this business. We will back once shipping condition back to normal and please do not ask us for another vendor reference

We are sure another vendor have good stuff too but not sure if they have good services like us. Once upon a time,we give our customers vendor references – in case we can’t serves – it ends up with our customers upset with our choice. They keep emailed us about vendor we referenced 

From now,we will not referenced anyone. Be careful,read their terms of services carefully and Good Luck

Global Pandemic Covid-19

Global Pandemic Covid-19

Regarding corona virus pandemic,we are from kratomind want to inform you what happened in Indonesia,how it affect kratom industry and kratom shipment

Regarding corona virus pandemic,we are from kratomind want to inform you what happened in Indonesia,how it affect kratom industry and kratom shipment

Kratom Shipment

1. Bulk Shipment Stopped

This is only affect whale buyers which buy in qty more than 200 Kg. We use Singapore airlines to ship in bulk,as singapore locked-down,the flight is limited and the price increased greatly,not affordable anymore

If we force to use it,they will see this as opportunity to increase the price,even when pandemic ends,their price will never go down anymore. So we – and others kratom association – decide not to use them

2. UPS and Indonesia Post Services Still Works

Both services still work as usual,although it might delayed around 1-3 days,they still deliver the goods

Updates April 2020 : Indonesia post close their services

3. Destination Country Tightened Their Customs Inspection

We have seen most country tightened their customs inspection. Shipping successful rate become lower day by day. We are considering to close shipment to some country due to high detention rate

4. DHL Works with Some Notes..

I see in someone in some forum said some farmers can ship using DHL. They are right,i want to add some notes in here. They ship it using DHL singapore

There is handling time around 10 days – 14 days before your tracking moving,because :

    • Items need to be dispatched to Singapore first. There is a flight each day to SIngapore,they only can carry maximum 500 kg kratom each day
    • Your item will be in queue,because this is the only shipment works. They got much shipping orders.
    •  Detention rate is very low. Since item comes from singapore , most destination country customs wouldn’t have thought that this is kratom
    • They only accept bulk shipment,minimum 20 kg with plastic packaging. We can’t use our standard packaging
    • Patience is needed,remember,this is the only bulk shipment method works,so all vendors use this kind of shipment right now

So..there is long process before your tracking moving. 

How We Deal with Covid-19

1. Farmers Still Work Like Usual

Our Farmers located in deep forest,there is no case about Corona in our harvesting spot. We control environment and farmers everyday

2. Strict Standard Operational Procedure

Before corona pandemic,we always applied very strict operational procedure,like wear mask,gloves,soap and hand sanitizer everywhere

3. Experienced in Disaster Condition

We active in non-profit organization called Solo Medicare. We act both as donors and volunteer. We are trained to face pandemic condition. We applied this knowledge in our works,creating very good S.O.P

What happen in Indonesia

1. City Lockdown

Most city in indonesia is lockdown. In first week of lockdown,stupid people in here still action like nothing happened. Night club still open,seems like there is nothing to worry. In the next week,most people realize corona threat is real,as the suspect is increased greatly in just one week

If you are wondered why i say city lockdown not country lockdown,it’s because indonesia government give decision to city government to decide by their own,depending on how much cases happen in their area

Current situation now : Most people following government instruction for physical distancing and wear mask when going outside. Most company following “work from home” policy

2. Panic Buying

Hmm it’s happen in all part of the world,it happen in here too. Hand sanitizer,mask become rare and price become not affordable. It’s not an issue now cause some big company has turn their production into primary stuff needed right now,like fabric company,they are producing mask and skin care company turn into hand sanitizer company

3. 90 days Lockdown

Indonesia government announced to extend quarantine time to 90 days. It means all city lockdown in indonesia will be around 90 days. Covid Rapid Test tools just arrived yesterday (when this articles writed) so we predict the suspect number will increase greatly

4. 14 Days Quarantine

The government applies quarantine policy for traveller. Even you just going to neighbour city,you’ll quarantined 14 days in some place provided by government

5. Fasting Month is Coming

In 23 April,we will enter “Fasting Month” , 30 Days fasting and then followed with very long holidays. In Fasting month,there is not much people works

6. Long Holidays and Pandemic

As we said before,after fasting months end,we will have very long holidays. When long holidays comes,all flight will very busy,causing extreme delays for shipment. Beside long holidays,we still fight with pandemic.

We believe covid cases in indonesia is not in peak yet. Before that happen,it’s much wiser to stock up now

Kratom Ban in Indonesia

Kratom Ban in Indonesia

The futures of Kratom Industry. We write current condition and predict what probably happen next

2020 is a year when kratom start shining to non-U.S country,such as Czech,Brazil,and Europe. As it become more famous,the government preparing strong regulation to regulate kratom

On this articles,we summarize what happen in ends of 2019. If we hear another news,we will update it

JUNE 2019

Indonesia government,represented by Drug Enforcement Administration Indonesia (BNN) plan to categorize kratom as class 1 narcotic, In order to put kratom into class 1 drug,they need support from other government department,like health and food department and council support

In the same month,indonesia customs department hold all item categorized as herbs in departure gateway. They inspecting all packages and find HS Code violation

This violation makes carrier like FeDex,DHL,UPS get some punishment. They are not able to ship item categorized as herbs from now

In this month,all shipment goes like Russian roulette,some item departed smoothly,most item detained by indonesian customs

JULY 2019

Shipment resumed with notes : We only can use Indonesia post and EMS. EMS are global post company and their operator in indonesia is Indonesia Post (In U.S they work with USPS)

Carrier like DHL are not willing to ship kratom again. Accused with HS Code violation law are big problem for them.

AUGUST 2019 – SEPTEMBER 2019

Our government still work behind the scene to ban kratom. We might get surprised later. Current condition is news company like Vice,BCC,Kompas,CNN are writing about kratom and his controversy

JANUARY 2020

We have 5 years time to switch our crops from kratom into common plant like corn,soy,and vegetables

Our Prediction

We believe 5 years time to change kratom plantation into vegetables plantation is just political tactics. Before kratom famous,Borneo people very depended on rubber,and rubber didn’t give us much income. Most people in borneo lives in poverty

Situation changed when kratom booming. We can lives well using kratom. Restricting kratom will triggering protest in Borneo. You can’t kill people’s livelihood without providing equal solution

If the government decide to fully legalize kratom,opposition will use this as amunition,use it as propaganda,make false news like “Current government legalize narcotics plant”

Both are unpopular choice. The best choice is give 5 years windows for farmers to switch their crops,and let next president to decide 🙂
