For existing orders, Emerald has really stepped up and absorbed the considerable extra cost of using UPS and their side channel through Customs to reduce delivery delays. At some point I would expect that normal shipping will go back to parcel post again. You might be able to opt for UPS and pay the difference.
My last Emerald prior to the X30 spent three weeks in US Customs and I was then hit with a $238 bill for "Customs Fees." I'd pay the extra for UPS any day depending on the cost.
