I can think of two reasons why goods may get delayed by Customs. One is the value of the goods and whether or not they consider that import duty is payable in the destination country by the recipient. MM have always affixed the standard Customs Declaration to my orders showing their value. As a matter of interest, what is the value of the parts you have ordered?
Two is the contents, and whether they are permitted by the destination country's Postal Service. Lithium Polymer batteries for example are now being added to the "banned" list of some Postal Services. Have you ordered a lot of batteries?
I am sure that if the package was returned for a specific reason then it would be in their interests to remedy the problem before they resent it.
