Expedited shipping means the package will be sent via a fast courier service such as with DHL or FedEx, whilst you can also get expedited shipping via the USPS using their premium delivery services such as Priority Mail.
If you book expedited shipping, the package will be shipped more quickly as your items will be prioritized over other items, making it ideal for important or time-sensitive shipments.
Parcel Monkey allows our customers to book expedited shipping for a discounted rate through our shipping calculator to ensure it is affordable for those who need an expedited courier for posting parcels in the domestically or internationally.
How long does expedited shipping take?
Expedited shipping for those with a package to be delivered in the same country can expect delivery as quickly as the Next Day. Expedited services can ensure your package is delivered the very next morning using services such as USPS Priority Express, available to book through our shipping calculator.
Domestic expedited shipping improves delivery speed as it beats the standard shipping time of three or more working days, so any Overnight or Express shipping service can be considered expedited.
Expedited shipping to overseas destinations obviously takes a little longer but you can book expedited couriers to handle international delivery in 1-2 days using premium express couriers such as DHL Express.
Cheaper international expedited delivery services take 2-5 days and more often than not they will arrive in a shipping time closer to 2 days to major locations, making them great value for money.

What is the difference between standard and expedited shipping?
Standard shipping services are where your package will be sent at a normal rate using Ground services or tracked mail solutions, whereas expedited deliveries are sent quickly using the fastest possible methods, making it more useful for retailers or small businesses who need to get their items shipped quickly.
You pay a little extra for expedited shipping service, but the service is premium and more speedy. Not all packages required expedited shipping, you can often save on shipping costs using more economical tracked mail or ground shipping methods, especially for heavy items.
Expedited shipping tracking
When you book a premium expedited courier service, you will be able to track your package in full. There will be multiple scans on the package as it goes through various steps on its way to delivery, so you can share this information with the recipient to improve customer experience.
The Parcel Monkey shipment number can be used on our site and we will show all the tracking events the couriers report back to us, whilst you can also take a note of the tracking number on the shipping labels and track directly on the courier website.
How much is expedited shipping?
Expedited shipping costs will vary depending on which courier you choose to book, how quickly the item will get delivered and where you are shipping to. You can get multiple shipping prices in seconds via our shipping calculator and you can then see which expedited service suits your budget and required transit times.
