Our international ePacket service enables you to send those lightweight packets with the speed and transparency that all eCommerce customers demand. You can also book Light Packet shipping online via the Parcel Monkey marketplace to arrange a delivery to friends or family who live overseas.
When you book a package in with Light Packet international it will be collected from the comfort of your own home or even your work address, so all you will need to do is complete the simple routine of packing your box, to ensure it is protected when being shipped overseas and print the label out from your Parcel Monkey account. Then attach all the relevant customs documents provided by us and hand it over to the courier, who will come and collect on the day of your choice.
When your package is collected in the USA by the premium courier FedEx, the tracking will go live and you can follow the package to our freight forwarding warehouse. Here the package will be sorted and dispatched to the destination you have chosen to ship to. The USPS then deliver your shipment to the recipient in the final location.
Do I get access to the package tracking?
Our Light Packet rate allows you to track shipments all the way to your recipient's door via the Parcel Monkey tracking tool and comes with free protection cover up to the value of $22. The final mile delivery agent, USPS, is part of the Prime Initiative, which encourages more visibility from the couriers, so you can see every scan made on your package for ultimate clarity of where your package is during despatch and delivery. Of course being able to track a package is important for those who are shipping eBay items or something from a small business so the recipient can be aware of when the goods will arrive.
