When you ship internationally with EMS, the domestic leg of the journey will be provided by a local courier, such as FedEx, so you can drop off your package at your local FedEx store.
Once you've dropped off your package, FedEx will then transport it to a freight forwarding depot, where it will be sorted and shipped to its destination country. The final delivery is made by the destination country’s local postal service.
When you book an express mail service with Parcel Monkey, you’ll be provided with a shipping label to print and attach to your package, along with any necessary customs documents. The shipping label will have two parts to it – one part shows the address for the sorting depot and the other part shows the destination address. Please ensure the label and customs documents are securely attached to your package.
Will my package be tracked?
EMS is a tracked mail service so your parcel will be tracked, however, tracking updates won’t be as frequent as a fully tracked courier service.
For express mail tracking, you can track your EMS delivery via the Parcel Monkey tracking tool. Simply enter your PMS reference number into our tracking tool to see the progress of your package.
The cost of EMS shipping will vary depending on where you’re shipping to and the size and weight of your package, but our discounted EMS shipping rates are lower than if you book direct, making EMS a popular choice, particularly for small packages and low-value items.
To find out how much it will cost to ship your package with EMS, add the dimensions and weight of your packaged item into our shipping calculator. You’ll be able to see an instant quote and compare prices with other reputable courier companies.
