Light Packet is one of our ePacket shipping services, specially designed to help businesses and individuals ship small packets internationally for an affordable price.
Whether you’re an eCommerce business shipping light packets to customers overseas or you’re shipping a small gift to a friend or family member outside the US, you can save money on your delivery costs by booking the Parcel Monkey Light Packet service via our shipping calculator.
Light Packet is a parcel drop-off service, which means you’ll be able to drop off your packet at your nearest FedEx location at a time that’s convenient for you. All you need to do is package your item and print and attach your shipping label (along with any relevant customs documents). You will be provided with two shipping labels. One for the central sort location in the US and one for the final destination. Print and attach both labels before dropping off your light packet.
FedEx will take your packet to a central sorting facility where it will be shipped overseas by USPS.
How long does Light Packet take?
Estimated delivery time is 10-16 business days to major locations, but this will vary depending on where you're shipping from and to.
