NOTES:
  • - The price comparisons were made on 15th April, 2014, using information published on each cross-border shipper’s website.
  • - The quoted shipping prices (in US dollars) are based on the exact product descriptions stated above.
  • - Volumetric Weight (dimensional weight or “billable weight”) calculations have been applied, using the exact stated weight and dimensions. Volumetric weight calculations apply to all international air shipments and are used by all of the above shippers. (See Volumetric Weight FAQ).
  • - Merchants sometimes include “bubble wrap” or filler in their packaging; some – but not all – items can be repacked to reduce the Volumetric Weight. The other shippers’ repacking services may not be identical to Borderlinx’s (See Repacking Service FAQ and Repacking Service page)
  • - The shipping prices quoted above exclude fuel surcharges, insurance, duty, and tax. For many destination countries, duty is calculated on a "CIF" basis (Cost+Insurance+Freight); hence a lower shipping cost will often result in lower amounts of duty and tax.
  • - The figures quoted are intended to provide an “apples for apples” comparison of Borderlinx’s shipping prices with prices charged by other shipping services. Due to a number of variables (e.g., the specific product within categories such as auto parts or luggage, merchant packaging, the repacking service), the price quotations are not guaranteed for actual shipments.
