Finding cheap international shipping service can be tough. Some just use local shipping services that use lesser means of travel to get your packages sent. But there are often complications that arise with these shipping services.
Some of these cheaper services wont provide you with a tracking number or code for your package. This can be a real problems for some countries where lost packages are normal. Most people dont feel like risking their packages so these arent viable options for lengthy international shipping.
The better, and coincidently larger, companies often offer the better tracking services including a tracking number. This is no accident considering that larger companies will often be international anyway, so they wont be handing off your package to another service, which is what most smaller shipping companies are forced to do.
So a streamlined service that doesnt exchange hands with other companies is a huge plus, but it isnt the only thing. Certain larger shipping carriers offer poor delivery times, often weeks later than the aforementioned delivery date, so this can also be a factor for some shipping orders.
Just dont be caught with a sub quality shipping carrier service delivering your packages. It may not even end up in the right hands.
