When arranging for your parcels to be shipped internationally, it’s important to find a company that offers the perfect blend of features, making the experience seamless and enjoyable.

You may be wondering which precise features to look for. Fear not; we’re here to help! In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the qualities to expect from an outstanding international courier.


Costs
A first-class shipping company will always be honest and up-front about the cost of their services. Nobody wants to be met with an unanticipated bill when the postman arrives. It’s important, therefore, to choose a shipping service that provides total cost transparency. Even better, select one that offers a duty delivery paid (DDP) facility, so that local charges are taken care of before your shipment enters the country. Once you’ve made your payment, sit back, relax, and wait for your packages to arrive!


Speed
Don’t settle for snail mail! Look for a shipping company that can deliver to your door within a reasonable timeframe, ideally 24-48 hours. The most innovative companies will negotiate an exclusive express shipping service with their courier partners.


Reliability
It’s crucial to have confidence in your shipping company. After all, they are taking care of your precious purchases! Check impartial feedback online, and only choose a service that carries a strong reputation for reliability.


Package consolidation
To help you save on shipping costs, customer-focused companies will offer complimentary consolidation of packages. This allows you to bundle several parcels together and ship them in one go, rather than incurring the financial and administrative burden of sending them individually. The best companies will also look after your parcels until you’re ready to ship them.


Tracking
When you’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of a package, it’s frustrating to be in the dark about its progress! That’s why it’s so important to select a shipping company that offers free tracking and updates on your parcel’s journey. Take away the guessing game and choose a service that keeps you up to speed.


Direct delivery
It’s no fun to wait in a line at the post office! Opt instead for a shipping company that provides the VIP treatment you deserve. Direct delivery is faster and more convenient than the rigmarole of coordinating with a sorting office, and it’s a feature to look for when choosing the perfect shipping service.


Customer service
Underpinning everything that a shipping company does is its commitment to customer service. Again, do some research online to find out which companies provide consistent, helpful assistance. It’s another feature that instils confidence, and a reputable company should always take it seriously.
