Our own shipping network is connected to forwarders and shipping service providers on an international level. Therefore, the many advantages of Mail Boxes Etc. also apply to shipments outside Germany. Whether you are sending large parcels or parcels with special dimensions, we will find the fastest and cheapest as well as safest way to realize this for you.
We use a detailed tracking system for your shipment. So you can track at any time where the parcel is and when it will be delivered. This option is particularly relevant for important special shipments.
Filling out a parcel label with the addresses of the sender and the recipient sounds simple at first. However, especially for international shipments, addressing the package can become more complex, as some countries use different addressing systems for domestic shipments.
Did you know? In Asia - unlike Western countries - addresses are written from the largest unit to the smallest unit. For example, an address in China or South Korea would have the following structure for domestic shipping:
Postal addresses are defined internationally according to ISO and Universal Postal Union standards. If you have a recipient address in a different format, we will be happy to help you rewrite the address according to international standards. Contact us by phone or discuss this personally with our MBE staff on site at a location near you.
During the shipping process, automated handling by machines may occur at various points. In order to be able to read and assign correctly here, it is important that the data for addressing is complete and legible. If required, we can create printed shipping labels for you on site.
Info: We are also happy to assist you in filling out the customs papers and any other documents you may need. We will take care of the formalities of the shipping process and offer advice on all the steps.
The right packaging for packages and parcels of any size is relevant for the entire shipping process. On the one hand, the contents are protected from damage during shipping. On the other hand, however, the shipping instruments as well as the personnel are also protected. The right packaging facilitates the handling of the shipments to be transported and thus makes logistics safer and more efficient.
If you want to send a parcel and use standard parcel shipping for this, it must comply with the respective shipping specifications in terms of size, shape and weight. For example, no parts should stick out separately and protrude from the package. In this case, the shipment is considered a special shipment and additional costs will be incurred.
As of a total weight of 30 kg, shipping by forwarding agent or pallet shipping usually applies. Find out in detail about the options available to you here. We also offer individual solutions for large and heavy packages.
A sturdy parcel box is an excellent choice for transporting the contents safely. Alternatively, there is also the option of using special transport boxes, which are well suited for shipping glass, for example.
The contents themselves should be securely wrapped and possibly additionally packed. Any cavities in the package should be filled. Filling materials such as bubble cushions, corrugated cardboard rolls or packing silk are suitable here.
For safe transportation, the package is sealed with sturdy adhesive tape. Any open sides are taped to further strengthen the stability of the package. If necessary, the packages can be provided with warning labels for shipping, for example, if there are glassware inside.
Tip: Use the comprehensive service of Mail Boxes Etc. also to have your packaging for packages individually designed. For companies shipping goods, high quality designed packaging can become an important part of the marketing concept.
