Shipping to the USA

I have a consignment of two boxes, each weighing about 20kg, going to
the same address in the USA.

Any suggestions for the most cost effective way of getting them there in a timely manner? I know that Fedex or DHL will do it, but wondered if there are any better value alternatives?

Try the PO, occasionally they come up trumps.

John,

We ship all our boxes using interparcel (www.interparcel.co.uk) unless you have a high volume account with DHL/FedEx/UPS etc this will prove much cheaper. Parcel2go offer a similar "brokerage/screenscraper" service but I found their customer service rude and unhelpful when stuff went wrong (whereas interparcel's have been fine on the rare occassion there was an issue).

For USA also worth looking at www.wedelivertheworld.co.uk (aka Fast Lane Couriers). They link in to DHL and other services.

Be sure to put both on the same AWB. That way you only have one clearance charge.

Went with Fedex via Interparcel in the end.

Thanks!
