Thai Post Office: EMS World vs ePacket...can somebody explain details ?


Recommended Posts

I am going to be shipping small packages to CHina on a regular basis from Thailand and looking for the best economy possible.

 

I checked the Thai Post Office but can not get details on EMS World rates vs ePacket rates.  This is what I got for a 300 gram package:

Obviously, the "epacket" rate" looks like a bargain compared with the "EMS World" rate but I'm not sure what the difference between the two are, or if the ePacket rate has restrictions.

 

There must be a BIG difference between the two for the prices to be so different.  Can anybody clarify?

ePacket has a weight limit of 2kg

 

Otherwise just ship by ePacket. The parcels arrive relatively fast. ePacket and EMS are loaded in the same plane anyway. No difference whatsoever.

Sounds like you've used ePacket before, and good point about EMS and ePacket getting loaded on the same planes.  That makes sense but I'm guessing the epackets get bumped if there is not enough room.  No big deal though, as long as it is not the proverbial " slow boat to China " 🙂

 

240 THB is a great deal compared with FedEx's rip-off rates!
