ePacket Carrier Info & Tips
With great development in e-commerce, many sellers were seeking a proper solution for delivering. China EMS has decided to develop an ePacket option. It is very simple and convenient to use.
Benefits of ePacket
While buying some goods from abroad many customers want to receive them as soon as possible. As ePacket packages are limited in size, they are convenient for transportation by different means. Therefore, delivery companies do not need to worry about the suitable transport for the package and it can be delivered very quickly.
Many large delivery companies are expensive when you need to deliver something very fast. In most cases, they are using large transport for delivery. Thus, small packages are not very convenient for them and it expensive. With ePacket, the prices are far lower as they aim most on small packages and fast delivery.
Track Package to Doors
The ePacket tracking system allows clients to check the delivery status until the moment the addressee gets packages at home. Thus, you can be sure that delivery is accomplished.
Every year many goods are lost in the delivery process. For sellers, it is a huge loss as they simply lose their goods without receiving any income. However, it is what does not happen with ePacket. Every undelivered good always returns to the sender.
Every package for international delivery goes through the customs. Any responsibility for customs, additional fees, and taxed rely on the addressee.
Specifications Of ePacket Packages
One of the reasons why ePacket delivery is very effective is its limitations. They allow to increase the efficiency of transportation due to proper space management, which allows even small local couriers to deliver a package to every house.
In the beginning, you should keep in mind the maximum weight. For every package, it is 4.4lbs (2kg). It includes:
- Packing box;
- Filling stuff;
- Everything else that influences weight.
Only when sending something to Israel you are allowed to put something heavier up to 6.6lbs (3kg).
Size matters for ePacket. If the item is smaller, senders add more filler to protect the item in the larger box.
- Length 14cm;
- Width 11cm.
- One side should not exceed 60cm;
- All sides together should not exceed 90cm.
How to track an ePacket from China?
Since ePacket as a service is a product of USPS and China Post working together, you can use any of those sites to track your ePacket parcel. But of course, you should still use Parcelous to do that, since we offer a lot of small yet powerful pieces of functionality to improve your parcel tracking experience.
Every package of ePacket has a personal tracking number. In case you are shipping many packages, you can always track each one separately. The ePacket tracking number consists of 13 characters. The initial and last two are letters, while in the middle are digits. ePacket tracking numbers are similar to China Post EMS tracking numbers, but they start with letter "L" (however "LF" and "LH" starting letters are used by airmail) and end with letters "CN". Therefore, you may have the following samples:
