Shipping Rates

Prices of the shipping from the US are a very important factor when deciding whether to use some forwarder or not. Below, we have added Planet Express rates as an example. Comparing these prices with Borderlinx doesn’t make sense due to Borderlinx closedown.

The more expensive methods like DHL Worldwide Express, FedEx Priority, and FedEx Economy, are suitable for those that want to enjoy the content of the package as soon as possible. The cheaper delivery methods are excellent ‘budget’ options if you don’t need your package as quickly.
