I just realised today that CGW charges 0.5kg minimum for any package. I have 4 t-shirts orders and they only weigh 0.2kg each but all under seperate delivery, so I incurred an additional 0.3kgx4 (1.2kg) worth of shipping charges
Does anybody know what are the shipping charges are like for the other forwarders and if they have any minimum weight per package?
This is the basic thing.
A lot of courier co charged u by PER package received. so if u order from amazon n they ship 10items in 5 boxes. good luck. U will have to pay ALL 5 boxes shipping charges, based on volumetric/ dead weight, whichever is higher
another thing mentioned by me before
like i have 2 packages,
lets say after the dead weight or volumetric, the exact weight (heavier ones) is...
package1 - 2.1kg
package2 - 2.9kg
Borderlinx will charge as 2.1 + 2.9 THEN total round UP to nearest 0.5kg = 5kg
If it happened to be 5.1kg they charge as 5.5kg
its becomes 2.5kg + 3kg = 5.5Kg
Not only so... these r other differences
BL no need pay insurance
CGW/HopshopGo need to pay for own insurance
