The Revolution of Ecommerce Shipments!

ePacket is one of the most popular delivery methods in the world. This shipment is widely used in Asian countries, especially in China and Hong Kong and is believed to be one of the fastest and safest delivery methods to send products internationally.

Few years back, most products bought from China were delivered by sea, which meant your packages could take up to 8 weeks, at least! This was particularly difficult for drop shipping companies since it was much harder to keep the “blind shipping” strategy. How is it possible that the client believes we deliver our products from the same country if it takes more than two months to get the product? Luckily, ePacket ensures that most orders will arrive to destination within 30 days. Actually, most of these packages will arrive few days earlier than the tracking data suggests!

What is ePacket Delivery?

ePacket Delivery is born from a cooperation between the US Postal Service (USPS) and Hong Kong Post. This service is intented to facilitate the international ecommerce sales between China and other countries, mostly western countries. ePacket Delivery has not only made the transaction between countries much easier, but it has also increase hugely the speed of the deliveries of international shipments.

ePacket Delivery is specially designed for small packages weighing less than 2 kg and that have a declared value of less than $400.

What are the Benefits of Using ePacket?

As you may have noticed, ePacket suggest that this delivery method was designed for ecommerce businesses. The main benefit from ePacket delivery to ecommerce stores is that is one of the fastest, safest and cheapest delivery methods there are to get shipments from China with low custom risks.

Over the last few years, ePacket Delivery has been the favorite shipping method of millions of users around the world. While it started as a special service for the United States, nowadays ePacket Delivery is available in dozens of countries around the world. The growth of this shipping method has been exponential, and this clearly notes the success of this new logistic system.

ePacket Delivery was born from the failure of its predecessor, the called China EMS. China EMS was a previous shipping method aimed for Chinese ecommerce that were selling internationally. However, the shipping times were too long and did never get to be entirely welcomed by western users. Since any other alternative for international shipments was not available at the time, ePacket Delivery found there a great opportunity they did not let go.

The ePacket China is one of the reasons why drop shipping businesses have grown so fast over the last few years too. It was usually said that drop shipping was not a realistic option because shipping fees were extremely high and delivery times were ridiculous.
