With great pleasure we announce that we have found a new and even quicker way to transport goods to the USA. In the last months, we have piloted cooperation with the carrier FedEx – and the result is here! You will find below all the information required to send shipments to the USA.
Starting from 459 CZK
D + 5
Newly Send Larger Shipments!
We will deliver your shipments without exceptions to all states in the USA including Hawaii, also in record time within three days of your shipment submission! A great benefit compared to the former solution for America is that you can newly send shipments weighing up to 10 kg, not the max. of 2 kg as it used to be in the past.
How to Calculate the Weight of Shipments?
The weight of all shipments to the USA will be calculated volumetrically. It is the standard procedure of airfreight and unfortunately, it is beyond our capabilities to change it. The formula for the calculation is as follows: width x length x height of shipment in cm / 5000.
Why ship to the USA with Packeta?
We deliver to all states
Up to 10 kg of shipment
First, it is necessary to fill in the Contract of Indirect Representation in Customs Clearance and Authorization Tax Management, which you may download here. It is also necessary to state your allocated EORI number. The filled in and signed document shall be sent to the emails:
In subject state: FedEx authorization – the name of your online shop
Customs clearance of shipments and processing of the customs declaration is included in the price of freight. Shipments are cleared in postal mode. Export documents will be provided to you upon request directly by FedEx at the e-mail address: CZexport.GTS@fedex.com
List of Forbidden Goods
Sending to the USA also has its limitations and the list of things which are forbidden to transport are quite extensive. Before sending shipments, it is, therefore, necessary to check if your goods are excluded from transport. The full list of forbidden goods can be found on the following link.
The Format of Shipment ZIP Codes
FedEx requires a special format of ZIP codes for delivering shipments, without which it will not be possible to deliver shipments. It is the combination of state code and a 5-digit ZIP number, which has the following format: “AA 12345” (for example, UT 84005 = shipment heading to Utah).
COVID-19 Airfreight surcharge
In the period of the coronavirus crisis, the shipper charges a fee for all shipments which is associated with airfreight costs. The particular division of the supplementary charge and the breakdown of prices according to weight categories can be found in the complete price list.
It is good to know that: it is not possible to send C.O.D. shipments to the USA via FedEx.
