    Hi,

    I'm going to be needing to send some parcels in the next couple of months to the US - B2C - probably about 300 over a couple of months - 3.5kg 45cmx12x23cm. The usual accounts I use (transglobal/parcelbroker/parcel2go) are all showing £30 plus per parcel.

    Anyone regularly sending parcels to the US in that kind of weight?Does anyone have any other options that aren't obvious (on Google!) they use to get the pricing down a bit?

    Thanks!

    If you have a royal mail account, worth speaking to an account manager.

    In your case for the couriers its the volume bringing the price up. No chance of reducing size?

    Or could you send a pallet to a fulfilment company in the US and have them post the items via USPS?

    Hi Mr D,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Pallet - could be a good long term solution as I already have a fulfilment warehouse in the US but this is kind of a limited edition stock so really needs to go one by one from the UK

    I might be able to reduce to 42cmx16cmx27cm but doubt that would make much difference.

    Thanks!
