Recently some discussion of international
shipping was going on. Here is my
shipping track from a Fedex package I just received from Thailand. Flat
rate $15 service.
Was this 3-day? I had a Ultra 30 shipped to me from the UK once,
"priority overnight", and it actually took two days, due to the
customs issue. Box had big "OPENED BY US CUSTOMS" stickers all
over it. FedEx told me they dont guarantee overnight from other
countries due to this issue.
My package was a pre metered Fedex envelope with $192 of spinel gemstones,
Fedex intl priority, and it was claimed to me here in 2 to 3 days. Looks
like it skipped through customs without a squeak. It had a ziplock bag on
the front though with all the docs etc. I don't see how from the distance
etc. they could hope to beat the 36 hour transit time I had though.
