5.Mailing options

Regardless of which company you have chosen for your shipment, you can decide to send your parcel by ship, train or plane. It is important to note that the mode of transport chosen will determine the  shipping duration (one month or more by ship, 3 weeks by train, 1/2 weeks by air) and, of course, the amount of the service.

If these shipping durations seem too long to you, you can also choose the express formula. In most cases, your parcel would arrive in a few days.

Price comparison:

For Example, from Shanghai to Paris (France), a basic shipment of a parcel composed of documents (500 g) of value 50 Yuan would have the respective charges:

EMS : 220 yuan 
Fedex : 351.33 yuan
 TNT : 287 yuan
 UPS : 484.08 yuan
