GlobalPost Upgrades Standard International Shipping Service, Increasing Weight Limit to 70 lbs. and Door-to-Door Tracking to Over 200 Countries
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- GlobalPost, the industry leader in affordable, innovative international shipping services, has announced significant upgrades to its popular GlobalPost Standard Service. These upgrades include an increased package weight limit from 4.4 lbs. to 70 lbs. and expanded door-to-door tracking capabilities from 36 countries to over 200 countries. All other current features of GlobalPost Standard remain in place including free coverage, an easy claims process and electronic customs forms.
In addition to these features, GlobalPost also offers international small parcel delivery at discounted shipping rates. This has become more critical than ever since many postal carriers were forced to increase their international rates on July 1, 2020 due to the Universal Postal Union changes. Leveraging their global delivery network, GlobalPost customers did not see a rate increase on July 1 for their cross-border shipments.
