International shipping can sometimes seem daunting, since each country has its own rules and regulations to follow. This is especially true when it comes to shipping to Brazil — customs forms can be complicated, and there can be delays in clearance, high shipping costs and a lack of visibility overall.
What’s more, the Brazilian Postal Service (Correios) can be unpredictable. For example, its workers were recently on strike, calling for wage adjustments and the preservation of health insurance.
But, there’s good news. Endicia Global Service™ is a reliable option for U.S.-based businesses wanting to avoid extra delays whenever there is a strike.
That’s because Endicia Global Service is NOT affected if the Brazilian Postal Service goes on strike. Packages shipped via Endicia Global Service are cleared by customs in one day, and then our partner, SkyPostal, chooses the best delivery method available — whether it’s Correios or another Brazilian delivery service. So, during strikes like these, SkyPostal works with other carriers to ensure that packages shipped with Endicia Global Service won’t face any delays and will continue to arrive at their destination within eight to 10 days of the original ship date, as promised!
Just a reminder, Endicia Global Service is a program aimed at eliminating the hassles associated with international shipping to Latin America. The service allows users to take advantage of affordable networks, while also offering important services such as address validation, end-to-end tracking, and the option to pay duties and taxes upfront.
With Endicia Global Service, sellers and buyers have no need to worry about their shipments to and from Latin America arriving on time, even when there’s a wrench (or a strike) thrown into the works.
