If your company deals with customers overseas, you need to offer them a range of service options to fulfill their needs. Your reputation depends on being able to provide flexible, predictable, and cost-effective services, and Global Express is a value-added service you can’t do without.

As one of the fastest ways you can ship items internationally, Global Express allows you to solve many problems for your customers, so working with a 3PL that offers this service is always in your best interest.

Please, fill out the information for the Packing List in the following form so we can revise it and send a quote based on your specific needs.

What Kinds of Items Can Be Shipped Through Global Express?

Not everything you ship will be a good fit for Global Express. Because of the nature of the service, there are size and weight restrictions that must be met.

Additionally, some hazardous materials and items will not qualify. As a general rule, items that cannot legally be shipped within the US cannot be shipped internationally. Since each country has its own restrictions, it’s vital to speak to your shipper directly if there is any question.

If you were to send items through the post office, you would be responsible for finding out this information yourself—and might be liable for costs should the shipment be rejected at the destination. Working with an experienced 3PL like DTS helps you avoid these complexities; we will work with you to ensure your shipments comply so you can be confident they will arrive as expected.

In general, here are the weight and size requirements for Global Express:

  • Cardboard packages:

    Maximum dimensions: 24 “x 24” x 24 “.
    Maximum weight: 40 pounds

  • Consolidated pallets:

    Maximum dimensions: 48 “x 40” x 36 “
    Maximum weight: 350 pounds

For multiple shipments, items are palletized for safety and to optimize space. However, we offer containers for larger items to ensure the contents are not damaged in transit.

Pricing is based on several factors, and we tailor each quote to your specific needs and service requirements. Please call or fill out our online form to request a quote for Global Express shipping. We’d love to answer any questions you have and show you how we can help.
