UPS/FedEx/DHL no longer accept compressed bags as inner packaging
Almost all courier companies no longer accept shipments that are compressed using compression bags.
This may be because of the following reasons:
1. In order to facilitate the inspection of the goods, avoid undeclared products (especially goods that violate the embargo regulations)
2. To avoid damage of the outer packaging during transportation.
3. It may not be possible to restore the original packaging after customs inspection, so they will be replaced with larger packaging, which will generate additional bills.
High shipping costs due to wars and exchange rate changes
Due to the turmoil and energy shortage caused by the Russian-Ukrainian war, the fuel surcharge rate of express delivery companies has risen to nearly 50% in May.
