Why Use Wacpack?

WacPack endeavours to provide a more personal courier and freight service that is designed to deliver your shipments worldwide quicker - by using direct flights, and by providing flexible services that meet your requirements.

Wacpack also aims to save you money – we don’t charge a fuel surcharge, we discount rates for samples, and don’t charge extra for billing the receiver. Our tariffs and services have features specially aimed at Asian producers and their overseas customers – e.g.: – flexible billing options that exclude consignee billing surcharges – many of the overseas customers are already Wacnet customers and can be billed directly, and – lower rates for low-value samples – the integrators charge sample shipments at the same rate as high-value shipments, when high-value shipments are often subjected to additional formal clearance procedures. Unlike the large integrators, we do not have our own staff worldwide, but we can still serve the world and be price-, and service-, competitive by providing a personal service at key points, and by using the best airlines and transportation wholesalers around the globe.

You will automatically be advised via email that a shipment is coming, or that the shipment has been delivered. Tracking information is also available.

What Can I Send Through WacPack?
  

Wacpack is a multi-modal logistics company, and therefore handles most types of shipment.
