Mailing Weavings to US

Post by MrCharlie » Tue Apr 11, 2017 8:07 am

Any idea how to mail some weavings to the US? DHL seems very expensive.

I know this is not an easy thing to do, but I thought I would ask. Thanks.

If you have a full container, I'm sure ocean shipping is available.

For something smaller, King Express charges US$10/lb. to ship from Guatemala City to Los Angeles by air. They also have cheap ocean shipping of LCL aka "grupaje maritimo" or "contenedor compartido" from Los Angeles to your door in Guatemala, so they may know who, if anyone, has a like service in the other direction.

Probably the bus companies in Mexico have package service, so you could put a package on the bus in Tapachula and have someone pick it up in Monterey.
