What is Commercial ePacket (CeP)? It’s a relatively new service from the United States Postal Service that provides door to door tracking to 36 countries (as of 2/11/18) with more being added. The service is only available for small packages containing merchandise and weighing 4.4 lbs or less.
HUGE SAVINGS! Compared to First Class Package International (FCPI), our all-inclusive rate for CeP will save you 50% or more. Your savings will vary by piece weight and destination country. This is a mere fraction of what you’d pay for other trackable services like PMEI and PMI.
Countries served (effective 2/11/18):
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland
How do customers use the service? IMS can integrate with the most popular types of shipping software to print the unique CeP labels and facilitate the package data transfer. Once enabled (usually takes a week or less), you can begin using the service immediately. For most integrations, there's no cost or revenue obligation to the customer. IMS will sort your packages by country and apply our permit imprint to pay for postage.
What can you send? You can send packages weighing up to 4.4 lbs with a value of $400 or less. The packages must be rectangular in shape and the total of length, height, and thickness cannot exceed 36″ (not greater than 24″ in length alone). Minimum size is 6″ x 3″ x 1/4″.
Tracking packages: The USPS tracking number sequences are preassigned. When you generate an order or package label, the “LX” prefixed number appears on your manifest and shipping label so you can pass this on to your customers immediately. Packages can be tracked direct from USPS.com.
What is the cost? You get tracking and 5-6 day delivery (worldwide average) with savings of 50% or more off the cost of First Class Pkg Intl postage alone. Your savings will vary by destination country, weight, and overall volume.
