What is Commercial ePacket (CeP)? It’s a relatively new service from the United States Postal Service that provides door to door tracking to 28 countries (adding BRAZIL 9/28/15)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 30-50% over what you’d pay for postage alone. 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 September 28, 2015):
Australia, Belgium, Brazil (starting 9/28/15), Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland
How do customers use the service? You must be using Endicia Professional shipping software to print the unique CeP label shown above. IMS is able to fully integrate with your account to facilitate the package data transfer. Once enabled, you can begin using the service immediately. 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 through your Endicia account. 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 5-10 day delivery for up to 50% off the cost of First Class Pkg Intl postage alone. Your savings will vary by destination country, weight, and overall volume.
