We all know that international shipping can cost us an arm and a leg, so finding suitable shipping partners that can guarantee a cost-effective shipping rate and hassle-free shipping transactions can help you greatly. 

Additionally, when you provide fast and reliable service with the help of your shipping partners, it can also add to your credibility as an online seller. Nonetheless, what is the most credible and cheapest international shipping company? We are here to assist you, so scroll down to know more. 

The Shipping Partners

What's good about Stallion Express is it allows its users to have the freedom to choose the most suitable shipping option for them. They can opt to choose the cheapest way to send their items from different services, including the Canada post. Furthermore, they even have an option for express shipping within Canada too. Suppose that didn’t convince you yet,  Stallion’s international shipping allows you to bring your services globally, and they are partnered with APC Logistics and *PostNL to help you make this happen.

Rates

While shipping rates vary according to the destination of your parcels, they can still be expensive. However, Stallion Express offers competitive rates that allow its users to save up to 85%.

You can get a rough estimation of the amount you need to pay using the Stallion Express shipping calculator. You need to put in the basic information, including the place of departure, destination, zip code, package type, and weight. However, we can provide you with some digits to set as an example to give you some ideas. 

Let's take London, England as an example for your package address, which is more than 3000 miles away. When you try to do air international shipping from Canada, you may likely pay around $41.73 for a package weighing 4oz(113g). However, with Stallion Express's cost-effective prices, you only need to pay $6.20 to ship a package with the same dimensional weight. 

If you are wondering if we also ship in Asia, then yes, we do. We can, for instance, do door to port shipping to Hong Kong. Usually, you would pay a minimum of $58.30 for a parcel weighing 15oz (425g). However, for a package of the same weight but with Stallion's rates, you can save up to 79% as you will only be paying $12.19. Plus, there are no monthly fees, costs, or hidden charges to help you save as much as you can.

By checking the website, you can see how much you need to pay for small packages and large items. Again, correct dimensional weight will make it easier for you to identify the payment.

What Can Be Shipped?
