Updated: Jul 16, 2023


KOREA POST EMS


The post office's International Express Mail (EMS) is operated through transportation companies in each country affiliated with the Korean post office, and transportation costs are low, but, Weight (up to 30kg, 20kg in some countries) and size (up to 1.5m in length, 3m in total) and restrictions on shipments (no batteries, no corrupt food shipments).


Delivery Day


Minimum 7 to 30 days in US time


Shipping cost calculation method


It is calculated as the higher weight among the actual weight and volume weight (width×length×height/6,000)




International Shipping Service (DHL,FedEx, UPS)


Delivery Day


7-10 days in US (business day, excluding customs settlement date)


Shipping cost calculation method


It is calculated as the higher weight among the actual weight and volume weight (width×length×height/5,000)


For example, if real weight is 10 kg but the volume is 56×41×36 cm, the volume weight (width×length×height/5,000) is 16.5 kg.


The special delivery company monitors all transportation progress from Korea to the recipient country by one carrier (DHL, FedEX, Post Office Premium UPS, etc.),

It is faster and safer than post office EMS, has less weight and size constraints, and has the advantage of being able to transport lithium batteries.

In addition, compared to post office EMS, the rate of loss of the shipment is less, and if customs problems occur at the recipient country's customs, you can get help from a designated customs agent.


If the fare difference between the post office EMS and the express service is not big, we recommend using the express service.


The discount rate is high up to 23kg in the United States, and the discount rate is high up to 28kg in countries outside the United States.
