Coronavirus: Latest News From JAUCE | Updated on May 6, 2020April 03, 2020
Updated on May 6, 2020.
After EMS service has been suspended in some countries, DHL shipping was made available in JAUCE.
Unlike EMS, DHL delivery fees are based on the volumetric weight method, which may require additional charges depending on the volume of the package.
To calculate the volumetric weight in kilograms, the volume of the parcel in cubic centimeters is divided by 5000. Most courier companies base their delivery rates on the actual weight or volumetric weight of a package, whichever is greater.
Please note that EMS is still our primary shipping method. We only use DHL if the EMS service is not available for the destination country. Because, for the DHL shipments, shipping fees may increase depending on the volume of the package to be sent.
Although we try to process DHL shipments without any fee increase, if this is not the case with your delivery, you will be informed in advance.
Alternatively, you can choose to send by Surface mail, which usually takes 2-3 months. Or, you can store your items for free in our warehouses until EMS service restarts. We hope that EMS will open again earlier than expected.
First of all, we hope you are all in good health, and the Coronavirus pandemic will soon be over.
We want to share information with you about how we operate.
