China Post Small Packet

A China Post International Small Parcel is a delivery service purely for items that weigh a small amount (below 2kg). The service can be from China to all other countries on its "shipping list". It is for sure the most economical way to post your items. One of the ways to post your small packet parcel is via the Express Postal Service (EMS). This is an international mail express service managed by the Universal Postal Union, and is an express service provided by the China Post. Through China Post Air Parcel, you can send packages or parcels to over 230 countries and regions around the world. But relatively slowly and there are many restrictions on the weight, they can take a while to deliver especially internationally but are the cheapest option. The main difference to remember between the EMS delivery service and a normal Air Post Parcel is that EMS is the premium delivery service for China Post. A China Post Small Packet Air parcel cannot be heavier than 2 kg and the length cannot exceed 60 cm, any package over 2 kg would need to be sent via a different method. The pricing is also very different with the EMS service taking a very short time to be delivered and is the most stable so of course, costs more money to send. The delivery times of the parcel or package will heavily depend on each post office that handles your items, plus customs clearance if leaving China. The following times are just to be used as an example

Delivery Time of China Post Small Packet

The delivery time is usually decided by the processing time of the post offices and customs clearance conditions. The following time is just for your reference:

  • For Air Parcel being sent to China neighboring countries would take 7-15 days, to Europe and American countries would take 10-30 days and to all other countries and regions would take 15-40 days.
  • For a Surface Air Lift (SAL) parcel to be delivered it would take 30-60 days and the longest time to wait on a delivery option would be a Surface Parcel which is 60-120 days before it would get delivered to the buyer. You can also claim compensation if your package or parcel is lost by China Post as long as the parcel is sent via the registered method. The China Post will determine the value of the goods lost and give you fair compensation to cover the costs of this. By sending normal mail you would not receive any compensation. If you do have any questions with reference to China Post then you can contact them on their customer hotline. The number is 11185 (if you are in China) or if you are calling from outside China then +86 10 11185, there is only a Chinese-speaking language option so if you are not familiar with mandarin then maybe try to email them, or contact them via their website.
