How reliable is EMS from China? 10 replies,45827 views

Hi, I'm wondering how reliable EMS is from Shenzhen, China. I have a parcel coming from there and it's been dispatched from the sorting center in SHENZHEN then it's recieved by the sorting centre in SHENZHEN and it repeats this every few days. It's done this 4 times so far. So it looks like it's still in Shenzhen. Is there a lot of different sorting centres in Shenzhen?

Supplier is not having luck with post office to find out.

Hi, there. Judged by your description above, it might because the shipping agent your supplier used is a small one which are a direct partner of China post. These small parcel forwarders often need to pass the packages to defferent level' agents to let them finnnaly depart from China airport. These guys are able to attract suppliers with lower shipping rate, but the safe of the package is more than they can gurantee because of the repeat tourning around in the home country.
Now, if you are shipping bulk orders from China, to secure the safe of your goods, you can arrange the shipment by yourself. As I know, there are some good parcel forwarder based in Shenzhen which are eligible to pass the parcels to China post directly like SendFromChina with homepage at http://www.sendfromchina, a shipping partner I'm currently using.
By using this companies' service, you will get peace in your mind by knowing your packages are handle properly. Besides, finding your own ship partner in China can remove the possibility of your supplier earn profit via your shipment cost. Do you agree with me?
Re: How reliable is EMS from China?
EMS is in fact a international service

EMS in Shenzhen is okay, you can also try UPS, DHL

Only one centre near the Baoan air port, but some in administrative districts

EMS service is reliable as it is internationally followed with some protocols. Your situation may be due to lack in information sharing as there may be many people involved in delivering your product.

HK EMS or China Mainland EMS???

From China to Australia,EMS service  is good,it usually take one week T/T time under normal condition.

If your cargo is urgent,it is better to schedule by DHL,UPS,FEDEX,TNT or air,they are faster than EMS.

Never order EMS shipping!
