FAQs

FAQs

Shipping outside the borders of the United States to any country. International shipping can be more complicated than domestic shipping because every country has a specific set of shipping regulations and laws. Some countries have stricter policies that prohibit the transportation of certain goods or products. Additionally, international shipping requires shippers to manage time zones, language barriers and currency exchanges. Choosing a shipping partner that is familiar with these processes can make shipping products internationally more efficient and effective.

OSM offers various international shipping options to allow you to choose the solution that meets your business needs.

International Shipping Service Options:

  • Global Priority
  • Global Priority ePacket
  • Global Priority Parcel
  • Global Standard

International shipping rates are calculated similarly to domestic shipping prices. Shipping carriers calculate shipping charges based on either the package weight or volume. Whichever is greater becomes the billable weight of the package. The overall shipping cost also factors in the shipping origin, shipping destination and delivery speed.

Given the complexity of international shipping, there are several aspects that can go wrong with international shipments including inaccurate address details, incorrect dimensions/weights, incorrect customs forms, shipping unknowingly restricted materials and more. Shipping partners with experience eliminate the headache by managing the details on your behalf.

Packages may include a variety of items including apparel, books, publications or any other items within the weight/dimension limits that comply with the restricted and hazardous material guidelines.

Yes. Every country has its own set of rules and regulations on the types of goods allowed across the border and the fees associated with the process. The EU (European Union) has regulations concerning not only what is shipped but requires additional label criteria and packaging that meet specific recycling standards. There are many countries that do not allow shipments from the United States altogether.

Items shipped from the United States to another country require additional paperwork, including customs forms (except for First-Class Mail International® letters and large envelopes under 15.994 oz). The form you need varies by the specific USPS® mail service used, and the total value of the package shipped. Find and print out U.S. customs forms at USPS®. The right shipping partner can make the process more convenient by printing these forms for you and handling the screening.

International shipments use our tracking system, which is based on USPS® tracking numbers. Once packages are scanned into the system, all data can be monitored by the delivery service. Any USPS® tracking number can be tracked using our locate a package page.
