Just wondering who people use to send parcels overseas?
Australia Post? UPS? DHL? Other?
We may need to send a parcel 80cm x 16cm x 20cm weighing 2kg to Louisiana, New Orleans.
Curious on who is the best carrier to use, price wise and for reliability.

I've used Aus Post and DHL.
Either one will charge by weight (I think)
There is a website you can go to that will estimate the cost depending on which carrier you use
Shipping and tracking dot com then search Australia
From memory, auspost is cheapest

Which ever way you choose to send the item make sure you get an overseas tracking number.
I sent a parcel to South Africa in early March with Australia post via registered post. (Thinking the number they gave me was a tracking number). When the parcel still hadn't been delivered over 6 weeks later I made enquires with Auspost. (I had paid for the article to be delivered within 10 business days).
They basically wiped there hands of the article as they said they could not track once in a foreign country.
The parcel eventually made its way to the recipient in late June..

I usually use Aus Post or DHL. Aus Post for most, but DHL if urgent or AP won't ship it. For example, I shipped my SIL a laptop, and it had to via DHL (to Spain) because it had a lithium battery.

I'm thinking Australia Post may be the way to go, we'll just go with one of the options that has tracking.
