HOW TO SHIP
Since EMS is not a courier company, many shipments are carried within the EMS courier network without the sender knowing so. If you often ship international packages through the national post service of your country, such as La Poste in France, Correos in Spain or Parcelforce in the UK, chances are you have already sent packages via EMS without even realising. Many postal companies offer urgent deliveries using EMS express shipping services, which are available worldwide.
For most routes, it is not possible to book a parcel delivery with EMS directly – EMS may be the carrier, but the booking is processed through the postal company. However, EMS has recently created a series of online shipping labels to allow customers to reserve an EMS international express courier delivery directly on the website. After having the label and attaching it to the parcel, the customers still have to take it to the post office for shipping.
There are currently 88 countries where you can already ship from using EMS parcel labels. Here are a few of them:
Alternatively, with Eurosender, you can ship to over 220 countries and territories worldwide. Use our booking tool to get an instant quote when organising your international parcel delivery!
When organising an international courier delivery with EMS, it is natural that most customers are interested in knowing the EMS express shipping time before paying for the service. Unfortunately, the company does not disclose the details about EMS shipping time on their website since it may depend heavily on the route chosen and the capacity of the local post service in those countries. We have found records of cases where EMS international package deliveries took up to 7 working days, but urgent shipments are also possible, with an estimated delivery time of up to 3-4 days. There are also cases where the EMS shipping time may be a couple of weeks long.
