Shipping International Parcels from Ann Arbor, Michigan                                 Home

USPS Flat Rate:   a good option if you can fit it in the flat rate boxes.

UPS / FedEx:   you will probably obtain a better price for an international shipment using UPS or FedEx for documents and for parcels that won't fit in a USPS Flat rate box

More than 40 or 50 lbs:   your best price might be a local air cargo shipment, via an indirect air carrier such as A2 Global Shipping.  This is especially true if you are shipping a suitcase (personal effects) or what is considered hazardous material.   USPS, UPS & FedEx will usually reject any hazardous materials and if the clerk at the UPS or FedEx counter is not familiar with International Export forms, your shipment may be returned before it leaves the country.
