“My daughter is a field researcher for the United Nations. She works on water safety and supply,” David said. “Her work takes her all over the world. This can make it tricky when it’s time to send her birthday presents or care packages. She’s so far off the beaten track that they don’t even have tracks!”
Shipping packages internationally can be challenging. The situation becomes even more complicated when you’re dealing with recipients who are in regions that don’t have the same sort of infrastructure we’re used to here, in the South Shore. However, by working with an experienced shipping company, it is possible to get your packages to even the most remote destination.
A word to the wise: packages that are going to extremely remote destinations take longer to get there than you might expect. Sometimes mail services only visit the most remote villages on a weekly, monthly, or fortnightly basis. With this in mind, you’ll want to allow plenty of time for your packages to arrive. David, for example, sent his daughter’s birthday package three months before it needed to arrive.
Additionally, extra care must be taken when preparing a package for shipment to extremely remote locations. Making sure a package is water-proof, crush-proof, and as secure as humanly possible without being excessively heavy is a balancing act definitely left to the pros. The team at Boston Pack and Ship – your South Shore shipping store! – is very experienced at preparing packages to be shipped to the most rugged, remote destinations.
