Shipping packages around the world can be a costly business, especially for online retailers. However, the TrakPak delivery service is a purpose-built eCommerce shipping network which allows you to send goods to global destinations for a fraction of the cost of a standard courier service.
What is TrakPak?
TrakPak is a hybrid courier service, which means it utilizes the services of other shipping companies to deliver your package. The domestic leg of the journey is fulfilled by a courier company, such as FedEx, who will send your package to a sorting depot where it will be sorted and shipped overseas by TrakPak. When your package arrives at its destination country, TrakPak injects it into the postal network and the local postal service makes the final delivery. This is a particularly popular and cost-effective option for customers shipping small packages overseas.
How long does TrakPak take to deliver?
TrakPak is an economy shipping service so it will typically take longer than standard and expedited services. When you compare prices using the Parcel Monkey shipping calculator you will also be able to compare estimated shipping times, so you can ensure you book a service that will suit your needs.
TrakPak - drop off and collected services
TrakPak is available as a drop-off or a collected service, so you can choose which service is most convenient for you. Either drop off your package at your local FedEx drop off location or book a courier collection from your home or work address. Drop-off services are generally cheaper than collected services, so you can make extra savings by booking TrakPak drop-off.
Track my TrakPak
TrakPak is a tracked mail service, which means you can track your package, but tracking updates will be less frequent than a standard courier service. You can track your TrakPak delivery by entering your Parcel Monkey reference number into our TrakPak tracking tool.
Booking TrakPak with Parcel Monkey
When you book TrakPak as a drop-off or collected service with Parcel Monkey, you’ll be provided with two shipping labels to attach to your package - one label to take it to a central sort location and another label for the final delivery address. You'll need to attach both labels. Learn more about how to print and attach shipping labels.
If you’re sending a parcel overseas, you’ll need to complete a customs declaration form detailing the contents of your package and the value. This is included in our booking process for TrakPak, so all you have to do is answer the questions accurately, print out the completed form and attach it to your package.
Does TrakPak include protection cover?
Yes, it does. When you book TrakPak it includes protection cover up to $50.
