International Postage Information

International Shipping

Since Oct 2018 Australia Post has implemented extensive changes to their International Parcel delivery services. Treetops is positioned to give our clients particularly competitive overseas postage rates because of our Discount Volume contract with Australia Post.  Here is a summary of what will effect you and how to get the most out of your postage costs.

  • INTERNATIONAL PARCELS UNDER 1KG:
    Intl Economy
     (Air NO Tracking, NO Recourse for lost parcels) is now cheaper than ever,10+ business days delivery. NOT recommended for parcels with a value over A$100.
    Intl Standard (Air with Tracking) This is a NEW service which allows tracking and medium speed delivery 3-10 business days. Around A$7.00 more than Economy.
    Intl Express (Express Air with Tracking and Signature*) Very expensive service to use for such a small parcel. Fastest and most secure delivery service 2-4 business days. (*not available in all countries)
  • INTERNATIONAL PARCELS OVER 1KG – 2KG:
    Intl Economy
     (Air NO Tracking, NO Recourse for lost parcels) this service is not recommended.
    Intl Standard (Air with Tracking) This is a new service which allows tracking and medium speed delivery 3-10 business days.
    Intl Express (Express Air and Tracking and Signature*) Fastest and most secure delivery service 2-4 business days. Over 1.5kg this service generally only costs around A$5.00 more than the Intl Standard service, in our opinion it is the best to use for parcels over 1.5kgs.  (*not available in all countries)
  • INTERNATIONAL PARCELS OVER 2KG:
    We recommend using Intl Express – it is the fastest, most secure and will only cost approximately A$5.00 more than the Intl Standard rate.
