How does an eRetailer know which shipping service to use?
We start by helping you choose the shipping service option that works best for you and your customers. For example, duties and taxes. Would you prefer duties paid at checkout or would you rather the consumer pay duties and taxes upon delivery? We provide both shipping options
Does Globegistics support Order Management Systems to print labels?

How does an eRetailer get their packages to Globegistics?
We will coordinate the pick-up and transport of your packages to one of our 4 regional processing facilities in New York, Chicago, Miami or Los Angeles. Upon arrival, all packages are weighed, verified, scanned, screened and prepared for international transportation and final mile delivery.
Can you provide tips on preparing parcels for shipping?
Following these simple steps will ensure your packages arrive timely and in good form to your recipients:
- A new, strong box large enough to cushion the item will protect and prevent it from shifting.
- Fragile items should be packed with bubble wrap, loose fill peanuts, corrugated liners, rumpled craft paper or any professional packing product.
- Tape the top and bottom of the box closed and reinforce the seams of the box with 2″-wide pressure- sensitive packing tape.
- Applying the shipping label:
- Do not apply the label over a seam, or on top of the sealing tape.
- Do not tape over the label. Over time, the tape will fade the ink and your package can get delayed in the shipping process
- If shipping a tube, place the label horizontally (with the end of each label pointing towards the end of the tube) so the bar code can be scanned.
Remember! Regular maintenance of your Zebra Thermal Printer will yield better quality labels.
What about tracking?
The consumer can track
every milestone of their packages’ journey on our website.
What’s included in the Globegistics invoice?

Yes. We keep all of our customers in the loop via email of any incidents that may disrupt final mile mail services. Our Global Hot Spots
