Notice regarding future shipping methods
Thank you for always choosing 8mart.
So far, we have listed the shipping methods of 4 shipping companies on our website.
But, in most cases, we have used Japan Post or DHL.
Due to the recent rise in logistics costs, Japan Post has stopped economy shipping methods in many areas, and plans to raise prices significantly from June this year.
Japan Post’s latest service availability by country
Revision of rates for EMS and international parcels
Under these circumstances, we have determined to use only Japan Post or DHL as a future shipping method.
We believe our decision will have the bargaining power against DHL to obtain further volume discount that can withstand future increases in logistics costs. The reasons for suspension of use of FedEx and UPS are as follows.
- FedEx: We had frequent system troubles and the system troubles weren’t resolved even after we created a new account.
- UPS: The corporate rate presented to us is not competitive.
Within the next 2 weeks, we will remove the FedEx and UPS listings from our website.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.
