UPS Air Consolidated Shipping - Updated 12/7/19

Well I managed to sweet talk myself into UPS's new program and these are the lowest rates for air shipments I have ever seen!

How does the program works? I have to accumulate a number of European orders together and they are shipped as a single shipment and then broken up into their own shipment by UPS staff. That's why the delivery time may be up to 3 weeks on average. If I don't have enough packages, it may take a little while longer, but it definitely will be quicker then sending it surface. The best shipping rates start at 5 lbs to a max of 10 lbs of product. You need to stay under 10.5 lbs. It's cheaper to send 2 shipments of 10 lbs, then 1 shipment of 20 lbs!

You will notice that you now have to pay your countries' applicable VAT, if that country is in this program. However that still works out to a significant reduction even when combined together.
