I have been posting some really boring notices from FedEx recently. Boring to the people who don’t need to know the information but really important to those that send or import to and from Spain.
So let’s lighten up a little and tell a true story about a recent cusomer who went into Citibox Diana Parc (Estepona, Malaga) office with three boxes weighing 15kg to send from Spain to the Emerald Isle of Ireland. They insisted on sending through UPS as this was the only delivery service they trusted. The UPS price was a tad under €300 for the “Standard” rate which means road transport so we offered them a generous 20% discount from the price they would have to pay if they went direct to UPS.
Citibox can discount the rates to their customers because we get discounts for the volumes that we put through. However, on learning that they could ship with FedEx Economy Service to Ireland through Citibox for only €55, the customer dropped his insistence on UPS and allowed Citibox to choose FedEx. The parcels were sent last Wednesday, 24 March and were out for delivery today, Friday 26 March. So that’s an Economy service that gets there in two days. No wonder that the customer is delighted and sending all his parcels Citibox from now on. We got another two yesterday.
Citibox just can’t be beaten on price or performance for parcels and courier from Spain so please check our prices before you send elsewhere.
