I recently needed to ship a 5 pound box from the US to Holland, so I
did some checking. UPS and FedEx and their competition all wanted
over $100 for that, cheapest rate.
So I checked the post office. USPS would do the same for about $30,
"priority mail". The big difference is that you don't get package
tracking. But it still goes by air as far as I can tell. It seems
that the old cheap "surface mail" across the ocean no longer exists.
So next time you need a cross-ocean shipment, check the post office,
they are likely to be the best answer.
