Cheaper shipping options now available

We are constantly looking for more economical ways to ship. Pos Malaysia has recently introduced FlexiPack boxes and we will use this under the new Economy shipping for Malaysia. This shipping method is trackable, slightly cheaper than Pos Laju but slightly slower and does not require signature (no proof of delivery). Shipping time is expected to be around 2 to 7 days. It is an alternative if you do not need things urgently and want to save a little bit on shipping.

For the rest of the world, we will use FlexiPack International as well. We have reduced the Economy shipping rate to reflect this.

Economy shipping service is provided by Pos Malaysia. For more details on shipping, check out our shipping page here and here.

Environmental aspects in packaging

We get many shipments from suppliers and manufacturers to our doorstep. Those shipments come with packing materials such as boxes, bubble wraps, foam peanuts, anti-static bags and others. Instead of discarding those materials, we keep the one with good condition in one corner.

Rather than buying new packing materials, we try whenever possible to reuse them for our shipments out to customers. Admittedly, it is cumbersome to sort them out and it’s beginning to take up some space. However we think that the extra effort is worthwhile considering the environmental impacts of discarding those materials. It is also economical and we get to keep our handling price low. Of course, we do all this without compromising protection for products that we ship.

So the next time you get a shipment from us, pardon the inconsistencies in the packaging.  We hope with our little contribution, it could make the world a better place and we encourage you to do the same.
