Well, it is shipped by DHL and they pay for sorting and custom clearing done by 4PX as well, I guess. So, I’m not sure, if DHL alone is cheaper, if a) Eve has to sort everything, b) get it through customs or let DHL get it through customs and then c) pay the price for the fastest delivery option. Especially since global logistics firms usually get discounts from their shipping partners, which Eve wouldn’t get.
And don’t get me wrong. This stuff is ridiculous at best, but switching midway through the shipping won’t work and I’m not sure, if there are good options to get in a week for the LBs. I hope, there are, for the sake of everyone, but I’m not sold that it’ll be easy. Imo 4PX should at least ship the LBs completely for free with the fastest option or pay us HEBs for the delay. Or both. It’s plain and simple unacceptable what they’re pulling off here. Not being able to complain to them actually pisses me off even further.
