I don’t know why no one mentioned there was a third provider for fright forwarding in Kuwait that also happens to be cheaper than everyone else (first pound is KD 2.5, every other pound is KD 2). I just found out about them and will sending a few shipments their way to test. I’ve contacted them to get more details, below are answers to the questions I’ve asked.[Website]
- We are charging by actual weight of the shipments for My Box service unless the size was very odd (big) and can’t be accepted in regular flights (this is very rare and only for very big sizes).
- Shipping fees: KD 2.5 for the 1st half kilograms, any additional half kilograms will be charged KD 2, clearance fees: KD 1, subscription fees: KD 7 one life time, this exclude any custom duty or governmental taxes.
- Average transit time for shipments is 7-9 working days for shipments to be delivered to your door. (this including the custom clearance period)
- Shipments normally stays as an average 2 days at customs to be cleared.

Update: Mark posted about Borderlinx, also a new freight forwarding service by DHL.
