USPS International Priority Airmail ePacket® is a lightweight, trackable delivery confirmation product available for bulk mailings of First-Class Package International for items weighing less than 4lbs.
Commercial ePacket® is currently going to 14 countries: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Spain, France, Germany, Finland, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Portugal, UK and the Netherlands. The U.S. Postal Service is currently in the process of expanding Commercial ePacket® to more countries.
Each item will have a Commercial ePackets® label bearing a barcode with an “LX” prefix (see an example below), a Prime Post Expres marking; and in addition, each label also contains the Customs Label, the CN 22. This will allow delivery confirmation information to be transmitted when the item is scanned in the receiving country. The labels are prepared by International Delivery Solutions according to USPS specifications. Commercial ePackets® are pre-sorted and pre-sacked and brought to the USPS International Service Center by International Delivery Solutions. Example of label:
The first scan will appear at the International Service center, and sends customs pre-clearance information to the receiving foreign post. Within 4-14 days the items clears postal customs; and the item receives delivery confirmation.
