Shipping has always been a major problem for all hair businessmen. People who are not or new in this business may think the fee to ship your hair only takes a small budget. However, they are all wrong!!! This is the international shipping that we are talking about.

The owner of the hair business has to carefully consider the cost of shipping in order to make a profit as much as possible or at least avoid to be loss-making.

K-HAIR understands your problem which is all so the issue of thousands of our customers. Therefore, we will give you 3 SUPER EFFECTIVE ways to ship your hair.

1. Hand-Carried Shipping – The best method to ship your hair.

Hand-Carried Shipping is a type of delivery that your goods (curly hair, wavy hair, etc) are carried and shipped by an actual person traveling by trains, cars, especially airplanes.

Hand-Carried Shipping

This is a well-known way used by many hair sellers around the world. Why is this a favorable method to ship your hair?

1.1. What are the benefits of using Hand-Carried to ship your hair?

This is the cheapest shipping method. There are hundreds of hand-carried cargos or agents that provide this service at reasonable prices.

Hand-carried shipping will save you a lot of time. The reason for this is that the shipping agents can deliver your hair in just a flight.

Additionally, your hair is well-protected by the shippers so there should be no concern about losing the package.

1.2. Cons – The negative sides of shipping hair.

This way can not be applied to all countries. Some places don’t have sufficient infrastructure or demands to build these services.

Some countries have strict customs regulations for clearance, which may negatively affect the shipping procedure. If you can not pass the border, your hair will be returned to the supplier or, even worse, damaged immediately.

Customs and Border Protection

However, those bad circumstances hardly ever happen. Hand-carried is still the best choice to ship your hair due to its low cost.

2. DHL – The most well-known way to ship your hair.

DHL is an international shipping courier founded in 1969. Its headquarter is now in Bonn, Germany. DHL is one of the most influential companies in the world shipping.


2.1. Pros

DHL provides fast shipping services. Comparing to other shipping couriers, DHL is in the top position for the speed of shipping.

Second, DHL has built an international shipping network in about 220 countries, which is also a very competitive factor that other companies can’t have.

Additionally, door-to-door service provides a fast and convenient process for customers

2.2. Cons

In fact, the higher the quality, the costly it takes. DHL shipping rate is costly and higher than most couriers.

Another downside is the occasional extra charge including custom fee, certificate of aseptic process.

To conclude, if you want to ship to or from Africa and other mountainous regions and your customers demand quick shipping, DHL should be a great choice to ship your hair

3. UPS

UPS is an international shipping courier founded in 1907 and based in Georgia, US. This is a big competitor of DHL due to its competitive service and prices.


3.1. Advantages of shipping your hair using UPS.

Low price is a huge factor that UPS can outweigh many other companies in the shipping business. If you want to ship your hair in huge quantity, the shipping rates can be negotiated.

Additionally, the process of shipping hair using UPS is very simple. The number of destinations that your hair has to get through is fewer than other couriers.

3.2. Disadvantages of UPS

In contrast to DHL, UPS has lower prices, therefore, comes with longer shipping time.

Furthermore, UPS’s shipping network is not as wide as other couriers. If you want to ship to Africa or strict custom regulation countries, UPS should not be a prior choice.

At the end of the day, UPS is still useful in the situation that there is no requirement for speed and it can save you a considerable amount of money.
