We quote the most economic shipping cost using a courier, UPS in most cases. The shipment typically consists of 5 packages, two of which are heavy and bulky. One of the packages is dangerous goods and the shipment cost includes dangerous goods shipment processing typically charged at $125 by the courier on top of the shipping cost. In addition, the shipping quote includes the shipment of commercial standards that are shipped by Fedex Overnight Priority cold chain usually at around US$150-$200 to most of our customers. Lastly, the shipping quote includes insurance. Considering all this, we try to keep the shipping costs as low as we can.
