2013 POS MALAYSIA HAS INSANELY INCREASES INTERNATIONAL AIR PARCEL FOR WORLDWIDE DELIVERY THAT TAKES EFFECT IN MAY 2013 - 17.MAY.2013

First of all, i know that the topic is not about HOT WHEELS but it does related to all the net sellers in MALAYSIA who do business in HOT WHEELS or toy related business online or online worldwide business including me. This morning when i want to sent out parcels to overseas and one of the sender from our local post office mentioned that the oversea postage price has been insanely increased to double the normal price. I was totally shocked when i was told that one of my parcel that send to U.S. address is RM64.60 for 0.21kg!! Can you imagine that?? What makes me even more unhappy when the person in charge at the counter ask me do you still want to send or not?? Last time, when i posted out to U.S. address is only RM23.40 for 0.21kg. *RM stands for Ringgit Malaysia. Luckily i did photographed the postage rate before it increased.
THIS CHART HAS BEEN USE FOR A LONG TIME NOW & BEFORE MAY 2013

THIS NEW BOOKLET OF NEW PRICE LIST IS EFFECTIVE IN MAY 2013
THIS IS THE PAGE WHERE MOST OF US (NET SELLERS) SHOULD TAKE SERIOUS NOTE ABOUT THE PRICE LIST FOR AIR PARCEL WORLDWIDE COURIER SERVICE.
If you take a look at the zoning section for Air Parcel, U.S.,U.K., Canada & Mexico is not in any zone list. Don't you think it is weird? And if these countries were to be categorized in Other Countries, that means that the postage cost is about RM120 and above (for 1kg)?

I have called the head of our local poslaju here and ask about whether the POSLAJU shipping rate will be increased or not and mentioned that will not be increase at the moment. They have discuss this matter since the POS MALAYSIA have increased the price and they received ALOT of complaints and there's no reason given for why the overseas postage fee has been increased at the moment.

Well, i just want to share these information for all MALAYSIAN out there who is doing posting to overseas, please be aware of this matter and share with all your friends or colleagues, ok. Ever since the end of the Election, some of the things in our country has been changes alot. I felt that this matter is only the beginning of something even worst which is about to pour on all of us. Some of my friends here has already stop the business for shipping out because of the increased postage fee. Be aware of all the things that ship into our country from overseas and check all things are correct and in order before you take your things from the post office. We are being forced to use other courier services but i can tell you now that all the other courier services are more expensive even if you have registered account on them. I have called some of the other courier services and they mentioned the postage rates will be increased sometimes soon.

Again, please share this information to avoid any inconvenience costs to your customers at the end of the transaction. Thank you. 

Thank you for visiting my blog & i hope that this matter will be solved if all act in one voice and with one power! Take care!

  1. I know! This issues has sparks rage among online business owner/trader/customer in Malaysia..If I'm not mistaken from what I hear, it is because the rates previously had been used for a long time and not relevant anymore..One more is because Pos Malaysia operates 24/7 365 days/year..the cost is for efficient work..

    1. Good.I hope everyone in Malaysia knows about this & quickly act on it because if they (POS MALAYSIA) really say that the cost is for efficient work, then proof it. How many of your parcel(s) been delayed or missing each year & how fast is it for a good name given by them (POS MALAYSIA) REGISTERED MAIL to reach to our customers & with the double price(unreasonable & unnecessary price) that they (POS MALAYSIA) have increased, do you want to use their services for all these reason(s)?

      Hello?? Where is the announcement given to public? If it does, do you aware of it? When was it? One thing for sure is that their (POS MALAYSIA) is BROKEN!! Just like the saying of Anakin Skywalker in STAR WARS!

      I have wrote an email to them yesterday, no reply. I have call their toll call 1300300300, it takes more than 2 hours but no answer. "All assistants is still busy." WTH, man!

      I know some of you must have experienced what i have gone through but it is sad. Most of the online traders & business online owners have stop all their worldwide online trading for now. We will see what happens next.

      Thanks for your comment. :)

  3. Thanks for posting the photos! Pos Malaysia's recent website changes seem to have hidden some data needed for shipping quotes for e-commerce checkouts. Have you seen a maximum weight per destination (it used to depend on destination) mentioned anywhere?

    Shouldn't they have charged you RM21 for your shipment on their new Small Packet service?

    1. You are welcome.
      I have went to the post office yesterday & they still charge for RM60 for small parcel weighted 0.24Kg! Well, its hard to do worldwide business if things still the same. Tomorrow is public holiday for Malaysia so i will have to check them out again on Monday. Perhaps the new rates haven't been updated in my hometown area here.

      Will definitely update on this info this coming Monday.
      Even if you refer to the pos malaysia web site, it is not what it seems when you actually at the post office.
      Thanks for your info & comment. :)
