We've been getting phone calls and e-mails from Bongo, which is a US-based freight consolidator / shipper that will accept delivery of multiple packages and then put them all into one box to be shipped all together for an international customer.
I gather that the way it works is that you could order fabric from one place, notions from another, and books from a third, plus whatever other merchandise you might want from US stores, and then Bongo repackages it and sends it all overseas. So rather than paying international freight on each small package, you would pay the international shipping just one time.
Has anyone used this service? Or even heard of it?
I looked at their website, and their shipping costs were more than we charge (for small packages). I think it only makes sense if you order a LOT of things to be shipped overseas, or you order heavy items.
But I'm wondering if anyone else has any experience with this?
