So, I just did a rate quote on our DHL account.
We have a standard account and I’m sure Glowforge would have negotiated better rates than us.
However, our quoted rate was $440usd. (to Australia)
We are being charged $675usd for this by Glowforge.
So, $235 more than a typical rate, easily obtainable by our small business.
The quote was based on the dimensions Dan has given here on the forum.
(Shipping dimensions are 46" x 29" x 16" and 70 pounds.)
I’d really like to hear the justification for such a heavy mark up, and perhaps a photo of a real invoice from DHL to prove that we are actually being charged the correct amount for shipping.
