Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I just wanna ask, has anyone here from wisconsin?

I just wanna know if you guys could give me Idea what courier to use when sending balikbayan box? I've been looking online and all I see is marlikan forwarder cargo. I checked DTI for accredited list of Cargos but marhalikan is not even on the list. I tried to call forex cargo but they don't have store in wisconsin. So let me know if anyone of you knows courier where i can ship my package.

Thank's!

Best bet for finding a shipper is to check with the Asian stores near you.

I recommend finding a Filipino restaurant or grocery store and inquire with them as to who they can recommend. If you know other Filipinos who live in your area, contact some of them. I have some suggestions for you to visit to see if they can be any help for your area.

I don't endorse any of these nor have I ever used their services. Your mileage will vary.

i am also in Wisconsin and am looking for a courier to send a balikbayan box. I was also only able to find Marhalikan after searching google. Did you manage to find another courier or did you end up trying Marhalikan? If you tried Marhalikan how did it work out?

DHL would not be a good choice to move a flat rate per box dims regardless of weight. They do next day air stuff, not sea cargo. Very expensive service.
