Service Review: Shipping Cart's Improved Air Shipping Service

I haven't used the Shipping Cart service since March 2017 primarily due to their increased shipping rates, which took effect last March 1, 2017. But to be fair to them, I haven't used other freight forwarding services either. Interestingly, the $1.00 and $1.87 per pound increase in air and sea shipping fee, respectively, was enough to keep me out of Amazon for the next few months. :P

Amazon Prime Day was enough reason, though, to order from Amazon US again and try Shipping Cart's advertised improved service. Just in case you're not aware, Shipping Cart's air shipping service is now sending parcels from the US daily. This means you can now receive your parcel faster, in 5-10 days after shipping it out instead of the previous 10-15 days waiting period.

I'm curious how long it will take me now to receive a parcel from the US via Shipping Cart air shipping. Join me as I wait for the delivery of my Amazon Prime Day haul. :)

I'm going to update this post every time there's an update on my Amazon order. Let's see if Shipping Cart can keep up with the volume of orders they received. This can also give us an idea how fast they can process our orders in the coming Black Friday Sale, scheduled on November 24, 2017.
