    Hi again.......this time I am looking to locate a UPS, FEDEX or DHL office in Dumaguete....I need to send a envelope (documents only) to the U.S. of A. The recipient wants the documents insured. I went to LBC and they didn't know what "Insurance" for the documents meant! So they said, "No, not available".

    Mail and More is the local Fedex Agent, they are located on the national highway, go from the boulevard up silliman av (Past DHL), turn right onto the national highway, they are up on the left after the BPI Bank.

    Cell Phone Number 0920 910 8335

    Ups use 2Go, but it has to be booked via a Manila Number, if you have no luck, PM me and I will give you the UPS details.

    Cheers

    I just know UPS uses 2GO. I recently recieved a package here sent through UPS and it was lost for 2 weeks. Still no idea what happened but tracking showed that it was sitting in Manila but just the other day got a call from 2GO saying that they had my package and its been marked as undeliverable. So well got my package but it took a month almost.

    I've had the best luck with fedex going both ways.

    UPS,FedEx or DHL office in Duma?


    ......................................................................................................................................................................................................Hi All
    ...I found FedEx where you said...."Mail & More" on the main highway, near BPI. But it seems they are now using Air21 domestically to ship a item to Manila where FedEx picks it up. Unfortunately, The U.S.Embassy USED to use Air 21 as their designated domestic carrier some years back. The Embassy tried to overnight a SSA form to me Via Air 21....I never received it. Had to call Cebu office of Air21, they said they had the item there. When I checked 2 days later at Duma..no package..."Call Cebu, Sir"...I did..Cebu no longer could find or track the item. The Embassy tried from Manila. Nothing worked...so forgive me, But I no longer want to use Air21. Fee for my envelope would have been P1,743.80. LOL!
    We didn't check at the UPS shipper who seems to use 2Go. We found DHL where Norm...(aka Kelpguy) said his GPS showed it. We have driven down that street a zillion times in the past 6 years and never noticed their small UPS sign ...it shows "World Wide Express. I shipped my envelope with them. They said WW Express is a wholly owned subsidiary of DHL for domestic Philippine shipping. I ALWAYS thought DHL was more expensive than and FedEx. DHL, with insurance was only P1,436.10. I was able to easily track my envelope leaving from Duma to Manila, arrive at HK,leave HK,arrive at Cincinnati,USA,leave "Ciin City" and delivered to recipient in St.Paul Mn. Sent it on Wednesday right after lunch...delivered in afternoon Friday = just 2 days! Great service, and cheaper than FedEx.

    BBTW..a little FYI: I did an internet search and found that these local,domestic carriers used by the International ones all belong to a world wide association of some sort and they must comply with certain standards of the association, or they will be dropped from the group and not be able to ship for any International carrier. I think it said the association covers domestic carriers in 131 countries world wide. Their web site shows all the countries.
    Thank you everyone for your help!
