Poste Italiane: International shipments price list 2011

Seems to be it’s impossibile to find out how much the Italian Postal service is charging for a simple shipment of a box outside Italy. In fact, on their site they ONLY show you the more expensive ways (PaccoCelere Internazionale, QuickPak Europe, EMS) but these services have a starting price of € 28 ! There’s NO direct link on their site towards this page:

So, if you’re in Italy and you need to ship something, ask for “pacco ordinario per l’estero’. They won’t have any documentation about it and the price will depend on weight, country and if you’ll be using air or ground services.

But how to know what it’ll cost… Well, see the attached image of an internal document of the Poste Italiane! Should be valid from 2011 but your mileage may vary: prices are always subject to change (mostly without notice).

  1. Thanks Martjn, just what we needed as our ski boots weigh minimum 4kg a pair and we’re wondering whether to take them from Australia with us to Italy and then send them home or whether to rent. By the way I have always found Italian post offices terrific once you get to talk to the person behind the counter. But you do need to take in your own sticky tape for their boxes.
