My sister in New Zealand tries to send us some packages twice a year. The latest is expected this April since delivery process takes around 45 days to the Philippines. So we are expecting another huge box from her anytime within these dates. What seems to be fortunate is that she has turned to be a regular customer of the international container shipping.
With this privilege, the courier already knows her and whoever from our end will receive. They usually take pictures of us to make it easier to trace who received the package. They are also familiar with our location as they have returned here many times. My sister also enjoys a lot of benefits like discounts as she has become a personal friend of the owner.
