Q: Shipping boxes from China to the US?

Hi I want to ship a box of some winter clothes back home to the US. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should go about this/have any experience with it?

Could I use China Post or would it be better if I tried to find a UPS/Fedex center? Would my stuff be safe enough that it would be worth the risk of it potentially getting lost?

And would it be worth the cost in the first place (versus paying extra when I fly back)?

For years now I have shipped boxes from China to USA, and viceversa.  Until the USPS stopped accepting parcel post shipments to China, the cost was roughly $ 1.00 per pound, and will take from 2 to 3 months to get here.  And from China to USA they still do parcel post rates, and it is so low it is not worth paying Fed Ex rates at all.  Again, takes 2 to 3 months to get there.

And if you are concerned about getting lost, you can "register" it, the fee is around 15 yuan.  I have shipped boxes up to about 25 kilos back, and paid always less than 100 yuan for it.  But the last one was maybe 2 years ago.

A:Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results. Employee assessments tools are extremely beneficial in realizing the results are quantifiable and go a long way in ascertaining the work style and behavioral attributes of potential employees before they set foot into your company. In-fact they take out the guesswork involved in recruiting the employees who can work together.  The major benefit of the assessment tools is not confined to the hiring process, but also used as an effective tool of employee retention. The assessment tool will identify the gap between employee work style and job needs. They provide you a road map for recruitment of prospective employees and the further development of essential traits such as, leadership ability, individual development, team communications and conflict resolution. It will also help the employees to make better, satisfying and successful career choices. Nowadays more and more organizations are integrating personality assessments with skill tests, leadership evaluations, 360-degree assessment, evaluation and feedback, disc personality profile and behavioral assessment. -- LoganMountgarre
