Balikbayan Box Season in Time for the Holidays

Above is the list of Balikbayan shippers located in FilipinoTown in Woodside NY. We compiled rates for easy comparison of our Kababayans. For not so familiar with Balikbayan box, A balikbayan box (literally "repatriate box") is a corrugated box containing items sent by Filipinos living in United States or other countries outside the Philippines (known as "balikbayans"). Shipped by freight forwarders specializing in Balikbayan boxes by sea cargo. Part of the attraction of the balikbayan box is its economic value, as it allows cheaper bulk shipment of items via sending each individually or in smaller boxes through postal services. The tradeoff though is longer transit time by container ship, which typically requires several weeks, along with the lack of a firm delivery date. The Balikbayan box is a modern manifestation of the general Philippine practice as being family oriented and generosity.
