Balikbayan Box:What You Need To Know
Forex Cargo – The Balikbayan Box
A lot of my American friends are asking me what a Balikbayan box is. I simply tell them that it is a cardboard box containing novelty gift or pasalubong items sent by a Filipino living in the United States to his family and friends back home in the Philippines. Most of these boxes contain canned goods, chocolates, electronics, toiletries, household and other non-perishable stuff.
Forex Cargo is in the forefront of this service having been in the industry since 1986. The standard Forex Cargo box is 20x20x20 in size but a bigger version known as a jumbo box is also available for purchase. Part of the attraction of sending a Forex cargo balikbayan box back home is “economy”. Imagine paying a flat rate of $60 (for Metro Manila Only), a kababayan living abroad can share their blessings to their families left behind in the Philippines. Another great thing about sending Forex cargo box is that you can fill it up to the brim with anything as long as it doesn’t violate custom regulations and still pay the same flat fee plus there is no weight limit as long as it fits the box.
