It is no brainer, really. But I just want to share what I dug from my gazillion clicking of links. Balikbayan box, anyone? Yes, yes, it is a very popular term for Filipino overseas. Even old stuff we got from the thrift stores, we send it to the Philippines anyway. If you are using Umac Express Cargo, you are in luck! This post is intended for that. Again, no brainer. Instead of waiting for the next business day or hour to call a Umac’s Office, use your computer and your Internet connection. It easy and convenient.
1. Visit this link – http://www.forexcargouk.com/search/index.html. This works for Balikbayan boxes originating from Canada, USA, London, Italy, Bahrain, Hongkong, Korea, Macau, Greece, Spain, New Zealand and Singapore
2. Click the “Track Your Box” tab located at the top of the page.
3. Type the Invoice Tracking Number inside the (color grey) blank after the word “GO”.
4. Click “GO’.
5. The results will be displayed at the lower portion of the same page. If you find any discrepancy in the information, especially the destination or consignee address, better call your local Umac’s Office (Read: not the agent).
Start sending some “love” to the Philippines.
