So Vpost revamped their website, it's about time.... but that doesn't change the fact that their pricing model is archaic - no freight forwarders charge a "base charge". You should only be paying for volumetric weight. Plus, Vpost is so much slower than other freight forwarders - who uses DHL or Fedex.
