The second method is for larger qty, preferably in a full container load (FCL) or partial container load(PCL). This is of course by sea but it involves the buyer arranging for his own freight forwarding agent and shipment. It can also be cheaper as payment by Letter of Credit is effective only after the goods have been loaded on board the ship. Shipping rates here will be very cheap. One container load is about 200 cartons or 10,000 tubes. This method of shipping is used by companies who deal in international commerce.
For the smaller qty type of shipment, the postal shipping charges by sea to the Netherlands are:
First 1kg................. HK$110
Next 6kg................. HK$16 per kg
Over 7kg................. HK$12 per kg
The max. weight allowed is 20kg for the Netherlands. The weight of each tube of shuttles is about 180gm or about 9kg for a 50-tubes carton. The weight of the carton is quite heavy, ranging from 4kg to maybe 6-7kg.
Some other countries allow a higher max. weight of up to 30kg, which makes it ideal to stack 2 cartons into one big parcel, thereby saving on freight as any extra weight over the first kg is mauch cheaper than the first kg.
Shipment by air is too prohibitively expensive.

Aeroplane(black label) will be your best choice.Case closed!!!
$19.00 per tube.
If you want a fairly durable grade for eveyday playing and practice for a good price,i know the distributor that he imported shuttlecocks from Vietnam with excellent quality.About $11-$12 per tube.
I play almost 5-6 days a week,so i go through lots of birdies.

I want to share my experience with Aeroplane EG1130 again. I said previously in my post that EG1130 was good. But subsequently I bought 5 more tubes from Queensway SC, the quality was not as consistent.
So far I used up almost two tubes. The cock on one of the shuttlecock detached from the feather after about half a game. another one wobble slightly after a matche play. A few of them are not as durable as the older batch but are as good as victor green at least.
The rest are as good as AS40. And one of them last for 4 game of double. Let me quantiy the extent of game - about 40% of the time baseline to baseline, 20% smash, the rest normal shots. The flight was amazingly good even after 3-4 game. Strangly with this brand is it does not slow down too much even when the feathers are worn.
I still think EG1130 is value for money. Just to bear with some inconsistency in quality.

I also noticed that even broken feathers (happens after a long time) has not so much impact on the flight. The flight is a little different from AS40 but that just takes a bit of getting use to. The consistency in maintaining its flight beats the AS40 hands down.

I recently tried a few AS40 that were faster than my '50 EG1130 so I also observed the same as you. None of them last as long so I'm sticking to the EG for now. At this rate, we use only 3 shuttles for a 2 hour game so it's still cheaper. Just that we do not get a fresh shuttle with every game.
