I do not understand what you mean by the following. Can you try to rephrase your question, or explain what you mean to say?
I would like to explain the sea shipping costs. The cost from HK to Le Havre for these 3 boxes is USDxxx, but this is only from port to port. To ship the goods from Le Havre to your daughterís home, additional costs are added. These costs include the customs clearance, inland transportation and miscellaneous costs for documentation, handling etc. These services cost more in the EU, as the worker wages are higher within the EU than outside. Even though the goods' volume is not large (only 0.24cbm), minimum service / charges are significant, therefore the total cost is USDxxx.
I will check the cost from FedEx, which can be compared to this sea shipping, to see which is cheapest. But for my option use the forwarder is much safety than the courier, as I donít think the courier can take care the goods individual, and this forwarder is reliable as I used them to ship Jeanís personal goods last time. Let me check the courier cost for you, and let us discuss again later.
