myGermany GmbH team would like to say thank you

myGermany GmbH team would like to say thank you

The entire myGermany GmbH team would like to say thank you!

Thank you for your patience in this extraordinary situation. Not only that we have to deal with the COVID19 crisis and the related difficulties also the Brexit gave us additional work at the beginning of the year due to the uncertain shipping situation. To make matters worse we had to put our warehouse in emergency mode for a total of six days in mid-February because the winter conditions made it impossible to work. Altogether no optimal conditions to guarantee a regular process flow.


Nevertheless, we are finally back with a full staff and now working extra shifts to clear the backlog. We know that this is demanding a lot of patience from our customers. But we assure you that your parcels are as important to us as they are to you and we are doing everything we can to clear the backlog as quickly as possible.

Emergency operation due to extraordinary weather conditions

Emergency operation due to extraordinary weather conditions

We do process

  • incoming packages after a 48-72 h
  • outgoing packages after 48-96 h
  • Concierge ist still working and will be done within 24 h weekdays. In case items are not available, your payment will be 100% refunded.
  • Consolidations will take 2-5 business days

(11.02.2021): Update – We have resumed regular operation

After the entire commercial yard of myGermany GmbH was covered with a 50 cm thick blanket of snow on Monday, February 8, we rebuilt the regular operation step by step. The snow was cleared, the electricity reconnected and the water in the pipes thawed. After not a single parcel carrier visited our warehouse on Monday and Tuesday, we were understandably graced with three times the amount of parcels on Wednesday and Thursday. Our team is working intensively on a coordinated process to cope with the increase in parcels.

We apologize to all customers who now need a little more patience for their packages. As long as a notification from the service provider has been sent, your package has arrived safely at our warehouse and is now waiting for the matching process.

(07.02.2021): Emergency operation due to extraordinary weather conditions

The center of Germany, and Thuringia in particular, are affected by a harsh onset of winter. Besides partly freezing rain with glassy roads, up to 50 cm of snow fell within few hours. Also, strong winds lead to drifts that partially paralyze road sections completely. Bus and train companies have temporarily suspended their services. In addition, the Thuringian state government has closed all schools at the beginning of the week. Children must be taken care of and taught at home.

As a result, employees may be limited or may not be able to come to work at all. Parcel service providers will also be unable to reach our warehouse until Wendnesday. Operations on a regular basis are not possible.

Therefore we apologize to all our customers that myGermany GmbH will be in emergency operation until Thursday, February 11 probably. We will accept all incoming parcels and process them within the possibilities of Express Shipments.

Unfortunately all other orders will be processed only once the overall situation has calmed down.

Suspension of DHL Economy Shipping method to Israel

Suspension of DHL Economy Shipping method to Israel

Effective immediately (20.01.2021): We no longer offer shipping to Israel via DHL Economy.

Even though it is our greatest good to offer a variety of different shipping providers to our customers, we had to realize that the benefit of DHL Economy is not in proportion to the expectations of our customers. Delivery times of up to 65 days do not reflect our promise to our customers of speedy processing and delivery. The reason for this is the transfer of DHL Economy to Israel Post on the soil of Israel. Here it comes increasingly to delays that are difficult to convey to our customers. Therefore, we take this delivery option out of our offer until further notice.

Of course, our other delivery options remain unchanged. Customers can still have their products and packages delivered via DHL Express, FedEx Economy, FedEx Express and DPD Express.

We say Thanks 2020 and Hello 2021

We say Thanks 2020 and Hello 2021

Rarely has a year been as crazy as 2020 and the expectations for the new year globally as promising as at this turn of the year. For myGermany GmbH, too, the past year was in every respect a meaningful, groundbreaking but also challenging one.

The COVID19 crisis initially caused our incoming and outgoing parcel volumes to plummet by 50% for regular parcels and by more than 80% for freight. Concerns arose as to how we should deal with this situation. But even before we had to change our personnel, the situation changed. More and more packages were arriving at the warehouse but could not be handed over for shipment. Our shipping partners were struggling with delivery conditions in their respective countries and also had to put packages on hold. An unfortunate chain reaction ensued and uncertainty spread. The situation was particularly difficult because the lockdown meant that our employees could only work reduced hours, in some cases not at all, as childcare had to be ensured thanks to closed schools and kindergartens. Our customer communication department had to work extra shifts because our customers understandably wanted their packages anyway, but we were only able to send them to a limited extent, and in some cases not at all.

With the increase in tasks and the amount of work on the parcel, we had to increase our team and retrain them. The crisis freed up personnel resources in other areas of the economy. Our team was thus able to be supplemented by wonderful people. Here we have been really lucky. With the summer off and the backlog cleared, we were able to turn our attention to processes in the warehouse. With a new warehouse system, we have since successfully met the increased demands and significantly increased the speed in the warehouse.

After a short breather and also some vacation for all employees, the Christmas business started creeping but nevertheless very clearly. With the growth in eCommerce in general, we were also surprised by the increase in packages. Our team struggled every day to process the parcels as best as possible, to consider every customer request and to deliver our customers their valuable parcel as fast and as safe as possible. With very few exceptions, we managed to do this very well. This is especially noteworthy as the situation in Germany is getting worse again with the Christmas season. Since December 13, Germany has been in a severe lockdown, which has brought public life to a virtual standstill. Kindergartens and schools are closed again and our employees are struggling day by day with every single minute to manage the balancing act between family, childcare, homeschooling and work.

We are extremely proud that we have succeeded in this way so far. Even though the lockdown will continue at least through January, we are confident that we as a team can withstand this extraordinary situation and look forward to 2021 with great confidence.

myGermany News in the Corona Crisis

Customers may expect transit delays for Intercontinental Economy and Economy Freightshipment from Europe to the US, Canada and Latin America

We anticipate temporary service delays due to some unexpected surge in volume in our and our carriers (DHL, FEDEX, UPS, DPD, DBSchenker) network. For the shipments collected today, customers may experience service delays of up to 48-72 hours vs. quoted transit time for our Intercontinental Economy, Express and Freight services from Europe to the US, Canada and Latin America regions at origin. Contingency plans are in place to resume our regular service schedule as swiftly as possible.

Extension of lockdown in Germany and phased program to return to normality

The measures to combat the Corona crisis were extended again. Until March 7, the restrictions of contacts to just one person from ouside the own household, the obligation to wear FFP2 masks in public life, distance rules, closed schools/ kindergarden, catering, culture and retail, as well as the obligation to the home office where possible, continue to apply. At the beginning of March, a phased plan will be launched, describing what restictions can be soften up.
That means that myGermany GmbH is still unable to operate at full capacity. We still have to work with the lack of the employees who are in childcare. Processes take more time and the home office makes communication and process flow more difficult.

We continue to ask for your understanding and patience and also assure you that we will do everything we can to ensure a fast and smooth process.

BREXIT Shipments from EU to UK (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland)

From 6th March 2020 onwards: Export ban on medical protective equipment

The year 2020 had begun with a contagious and fatal lung disease called Corona Virus or COVID2019 in the Wuhan region of China. When the virus had not yet left China and it was not yet foreseeable how it would spread, we, myGermany GmbH, helped to contain the spread. We made it possible for customers from China and the Asian region to buy face masks and disinfectants and then delivered them to you.

What an honour for myGermany GmbH!

We have achieved a lot in 2019: our account has been further developed, interfaces have been programmed, the marketplace is ready and we have been present at many interesting events. We have proven that our topic of Cross Boarder shipping is becoming more and more interesting for Germany, the German economy and German retailers.

Therefore, the year 2020 could not have started better than Horst Köhler was able to personally introduce former German Federal Presidents to our idea and our previous success in the framework of the Acclerator Program Startport.

We are overwhelmed by this unique opportunity and therefore look forward to the new year all the more euphorically and confidently.

What means Dimensional or Volumetric weight? 


The dimensional weight is used as the base for calculation for carriage by air. This weight relies upon the size of the packaging of the parcel used by the seller. The dimensional weight is an easy method to calculate the actual air freight space needed for movement or transfer of goods, which can be lighter in weight and heavy at the same time. After all that, both the dimensional weight and the actual weight get compared and the higher one will be used to calculate the freight cost. 

  • The dimensional or volumetric weight

The actual weight and dimensional weight of parcel get compared and after that which gets higher value used to determine the freight charges. So, we can say that if the size of your light container is larger then it may cost you higher. This means that a lightweight photo frame may turn out costlier than a heavy LED because the frame is bigger in size and volume than the small television. 

  • The Girth Measure

The girth measure is measured on the basis of the package’s circumference o.r. Length*Width*Height. The shipping partners of myGermany has specified some limits if the package cross those limits then the shipping cost will be affected and it will get charged according to the applicable rate class. The exceeding limits of length of the package differ from country to country. 


No Volumetric Weight – You Pay Only What You See


With UPS Standard/Express and DHL Weltpaket Economy /Premium methods myGermany estimates and charges its members based on package weight ONLY* for international shipments. Other shipping companies use a complicated calculation based on dimensional (or volumetric) weight.

What is dimensional or volumetric weight?
The dimensional weight is the calculation basis for carriage by air. The dimensional weight is related to the size of the packing used by the seller. The dimensional weight provides an easy way to calculate the actual air freight space required for the transportation of goods, which may be low in weight and bulky at the same time. The dimensional weight of the shipment is compared with the actual weight, whereas the higher value is used to determine the freight cost or rate.
This means that a lightweight picture frame may turn out more expensive than a heavy television. Why? Because the picture frame is larger in size and volume than the small television.

Marketplace Introduction at PWC – The Scale Programme – Investor Event in Berlin 06/2019

Marketplace Introduction at PWC – The Scale Programme – Investor Event in Berlin 06/2019

myGermany GmbH releases new Marketplace and Sowftare plans at the PWC Scale Program in Berlin 
Company presentation infront of international investors

Infront of a more than 100 visors, corporate partners and investors, myGermany GmbH presented the new Marketlace solution After tripling the turnover was discussed, Sebastian Meier, CMO myGermany, gin into the full and explained the new groundbreaking solution. From 2020, German retailers will be able to present their products on the marketplace platform.

Sales to international end customers have never been so easy: as an international fulfillment service provider, the marketplace/platform/online shop brings German dealers and international end customers together – myGermany market and sell dealers’ products to foreign customers, taking over the entire logistics process including customs clearance, so that neither dealers nor end customers have to fear the hurdles and risks of international shipping.

German (especially small and medium-sized) retailers shy away from the expense and risk of addressing an international market. In particular, much higher shipping and packaging prices, ignorance of customs or export/import laws, warranty processing or returns and specific local marketing approaches pose problems. takes care of these tasks for retailers: on the marketplace, myGermany handles online sales (including translation of the article presentation into English and other languages), communication and logistics on their own. myGermany is the buyer for the dealer and the seller for the end customer. So the dealer does not have to deal with the hurdles of the international sales and shipping processes.

The aim should be to address above all small and medium-sized dealers whose products do not exist abroad.
For international end customers, the platform offers a wide range of German products from a single source at affordable purchase and shipping prices. Another unique feature is consolidation: end customers can have articles from different retailers packaged and shipped in one package. Instead of several expensive parcels, sending one parcel that is delivered quickly and cheaply to your door thanks to their framework agreements with FedEx, DHL, UPS, DPD and GLS.
The concept of parcel forwarding has only existed for about 20 years, coming from the USA. The German market is still a very young market with only 2-3 serious suppliers. The idea is based on the idea of parcel forwarding (pure logistics) and extends it by the eCommerce aspect: international online trade and dispatch from one source.

Target group: small and medium-sized German retailers with simple, inexpensive or exclusive self-made products.
With the knowledge and shipping volume myGermany can offer shipping and customs processes (including the preparation of the necessary export and import certificates) quickly and cheaply. In addition, the high shipping volume enables us to offer packaging and shipping prices (with frame contracts DHL, FedEx, UPS, DPD, GLS etc.) that are simply not possible for individual traders. They advertise the marketplace in English, Russian, Japanese, Chinese and Arabic in the social media, via newsletters, internal and external (“influencers”) blog articles and build landing pages for dealers for the SEM search engine marketing – thus they also take over the international marketing for the dealers.

Target group of foreign end customers.
Made-in-Germany is a term for many of the 7 billion people in the world. The Onlineshop offers not only a market place with many so far hardly or not at all available products, but also simple, fast and favorable dispatch options with proven partners such as DHL, FedEx, UPS, DPD, GLS etc.. The marketing happens in the important world languages English, Russian, Japanese, Chinese and Arabic. It has never been so easy for the foreign end customer to get products from German dealers at German/affordable prices!

The price of German products depends on the dealer, myGermany calculates a maximum of 5-10% additional cost per sale, there are no monthly fees for dealers.
The shipping depends on weight and destination country, generally can be estimated: to European countries the average is 20-50 EUR, worldwide about 40-150 EUR. This means affordable prices for the average consumer.

myGermany wants to start in the first year acquiring at least 100 dealers and expect a dispatch of approx. 5,000-10,000 packages, which corresponds to an annual turnover of approx. 500,000 to 600,000 EUR. Outside capital must be acquired. myGermany has warehouse, shipping, web technology and marketing knowledge in various languages.
Goal is to reach an annual turnover of 2-3 Mio EUR within 3 years, annually increasing with an increasing / expanding marketing portfolio. The most important criterion will be the establishment of international localized marketing channels – here they are pursuing the goal of a franchise concept that will be established as soon as they have established stable processes.

The new marketplace will be released in 2020.

Freight Forwarder Facts You Need To Know

Freight Forwarder Facts You Need To Know

A freight forwarder or forwarding agent is a company or a person who organizes shipments for individuals or other corporations to get goods from the manufacturer or producer to a market. Forwarders contract with a carrier or often multiple carriers to move the goods. A forwarder does not move the goods but acts as an expert in the logistics network. These carriers include ships, airplanes, trucks and railroads and they also use multiple modes for a single shipment.

Freight forwarders typically function as intermediaries between the businesses that hire them, and the various transportation services responsible for getting their products to overseas customers, including carriers, handlers and customs officials. The quantity of agents associated with conveying things from providers to clients, to a great extent relies upon the last goal of the shipments and the idea of the items sold. Be that as it may, the general target is dependably the equivalent, to guarantee the conveyance of flawless items, by indicated dates.

How some countries celebrate Valentine’s Day

Although some countries don’t mark valentine day, many countries around the universe commemorate this day and mark it like no other. Some of the countries that mark a day like this include the United States of America, Japan, South Korean, Germany, Japan, Italy, Brazil, etc. Below are ways some of these countries do celebrate the valentine day.


The Traditions of Valentine’s Day are a little bit different and unique from nation to nation. We have some examples for you:

Germany: None of Valentine’s day origin have something to do with Germany, but things changed after world war II. This lover’s day has become so popular in France and England but managed to missed Germany. So after war II, when English, French, and France occupied Germany, they brought some of their traditions among which are Valentine and Halloween in fact, things start to blow after the first valentine’s Ball took place in Nuremberg in 1950.

Valentine’s Day is not as popular as in the United States, but it is celebrated nearly like theirs. The main difference is, it tends to be an adult holiday in Germany. It is the day for couples, and it is customary for the man to present his precious gifts to show his love. Valentine’s gifts in Germany are in the shape of love tokens, with lovely messages. Lovers will exchange not only chocolates, flowers, and heart-shaped gifts, but a something special for this celebration a pig. This pig represents luck and can be given in the form of, as a statue, in chocolate or however one sees fit. But these gifts are not restricted to Valentine’s Day celebrations and can be gifted on any occasion of a joyous nature.

USA: On the 14th of every year is valentine’s day. Most countries celebrate this day with loved ones, but the case is quite different in the United States. English emigrants bring this tradition into the USA and this day is preferably celebrated with greeting cards, rose, chocolates, candies and sweets for the soulmate. Especially dinner and dance parties are organized all over the country to celebrate this occasion. Most valentine gift boxes are heart-shaped and tied with red ribbon. In the US, children celebrate Valentine’s Day with great enthusiasm with keeping their interest in many schools hold Valentine’s Day programs where these students perform songs, dance, skits, and plays. Adults also give greeting cards to coworkers, friends, and family.

Japan: On Valentine’s Day in Japan the women present their husband, male fellows, and chiefs some chocolate, but they get some white chocolate at the 14th march back. In Japan, women give chocolates or gifts to their loved ones to express love. Gifting chocolates is a popular way to celebrate Valentine’s day in Japan as chocolate is the most popular gift in the country. Gift shops all over Japan fill their shelves with chocolate a month before Valentine’s Day. All the men who receive grants or chocolates Valentine’s day should give back the favor to the women on March 14, precisely a month after Valentine’s Day.

Italy: The Valentine’s Day mainly seems as holiday imported from the USA like Halloween, and the couples celebrate this day with some cute gifts or go out for dinner. The day is celebrated by the young people who take this opportunity to confess love to their sweethearts the American way with gifts like perfume, chocolates, flowers, cards or jewelry. The day is seen here earmarked exclusively for lovers, and hence, family members and friends do not exchange gifts.


Brazil: Since Carnival, the most prominent Brazilian celebration, is often held in the same month, Brazilians generally skip the February 14th festivities, and celebrate Lovers Day (Dia dos Namorados) on June 12th. Chocolates, cards, romantic meals, and gestures are exchanged, in addition to large scale musical concerts and festivals. The next day pays homage to Saint Anthony, the patron saint of marriage.

Denmark: Instead of the bouquet of red roses they associate with February 14th, Danes gift each other pressed white snowdrop flowers and “lover’s cards.” Another popular Danish Valentine’s tradition is the gaekkebrev, a joking poem or letter that men write to women and sign anonymously with dots. If the woman guesses who sent it, she’s awarded an Easter egg a few months later. Valentine’s Day, meet the long game.

Finland: Unlike countries like the United States and Italy where Valentine’s day matter, the citizen of Finland do not make a big deal of the day. You will be looked at suspiciously if you make any particular love gesture to your lover. The day is called Ystävänpäivä and stand for “Day for the friends.” In Finland, every 14th of each year has little to do with couples or lovers, but yet, it is celebrated.

China: The Chinese celebrate Valentine’s Day like other countries with some cute gifts for their soulmate meanwhile. Especially the young people party this day very frisky. The day is popularly known as the Qi Xi or Qiqiao Festival which means valentine’s day. The history of Chinese lover’s day can be traced back to between 206 and 220 BC when two lovers, Niulang and Zhinu, was forbidden to live together and was sentenced to live in the opposite sides of the silver water.

The Chinese have different date history to the lovers day. Their valentine day is believed to have started 220 BC which means it is much older than our Valentine’s day whose history goes back to 496 AD.

Instead of buying flowers for loved ones, single Chinese women go to temple, pray for blessings, knitting knowledge which symbolizes a good wife and finally ask for a good husband.

English: This idea goes back to an old tradition where couples present each other some flowers and poems. The most valuable Valentine’s Day gift is pastries and sweets made with your own hands. There is a tradition of baking a cake in the shape of a heart, which is given to the loved one.

The British do not make expensive gifts. They buy chocolate sweets, various sweets, and soft toys, among which Teddy bears are the most popular. As for valentines, anonymous valentines still are given. Confessions of love can be often seen in British newspapers and local magazines. Flowers are a must-have gift for Valentine’s Day, a symbol of sympathy, tenderness, and love. The color of roses and their number in the bouquet have different meanings — scarlet roses are given to a girlfriend or a boyfriend; yellow and white — to acquaintances and relatives. They also extend their cards and gifts to their relatives.

Ideas for the perfect gift:


Love goes not only through the stomach, but sometimes also through the nose. Maybe your partner showed you the favorite fragrance in a perfumery?! This is a sign and your chance to make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to your soulmate.

Get your lover some sweet smell perfumes and brighten up his/her day every time he/she uses it. The perfume will not only serve a valentine’s day but also serve as a reminder of your love anytime it is seen or smell.

Second Warehouse & New High Racks

Second Warehouse & New High Racks

In January 2018 myGermany decided to build up a second warehouse, which is directly linked to the existing facility. Several new high racks were set up, so the same logistic management infrastructure and software can be used as in the existing facility.

“We process each week more and more packages, between 200 and 400 per day!” is Lutz Winning, Head of Warehouse, stating the subsequently increasing package and freight requests. After myGermany moved into a larger warehouse beginning 2017, soon the “old” warehouse became too small and new scope was needed. Thus, myGermany searched for new options and luckily was able to rent one attached building. The myGermany warehouses in Weimar are now 2000 sqm.

Thanks to our staff and our family members 10 new nigh racks could be built up in a dawn raid.

Well, shipment of any kind of your package is not a herculean task anymore. And I am saying this with my personal experience. And I am glad to have one worth sharing all because of myGermany.

Since I am a spare part dealer, I was wondering as to how to ship the spare parts of a truck that is due for a delivery from my place to a place located far off. And I was also apprehensive whether it would be easy to ship such large and heavy parts to a far-fetched corner. But, since it was a pending order, I had to do it anyway.

After so much of brainstorming, I ended up finding out that myGermany provides all the requirements that I wanted. I was quite elated to discover that all my requirements can be easily met by this shipment forum. I was amazed to know that they offer such a wide plethora of shipment services and that too to very far off places. Also, it also takes up the guarantee of safe delivery of the package irrespective of its nature and size to the final destination.

I then went on to place an order for my package shipment with this portal and I was amazed to see their quick response to all my queries. Although I was skeptical a bit when they took off the spare parts that were to be shipped. But, when I saw that they took the parts on to the processing place with utmost care, I was a bit convinced about their services. And it was just so astonishing to know that my spare parts of the truck got delivered on time to the concerned person. Furthermore, I got to know that they were in the right frame and were delivered in the most effective and efficient manner.

I was so impressed with their quick delivery and response time that I now get all my packages delivered whether local or international through them only. And it is a very rare case whereby the shipment company also takes the due feedback from you, but it was done so by this portal. And I am extremely happy to be associated with myGermany for the safe delivery of my packages.
