  • UPS Express (1-3 business days)
  • Saver (2-3 business days)
  • Expedited (2-5 business days)
  • Standard (US 48 to Mexico)

Please note: The cost calculated during the order process is for shipping only and does not include any additional costs associated with importing your package. CCS cannot be held responsible for any costs you incur for brokerage, customs, duties, taxes, or other fees. For Canada only, the cost calculated during the order process includes shipping, brokerage, and all duties/taxes.

To avoid these costs, software can be downloaded from our website. We also have a large network of international distributors that offer many of our products.

I want my package shipped USPS, FedEx or DHL.

If you do not have your own shipping account number, contact CCS by phone or email us at to request a custom quote for these shipping methods.

If you want to use your own shipping account number, supply CCS with your FedEx or DHL account number and specify the shipment method. Write the number in the order comments or via email. Please include postal code for billing.

Please note: If you choose to use your FedEx account number, you will be charged an additional $3.25 in the handling fee for CCS.

To place an order using one of these shipping methods, please add your request in the comment box on the checkout shipping page indicating your preferred shipping method and courier account number if applicable. The order will not be processed online so the shipping costs and total will be different.
