Liam here from Shopify - thank you for your question :)
Kong Hong Post is a popular courier company with our merchants and you can even integrate an app to take care of the tracking and sending updates to customers when you use Kong Hong Post. Aftership will connect with Kong Hong Post, as well as other Asian courier companies, to keep your customers updated on the status of their purchases.
Hope this helps, if you have any other questions, just let me know!

Good luck! Felix
ZhenHub does shipping directly from Hong Kong. We have greatly discounted rates from DHL, UPS and Fedex. If you need more economical options you can take a look at our direct air freight lines as well.
If you have an account and are shipping volume, a better way would be to use an established carrier like UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc. As and when you provide more and more volume, you can go back to the carrier and ask for renegotiation of the contract to get better discounted rates. Once that is done, shipping would be very cheap for you. However, this is definitely not a fast process. It would usually take 6-8 months to get some sort of results with this approach.
