Shipping

PCB International ships via United Parcel Service (UPS) for all United States based customers. UPS maintains the best on-shipping record in the industry and we believe it is worth the cost premium. To make sure our customers always enjoy the best pricing, we pay a sizable portion of the true shipping cost. For our international customers, we use a mixture of shipping couriers i.e. UPS, DHL, and Fedex (dependant on your location). Additional shipping notes:

  • Tracking number will be provided by your sales representive after order has shipped.
  • We encourage customers to combine multiple orders into one shipment whenever possible. This will reduce shipping costs (please make arrangements with your sales representative).
  • For customers outside of the United States, please be aware of your local taxes and duties. PCB International is not resposible for these fees and must be taken care of on the customer side.

Lead Time

Per general standards of the circuit board industry, lead time is defined as the number of days between when your order is placed up until the time your order is shipped. The day an order is processed and confirmed to customer is counted as Day 0. PCB International has a 5:00 pm PT cutoff time for all orders. Orders placed prior to 5:00 pm PT (on standard business days) will be started on the day the order was placed (Day 0). Orders placed after the cutoff time will be started the following business day. Weekends and holidays are not counted as build days.

Lead Time Calculation Example:
An order with a two day build-time submitted on Monday after 5 PM PT
Day 1: Tuesday 4 PM through Wednesday 5 PM.
Day 2: Wednesday 4 PM through Thursday 5 PM.
Your order will ship Thursday afternoon.
