In the era of globalization, buying and selling activities no longer occur between sellers and buyers in shopping centers. However, this activity can be done anywhere and anytime. Online shopping system is already familiar even though some people still do not know the complicated process that goes on behind it.

One of them is the use of shipping services (expeditions). For online sellers, this may have become an easy and familiar activity. However, this still seems complicated to some people.

In addition to packing goods, another thing that should not be forgotten is to write the detailed destination address. If the address is incomplete, it is possible that your package would not arrive or could even be lost.

The Right Way To Write Destination Address

Address is an important part of shipping service. There are some tips that you can understand as below:

Writing Destination Address

Phone number:

Looks simple, right? Well, writing the address becomes crucial if it is not detail. Make sure you include the things below:

  • Street name
  • RT and RW
  • Village
