Post Question about shipping formats (LW vs EA)

From what I’ve gathered I think I am being charged for EMS express but the company is sending to me via Epacket

My old tracking shows
EA9210**199CN - package came in fast time, no issues

Now, paying the same amount and opting for EMS express

Regarding the actual tracking, I’m not worried about it but from what I have researched

If the tracking starts with L, it’s e-packet
If it starts with E, it’s express

Can someone help me to confirm this or correct me if I’m mistaken? I’ve had issues with this company shipping items in a timely manner and I think I’m being taken advantage of.

Thank you.

You are right LW**CN is ePacket. ePacket is operated by CHINA Post EMS and USPS. from China to USA, it is EMS and after arriving USA, it becomes USPS first class mail while EMS will become USPS priority mail. So EMS has high priority to do import customs clearance and US domestic delivery. It is more expensive than ePacket.
