Well, you'd have to go to the post office and get a Post Office Box (you can't just randomly have packages shipped there ). Commercial couriers won't ship to post office boxes, as they have to be signed directly by the recipient, but if it's being shipped via EMS (or SAL, etc.) then it'll be transferred to your country's postal mail service, and they can generally do that. When you go to get the P.O. Box you might want to discuss with the rep there what they'll do in case there are taxes/duty owing on the package (I imagine they'll just hold it for pick-up instead).

At the end of the day, if it's going to be EMS/SAL, if you're not home when they attempt to make the delivery, they'll just hold it at the post office anyway (at least in most countries AFAIK), so there probably isn't much point/benefit.
