A shipment to Argentina is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as
hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air
Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) or other relevant organisation.
Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently
forbidden for transport.
The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.
Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during
transit or any associated automated distribution process.
Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted

The fact that RapidParcel.com is a web-based service has allowed us to streamline the process of shipping to Rosario to a degree that would have been unthinkable a few short years ago. It also means we can utilise new technology to allow customers to monitor their Rosario parcel delivery until theyâ€™re certain itâ€™s arrived safely, and this applies to both single consignments of a personal nature and also to larger volume corporate deliveries. We appreciate, however, that some people still feel uneasy about giving their payment details to a website, and so we go to great lengths to ensure that this aspect of our parcel delivery to Rosario is as excellent as the rest.
Rosario is one of Argentinaâ€™s major shipping centres, thanks to the presence of the Parana River and a 34ft deep port. Amongst the many goods exported from Rosario are lumber, flour, hay, meats, vegetable oils, corn, sugar, wheat, hides and wool. The city also boasts a broad industrial base, featuring, amongst other things, thriving iron, automobile parts, oil bottling, agricultural machinery and chemical industries. This has led to foreign companies such as Unilever, Petrobas, General Motors, ICI and Dow settling in the city. Argentinaâ€™s largest technological centre, the Polo TecnolÃ³gico Rosario, is also situated in Rosario, which specialises in research and development in the fields of software development, telecommunications and biotechnology.
Security is our priority throughout every aspect of our service
Security can take many forms. It may be the security of knowing that your Rosario shipping is being handled by one of the worldâ€™s leading couriers, because only the best are allowed on our website. The security you crave might also take the form of being able to monitor your parcel through each part of its journey via our website rather than, as with many other courier companies, having to wait until it arrives to receive confirmation of its safety. For many, however, security is rooted in the way in which your payment details are handled. Our payment partner, WorldPay, is one of the most trusted payment processors available. Each day they handle millions of payments from all four corners of the planet, and each individual payment is subject to fifty separate checks. What this means is that when you book your delivery with RapidParcel.com you can be certain that your personal details will be treated with the same care, security and respect as your package delivery itself..
It's the same for every payment you make to us, whether itâ€™s for a package delivery to Rosario, a Cordoba parcel delivery or a package delivery to Buenos Aires, you can be certain that your personal details will remain secure and safe.
It's all about removing worries and concerns from the customer â€“ whether itâ€™s seeking out the best courier, negotiating the best deal, tracking your shipping to Rosario or ensuring that your personal details remain just that, we take the worry out of parcel delivery.
Finally, we make sending your package all the more affordable than with any other service.
