Customs Advice

The importation of certain products into a country is restricted in order to protect the economy and safety of its citizens. The restrictions may be imposed by Customs or by any other agency which has regulatory authority.

We provide a shipping service only and Customs at the parcel's destination will determine whether any charges are payable on your package. All duties, taxes and/or quarantine fees applied are at the discretion of local customs or governmental organisations and are out of our control.

If the addressee refuses to pay duties/taxes, the parcel may be held, returned (if allowed by Customs) or destroyed, and additional costs may be incurred. As per Terms and Conditions, those charges will be billed to the sender.

Please note, no shipping costs are recoverable for parcels held or destroyed, even if shipping protection cover has been purchased.

Majority of parcels can be delivered door to door, once it has cleared customs at destination. However, some countries have a door to airport service only. In those countries, the recipients may have to present themselves to either Customs or the local courier's office to take possession of their consignment.

We advise you to verify independently, all Customs, Governmental and Quarantine regulations. These rules can and do frequently change without prior notice or recourse.

Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI)

It is now a requirement that all exporters sending freight outside of the E.U must have an EORI number if they are VAT registered.

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Belgium, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

AWB (Courier Air Waybills - barcode) - Proforma or Commercial invoice - Address label.

The above documents are standard for any international shipment.

Please note, if additional documentation is required for the import of any particular item, it is the customer's responsibility to provide them at destination.

Restrictions

Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to Belgium 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.

Packing Advice

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 facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:

Please note that the declared value for customs purposes is not related to the declared value selected for Shipment Protection. We encourage all customers to purchase shipment protection cover for loss or damage.

The fact that our courier comparison website is the best out there is down to many things. Our size means that we're equally at home making a single, one-off package delivery to Liege, as we are shipping to Liege on a regular basis for larger corporate customers. We use the latest in technology to streamline the booking process down to its bare essentials, meaning that booking a Liege parcel delivery is as speedy and simple a process as possible and we only work with couriers we know we can really trust, thus reassuring our customers that their Liege package delivery is in the safest possible hands. Though we treat every separate package delivery to Liege with the utmost care and attention, it's when we work with corporate customers who need to use our services over and over again that our experience and expertise really come into their own.

The Belgian city of Liege is situated in Wallonia, the French speaking part of the country and in the past has been a major regional centre for steel production. Although this particular industry has declined in recent years, it is still a major part of the city's economy, alongside manufacturing industries, particularly in the fields of aircraft and spacecraft engine manufacture, information technology and bio-technology. The confluence of several different transport hubs within Liege has made it a major centre for shipping throughout Europe. It boasts the third largest river port in Europe, with direct connections to Antwerp, Rotterdam and Germany, and the eighth largest cargo airport in the continent.

It's easy to see, then, that there are many reasons a business might wish to organise shipping to Liege on a regular basis and at RapidParcel.com we go out of our way to make sure that the service corporate customers receive is second to none. As well as the features you might take for granted, such as secure handling of your Liege parcel delivery and special rates to encourage bulk shipping, we like to think that we provide the hands-on personal touches that make arranging your Liege shipping though us a wholly pleasant experience. That's why corporate customers are given the direct telephone number of a named member of staff who'll be on hand throughout the process, and will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding your parcel delivery to Liege.

This service is available to all our corporate clients, so if you're sending a parcel delivery to Charleroi or need to make more than one package delivery to Ghent as well as, or instead of, arranging shipping to Liege, you'll find yourself able to take advantage of a service that includes the best couriers in the business, specially negotiated rates that won't be matched elsewhere and the personal attentions of your own adviser. Put simply, RapidParcel.com provides everything a corporate client could possibly need.
