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 Brazil 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:

At RapidParcel.com we realise that the key to providing an excellent Brasilia package delivery every time is flexibility. If you need to make a delivery to Brasilia, then you'll want to use a courier comparison website that sees tailoring their shipping service to suit your every need as the norm, rather than an added extra. That's why we're equally at home helping individuals, who may be making their first and only Brasilia parcel delivery and are looking for a company that keeps things simple whilst ensuring quality, and corporate customers, who may need shipping to Brasilia in bulk quantities and on a regular basis. For both of these customers we offer a service that is secure, prompt and offers value for money, but for corporate customers we boast extra features, which help to ensure the smooth running of their business.

Brasilia is the capital city of the South American country of Brazil, and has a population of over two and a half million people. Rare amongst capital cities around the world, Brasilia was planned, developed and built as recently as 1956, and only officially became the capital city in 1960. The whole of the Brazilian government is based in the city, as well as big national companies such as Brasil Telecom, Caixa Econômica and Federal Banco do Brasil. Much of the economic activity of the city is driven by service industries, such as government, finance, communications and information technology, whilst other industries operating within the city include construction, food processing and pharmaceuticals.

A courier comparison service that's flexible to your needs

Brasilia is one of South America's major cities and is therefore a key destination for shipping in its own right and as a gateway to the rest of the continent. Your business may need our help to arrange its deliveries on a regular basis to supply hard copy paperwork to partners out there, or to organise package delivery to Brasilia to supply components needed by a South American factory with whom you're working. Whatever the reason, if shipping to Brasilia is a major part of your business then you'll be glad to have found RapidParcel.com, a company that understands the corporate world's parcel delivery needs. That understanding is what leads us to offer facilities such as bulk upload, allowing you to arrange package delivery to Brasilia to multiple addresses via one simple procedure, and dedicated one-on-one corporate support.

In these tough financial times, many of our business customers take advantage of our corporate credit facilities to ease any concerns they may have regarding cash flow. Although subject to status, this facility, if offered, will give you the reassurance of having our company not only dealing with your package delivery to Brasilia, but also backing you with its financial strength. The same facility is available for shipping throughout South America, so a parcel delivery to Salvador or a package delivery to Rio de Janeiro will come with the same convenience, meaning there's really no excuse for corporate customers not to be logging on to RapidParcel.com today.

Another way in which we have improved the convenience of our service is the development of our Mobisite, a mobile-optimised website that offers you all of the benefits of our full website but on your mobile device while you are out and about. Accessible from the same web address as our main website you will be able to search for, select and book your next delivery and arrange for a courier collection no matter where you are.
