Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on
A shipment to Canada 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
facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A
to B safely.

value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our
Terms & Conditions and subject to your

We like to think that RapidParcel.com is the perfect courier comparison and booking website for someone to come to if they've never sent a parcel to Quebec City before, due to the way in which we keep the process straightforward and are on hand to offer help and advice every step of the way. Our corporate customers, in particular, are more used to the complexities sometimes thrown up by the world of international shipping, and with a dedicated corporate customer agent at the end of the phone they can book safe in the knowledge that we offer the best possible service for their Quebec City shipping needs.
In this age of globalisation and connectivity, it's easy to imagine that virtually all business deals can be done online and, while this is often the case, there are still plenty of occasions when a sale will depend on an actual object or hard copy paperwork being sent overseas, and it's then that knowing how well we'll handle your package delivery will put your mind at ease.
Quebec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec and, with a population of just under half a million it is the second most populous city in the region after Montreal. The city is prosperous, with an unemployment rate below that of the national average. Many jobs are in the government sector, reflecting the city's role as an administrative centre, but it also has a thriving manufacturing sector, concentrated on the production of items such as paper, electrical equipment and processed food.
If you have business interests linked to Quebec, there are many reasons you might need to make a delivery to Quebec. For example it could be that you have a new component that a factory is interested in installing. Obviously plans, descriptions and blueprints will tell part of the story, but in order to truly close the deal you'll have to put the component in the hands of your prospective client. That's when you need a courier company that you know will handle your parcel delivery quickly and efficiently.
