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.

If you have any queries regarding the EORI application process then please visit the HMRC website.

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Finland, 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 Finland 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:

Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to Finland, you will be able to choose an appropriate level of cover for your shipment. We offer enhanced parcel protection for up to £2000 for a small additional fee.

If you do not purchase enhanced Shipment Protection, your shipment will be only covered to a maximum value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our Terms & Conditions and subject to your parcel passing minimum packaging requirements.

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.

When you need to make a package delivery to Helsinki there are certain things that you'll naturally be looking for - couriers you can trust, a booking procedure that doesn't take up too much time and a price that won't break the bank. At RapidParcel.com, we think of things like these as being just the basics of the shipping business - the sort of thing that you can take for granted when arranging a Helsinki package delivery through us. Having provided these basics, we go out of our way to offer a whole range of other features, which truly make our service the best around.

Helsinki is the official capital city of Finland and, as such, it is the centre of the country's financial, cultural and political life to such a degree that 70% of the overseas businesses based in Finland have positioned themselves in or near Helsinki. The city generates up to a third of the country's GDP, due in no small part to the fact that 83 of Finland's 100 largest companies are based there and this commercial and industrial centralisation is one of the factors driving the ongoing high demand for shipping to Helsinki.

Convenience and simplicity, it's something new to the courier sector

When you want to send a parcel delivery to Helsinki, whether for personal or commercial reasons, our website makes the whole process as convenient as possible. We use current technology to make life easier for our customers, not just easier for us, and we pass on the savings in time and money to you in the form of a streamlined, simplified booking process which involves just six easy steps between you and the despatch of your Helsinki shipping.

Drop-off points add a new dimension to our carrier service

We realise, however, that no matter how easy we make things, there are still some people who would feel more comfortable with one-to-one personal handling of their Helsinki package delivery. As ever, we're keen to meet the needs of every single one of our customers, and that's why we run dedicated drop-off points across the UK. Situated in easy-to-find places such as airports and train stations, these drop-off points are run by experienced members of staff who'll be able to talk you through every aspect of booking a Helsinki parcel delivery. With their help, you'll get answers to any questions you might have and reassurance as to the safety and security of the goods you're shipping to Helsinki. They'll also be in a position to point out the wide range of extras that we offer, such as a dedicated blog and online tracking. In addition, many of the centres feature shops selling packaging materials, so if you're at all concerned about the safety of your Helsinki parcel delivery you'll be able to wrap it in such a way as to ensure that it arrives in perfect condition

We never let the fact that we're a hi-tech website obscure the reality that this, like any business, is all about people, and if you want the personal touch, we're happy to provide it. You might think that all of this service will come with a high price tag, but actually RapidParcel.com offers the best couriers and leading service for an incredibly competitive rate no matter where in the world you are sending your personal or commercial packages. Just take a look at the table below to see some of the examples we have gathered for Helsinki alone.
