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)

Documents Needed

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

If you need to organise a delivery to Bremen then it may be that the security of your package is at the forefront of your mind. Perhaps it’s an important item that you’re shipping to Bremen and you want to be one hundred per cent certain that it arrives unscathed and in one piece. On the other hand, you may be working to a strict budget and looking for the best value for money available when arranging your package delivery. Whatever your requirements, they’ll be met by our premier courier comparison website, and this is especially true if your Bremen parcel delivery has to arrive as soon as possible.

Bremen is situated in the north-west of Germany and boasts both a population of over half a million people and a large port on the river Weser, only 60km from the North Sea, which has helped boost its development as a leading commercial and industrial centre. Every year, tourists are drawn to Bremen by, among other things, the medieval Old Town, with its gothic buildings and picturesque market square, and attractions such as the Universum Science Centre and the Kunsthalle Bremen Art Museum, while businesses such as Mercedes Benz, Kellogg’s, Kraft Foods and Airbus draw in commercial travellers.

Swift and simple courier booking service

We have been arranging shipping to Bremen and many other international destinations for over a quarter of a century, a long-term track record that enables us to offer an unrivalled service. The couriers we work with are names you’ll recognise instantly and that’s because we choose to put your Bremen delivery in the hands of only the best carriers in the business. The length of time we’ve been working with these couriers means we have total trust in the service they offer and are also in a position to negotiate the most competitive rates available. Whether it’s a contract that needs signing or a birthday present that has to be there for a loved one’s special day, there are times when the top priority for your Bremen package delivery is that it makes its way to the destination as quickly as possible. That’s why we offer 24 hour delivery to the majority of European destinations, meaning that your Bremen shipping will arrive within a day of your booking.

The whole process couldn’t be simpler – consult the website, search through our unrivalled range of couriers to find the deal that suits you best and then complete the booking of your parcel delivery to Bremen. As stated earlier, next-day delivery applies across the whole of Europe, as well as North America and Canada, so a package delivery to Dusseldorf or a Stuttgart parcel delivery will be dealt with in the same swift, efficient manner. Choose your deal, make your booking and then relax, secure in the knowledge that your Bremen parcel delivery will be arriving by the same time tomorrow.

Of course there are also times when budget is more important than speed, and for these times we offer our Economy service. The same dedication to quality of customer care and the safe delivery of your items while taking a tad longer to arrive allows for cost savings to be achieved.
