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.

World Customs Organisation


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 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.


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:


Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to Germany, 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 organise shipping to Hannover and you don’t want it to take up any more of your valuable time than is strictly necessary, then the RapidParcel.com courier comparison website is the best place to come. Not only do we go to great lengths to ensure your Hannover parcel delivery is dealt with safely, securely and with the respect you’d expect from the top courier companies but we also use our experience and willingness to embrace new technology to make the whole process of arranging your shipping as simple and easy to use as possible.

Hannover is one of the most important cities in Germany, thanks in no small part to its role as a significant transport hub. Several of the country’s major autobahns meet at junctions in and around Hannover, as do major European railway lines, and the city itself is famed for its ultra-stylish bus and tramway systems. These excellent transport facilities have doubtless helped lead to the emergence of Hannover as one of Europe’s, indeed the world’s, leading conference venues, with more than 60 national and international conferences taking place there every year. If not drawn by business matters, visitors may well travel to Hannover to see the famous city zoo or the Hannover Fairground, which is the largest in the world.

Once you’ve decided you need to make a parcel delivery to Hannover, you’ll want to be certain you get the best deal possible, in terms of both standards of service and value for money.
