Restrictions

Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to India 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:

In the past, somebody arranging a package delivery to Hyderabad would be in the dark from the moment they handed over their parcel until it arrived at its destination.

It's hard to know where to begin when describing the bustling metropolis that is Hyderabad, the sixth most populous city in India. Its nickname is 'Cyberabad', a reference to the major role it plays in the country's burgeoning information technology industry, and the city is also home to the Telugu film industry, the second largest in India which is referred to as 'Tollywood'. A mark of the international esteem in which Hyderabad is held is the fact that Microsoft chose it as the location of its only R & D campus outside America. According to a former Doing Business report published by the World Bank Group, Hyderabad is the second-best city in India in which to do business, a reputation which is bolstered by the presence of India's leading pharmaceutical and bio-tech industries.
