After you have paid for a shipping service to India, 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 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.
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:
When you book a shipping service to India, 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.

Much of what RapidParcel.com offers as a courier comparison website is based on our size. The fact that we are a large company with decades of experience means we can attract the very best couriers and persuade them to offer the kind of rates for Pune parcel delivery that you won't find anywhere else. When you're making a parcel delivery to Pune, you'll be able to take advantage of the fact that your Pune shipping is in the best hands possible. Despite our size, and the global nature of the work we do, we never forget the individual customer, the person who may be sending a Pune parcel delivery for the very first time, and we shape our service in such a way as to make sure that each customer and their individual Pune shipping are handled as carefully and smoothly as the most lucrative corporate contract.
Pune is an Indian city which is at once both ancient and modern. Situated at the meeting point of the Mula and Mutha rivers, it was first established in the year AD 937, but it entered the twenty-first century ideally equipped to move forward and meet new challenges. Manufacturing industries encompassing glass, steel and sugar have been firmly established since the 1950s, and in recent years they have been joined by information technology and automotive manufacturers. Aside from the lure of business, many visitors are drawn to Pune by its reputation as "the Oxford of the East". It boasts no fewer than nine universities and has more educational establishments than any other city in the world. This, alongside a reputation for a broad range of cultural activity, attracts migrants from all over both India and the wider world.
It's easy to envisage, then, the circumstances in which a member of your family has travelled to Pune, perhaps to work, study, or just soak up the culture and atmosphere. If you want to let a loved one know that they're firmly in your thoughts then nothing does it better than sending a package delivery to Pune. A letter, text or tweet is all very well, but nothing quite gets the message across like a carefully chosen package delivery to Pune handed over personally. No matter what it is that you want shipping to Pune, RapidParcel.com are the best people to handle it.

No matter where in India your loved one is, we'll get your gift to them quickly, cheaply and safely. It could be a parcel delivery to Ahmadabad or a package delivery to Hyderabad rather than a Pune package delivery - to us every parcel is as precious as it is to you and we'll handle it with this in mind. All you need to do is log on our website, select the deal that suits you best and then relax, knowing that your loved one is about to have their day made.
