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 Norway, 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 Norway 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 Norway, 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.

No matter why you need to make a parcel delivery to Bergen and no matter how often you have to arrange Bergen shipping, we provide the finest experience. Whether you want the best in the field of aftercare, booking, the shipping itself or being able to do it all for a price that can't be matched elsewhere, RapidParcel.com is the place to come. We meet the same high standards all over Norway, so these pledges apply to a parcel delivery to Oslo as well as a Bergen package delivery, but for the time being we'll look at what would happen if you'd journeyed from the UK to Bergen on business matters and then found you'd left something vital behind. It's at a time like this that our approach to Bergen shipping comes into its own.

The city of Bergen is the second largest in the whole of Norway and in 2004 it was named by Time magazine as one of what they termed Europe's 'Secret Capitals', due mainly to the major international role it plays in the fields of shipping, maritime businesses and marine research. Indeed, the Institute of Marine Research is the second largest of its kind in Europe. The port in Bergen is the largest in Norway and one of the largest in Europe, and the city is also host to the Royal Norwegian Navy. Tourism brings a lot of money to Bergen, particularly in the form of cruise ships taking advantage of its status as 'The Gateway to the Fjords' and its position as the unofficial capital of western Norway.

Whatever part of the Bergen economy it is that your business works in, you'll occasionally need to travel there to meet people in person and present paperwork, product samples or ideas. Even with all the planning in the world, though, there may be a time when you reach your destination only to discover that you've forgotten to bring something vital - a contract sitting in a desk drawer or a sample left behind at the factory. This is when RapidParcel.com can handle your problems by organising shipping to Bergen smoothly and quickly. In years gone by, being abroad and needing to arrange a package delivery to Bergen would have seemed like a nightmare scenario. Using RapidParcel.com, though, all that's really needed is one quick phone call to head office, telling someone that you have to organise a Bergen parcel delivery, or if you have access to a computer you can arrange it yourself. The rest simply couldn't be easier - from logging on to our easy-to-use website, through picking a courier to deal with the shipping to Bergen from amongst our choice of the best couriers in the world, to arranging for delivery by the next day - it really is simplicity itself. You can carry on with your business activities, certain that your vital parcel delivery to Bergen is making its way to you and in the safest possible hands.
