Restrictions

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

A shipment to Pakistan 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:

Until fairly recent technological innovations were introduced, somebody booking a package delivery to Gujranwala would receive no information between handing over their parcel and its final successful delivery. Whilst we can promise our customers that their Gujranwala parcel delivery will be in the best hands until it's delivered, we fully understand the anxiety caused by the uncertainty of silence, so we go to great lengths to ensure our customers can monitor and track the progress of their Gujranwala shipping as closely as they'd like. The aim of our service is to do the best for our customers without charging premium prices, and we utilise the best technology when handling your Gujranwala package delivery to ensure that's exactly what we achieve.

Gujranwala, in the north east of Pakistan, has extensive road and rail links spreading throughout the entire country, and these have helped to drive its position as a leading trade centre as well as a manufacturing and agricultural hub. It produces melons, grains and sugarcanes for export all over the world and is a major national centre for the production of goods such as cutlery, iron safes, metal tools, ceramics and steel. Since independence in 1947, the number of industrial units in the city has grown from just 40 to more than 6,000, making it the third largest industrial centre in the country, despite being only the seventh largest city. This activity covers a massive range of goods, from leatherwork to electrical engineering and just about everything in between. On a slightly more unconventional note, the city is also known as the 'City of Wrestlers' due to a reputation for producing some of the best wrestlers and bodybuilders on the subcontinent.

The information we provide you with when you book a package delivery to Gujranwala tells you exactly how to monitor your parcel throughout its journey. You'll know precisely who'll be dealing with your Gujranwala shipping and that, whoever it is, they'll be market-leading couriers upon whom you'll know you can rely. When your shipping to Gujranwala is making its way you can follow its progress on a single page of our website (even for multiple deliveries), monitoring it in and out of every depot it passes en route. We also ensure that all our customers are totally up to date with the latest information about anything that may have an effect upon a delivery anywhere in the world. And our excellent level of service doesn't stop there; booking a Gujranwala package delivery means you can access our regularly updated blog, featuring the latest news on the international shipping industry, as well as subjects such as weather, customs changes and developments in any political situation that may have an effect upon your parcel delivery to Gujranwala or, indeed, any delivery to Pakistan, whether it's a parcel delivery to Hyderabad or a package delivery to Multan. There's an old saying that claims knowledge is power, and we like to think that's the power that will send your Gujranwala shipping on a safe journey to its destination.
