Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Pakistan, 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 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:

Booking a package delivery to Rawalpindi is very much about trust - you're giving over something of value, whether it's a business or personal item, and trusting that it will be looked after safely until it's successfully delivered. At RapidParcel.com we understand this and realise that the key to building and sustaining this kind of trust is information. If you organise a Rawalpindi parcel delivery through us we'll make sure you're fully informed every step of its journey, from the day you access our website to the moment your Rawalpindi shipping is safely delivered.

Rawalpindi, the third largest city in Pakistan, was once a relatively small city and in 1947 had a population of only 180,000 people. This changed in the decade between 1959 and 1969, during which time the city served as Pakistan's capital whilst the new capital, Islamabad, was being built. That role, and the fact that it houses the military headquarters of the Pakistani National Army, has led to Rawalpindi staking a claim as being one of the most important cities in the country. Many tourists visit Rawalpindi because of its strategic geographical position, allowing easy access to the northern parts of Pakistan, and visitors from Pakistan itself are drawn by the cosmopolitan makeup of the population and the numerous shopping bazaars and parks.

There'll be times when your need for a package delivery to Rawalpindi concerns business matters, maybe you're aiming to take advantage of the many business and commercial opportunities afforded by a bustling modern city like Rawalpindi; or perhaps it's a private gift that you need shipping to Rawalpindi, marking a birthday or family anniversary. Whatever the details, we realise that the key to organising a successful parcel delivery to Rawalpindi lies in keeping the customer as fully informed as they possibly can be at all stages of the process.

It's perfectly possible that this is the first time you've had to arrange shipping to Rawalpindi, and so our website is laid out simply and clearly, meaning that first-time users can make informed choices with ease, whilst returning commercial customers can cut down on the time and work involved in making a Rawalpindi package delivery. We don't take it for granted that you know all there is to know about international shipping, that's why we make every effort to keep things simple. When you arrange a package delivery to Rawalpindi, a parcel delivery to Faisalabad, a package delivery to Lahore or, indeed, shipping to anywhere outside the EU, you can visit our website to find out all we know about customs guidance that may have an effect on your shipping to Rawalpindi. The final responsibility for meeting these rules and regulations is the customer's but our insistence on detailing what we know, both in the paperwork you'll receive after booking and on our website, will make meeting your obligations that much easier. At RapidParcel.com we know that information is the key to success, and we want your parcel delivery to Rawalpindi to be a complete success.
