Customs

Before sending your parcel to Poland, please make sure that none of the items in your parcels contravene the restrictions imposed by customs at destination.

Customs website: http://www.archbip.mf.gov.pl/

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Poland, 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 Poland 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 Poland, 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.

At RapidParcel.com we're just as happy catering for large scale corporate customers as we are individuals making a single Katowice parcel delivery. In both cases we seek to tailor our service to meet the requirements of the customer. When an individual organising a parcel delivery to Katowice for the first time is involved, we feel it's vital to make the process as simple to understand and easy to use as possible. This, combined with our policy of working with the very best and most trusted courier companies, means that anyone can organise a Katowice package delivery quickly, without stress and with complete peace of mind. For corporate customers, we offer a range of services to meet a business's needs in today's fast moving world.

Katowice is a centre for science, business, industry, culture and transportation in southern Poland. Located on both the Klodnica and Rawa rivers, it is a national coal and steel centre, boasting several coal mines, two steelworks and a foundry. Internationally, the city is renowned as a major centre for business and trade fairs, with many being held every year in what is Poland's second largest business venue. The city is the centre of a special economic zone, and this has helped lead to it having an unemployment rate which is one of the lowest in Poland, and an average monthly wage which is up amongst the highest.

There are numerous reasons, then, why a business might need to make a Katowice package delivery, or do so on a repeat and bulk basis. It may be that you liaise with Polish partners who need to take a look at hard copies of invoices, or your Katowice shipping may consist of product samples aimed at tempting a new lead into giving you access to that all-important European market. Whatever it is that needs shipping to Katowice, you'll want to be certain that you're dealing with a company that comprehends the corporate world.
