A shipment to Turkey 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

There are lots of factors to consider when selecting a firm to deal with your package delivery to Mersin. The level of service applied to your Mersin shipping is top of the list, of course, and that's why we only work in partnership with couriers who've reached our demanding standards on the many occasions that we've worked with them. Other things you'll no doubt be on the lookout for when organising your Mersin package delivery will be the simplicity of the booking system, whether it's easy to follow or not, and how much of your valuable time is going to be taken up. RapidParcel.com ticks all the boxes but we realise that, very often, whether you're an individual working to a tight personal budget or a business looking to keep down overheads, the cost of your Mersin parcel delivery will be at the very top of your priorities, and we make sure that you won't be disappointed where cost is concerned either.
Mersin is a bustling port city lying on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Its importance to the economy of Turkey lies mainly in the fact that the port is the largest in the country, boasting 45 piers and being capable of handling 6,000 ships per year. The Mersin Free Zone, which lies next to the port, is home to many different businesses, such as engineering workshops, warehouses, exhibition centres and labelling facilities. The zone is also a centre for foreign investment, with strong links to markets in North Africa, East and West Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and the Russian Federation. The size of its port means that Mersin is a hub for vessels travelling to and from many European countries.
It doesn't matter if your package delivery to Mersin is commercial in nature, wishing to cash in on the city's booming economy, or something more personal such as a gift for a distant friend or a means of making sure that someone who's far away from home knows that they're in your thoughts, you'll be eager to secure the best possible price for your Mersin shipping. In years gone by, this would have involved finding the couriers you knew could be trusted with your parcel delivery to Mersin and then haggling over the price, having to go from courier to courier securing quotes until eventually getting a price to suit your pocket. At RapidParcel.com, we think that's our job, so we drew up a list of the very best couriers around and then used our scale and long-term business dealings with them to negotiate market-leading prices for your Mersin parcel delivery. They offer us the kind of deals they don't offer anywhere else because they trust us as much as we trust them. Even customers who go straight to the couriers aren't going to be offered the prices for shipping to Mersin that we've negotiated, and we make sure that our customers gain the maximum benefit possible from this, with the same applying to a parcel delivery to Adana, a package delivery to Bursa or shipping to anywhere else in Turkey.
