A shipment to Vietnam 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 many things to consider when arranging a Vietnam package delivery and you can be sure that we've considered them all for you. After all, knowing the world of international shipping inside out is our business and it has been for over 25 years. We take pride in putting ourselves in the position of our customers, asking the questions they might ask and coming up with the answers required to provide the best service possible on every Vietnam parcel delivery.
Throughout the 20th century Vietnam was famous, or rather infamous, for being a place of conflict. When peace finally came to the country it suffered a period of economic stagnation; however, due to economic reforms in the late 1980s and an immense amount of effort and investment, the country has become one of the world's fastest growing economies. It has enjoyed a boom in information technology, manufacturing and other hi-tech industries, as well as entering the oil industry to the extent that it is now the third largest oil producer in South East Asia.
It's easy to see, then, that the demand for shipping to Vietnam is only going to grow in the coming years. Indeed, a forecast by PricewaterhouseCoopers has predicted that by the year 2050 Vietnam will have an economy which is 70% of the size of that in the UK. It may be that your Vietnam parcel delivery is part of this economic boom; the country has one of Asia's most open economies, trading with many of its near neighbours as well as the likes of the US, Australia and western Europe, and you might want to ship in goods, supplies or samples.
Whatever it is that you require shipping to Vietnam, one of your chief concerns will be that it reaches the end of its long journey in perfect condition. While our couriers are consummate professionals who’ll handle your package with care, it is still important that you pack your parcel correctly.
