How do I Send Parcels Internationally?

Sending parcels internationally might seem complex, but with the right guidance, it's as easy as sending a letter to your neighbour. If you've ever wondered about the steps involved, you're in the right place. At Apex Cargo, we’ve been aiding businesses and individuals in sending their packages worldwide. Here's a concise guide for you.

  2. Package Your Goods Properly:

    • Ensure that the contents of your parcel are packaged securely. Use bubble wrap for fragile items and fill voids with packing peanuts or crumpled newspaper.

    • Incorrect labelling can lead to delays. Include clear sender and recipient details and any other information required by your destination country.
  4. Know the Customs Regulations:

    • Different countries have varying customs rules. Research or seek guidance on the import/export regulations for your parcel's destination. Apex Cargo's experienced team can help navigate these requirements.
  5. Get a Quote:

    • Know the costs upfront. At Apex Cargo, we provide transparent quotes ensuring there are no hidden fees.
  6. Track Your Parcel:

    • With modern technology, tracking your international parcel is simple. Apex Cargo provides real-time tracking, so you always know where your package is.
  7. Ensure Insurance:

    • It's always wise to insure your package, especially for valuable items. This provides peace of mind and financial security.
