Sending a parcel abroad can be a daunting task, especially if it’s your first time. From choosing the right courier service to navigating customs regulations, there are many factors to consider.

Here we’ll provide you with the ultimate guide to sending parcels abroad, with tips and tricks from our experts.
Choose the Right Courier Service
The first step in sending a parcel abroad is to choose the right courier service. Look for a company with a good reputation for international shipping and a track record of successful deliveries. At Global Corporate Logistics, we offer door-to-door shipping services to over 200 countries worldwide. Our experienced team will help you choose the best shipping method based on your needs and budget.
Pack Your Parcel Properly
Proper packing is essential for international shipping. Your parcel may be handled by multiple carriers and undergo different modes of transportation, so it’s important to ensure that it’s well protected. Use a sturdy box and plenty of bubble wrap or packing peanuts to cushion your items. Be sure to label your parcel clearly with the recipient’s name and address, as well as your own contact information.
Understand Customs Regulations
Customs regulations can vary widely from country to country, so it’s important to do your research before sending a parcel abroad. Certain items may be prohibited or restricted in some countries, such as food, plants, or electronics. Be sure to check the customs regulations of both the destination country and any transit countries along the way. At Global Corporate Logistics, we have extensive knowledge of customs regulations and can help you navigate the clearance process.
Track Your Parcel
Once your parcel is on its way, it’s important to track its progress. Most courier services offer online tracking tools that allow you to monitor your shipment in real-time. You’ll receive updates on its location and estimated delivery date, which can help you plan for its arrival. At Global Corporate Logistics, we provide our clients with tracking information for all shipments, so you can rest assured that your parcel is in good hands.
