Be aware of the time period you expect your goods to make the journey. Domestic express delivery and international delivery are subject to frequent delays during holidays or in times of calamities. Start your delivery process only if it is convenient to do so.
Understand the packaging needed to initiate the process. International shipping specifies the exact size of the package they expect depending on what your goods are, ignoring which may result in faulty delivery or complete rejection. If your package has multiple items, do separate them from one another.
Hazardous goods need extra precaution while shipping. Pack carefully and keep international logistics services and fulfillment warehouse informed about all necessary details relating to your package.
Never hide the package details from the logistics distribution. They might know important aspects related to your goods which will be undisclosed if the details of the same aren’t highlighted.
Do not disregard rules and regulations stipulated by the international logistics services and the countries that you are shipping to. If realized later, you could sometimes face some consequences.
Be sure to specify the exact address of the recipient and yourself if you do not want to lose your parcel. And your logistics distribution contact, needs to be made aware. So your addresses on the package and the document should match.
Although these aren’t the only points to mind, it gives you a fair idea about the intricacies involved in international delivery. Ignorance is not always bliss, mind you!
