Is it possible to send everything? Frankly, no – you cannot. There are actually a couple of goods that are prohibited for (international) transport, due to safety, health risks or trade embargoes. Since every carrier has their own policies for processing dangerous substances and goods we provide you with a general breakdown. We highly dissuade sending these goods. If you, however, really really wish to send these, please take into account that you may have to deal with surcharges, delays or even confiscation by the concerning authorities. This list applies to all means and modes of transport.
Should you have doubts or questions regarding the (im)possibilities of shipping your consignment, please contact us! We kindly provide you with advise concerning any possible restrictions. It might save you a lot of frustration and unneeded financial trouble.
