The spread of shipments in Europe
There are several reasons behind shipping goods and products to Europe. But not a few individuals and companies turn to a courier service to send documents either. Although we are in the midst of the digital age, paper documents are still indispensable on many occasions. Today, the market offers users a wide range of choices, proposing, in addition to traditional postal services, those offered by specialized companies. The most important thing is to find the solution that minimizes the risks of blocked, lost or damaged parcels and packages. Couriers, in various cases, allow for the provision of insurance coverage: an indispensable factor, especially when the goods being sent are of high value. Europacco, specifically, allows you to insure a package to be sent in Europe simply by entering the purchase value of the goods in the space provided in the online form. The costs associated with the requested service are indicated immediately and can be viewed directly on the site.
Documents needed to send packages and documents in Europe
When dealing with shipments to Europe, the regulatory and bureaucratic aspect regarding the movement of goods is fundamental. The cost is a pivotal factor, but extreme importance must also be given to the procedure necessary to guarantee a fast and safe delivery of any parcel. When the shipment foresees a destination situated in the national territory or in countries belonging to the European Union, users are only required to fill in the waybill. This is a significant advantage compared to shipments to non-EU countries (such as Switzerland). In this case, in fact, it will be necessary to take into account the presence of customs and, consequently, restrictions and duties.
Tracking shipments in Europe
Various shippers and companies specializing in the shipment of parcels and pallets, first and foremost europacco, allow you to verify in which part of Europe your package is located at any given time. This can be done by relying on special tracking tools. Europacco includes this service in the price of the shipment. By updating the data several times a day, the shipper can constantly get information on the status of the shipment. In fact, some couriers update the transit of the shipment every 24 hours. And if the shipping partner changes during the journey, the parcels will continue to be traceable. In practice, the information obtained by using tracking tools is comparable to that offered by a GPS.
What is possible to ship within Europe
Another element not to be underestimated, before proceeding with the shipment, is the type of goods, or items to be included in the package. The contents, in fact, must not be part of the lists of prohibited items. Although they differ from country to country, these lists generally prohibit the introduction of dangerous objects (i.e. potentially able to cause damage to people, environment or other objects). Careful information should be obtained to ensure that the package is not blocked before reaching the recipient. Couriers are also very careful in this regard, providing up-to-date lists themselves. While some of the items may seem obvious (toxic, flammable or weapons products), others are much less so (including valuables, valuables, animals, perishable foods and chemicals).
Besides prohibited items and goods, there are other products which, although not prohibited, are subject to certain restrictions. The one who wants to ship wine in the European territory or olive oil will be able to do it, but only by adopting proper packaging and by respecting the existing rules. If clothes, books and documents are not normally subject to particular restrictions, there are some cases in which it is required to send them by using solid cardboard boxes, on which will be applied protections against bumps and pressures. To European countries it is also possible to ship spare parts for cars and motorcycles, musical instruments, PCs, smartphones, other electronic items and sports equipment.
Food shipments to Europe
Non-perishable foodstuffs and those with a long shelf life, if stored in glass jars, should be placed inside protective polystyrene cellars. In this way, the integrity of the goods can be ascertained during transit. Perishable goods, on the other hand, can only be shipped by specialized couriers offering a temperature controlled shipping service. In any case, it will be necessary to make a further assessment before proceeding with the shipment, that is, not to ship prohibited goods.
The choice of packaging for long distance shipments
In order to be sure that the package shipped actually reaches its destination in perfect condition, the choice of packaging should be targeted, therefore linked to the type of products shipped. The objective will be to avoid that blows, excessive pressure or vibrations during the journey (or at the time of sorting in warehouses), end up damaging the contents. We speak, specifically, of external and internal packaging. As for the outer packaging, a used box or an old container may not be sufficient to ensure adequate protection. In order for the content to travel without risk, the best solution is a new or intact package in 3/6-wave cardboard. In case of high weight of the goods it is better to adopt solutions characterized by at least triple corrugated cardboard. As for the size, these should be proportional to the content. Avoid leaving too many empty spaces and, at the same time, do not use boxes that barely contain the objects to be shipped (thus not allowing the insertion of padding). Any gaps left between the contents and the box can be filled with bubble wrap, crumpled paper, or moldable foam. Certain products, in particular fragile objects, liquids (wines and spirits, but also detergents), precious goods and various food items, require very careful packing.
Sending luggage to a European country
Those who need to travel to Europe for business or study reasons or are moving for a vacation, may find it unpleasant to have to transport luggage between stations and airports or to load and unload it from cabs or buses. In addition to the hassle and the actual weight of the suitcases, the risk is to lose them or to be victims of theft. And if you decide to travel by plane, you are often faced with rather high accessory costs imposed by the airlines. It is not surprising, therefore, that many people now prefer to send their suitcases to their destination using courier services. Europacco allows you to ship your luggage safely in Europe, quickly and without any surprise on the rates applied, entrusting the shipment to internationally renowned couriers.
