As the second-most populous country in the world, with vast amounts of freight traffic in the form of vans, lorries and trains, it is only natural to think of India when imagining courier services sending packages and parcels abroad. Many tonnes of cargo will be brought in every day, and at The Delivery Group, we are proud to say that our work allows us the opportunity to quickly and seamlessly send air parcels to India as well.

We want you to be able to complete the day-to-day runnings of your business without any trouble whatsoever, so we do everything we can to keep our courier service to India as easy and straightforward as possible.

We can begin by answering a few common questions that will make sending any air parcel to India an easier process:
Because we offer the most competitive rates, you will always pay the best prices for the highest quality services here at The Delivery Group. However, we cannot provide full, actual quotes for costs on any one package or parcel until we know what it contains, how much it weighs, how large it is and its overall volume. After we have received this, we will be able to provide you with the quote you need before you send any items out.
Depending on factors such as size, weight and the delivery option you have chosen for your parcel delivery, the charge for sending air cargo to India may be anywhere between £10 and £300.
If you are planning on shipping any sort of parcel to India, you must be certain that you are following the rules and regulations, and not including prohibited items. The Central Board of Excise and Customs offers a full list of these, which include:
As of current legislation, you are able to send a gift of up to Rs 5,000, as long as this money is intended for personal use. This amount is considered exempt from customs duties.
Because India is outside of the EU, there will be customs duties and import tax charges to deal with when sending posted goods. Fortunately for our customers, we will take care of that step of the process on their behalf.
There are a number of differences in how packages and parcels are addressed in India, compared to the UK. We have listed these to make them more clear:
How addresses are formatted in India may depend on whether you are delivering a package to an urban or more rural area. For an urban area, the format will normally be as follows:
In the case of delivery to rural areas, the format will normally be:
A vibrant country with thousands of years of history, intertwining cultures and cities that are constantly growing to bring in new industries, India is just right for any business looking to send their products and items internationally. This is why our team is always ready to ship parcels and packages to the sub-continent, whether your shipment should arrive in New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai or Bengaluru.
We will also be ready and prepared to send parcels to smaller towns and settlements, as long as we are given a name and complete address for the intended destination.

When you sign up in partnership with The Delivery Group we will assign an expert account manager to you, who will then oversee all of your delivery operations. These trained members of our staff will not only be responsible for your billing, customs and documentation, they will also provide you with all the support you need throughout the shipping process. They can also answer any questions you may have, whether you need to know something about your items or about our shipping service to India as a whole.
To give an example, if you are sending a parcel to India from Leicester, but something has gone wrong and you need to redirect the item back to the UK, your account manager will be the person to call. They’ll be able to find a solution for practically any problem, and can even help you navigate deliveries through peak times, such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Imagine having the support of a courier firm that can help your parcel beat the odds and arrive on time even when there is a huge backlog throughout the rest of the postal system!
Tracking your parcel to its intended destination is a hugely important aspect of what makes any delivery firm a success. As such, we have created a free, downloadable app for our customers to use whenever they need to mail something out.
You will be guaranteed complete peace of mind throughout the delivery process, as we will provide you with a tracking number for your item that can then be entered into the app to check its status. Having this app available also means that we can easily amend any requirements for your delivery, should something change.
We’ll also be making full use of our very own in-house tracking network, so you know that all parcels and packages to India are monitored.
Having the fastest available delivery times can often mean the difference between customers going to you for their much-needed items or picking someone else to deliver the goods. This is where The Delivery Group can help more than ever, as we are proud to offer the quickest delivery times in the UK, with turnaround times of 72 hours or even less. We’ll also happily collect your parcel from any location you need, at any time, and can have your items delivered to their recipients at specific time slots if requested.
