Sending food abroad

Every country has different rules and restrictions when it comes to sending food. Understandably some countries are very worried about introducing alien plant species to their country. But as a general rule most non-perishable, store bought food is OK to ship.

What you can send:
Non-perishable foods
  • Store bought foods with a best before date over 6 months away.
  • Items must be in the original manufacturers packaging and unopened
  • Wrap each item separately
  • The food label needs to list all the ingredients.
  • The best before date must be displayed on the packaging.
What you cannot send:
Perishable foods
  • Foods with a shelf life of less than 6 months
  • Homemade foods or any foods not in the original manufacturers packaging.
  • Foods that can spoil during transit.
  • Food in packaging that have been opened.
  • Food that does not contain a food label listing the ingredients.

Prohibited items

When you send items abroad, they will likely travel by aeroplane. Unfortunately there are slightly tight restrictions on sending goods by courier. For example you cannot send perfume, even in limited quantities. ParcelHero has a prohibited list that's applicable to all couriers, and additionally, each courier has the their own restrictions.

Top 5 prohibited items
  • Perfume
  • Batteries
  • Aerosols
  • Flammable liquids
  • Animal skins (non‑domesticated)


No, you don’t need to provide a customs invoice or any additional documentation if you’re only sending an envelope or document. However, if your shipment contains any other items, such as a DVD, then a customs invoice is required.

The price we quote you for delivery includes all applicable surcharges and door to door delivery. The only costs not included are customs excise duty and tax. These charges are outside of our control as they are applied, at point of entry, by the government of the country you are sending to.

Yes. We can send pallets up to 1000kg in weight, but you will need to provide loading facilities at the collection and delivery locations. If you’re sending more than one pallet, it can often be more cost effective to send these via road or cargo instead of air. Contact our customer care team for a bespoke quote.

Freight Forwarders generally fly goods direct with airlines rather than using major couriers such as UPS and DHL. Freight Forwarder companies generally offer limited or no international parcel tracking and even the largest global logistics groups, who offer express freight solutions, struggle to match the transit times offered by UK international couriers such as UPS & DHL. Freight Forwarders’ express freight services are often not door to door and carry many more surcharges, whereas ParcelHero’s cheap international courier services offer all-inclusive prices at huge discounts.
