Shipping to India

One of the largest and most densely populated countries in the world, India stretches from the Himalayas to the golden beaches of Goa, the tropical landscapes of Kerala and the bustling Bay of Bengal.

Famous for its passionate love of cricket, rich history and spirituality, and fascinating architecture, India is a country of vibrancy and colour. In recent years, the subcontinent has become synonymous with technological innovation and commerce, with a booming import industry and rising demand for industrial and consumer goods.

Impact Express is helping to play a part in this economic renaissance by offering reliable shipping services to India.

Shipping to India: our services

Our courier services to India are all fully tracked. We provide the choice of two-day express delivery or an economy service for larger or less urgent shipping.

We’ve made our shipping service convenient and easy to use. Depending on whether you have a ‘business’ or ‘personal’ account, we can either collect your parcel from you, or arrange for you to drop it at a designated spot.

You’ll also enjoy use of your own personalised tracking portal. This will provide notifications of your parcel’s progress, whether you’re shipping to the famous pink city of Jaipur or one of India’s many beautiful palaces and temples.

Parcel packaging for shipping to India

We pride ourselves on taking great care of your parcel or package, but it is important that you ensure your item is securely packaged to prevent damage or loss.

Consider using bubble wrap or other materials to protect the item. Then ensure that it is securely contained in outer packaging, sealed with strong tape.

We will provide an address label, which you should complete clearly and attach to the outside. We always recommend including a return address.
