Personal Effects Shipping Documents
The Shipping Declaration Form is required when handing over your goods for shipping. It’s important that all information is accurately documented, and the sender and receiver’s names and addresses are clearly stated and labelled on the packages, as well as the boxes/crates are secured, nailed and/or taped down for secure shipping to your destination of choice.
The Door Delivery Service Agreement is required to make sure your personal effects reach their destination in Sri Lanka safely, and require the shipper to specify all the information Transco International may need to deliver it to the consignee.
The Packing List is essential for customs clearance in India, therefore take good care to mention all your items as well as shipper and consignee information too.
