Although we do have a list of prohibited items that you can't generally can't send via couriers, each nation would have their restrictions that you would need to be aware of. For instance, India doesn't allow baby gender prediction kits and South Africa restricts the importation of skin care items, and USA has strict rules as directed by the FDA.
It is also crucial that when you book your international parcel delivery that you describe the contents of the package as precisely as possible. The courier will then have another opportunity to ensure that nothing illegal is being carried or if you are trying to ship something that may incur duty when entering the destination country. This process isn't full proof but is another layer of control to help have a trouble-free delivery.
Just because you may have written "fragile" on your parcel, it doesn't mean that you can't take care in packaging it. Spending another five minutes using bubble wrap, newspaper and ensuring that a sturdy cardboard box is used can save an hour or so of the recipient taking photos of the damage and you chasing up a claim.
Often we re-use cardboard boxes from previous deliveries and it may not obvious that old address details and barcodes may still be on the underside of the box. Just to prevent routing issues within the automated services, it would be wise to remove all address information and barcodes from the box.
