India has been an extremely important trade partner for the United Kingdom for centuries. The Asian nation has the seventh-largest area of any country in the world and its 1.2 billion population creates the second-largest citizen-base in the world. This population are now getting more active online, often purchasing items from the UK and we’ve seen rapid growth in volumes of parcels travelling to India and other parts of Asia.
Improvements to the transport infrastructure in India have meant shipping times have reduced, so you can now send a parcel to India from the UK in just 2-3 working days* if you book an expedited service.
All of the services mentioned below include parcel tracking.

Importing to India requires adherence to the country's rules and regulations and importation rules are administered by the Central Board of Excise and Customs. While their website is full of information, be prepared to dig a bit to determine exactly what items can and cannot be moved. As a member of the World Customs Organisation, the importation process is fairly quick and straightforward.
India prohibits specific items and products from entering the country. This list includes:
Some items do not require any additional import tax. For defective items that are shipped to India for repair, there is no import duty required.
India also gives a pass to shipments that are for theatrical productions, filmmaking and mountaineering expeditions. Some engineering prototypes and commercial samples can also be sent without paying duty tax. Gifts remain exempt only if it is a personal shipment sent by regular post and the value does not go over INR 10,000.
Firstly the PDF would not print the correct size so its barcode couldnt be read by the scanner (far too big). Due to the size, some information was cut off the lable so I had to make a screen-grab print while the courier waited (He was very accommodating). Secondly the shiping company in the UK contacted the recipient in India by phone to ask for a copy of his email addess, but they emailed ME for a picture of the recipient and a copy of his ID. I might use this service again, although in fairness ParcelMonkey are simple a portal and I chose the shipper based on price. At least I am forearmed to spend more time up front!
Simple instructions and on time delivery at a reasonable price. Happy with the quality of tracking.
The comparison site worked well and got the labels printed and package dropped off. However, DPD took 7 days to deliver the parcel to the destination contrary to what they advertised!
This is the second time I have used parcel monkey. My parcel got to the destination. Very easy process and cheaper than any other courier company.
Easy to book and clear communication
