Worldwide Courier Services & International Customs
Fastlane International parcel delivery puts 220 countries in easy reach, with the majority of EU destinations available as a next-day courier service. As well as prices up to 70% less than the Post Office, Fastlane’s smart technology instantly compares the services of the world’s best carriers to locate the carrier best suited to your delivery criteria. Shipments outside the EU will require customs documents, which Fastlane creates as part of the booking process.
If you are sending a parcel abroad for the first time, you will need customs documents. A customs invoice informs the relevant country customs authorities the items you are shipping, their value and the reason for shipping. Based on this, customs authorities evaluate what import duties and tax should be applied. In some cases, for example a document delivery, exemption applies while many countries don’t apply duty to gifts or personal effects. Each country varies so please check their rules and regulations before booking.
Please be aware that while Fastlane always issues a complete quote at time of booking, with no hidden surcharges, international duty and tax is only decided at point of entry to the destination country. Fastlane International, just like all other international couriers, has no control over this so it cannot be included in your quote. For the wide majority of shipments, resolution of any tax and duty is the responsibility of the recipient and failure to resolve this can cause transit delays.
Track Your Fastlane Courier Service Deliveries
Fastlane International’s parcel tracking technology gives our clients instant access to Real-time scan updates on the progress of their parcel deliveries, whether that’s an express delivery to the USA, Economy to Australia or a domestic or European Union delivery. Real-Time scans are updated at every stage and if there is any issue with your shipment, customers are swiftly notified.
International deliveries undergo a greater number of transit stages than a UK delivery, and have to pass customs if travelling outside the European Union. Parcel progress is monitored and at each checking stage, a new scan update is issued. All you need is the unique tracking number (also known as an airway bill) and the Fastlane system will instantly provide the latest status for your parcel. On-the-go you can also track your parcel with the Fastlane iShipper app.

International Baggage & Luggage Courier Services
Technically speaking, a suitcase or holiday baggage is no different to a parcel or package shipment, it’s just it travels with you on your airline flight. While airline charges have decreased year on year, airline baggage charges can be a significant additional cost to a business trip or family holiday. Sending your luggage with Fastlane International’s specialist luggage delivery service can be far more economical than checking it in at the airport.
Fastlane will deliver your luggage direct to your hotel, holiday accommodation, golf resort or conference venue with significant savings on airline excess baggage charges, particularly if you are travelling long-haul. And you have removed half the pain-points of international flying – baggage check in and baggage carousel reclaim on arrival. Shipping luggage by courier is not only cheaper, it is more secure with full parcel tracking to monitor your suitcases’ movements as it is transported by one of our professional courier partners. Fastlane International can ensure your cases, sports equipment or business equipment is securely waiting for you when you arrive at your international destination.
