  28. I want to send 20 kg parcel of dress and spices from India Chennai to YEREVAN, ARMENIA. How much the rate and delivery time it would take?

  29. What is the difference between Surface Air lift (SAF) and Airlifted parcels ?
    How long does it take for a 2 kg parcel to be delivered at Portland USA for both the modes ?

    • Approximately Rs.1400 for Air lifted and Rs.1172 for Surface air lifted. It shouldn’t take more than 2 weeks if customs doesn’t hold them up.
      SAF uses surface transport where ever possible. For example, your parcels would go to a major airport in USA by air and from there it goes to destination on road. In the other case, the parcels would again be transferred to nearest airport to the destination by air itself.

      There’s nothing like maximum weight; the rates are Rs.704 for first 250 grams and Rs.58 for every additional 250 grams.

    The Flat rate do not indicate whether it is for the total weight of the packed box or the weight of contents only excluding the box because the box itself weighs between 250gms for 1 Kg box to 1kg for the 5kg box
