Shipping perishable goods

Perishable products are products that lose their quality over time. At Packlink we consider two types of perishable goods:

  • Perishable goods with an expiry date of less than 10 days which are considered as Prohibited Items. They require specific temperature, humidity and storage conditions, and therefore they require special transport which is not permitted with Packlink. These can be eggs, meats, fish, fruits and vegetables.

                                     

 

What happens if I send a prohibited item?

*If you send this type of goods, your shipment may be automatically cancelled if it has not been collected. If it has been discovered that these goods have been shipped, the transportation company can withhold it and even destroy it, and all the resulting expenses will be charged to the service contractor. No claims will be accepted in case of delays, damage or loss of goods. You can view the complete list at: Prohibited items

  • Perishable goods with an expiry date of more than 10 days, which are considered as Uninsured Items, may be shipped at the user's own risk. They also require specific conditions, however, they are more durable. We are referring to the following: vacuum-packed sausages, canned foods, soups and pastas, among others.

*If you are going to send these types of goods, it is important that you take into account that it will be exempt from insurance coverage, therefore a claim will not be able to be made for damage or loss. You can view the complete list at: Items without insurance coverage
