Sending and packaging

To ensure your item reaches the addressee quickly and securely, address and pack it carefully and correctly.

Pack with care

Letters and parcels should be able to withstand mechanical handling. Broken items may cause damage to other mail items, mail handlers or sorting machines, in which case the sender may be held liable for the damage.
