This service is available on a national level, Mondays to Fridays, but it is dependent on flight availability. These times can only be determined on the day the consignment is lodged with the airline.

Generally, the consignment needs to be lodged with the relevant airline one hour before the departure and takes approximately one hour for the consignment to be cleared and released after arrival at the destination airport.
Internet Express is dependent on the following factors when lodging sameday shipments with the airline and cannot be controlled or monitored by Internet Express:

  • Flight availability
  • Weather conditions
  • Technical delays

What documentation is required when shipping overseas?

Customs and excise define documents as sheets of loose paper that are unbound. Books, magazines and brochures are regarded as non-documents and an invoice will need to accompany the package. Proforma invoices are used when the package has no commercial value and the receiver will not realise a profit from its contents. Internet Express will prompt you for the documentation required at the time of processing the collection request online.

Commercial invoices are necessary when the package being shipped is of commercial value and the person or company sending the package will realise a profit from the contents.
