Shipping to Remote Areas & How

Courier Services Work

Know About Remote Area And Related Details.
Shipping to remote areas is more complex than standard shipping, both for economical and logistics reasons. Generally, booking shipping services to remote areas is possible. As long as you receive mail to your address, carriers are most probably able to deliver a shipment there. Usually, deliveries to remote properties come with a higher price or additional fees.
If you live in a remote area or want to ship a package to a remote area , there are few things to take into account. Here is all you need to know.

What is a remote location?

A remote area is defined as a place that is not close to any larger city or any other point, where local depots of courier companies are located. This makes the area difficult to reach. 

These locations are usually 
islands, ski resorts, suburbs, small towns, places that are neither highly populated nor easy to access and far from a shipper’s hub. These locations are generally considered remote areas by most courier companies. 

Courier companies have depots in different locations which vary from one another. Therefore, if their closest depot to the pick-up or delivery address is far away, that address can fall under the same category as the remote area.

What to expect when you ship to/ from a
remote location

Deliveries to such areas usually imply a remote area surcharge

What fees can apply? 
The additional fees that might apply are usually called remote area surcharges. Most courier companies apply it when the delivery address is not easy to access due to the distance from the courier’s hub. 
Does India Speed Courier apply additional fees?

The delivery time is not guaranteed and
deliveries to remote areas are not done

There are areas which are served once or twice per week. You will want to check these details with the courier company before.

The shipping service to remote areas rarely has a well-defined delivery time. Deliveries to such location will take longer. The average transit time displayed on the carriers’ website won’t always apply. At India Speed Courier, we have taken into account all these details when estimating the average transit time.


You also have to consider that it might take longer for the information in the tracking system to be updated. Updates in the tracking system appear when the parcel is scanned in a new depot. Given the fact that it takes longer for a package collected from a remote area to reach the first depot, updates will also take longer to appear in the system.

How to check if the address falls into the
category of remote areas?

Big courier companies make some tools available for the customers to check if their location is considered remote. You will either find a document on their website with an exhaustive list of remote areas or a tool where the customers have to insert the postal code to get this information.


Get in touch with us and we will check with the courier companies is a particular zone is considered remote.
