Shipping Restrictions for DHL and FedEx

Along with our general Prohibited Items List couriers such as DHL and FedEx have some additional restrictions that must be adhered to in order to use their service. The following items cannot ship via courier services at Blackship.

Please note that due to COVID-19, FedEx and DHL are among the only shipping options to many countries. If FedEx or DHL do not allow it, you will have to send it via Seamail if that option is available. For countries where only FedEx and DHL are available, we were unable to send any restricted items.
