    Default Which postal service enters through which Indian port

    THis should be informative while choosing shipping method.
    THe entry port depends on which postal service is used.

    So let me start off, from the info i have:

    HK post enters through both Mumbai & Delhi
    Singapore post enters through Chennai ( from my experience )
    Netherlands post enters Mumbai ( learning that the hard way )
    USPS enters Delhi
    Royal mail enters Delhi
    Sweden post through Delhi
    China post ( God forbid ) through Kolkata :
    Poland through Mumbai

    Request others also to add from their direct shipping tracking experience & i will modify the OP.

    To be foolproof, this is not about EMS/UPS/Fedex/DHL etc.

    Thanks Amit, yes, it will help us all to have a quick look, just in case we need to select from unfamiliar shipping options

    China post via kolkata is the worst way IMO, I had lost 2 parcels already. I will rather avoid purchase if this is only available shipping option.😡

    My last Royal Mail order came from Delhi, this time though its going to Mumbai, I hope that should be fine too. Generally shipping from Mumbai to Bangalore is faster than from Delhi.

    I ordered some stuff using SingPost as the shipping option.. The package arrived in India and then went to Mumbai (for customs clearance - per the tracking info). I was assuming customs would be taken care of in Chennai as delivery was to Hyderabad. Why would it go to Mumbai?

    Default Re: Which postal service enters through which Indian port

    My Singpost parcel entered a sum total of 6 times through mumbai - twice got stuck - once for about 7 grand worth of kangers and eliquid, and now with my flavours. Entry from Chennai is great - bangalore has a sub foreign post and they're quite decent. Only one parcel got revalued (approx 34% customs + other charges).

    I am from Kolkata so would China Post be a better choice? Or should I stick with HK.

    Would probably come thorough customs post if ordered through HK Airmail.

    But China Post takes anywhere from 15 days to 60 days .. Very inconsistent.
