Once the country of destination is reached, the individual deliveries of this new service, are carried out with trackable postal services or through local couriers.
In the rest of the world, IFS works with postal courier systems who have tracking systems.

Operations

From the pickup to the compilation of customs documents.

  • Pickup: IFS can pick up anywhere in Italy with a 24-hour notice. Our customers can also deliver the goods directly c/o our International Service Center in Paderno Dugnano (MI)
  • Preparation: the packages must be addressed and identified with a serial number or bar code
  • Data transmission: File format .txt or .xls files to be sent to IFS Italy with ref. customer, recipient, address, and weight
  • Customs documents: CN22 (goods not for sale); CN23 + invoice (goods for sale)

In short, we offer a trackable inexpensive alternative to express courier channels.
