"In my role as an International Consultant for Parcelforce, I find the Guide gives me the most up-to-date information on all aspects of shipping goods to wherever in the world. It is very clear on the prohibitions and restrictions and whether or not certain licenses are required and where our customers can go to obtain them. It is all very concise and most importantly easy to understand and I never leave home without it."
