Shipment mode
The preferred method of shipment will be door-to-door shipment. However, airport consignment to your nearest airport may have to be considered in certain circumstances. All participants will receive a confirmatory email notifying them that their order has been dispatched, with a link to follow the progress of their order.

Group shipments
Group shipments may be organised to a central distribution point within a country in order to reduce shipment costs. However, distribution from this central location is left at the discretion of the receiver. If you wish to receive group shipments, please complete the relevant registration form.
