Labelling a Parcelforce Parcel

We understand that labelling your Parcel(s) can be a daunting process.

The service you have selected, and the destination of your parcel will determine what labels and documents you require.

  • In order for Parcelforce to scan your goods easily, please ensure that the bar code label is not creased or covered in any way by packing tape.
  • Please sign the CN23 and Commercial Invoices, in the spaces indicated, and attach these to the outside of your box.

Documents indicated with a * must be attached to your parcel(s)
