How should I act as the shipper of a parcel?

Please check, especially in the case of commercial delivery addresses, whether parcel delivery to the addressee is actually possible. In Germany and numerous EU countries, many shops have to be closed on official orders.

Exceptions to this rule are, among others, food retailers, drugstores, banks, wholesalers, beverage markets, pharmacies, medical supply stores, dry cleaners, building, gardening and pet supplies stores. The regulations may vary in the individual federal states.

You will find more detailed information on the regulations in other European countries below.
