Mandatory Shipping Documents

Please attach appropriate documentation with your consignment. Shipkar does not hold any responsibility in case of a mishap regarding lack of documentation. We recommend that you check the appropriate requirements from official government websites for a smoother movement of consignments.

The e-way bill is an important document required for the movement of goods.

It is mandatory if you are moving goods worth more than INR 50,000 from one place to another. Each e-way bill must have detailed information about the goods being transported.

Additionally, you need an E-way bill to transport goods worth less than INR 50,000 if they are handicraft goods or goods for inter-state job work.
