SriLankan Cargo has recently expanded their range of facilities with another value added service - Door delivery service of unaccompanied baggage from the Colombo City Cargo Office to any destination in the UK effective from 1st December 2011.
This SriLankan Door Delivery Cargo Service will be providing its customers a speedy delivery of their personal baggage, gifts and sample shipments right up to their doorstep in the UK.
Delivery to any address in the United Kingdom will be within two working days, depending on the area.
According to SriLankan Airline’s Senior Manager Cargo (Worldwide Sales & Marketing), Ali Kamil, Airport to door delivery of SriLankan's clients’ cargo will be one of its key competitive advantages in the near future.
Among the exclusive services that SriLankan Cargo is hoping to deliver are Customs clearance, clearing and documentation formalities at destination airports and delivery to customer’s door. Any charges on dutiable items will have to be borne by the consignee on delivery to the door.
This new Door Delivery Cargo service is operated in collaboration with Air & Cargo Services Limited in the United Kingdom.
It is expected to extend this service to our other online destinations in the near future.
