1.       The High Commission of India in London is in the process of empanelling packers/ forwarding agents for undertaking packing and transportation/moving jobs in respect of our officers/diplomats. We have about 30-35 movements every year and these are related to transfer back to India and third countries stretching all over the world.

2.       In this connection, it may be noted that in the case of transfers to India, the role of a packing firm is limited to packing and transportation of the goods up to the warehouse of the agents of Shipping Corporation of India, (SCI) in London only. However, the firm/packer is required to raise the insurance in respect of the baggage of officials up to the residence in India and not only up to the warehouse of the agent of Shipping Corporation of India in London. However, in the case of transfers to other countries, role of a firm/packer would involve packing, handling, forwarding, transportation, custom clearance and other related work.

3.       If your firm is interested to be listed as one of the panel packers of the High Commission of India, London and is registered with British Association of Removers (BAR), is required to provide the following latest by 27/07/2016:

  1. Quotation in the attached proforma:

Final decision to empanel packers rests solely with the High Commission of India, London.
