How to pack maple or elderberry syrup jars and bottles for transportation?

Syrups are usually packaged in plastic or glass bottles. Follow these simple packing tips to prepare maple or elderberry syrup properly for shipping:

  • Put wrapped bottles into a smaller box.

  • Prepare the pallet (for large maple or elderberry syrup shipments).
  • Stack the boxes one onto another.
  • Fix them with a packaging rope and wrap them in plastic foil to make sure they cannot move on the pallet.

Shipping maple or elderberry syrup: rules and regulations to respect

Even though every courier has specific restrictions and packaging requirements related to sending food and liquids, many people send maple syrup abroad on a regular basis.

Private individuals
Private individuals can mail maple syrup to each other both within and outside the EU, provided they pack it well for shipping. Courier companies will not be held liable for damages that may occur to this type of products during transit. If you decide to organize maple or elderberry syrup delivery by post, it is not recommended to send more than 1L abroad in the mail.
Certified companies
Certified companies working in the food industry can send big amounts of maple syrup abroad through courier services. To do so, they must comply with safety, packaging, labelling and import regulations of the destination country and provide all the necessary documents. It is also crucial to secure the product in adequate leak-proof containers. All the companies exporting syrups must comply with the hygiene and quality standards established by the destination country.

FAQs on international maple and elderberry syrup delivery and transportation

Can I ship maple or other syrup with every courier company?

It is important to note that not all courier companies will ship syrups internationally. For example, DHL, TNT and UPS will not ship packages that contain maple syrup within the content. Each courier has specific rules and requirements for different shipments and services, so we recommend checking this further with the designated courier for your route. When booking Express or Regular plus shipping services, please make sure not to include these items as the courier will refuse to collect the parcel. If you need further assistance, you can reach us by chat, phone or email before shipping to discuss your options further.

Can I send maple syrup from Canada to the US?

Under the US customs laws, packaged syrups are generally admissible without restrictions. Thus, if you have bought maple syrup in Canada and intend to send it abroad, you can do it by post or through courier services.

What is the cheapest way to send syrups internationally?

With the Eurosender low-cost logistics platform, you no longer need to waste precious time comparing the rates of multiple parcels and freight delivery providers. To find the most budget-friendly maple or elderberry syrup delivery option, simply insert your shipment details in our booking tool. Our smart algorithm will automatically choose the service matching all your shipping needs at the lowest price within a few seconds.

What should one keep in mind before shipping maple syrup from Canada to Europe? Do you have to declare maple syrup?

If you plan to send maple syrup abroad as a gift, keep in mind that if the value of the goods in your parcel exceeds 45 EUR (68 CAD), the shipment will undergo a customs clearance procedure.

It is also worth mentioning that sending homemade syrups internationally is not recommended by couriers and postal operators due to the risk of improper packaging. Such shipments can potentially damage other parcels.

Can I carry on maple syrup?

As it is the case with all other liquids, it is highly recommended to transport maple syrup in checked luggage. Restrictions regarding the carry-on luggage may vary from one airline company to another.

Is there any insurance for maple and elderberry syrup delivery?

In most cases, no, because it is a liquid and a fragile item (if maple syrup has been sent abroad or across the country in glass bottles), even though it depends on the courier’s Terms and Conditions, as well as on the quality of packaging.

Take into consideration these guidelines when organizing maple or elderberry syrup delivery by post or by courier. Nevertheless, please consider that following them does not guarantee that the courier company will ship your package without restriction. In case you decide to send maple syrup abroad through our platform, Eurosender will not be held responsible for any damages caused by the transportation of your shipment.
