A remote area is defined as a place that is not close to any larger city or any other point where local depots of courier companies are located. Courier companies consider these areas difficult to reach and therefore surcharges and additional costs may apply for a delivery in a remote area. Many locations can be considered a remote area:
Small or far away towns

Here is some advice for a cost-effective door-to-door delivery to a remote area:
The number of deliveries for the area might be too low and not frequent. For an optimal pick-up and delivery to a remote address always check when the courier company serves your area.
Sometimes, delays can’t be avoided by the courier company. Traffic or extreme weather conditions such as storms, heavy snowfall, or floods may cause a delay.
Shipping to remote locations usually takes longer than regular shipments. Keep this in mind and get an estimated delivery time when you plan your orders.
