As India continues to report over a hundred thousand cases daily, the demand for life-saving portable oxygen concentrators in India continues to surge.
While many people from different countries rally to crowdfund and ship oxygen concentrators to India, many barriers to shipping still exist. Firstly, import charges into India are very high. Secondly, India customs requires more personal documentation on the receiver’s end in order to complete the entire shipping process. If the information is not provided as requested, packages may be returned or disposed of at the customs.
Amidst this pandemic, we understand the struggles and worries that many are experiencing. Justship recognizes the urgency and importance to ship oxygen concentrator to India from Singapore and we are ready to work them out with you.
