If you are freighting equipment to or from La Palma, please contact the ING Freight Officer (see
contact points).

Observers bringing visitor instruments are reminded to ensure that you allow enough time before and after your run to supervise the packing of your equipment.

ING will identify a contact person who will verify the contents and address to which the equipment is to be sent. A Contents Verification Form (Word | PDF) should be attached to each package/box being shipped from the ING.

Note that sea freight, in particular, can take much longer than you could expect. Even material which is air-freighted will often take longer than advertised, particularly if it has to clear customs at an intermediate destination. Allow as large a margin of error as possible !
