Export to India

Summary

Sales of all goods/products to India from Jul 2016 to Apr 2017 accounted for £0.54 billion, which were carried out in 24,483 shipments.

Trades that were worth less than £1 million accounted for £536.8 million of this total, which were carried out in 24,034 shipments.

This means that if we exclude the top 1.83% of shipments, the rest had an average value of just £22,335.76. The breakdown of these smaller trades is shown in the chart on the right for the top 10 categories.

Shipping and logistics

15,265 shipments went by air (63% of them via London Heathrow) and the other 8,642 went via sea ports.

3.7% of the shipments used customs special procedures (Inward Processing or Outward Processing Relief or Re-exports). Most shipments of goods to most destinations do not use these special procedures.
