Shipping Human Remains
Global Shipping also assist families during difficult times by shipping the remains of their loved ones to the country of their choice. We don’t handle, carry or embalm a human remain. However, we are part of a process where families pay the last respect to human life, and we make it easier for families by coordinating the completion of the necessary documentation through the Ethiopian Embassy and booking/authorizing the transfer of the remains to the final resting place.
