What can I send when shipping abroad?

In the case of air transport when shipping letters overseas

Pursuant to the 2010 EU Directive, shipments transported by air have to be X-rayed to comply with air safety rules. If the X-ray does not provide any information about the contents of the shipment, the shipment will be sent using a different mode of transport, such as a rail or road. If that is not possible, the shipment is returned to the sender.
