It's Exempted only when it's supplied by GTA (refer Notification 9/2017 IGST rate

In addition to above .... Transportation services by road is Exempted in term of notiNotifica 12/2017 CT(r), & more important as per the composit supply prescribed in section 8 of CGST Act , the principal supply EXEMPTED so the shipping charges therein bill cannot be charged 5% GST.

No....... that's what I replied .

I guess your concern is that you are unable to claim the Input of GST charged by the courier agency because you are supplying exempted goods, so you want to recover the GST from your customer.

 I think you can show shipping charges(what you incurred + plus GST charged by courier agency) in your invoice as shipping charge and show it as part of invoice value and as per the concept of composite supply whole amount will be exempted from GST.
