Understanding your shipping costs

Volumetric weight is used to determine the weight of a package, which determines the shipping costs. By volumetric weight we mean a package’s density, which is the amount of space it occupies in relation to its actual weight – the bigger your shipment, the higher the volumetric weight.


How to pack properly

Regulations

To ensure your shipment arrives safely and in the same condition you sent it, you need to adhere to the relevant packing regulations.

Labelling

It’s vital labels are attached to your shipment correctly as they provide key information for carriers, like its destination and how it should be handled.

Fragile and high value shipments
