Make sure your parcel meets our size and weight limits

Overview of sizes and weights for different types of packages:

  • Max. length (longest side) is 175cm
  • Max. girth (2x width + 2x height + length) is 300cm
  • Max. weight of a parcel shipped in Czech Republic and Slovakia is 50kg
  • Max. weight of a parcel for the DPD 10:00 and DPD 12:00 services is 31.5kg
  • Max. weight of a parcel for the Pickup points is 20kg
  • Max. weight of a parcel for international shipping is 31.5kg

It is a size parameter of the parcel (2x height + 2x width + length). The maximum girth is 300cm.

It's a parameter which is very important for air transport and it shows how much room the parcel takes. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) states the so-called TACT rules how is the volumetric weight calculated. To this day it can be calculated by a single formulae: length × width × height (in cm)/5 000.

Once we know the figure that resembles the volumetric weight we compare it with the real weight of the parcel. The higher figure determines the price.
