Höchstmaße eines Pakets

 

Girth (circumference + length) – serves to limit the dimensions of transported goods and must not exceed 3 m. In the case of parcels paid for online and shipped from a Pickup parcelshop, the max. combined circumference plus longest side is 2.50 m.

  • Airfreight parcels are priced on the basis of volumetric weight in cases where this exceeds the actual weight in kg. The volumetric weight indicates how much space a parcel occupies within the aircraft in relation to its weight and, in the interests of economic and ecological loading on passenger aircraft, is calculated using the following formula:
     length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm) / 5,000 (cm3/KG).
  • The volumetric weight is only relevant to DPD EXPRESS parcels.
  •  Please note that since 01.06.2013 only the formula (/5000 cm3/KG) has been used for the calculation. Any divergent regulations are no longer valid.
