Parcel shipping becomes child's play when you use our services. However, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Packing instructions
    Goods have to be packed in a way which is suitable for transport and for processing by automated sorting equipment.
  • Exclusions from shipping
    We are unable to transport certain goods such as live animals, firearms and especially valuable goods such as precious metals and jewellery.
  • Dimensions
     Parcels can have a max. weight of 31.5 kg, a girth of 300 cm (circumference + longest side) and a length of 175 cm.
