How to prepare your shipment
1. Actual or volumetric weight?
Either volumetric weight or actual weight is used to determine the shipping rate.
- Actual weight is the weight of the parcel including packaging according to the scale.
- The volumetric weight is based on the dimensions of your shipment.
Volumetric weight is calculated as follows: Length x Width x Height in cm / 5000.

2. Packaging advice
Your shipment should be properly packaged before it can be transported. Therefore pay attenttion to the use shock resistant materials and use sturdy cardboard boxes to prevent damage.
3 Attach shipping labels
You must attach the shipping labels with a clear plastic folder on your parcel to make your package(s) ready for shipment. You are responsible for a clear plastic folder. Without this folder, the paperwork can be mislaid and thus your parcel. We therefore strongly recommend a clear plastic folder. In addition, it is advised to also write the address on your package(s).
