Sending Heavy Packages Abroad

Want to send a heavy package abroad? With parcel post (PostNL and bpost), you can send up to 30 kg. Therefore, ParcelParcel only works with express carriers such as: FedEx, DHL, DPD, and TNT. This way, you can easily send a heavy package that exceeds this 30 kg. The maximum dimensions and weight for express shipments are much larger, allowing you to easily and quickly send heavy packages to more than 220 countries worldwide.

Your shipment is picked up for free at a location of your choice, is better traceable and arrives faster at the destination. Want to know more about the difference between post and express? Then read our blog about postal and courier services.
