Our pricing is determined based on either the actual weight or the volumetric weight of an item, whichever is greater. This approach ensures a fair assessment of shipping costs, taking into account both the heaviness and the bulkiness of your items.

To ensure you receive the best possible value for your money, we have various weight bands with different price ranges across all our routes. This tiered pricing structure allows us to offer competitive rates tailored to the specific requirements of your shipment.

### Volumetric Weight Calculation

Volumetric weight measures the space an item occupies on a vehicle. This is relevant for items that are physically large but not very heavy. In such cases, the shipping cost is calculated based on the volumetric weight rather than the actual weight, reflecting the amount of space the item requires during transport.

No individual item can weigh (actual weight or volumetric weight) more than 68 kg. If your item exceeds this weight, it is too large to send.

When you book your individual route will have certain size and weight restrictions - our website will automatically check your sizes and weights when entered and show you the correct price.

### UK (Including Northern Ireland) to/from International Destinations

This service also takes into account the volumetric weight of a parcel when pricing but has additional restrictions. To learn how to calculate volumetric weight, please click here.

No individual item can weigh (actual weight or volumetric weight) more than 68 kg. If your item exceeds this weight, it is too large to send.

• Longest Length: 240 cm (surcharges apply for parcels between 117 and 240CM or if the second longest dimension exceeds 76CM)

• Combined Dimensions: The formula for the combined dimensions is as follows: the longest length plus twice the sum of the breadth and width must not exceed 330 cm. This formula is:

Example:

Imagine you have a box with these measurements:

• Longest Length (L): 80 cm
• Width (W): 20 cm

Step-by-Step Calculation:

1. Add Breadth and Width (two smaller sizes): 40 cm + 20 cm = 60 cm
2. Multiply by 2: 2 × 60 cm = 120 cm
3. Add the Longest Length: 80 cm + 120 cm = 200 cm

Result:

The total is 200 cm, which is less than the 330 cm limit. So, this box is acceptable to send.

### All other international routes

• No individual item can weigh (actual weight or volumetric weight) more than 68 kg. If your item exceeds this weight, it is too large to send.
• Maximum Length: The longest dimension of your item must not exceed 220CM (there are surcharges for items between 120CM and 220CM)

### Domestic UK Shipments (Northern Ireland to/from UK Express 24)

Within the UK and Northern Ireland, you are permitted to send parcels weighing up to 30 kg per item. When you book your shipment, our system will automatically calculate whether your item exceeds the allowable dimensions.

The restrictions for shipments on these routes are as follows:

• Maximum Length: The longest dimension of your item must not exceed 1.5 metres.

• Combined Dimensions: The formula for the combined dimensions is as follows: the longest length plus twice the sum of the breadth and width must not exceed 300 cm. This can be expressed as:

Example:

Imagine you have a box with these measurements:

• Longest Length (L): 80 cm
• Width (W): 20 cm

Step-by-Step Calculation:

1. Add Breadth and Width (two smaller sizes): 40 cm + 20 cm = 60 cm
2. Multiply by 2: 2 × 60 cm = 120 cm
3. Add the Longest Length: 80 cm + 120 cm = 200 cm

Result:

The total is 200 cm, which is less than the 300 cm limit. So, this box is acceptable to send.

### USA Mainland Domestic (Alaska/Hawaii unavailable)

• Items over 22KG incur additional surcharges
• Longest Length: 240 cm (surcharges apply for parcels between 117 and 240CM)

• Combined Dimensions: The formula for the combined dimensions is as follows: the longest length plus twice the sum of the breadth and width must not exceed 330 cm. This formula is:
