Shipping options for sending large parcels
As with smaller packages, you can choose between standard and express delivery. Standard shipping is generally cheaper, but delivery times can be longer.

At LetMeShip, you can choose from several CEP service providers for express services, such as DHL, UPS or local carriers in your area.
Shipping costs for large parcels
The shipping costs for large parcels depend on the dimensions, weight and destination of the parcel. For large parcels, pay attention to the possible difference between the volume weight and the actual weight, as the carriers always take the higher weight into account.
a) Actual weight: The weight that is displayed when you place the parcel on a scale.
b) Volumetric weight: Calculated by multiplying the length, width and height of the parcel (in centimetres) and dividing this number by a certain factor. Therefore, never pack your item(s) in a box that is too large.
What are the maximum dimensions per parcel?
DHL Express: Maximum dimensions are 119 cm per side.
FedEx international: The longest side may be 274 cm / The maximum girth* is 330 cm.
FedEx national: The longest side may be 270 cm / The maximum girth* is 400 cm.
TNT international (standard and express): 240 cm (L) x 120 cm (W) x 150 cm (H).
TNT national: 302 cm (L) x 203 cm (W) x 178 cm (H).
UPS: The longest side may be 270 cm / The maximum girth* is 400 cm.
DPD: The longest side may be 175 cm / the maximum girth* is 300 cm.
In addition to the maximum dimensions, there is also a maximum weight per parcel, for FedEx and TNT this is a maximum of 68 kg per parcel. Optionally, you can also ship the whole thing on a pallet.
*Girth = (1 x length + 2x width + 2x height)
