Bulky goods — challenges for B2B shipping:

Bulky items such as furniture, industrial equipment, machine components or spare parts pose particular challenges in B2B shipping. Due to their size, shape or weight, they cannot be shipped as standard parcels and therefore require special solutions.

The problem in detail:

  • Exceeding standard dimensions: Bulky goods often exceed the maximum dimensions and weights specified by parcel services, which makes shipping much more difficult.
  • More complex handling: Bulky items are not as easy to transport and sort as standard parcels, which makes the shipping process more complex and cost-intensive.
  • Increased risk of damage: Due to the bulky nature and higher weight, the risk of damage during transport is significantly increased.
